Tell us a little bit more about your organisation  

Hale Communications are Business, Telecoms and Digital Technology experts. 

Based in Altrincham, Cheshire, we have been working with businesses and helping them to save money for over 30 years. 

We were founded in the 80s at the forefront of the mobile phone revolution when phones were like bricks!  Fast forward 30 years and how times have changed. Today, technology touches almost everything we do both in our personal and working lives.   

As technology evolved, we recognised that we needed to bring in additional expertise to be able to fully service our customers and since joining forces with one of the North-West’s leading business technology transformation experts, inTec Business Solutions, last year we are now so much more than just telecoms. 

We now specialise in optimisation, helping businesses use technology to streamline processes, increase productivity and improve customer satisfaction. Find out how we could help YOUR business here
