Expect Talent

'I am writing to say how delighted I am with my new VOIP phone system which TSG recently installed within my recruitment business. We currently conduct on average 45 telephones based interviews per week, many of which are with candidates based nationally and internationally.

For the last 5 months our telephone bill has been increasing and was averaging approximately €600.00 per month. The installation of the VOIP system has made a significant difference to costs and we have already seen a 75% reduction in our phone costs and we are anticipating an average phone bill now of just €150.00. This means that we will see a return on our investment within just 2 months!!

In addition we are planning to open phone lines routed through Belfast, Dublin, London and other parts of Europe to increase our exposure and create international look and feel of a much larger organisation which will in turn result in increased revenue and new markets for Expect. This is all possible as a result of our new VOIP system and all these calls will come into our Cork branch.

The service as always has been top class, and I look forward to reaping the benefits of reduced costs for many years to come. Once again I would have no hesitation in recommending TSG for telecoms or IT solutions.'

Allspace Ltd.

'Established in 1994, Allspace Limited has grown to become Ireland's largest supplier for the hire of portable buildings and the sale of modular and relocatable buildings to the construction, business, leisure and public sectors.

We recently decided to install the 'Goldmine' CRM system into all of our depots across Ireland. This project was seen as a top priority for everyone in Allspace, and the timing of its rollout was considered crucial - we needed every depot to begin capturing information on Goldmine as quickly as possible.

The Munster depot experienced problems immediately and were unable to install the 'Goldmine' programme onto our system. Despite all the best efforts of the IT Department of our parent company in the UK, no solution was to be found, and as a consequence, the roll-out of the 'Goldmine' programme was being held up.

I have worked with TSG in the past, and without hesitation I knew that they were the company we needed to solve our problem. The level of service we received from TSG was outstanding. This service included TSG taking delivery of the affected computer system on the Thursday before the Easter Break, and working on the issue, from home, across the Easter Holidays.

The root cause of the problem was extremely complex and which our own in-house IT Department was unable to identify. However, TSG isolated the problem, found a solution, and were able to get us up and running. I believe that had I not called in TSG, we would still not have the 'Goldmine' system in operation.

If you have an issue with your IT systems, or would like the peace of mind achieved by knowing that you have an IT solutions provider that will go beyond the call of duty to solve your problems, then you need to speak to TSG.'

KJ O'Brien & Co.

'We have been a customer of TSG now for a good number of years. TSG have provided various services to our business over the years including, IT network management & support, offsite backup services, website hosting and IT hardware supply & support. All of these services have been provided with the professionalism and expertise that we have come to expect from your company. One service that you provided stands out from the rest and this testimonial is in recognition of that.

In October 2007 we contracted TSG to upgrade our network, our server and some of our PC's. The decision to do it in October was a very difficult decision to take, as that is our busiest time for filing tax returns and had anything gone wrong it would have been a total disaster for our business. The planning and timing that you and your staff, in particular Rory and Mike, put into the project ensured a smooth installation and from day 1 the whole system worked like a dream. The after sale service and support since then has been tremendous and we look forward to many more years doing business with TSG.'

Cronin Environmental

'We have been using the remote back up service provided by TSG Ltd. for the past two years. Recently, we had a situation where a member of staff inadvertently deleted the entire invoice register for 2008 from our system. Had we not been using the service provided by TSG, the consequences would have been disastrous.

However, because all of our data is backed up remotely every night, the task of retrieving the data was a simple two step operation which we were able to organise from our office.

TSG saved Cronin Environmental considerable grief, time and money and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sean and his staff.'

Their level of customer service is superb and all staff are highly approachable and helpful. We have already recommended TSG to business partners and will certainly recommend them to others in the future.'

Financial Wellbeing

'After setting up my company Financial Wellbeing I needed to source a domain name for my company. I also needed web hosting and personalised email addresses. This was an important part of my business and this is why I approached you.

You quickly took my problem away and organised my new domain name www.financialwellbeing.ie within 24-hours. This domain name will now hosts my new website. You also organised personalised email address for Financial Wellbeing. However, what was more impressive was that I didn't have to do anything. A member of your staff called Mike Nowak rang me up and after I clicked on your website he then took control of my computer. He change my setting so that my emails now arrive to my outbox and the whole process was flawless.

I have not had issue with my email account since this was set up and for someone who prefers to deal with people than computers this is very important. I see by your website that TSG is a young, innovative company that provides high quality IT and communications solutions to small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) all over Ireland.

Well I am a small business and can back up your statement on high quality IT solutions.'

- Alan M. Cuthbert QFA, Financial Planner, Financial Wellbeing



Magner Homes

I would like to sincerely thank Sean Ware and his fantastic team at TSG for their help with transforming the way our company handles critical business information. I would highly recommend TSG for your business information needs. TSG facilitated a seamless transition of our business information system from a central server based system to Google Apps.

I met with Sean a small while ago to learn more about his business and the services that TSG could help us at Magner Homes.

Sean's experience shone through in conversation. He gave me live demonstration of the Google Apps technology. He also showed me some of the techniques that TSG use with Google Apps technology to manage their own business. I have already copied these techniques into our own business where they are helping us to become more efficient and streamlined.

It took only 2 weeks from meeting Sean Ware for TSG to migrate our business onto Google Apps. It all happened over a single weekend. It was extremely well planned and executed. There was no downtime and there was no information lost.

Magner Homes has a small management team at its core but the distributed nature of the business meant that information sharing in the past was a challenge. We now have a world class solution to our business information needs. This was a big step toward improving the way our company is run. I have Sean Ware and his team at TSG to thank for making this happen.

- Ed O'Donoghue, Director, Magner Homes Ltd.



In running a web based company - FindaConferenceVenue.com - access to my computer and the software that is loaded on it is essential to my day to day operations.

Last week I started to get strange messages on my desk top and blank blue screens, I feared the worst and so called TSG Solutions for IT support. Within a minute I was talking to Mike and he put my mind at ease. Without me having to leave my office (which is 45 minute drive into the city) I had expert IT support at hand. Mike could log into my computer remotely and diagnose the problem. Within an hour I had access to my computer back and able to continue with my day.

What a fantastic service that saved me losing a days work.

Thanks to Sean and his team for making technology simplify my work day, that means a lot to a nontechy.
