How one company improved their telecoms for remote working

At Team Partners Telecommunications (TP Tele) we tend not to give much away about our customers on the basis that it’s their business who they choose to buy from, no one else’s.

New year, new direction! Many reading this will still remember a time when if we worked for a company we went too the office and we had our own desk.
