We recently had a drain blocked and tried all the usual DIY methods to unblock it. Caustic soda was copiously poured down the sink but it did not unblock the pipe. Next Spirit of Salts(hydrochloric acid) was used and still the pipe remained blocked. When we traced the pipe it was found going through the property below with no external access to rod out the obstruction. In the end we had to get an expert on unblocking outlet pipe work. They completed the job in quick time and their costs were very reasonable. Our drains are now working smoothly again.
Our customer in Marylebone London felt that when they were advised badly by a previous telecoms supplier and was not what their business needed. They selected us because after having conducted business with us for a number of years that they could trust us. We recommended a new system carefully added all the applications that could enhance the business communications. The new system was provided at a cost below budget.
The customer said “Smartinfo Ltd has changed our office phone working practices to the betterment of our business. They trained us in the proper use of the functionality and everything in our communications is flowing smoothly(like our drains!).

Free Wi-Fi will be made available to London’s commuters in time for the Olympics. That is, when the Tube drivers aren’t on strike leaving half the network crippled for days at a time.
Everyone loves a freebie, especially if it comes in invisible wireless waves of Wi-Fi enjoyment. Thankfully for the typical grumpy Londoner, users of the Underground subway system will receive free Wi-Fi during July and August.
The catch? There isn’t one as it happens, with anyone able to use the free Wi-Fi during the Olympics and beyond, thanks to Virgin Media. If there were one, however, it would be that once the slightly later Paralympic Games are over, non-Virgin customers will be shuttered out.

Be sure to select a communications provider that can provide your business with what it needs – not what they want to supply you.
A supplier should have a number of vendor and supply options.
Often we have been in competitive situations against a ‘One-man-band’ or ‘man-and-a-van’ whilst a customer may save £50-£100 with such an out fit, there are many downsides, we recommend you look for all these in any new comms provider.
1) Support – a depth of back office support, in telephony, adsl, and mobile technologies
2) A selection of vendor equipment (for features, look and feel, integration to other systems in the business)
3) A selection of Tier 1 network providers, with proper wholesale relationship to provide a higher level of service than if you were direct
If you are a small business looking to save money it may be a false economy to buy cheap today, but have to reinvest a year down the line if the cheap option purchased can’t handle voip or voicemail etc..

Ideally every small business should have at least two phone lines and a Phone System to field calls, with professional voicemail and features similar to those used by large companies. People working from home do not want to use the domestic phone line and number for their business.
Smartinfo offer SmartHorizon – The Professional Solution
SmartHorizon gives all the features of a fully blown Phone System, at a fraction of the cost.
We supply you with a Cisco business phone which connects to us via your broadband. The phone is delivered already set up to your configuration – Phone no. etc.
You will have a new phone number, with an area code of your choice.
Do not worry if you want to alter your set up as you will have access to a web ‘portal’ which will enable you to make changes.
A few of the benefits that come with SmartHorizon:
- Line Rental is included in the £12.50 monthly fee. Each phone has a line.
- Never miss a call. If you are engaged and someone calls they will be put through to voicemail.
- Call log. All calls – including missed – calls are logged.
- Voicemail. Voice mail messages can be sent to email.
- Directory – Create your directory by capturing the caller’s number.
- Twin your phone with your mobile – both can ring simultaneously or sequentially.
- ‘Night service’ message. Different message for when the office closes – You choose the time.
- Auto Attendant – press 1 for Sales, 2 for Accounts etc gives the impression of scale.
- You can even record calls. During a call instruct the system to record and it will do so from the beginning of the call. You then simply download the ‘file’.
The only additional cost is a £200.00 one off set up fee which includes the pre-configured Cisco Phone. You simply plug the phone into your Router and start making and receiving calls.
SmartHorizon uses the Broadsoft platform (the world’s largest hosted provider) to power our services. The system evolves from us implementing our client’s wishes. Consequently there are all the features you would expect with additional ones being added all the time.
We look forward to helping you resolve this common issue for a monthly charge that is less than the rental of a BT Business Analogue Phone Line.
Smartinfo Ltd are available to help.

The prosecution services would not be pursuing the matter unless they were satisfied there is a case to answer.
Terry should do what is best for the team and step aside until the case is concluded. If he is found not guilty then he can resume the captaincy if he still wants it. We have advocated the use of electronic listening devices on the players as a means of policing match dialogue between opponents during play.
The devices are so microscopic that they would not impede a player in their normal game. Smartinfo Ltd can provide these devices, fit them and monitor them for any match.

Smartinfo Ltd are located in City of London, its based leading supplier of Alcatel, Mitel and Samsung telephone systems along with electronic surveillance and mobile phone solutions.
As business innovator and market leaders, employees at Smartinfo are convinced that all telephone system users should make their telephone systems work harder for them. There are many ways this can be achieved.
Key personnel can be setup to work from a home extension and receive all their calls in the normal way. The caller can’t tell if the receipient is in the office or not. Cut out the travel time and get more work done. This is achieved by IP telephony.
By the addition of a dialler application to the system the credit control part of the business can be made 50% more effective. It is hard the believe but 2 people doing the work of 3 is a fantastic result for any business.
