    Exsel Group provides us with over 180 business mobile phones, helping staff in a variety of roles and in locations all around the country, to work productively and efficiently.

    “The Muir Group employs over 360 staff in vast and diverse projects from the North of Scotland to the North of England. So it’s vital our staff have communications that are reliable, consistent and with high quality service.


    We have found Exsel to more than meet these requirements. The staff are friendly, helpful and prompt to respond to any queries or issues either by phone, email or even in person.

    We have built a great relationship with the Exsel Group and hope this continues for many years.”

    Michael Marek, ICT Manager at Richmond Fellowship Scotland, said:

    “When our existing suppliers insisted that we move network it soon became obvious that the new service provided was not fit for purpose, and they were unable to provide a suitable alternative.


    We engaged with the team at Exsel Group who were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and quickly came up with an ideal solution to our problem.


    The implementation of the solution was well planned and coordinated and was expedited with minimal issues.


    The team are a pleasure to deal with, and always available either in person, by phone or by email to help with new initiatives or to discuss new ideas.


    We need to be confident that any provider we work with gets to know our business and what we’re about, and is able to bring us ideas, solutions, or options that will assist our communication strategy.


    Going forward we certainly hope that Exsel Group will be able to continue to fulfil this role and look forward to a long term partnership.”

    Stephen Stewart, Systems Admin Team Leader at Caledonian Alloys said:

    “I have been using Exsel for a number of years and have been delighted by the service I receive. I have transitioned more and more services to Exsel, Mobile devices, Internet Lines, Support, and having it all under the one roof with such fantastic response times and friendly staff makes my job and life a lot easier.


    The whole team has done an incredible job and helped me streamline my department. I can’t recommend Exsel Group highly enough to help drive your business forward while lowering costs.”
