What Businesses Say About Us

Completely satisfied with my new communications installation, from enquiry to pricing, to implementation. Attention to detail has been exemplary.

S Spinks

It really has been invaluable and so reassuring to know that you have been on the end of an email or phone to make the changes that we have asked for.  It has made our lives so much less stressful to know that we have had the flexibility that the system offers and has enabled us all to carry on working and looking after our clients.

H. Pole

Amazing company to work with, they have all been so proactive and helpful, nothing has been too much trouble and we are so pleased with our new phone system. It also came in at a saving for the charity compared to our previous supplier. I couldn’t recommend the Pink team highly enough.

H. Makaritis

Always professional and quick to respond to any changes I require. I would recommend Pink to any company looking for an efficient and helpful telecommunications provider.


I must say we have been very impressed with the team sorting this all out for us especially during these difficult times we are all faced with.
