  4. We have been using Oberoi’s services for over 15 years and my first thought is that we take it for granted. So seamless, and integrated, is the operation that our clients still believe our team is larger than it is. Thank you

  5. Great service and great company to work with!

    Never once have we had any issue with the services Oberoi provide my business. Friendly and polite answering service and the mail handling is very efficient.

    Would highly recommend to any sized business, big or small.

  6. Having worked with Oberoi for a couple of years, they have always provided a friendly and professional service to us and our customers. As an online retailer, having a call answering service during un-manned office hours has ensured our customers know their query has been recorded.

  7. We have used Oberoi for about ten years now, and they have been consistently prompt and accurate with their messaging, we would definitely recommend them.

  8. Our initial needs of a simple messaging service were met by Moneypenny but as our company expanded over the last 18 months we needed a much more attentive and personal service.

    Having had our registered and mailing office with Oberoi for 12 months and always having experienced exceptional service from everyone it seemed a logical step to approach them four our call handling and live chat service.

    Initially we were impressed with their immediate response, helpfulness and willingness to work with our own systems.

    From enquiry to going live was done in around a week, and we can now boast to having 24/7 customer service rather than our previous 9-5 Mon-Fri operation.

    In essence we have loved the whole experience with Oberoi, nothing is too much trouble and everyone is incredibly accommodating.
