Technology Box is a successful, dynamic company based in Hastings, East Sussex, staffed by enthusiastic and dedicated people who are into technology in all its forms and expressions. Our primary focus is helping our customers to achieve their business objectives through the intelligent use of technology.
Technology Box was born out of a passion for great technology and the firm belief that prosperity only comes from offering our customers a long term relationship and a team of outstanding engineers to provide customised systems that match individual requirements. We are approachable, friendly and easy to work with and always pushing to see how new technologies work.
Since our foundation, we have kept all of our original customers and achieve consistently excellent feedback on our level of service which is described as being helpful, conscientious, reliable and fast. We are skilled technologists, but we know that the technology is just a tool, not an end in itself.
Our enthusiasm doesn't blind us to the fact that every new gadget that comes along may not be a genuine improvement. We have very high standards and are great believers in well executed simplicity and reliability using proven technologies. We do maintain that the continuing development of voice and data systems gives every business the chance to be more productive, provide better service, and save costs.
Technology Box continues to grow and investigate new technologies.
