OBN Testimonial and IT Review
Stanley invested in the IP phone system in 2017 with the Yealink digital handsets. To date the phones have been faultless and can be configured to any requirement effortlessly. OBN were in and out in a day and have delivered exception support throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending this system which will add value to any size of business.
