What our Customers Say

Rickerbys LLP

'When new technology is released, Total allow us to trial the latest devices prior to purchase, giving us direct access to innovative telecommunication tools.

Goldsmith Williams Solicitors

‘All in all I am extremely happy with the entire service that Total have provided; from the professional service and transparency that was shown with the handling of our number transfers (that went without a hitch) to the cost reduction we are experiencing.’

BPE Solicitors LLP

‘Total’s thorough understanding of the legal sector and its unique challenges was a great help when they came to provide us with a bespoke solution.'

Applied Card Technologies Ltd

‘Our decision to select Total was based on the system, it’s functionality and price but I’m delighted to see Total’s customer service in supporting us through unplanned events has been exemplary.’

Henmans LLP

'The fact that we have used Total for over 10 years is the best testament to the professionalism and service that Total offer.

Hartley & Worstenholme

Case Studies

Premier Training

Premier met Total in 2005; at the time they were an emerging company based in Trowbridge before expanding to three main sites incorporating Sales, Customer Service and Accounts.

"Everything was so smooth from the transition onwards. Total won our hearts in the process as well."


Goughs Solicitors

Goughs Solicitors had a traditional hub and spoke 2 MG leased line network and ADSL. Working alongside Total, this leading law firm consolidated its telecoms data infrastructure, introducing a secure, reslient and scalable solution.

"Total ticked all of the boxes. Their advice and industry expertise has proved invaluable."


Scarlet Couriers

Scarlet wanted to improve business efficiency and maximise staff utilisation by linking all of their offices with one phone system which would grow alongside the company.

“Total were very innovative and even went as far as investigating a wireless connectivity solution. Instead, they created an IP VPN based on ADSL technology, which works every bit as well.”


Medicals Direct Group

The implementation of the Bluetooth Digital Pen and Paper solution, which transfers handwriting via bespoke forms, became a natural choice.

"As a result timescales have been cut right down. Now when a report arrives back it is automatically uploaded on to our secure website for the insurance client to download."


Tyco Electronics UK Ltd

With over 600 lines across 15 sites, as well as 300 homeworkers, the company also needed complete clarity over number ownership and their respective destinations.

"Whilst we have achieved substantial cost savings, the clarity we have gained as a result of the audit has been a real added benefit."


Wiggin LLP

When Wiggin began to outgrow their leased line, a 10Mb Ethernet circuit was installed with the capacity to work at ten times this speed due to the installation of a 100Mb bearer.

"The fast, powerful circuit provides a cost-effective solution, supporting our voice, data and video whilst utilising the Ethernet circuit for data storage and disaster recovery."


Carter Construction

We now have over 160 mobiles with Total, as well as our landline provision, and have undertaken a number of systems installs.

"Along with taking advantage of cross-savings, Total competently manage our telecoms, so we are able to concentrate on other aspects of our business."


Calthorpe Estates

Connecting the two sites would not have been possible with Calthorpe’s existing system. Instead IP telephony was the obvious solution to provide easy to use, reliable communication and seamless continuity between the premises.

"The sound quality of those users with IP phones via networked PCs is superb and Reception find the Avaya system straightforward to use, despite the differing locations of staff."


Everyclick Ltd

With this in mind and following full consultation, a new Avaya system was installed which could grow with the company.

"I greatly value Avaya's functionality and find it reliable and easy to use. It suits our present needs but is fully scalable for future expansion."


Chas A Blatchford & Sons Ltd

What was required was a co-ordinated approach to improve communications and deliver enhanced, proactive service and cost efficiency.

"Following BlackBerry implementation instant access to email on the move has lead to improvements in customer service and enhanced response times throughout the business."
