March 24, 2010 - PRLog -- This past year Wall to Wall communications Ltd has performed strongly despite the recent turbulence of the market. We have experienced a slight decrease in turnover but this has been in line with what we had anticipated. Careful forward planning has ensured that we stay ahead of the game through cutting costs where possible; without affecting our high standard of service. The following initiatives have all contributed to the strength of our current position.

Ownership of premises:
Investment in the future of the company has been demonstrated through the purchasing of business premises. The new office is a three storey building based in Sutton, Surrey comprising of a workshop and dispatch area, an admin and accounts floor, and a sales, finance and marketing department. A System Design Workshop is currently under development which will provide us with the increased space and facilities to continue with this growing aspect of our business. The ownership of this business premises at Unilink House has allowed Wall to Wall Communications to control utility and maintenance costs which has contributed to the efficiency of our outgoings. Our leasing era has ended!

Green Initiatives:
A move towards green business activities has contributed to this decrease in unnecessary spending. Saving energy through diligence with lighting and heating in the office has proven economically as well as environmentally sensible. We are also moving towards a ‘paper-free’ office wherever possible through the use of email rather than post. Recycling has been part of our environmental policy for many years and will continue into the future. All used paper is shredded and re-used for packing. In addition to our stringent recycling policy we have recently begun to operate meetings over Skype thus reducing our carbon footprint in terms of miles travelled and fuel used.  

Investing in People:
Towards the end of 2009 Wall to Wall Communications took steps to increase brand awareness within the marketplace through hiring a Marketing Officer, Laura, for whom a priority has been to raise the Company’s profile. This has been a huge success so far with the website gaining hits every week. We have introduced a ‘Meet the Team’ page as well as ‘Newsflash’, with ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ and a revised ‘Hire page’ currently in development. We have also launched social networking sites across Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. These sites have cemented our online presence and, in addition to our Wordpress blog, have directed new clients to our services. They also allow another form of communication between account managers and their clients, something which we encourage wholeheartedly. More information on our social networking activities can be found within our ‘Newsflash’ page.

Wall to Wall Communications is soon to launch a monthly newsletter which will feature company news and exciting product launches. We will also be offering the opportunity to advertise within this newsletter which will have a circulation of approx 1400. In addition to this, we have received positive media coverage and have ongoing media interest in projects we are currently working on.

The team has grown in other departments too; admin has welcomed Georgie, and Nick has replaced Enlin in finance. We wish Enlin congratulations on the birth of her baby boy in December and look forward to seeing her back after her Maternity leave is over. The sales team has expanded with the addition of Natasha who assists our National Accounts Manager, Ola, whilst learning the ropes in terms of the rest of the company. As of the next academic year (September 2010), we also plan to take on a local young apprentice within the workshop who will learn about Sytem Design and Programming amongst other technical skills. Work experience placements for secondary aged students are available on an ongoing basis within all departments. In the past year we have had one recurring student, James, who has shown an interest and flair in the marketing and IT aspects of the company.  

Continuation of Excellent Quality of Service:
It is our firm belief that the ongoing success of Wall to Wall Communications is due to the first rate service we offer to our clients both at the point of sale and after sales care. It seems that, even in a time of recession, health and safety is something which companies cannot and will not compromise on. Our ongoing maintenance and support services have kept us afloat during this difficult economic situation.

Professional accreditations gained or renewed last year included ISO 9001:2008 and SAFEContractor.

The Future: New Year, New Opportunities:
2009/2010 – 2010/2011 is full of exciting prospects for Wall to Wall Communications. We hope to continue our partnerships with companies working at the Olympic development site in Stratford. So far we have installed comms systems on site for Senator Security, BAM Nuttall and Keltbray.  

Our work with University College London continues and we have recently upgraded the onsite trunked multi-site system. This represents our high standard and first rate capabilities with designing bespoke communications systems to fit the clients’ specific needs; something we are seeing requested more and more. Further in-depth details can be supplied, just give us a call and ask for Ola.

The demand for digital systems has been steadily picking up pace and we were delighted to have supplied our first digital systems this past year. With the new System Design Workshop and an apprentice on the staff we will have the ability to continue with this exciting new technology on an even greater scale. Clients are now encouraged to visit for FREE live demos and a spot of refreshments with our engineers and account executives.

Last year we launched Icom’s iDAS system which has received great interest. This year we have plenty more exciting products to launch. Radio upgrades, software upgrades and tracking systems. By remaining up to date with these technological developments and working on maintaining strong relationships with our manufacturing partners we are able to provide workable comms solutions and excellent service to all existing and new clientele.

We are optimistic about the future of Wall to Wall Communications. We are going into our 32nd year of trading this year and are confident that we will continue to go from strength to strength.
