Twenty-four hour telephone support is provided to ensure customers can speak with someone in an emergency after business hours and on weekends.

Our underlying philosophy is that the sharing of information and knowledge within the organisation and with our customers will assist in partnerships, improve customer acquisition and retention and influence the design of our strategy, end-to-end processes and the nature of the services we offer.
