“From the time I searched for a company to assist us establish the communication / voice network in our Melbourne warehouse, Candour Communication has delivered over and above my expectations.

My call was answered promptly. When Bernie Roach came on site he took the time to explain options to me in language I could understand. Debbie and Richard followed through with the agreed plans, and both provided fantastic customer service, turning up when scheduled, following up on queries, and like Bernie, going out of their way to make sure all was working and we understood the system. From this first engagement we have continued to work with Bernie and the team as we link our Sydney sales office with the Melbourne office. Again all was easy from our side. Everything happened with precision and good humour.”
