Telephone System Maintenance FAQ…
How long could your business survive if your telephone system failed?
If the answer is not very long, then you need to consider the risks to your business if you haven’t already got a contract in place.
why should i consider telephone system maintenance for my business?
If your telephone system goes down, the disruption it can cause can have a detrimental effect on your company if not dealt with immediately. You may be running the risk of waiting days for your telecoms problem to be investigated and resolved. This could result in, not only a loss of earnings for your business but more importantly, it can have a negative effect on how your clients view your customer service support. With a maintenance package from Tech Advance, it ensures you have predefined engineering response time agreed for major faults so you can avoid extended downtime which will often cost your business more in the long run.
what are the costs of maintenance service cover for my phone system?
The price of maintenance support contracts is generally based on the cost to replace the hardware covered, so it is possible to keep costs down to a minimum by just covering your core systems effectively and excluding the telephone handsets from the contract. Replacement handsets for most systems can be purchased on next day delivery and it is also easy to identify a faulty phone without the need for an engineer to visit your site.
How quickly can you reach us in the event of a call-out?
We use a network of qualified and experienced telecoms engineers across the UK, which means we can respond fast and provide your business with a reliable service at very competitive rates.

With Tech Advance, you only deal with a single point of contact from incident report to fix, saving you even more time and hassle in the process.

A maintenance agreement can act as a valuable insurance company, ensuring that minor faults don’t become major problems.
