Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS and Microsoft’s Windows 8, or something else? If you use Macs in your office then iOS is the obvious choice, however if you run Windows PCs or a combination of the two then you might be better off using Google’s android. If you need to use your desktop applications on the go then Windows Surface tablets have better integration with desktop computers running Windows. Our experts can help you decide which is best for your business and talk you through the pros and cons of each operating system and type of tablet.
The difference between a 10-inch screen and a 7-inch screen may sound minimal, but the latter will slip into your coat pocket while the former will require a bag or a briefcase. 10-inch tablets are great for meetings and presentations, allowing you to share your documents with a group. 7-inch tablets are more portable and generally have better battery life, making them better for working while you commute.

Your employee Tim is a real ambassador to your company. He’s the perfect gentleman, very polite and very helpful. We were very pleased with all of your installation staff and our new phone system. Well done!
Great customer service, quick replies and resolution times - essential at times of communication emergencies! We're always keen to support local businesses and have found that the service and pricing offered is second to none.

We have just renewed our mobile contract with Lister for another 2 years. The service from Lister and especially Tom was amazing and we are very happy to recommend.
We have used Lister Unified Communications for the last 3 years. I find the simplicity of our bill and the ability to talk to our account manager when we need to is essential to keeping our mobile communications always working at peak efficiency. I thoroughly recommend Lister services to any business looking for the highest levels of service.
As a top 40 firm of chartered accountants and business advisers with strong reputation both regionally and nationally, we are focused on working with suppliers that we can truly depend on. For over 7 years Lister Unified Communications has delivered quality telephone services throughout our business. The unification of our services over the last few years has really improved the efficiently and cost effectiveness of the solutions that we use. If your business is looking for a strong backbone to its telecoms infrastructure we highly recommend Lister.
Communications is key to our business as we deliver to over 260 retail stores across the UK every single night. It is not untypical for us to deliver 1,000 trailers per day across the country. For each one, we deliver within a window of 15 minutes. Lister Communications play a key role in our telecommunications strategy.
We use Lister for our company communications, they provide us with the benefit of their expertise and knowledge and we reply on their experience and advisory service when helping our clients with new challenges.
Please share with your team the fact that your organisation is supporting us in a ‘business as usual way’ means that our organisation can operate in that way too.
The Lister team are excellent account managers, giving clear and prompt communication in a friendly, pragmatic fashion. They continually impresses with their manner, commitment and willingness to go the extra mile.
We decided to install the TomTom WORK system to provide our office with live information as to vehicle locations, two way communications between van and office for emergency call outs and navigation for the engineers direct to the customer’s premises. We are able to respond efficiently to customer call outs and monitor live progress of the engineer’s response to the call out through confirmed notification of job completion.
This new telephone system has really brought the sites together and that’s something that really pleases me. As a business we provide our divisions with the latest and most suitable equipment for the job and we have also now done this with our communications systems. I particularly like the visibility we have across all the sites and this has made our customer service far more seamless and we are of course now enjoying free calls between sites.
