The telephone system which passes the test

anywhere you happen to be

One of the most annoying things is waiting. You have a doctor’s appointment at 4:40 P.M. and you find yourself being number 65 with quite a queue before you. You were on time but you will be seen one hour after the time of your scheduled appointment.

Monday I went for a doctor’s visit and I found myself in this exact situation. A long time ago, in waiting rooms, people would read, usually celebrity gossip or car magazines, because gender is still gender.

My second-born recently came into the world and the days following the happy event have been very high-paced and not easy to manage: the little one to look after, my wife in the hospital and work, with all its deadlines and pending matters.

I was still able to fully enjoy the wonderful emotions of the event, regardless of the fact that it is sudden and not easy to plan, without any apprehension because of work, thanks to our technology and to its flexibility.

They say, it’s not really the best time to make an investment

Investire? Qui e ora!
Make an investment? Here and now!

In the past few days I have been contacting various Italian telephone system installers on the subject of the Open Days my company is organizing.

Among the usual complaints, both true and false, I happened to hear:

‘You know, Mr. Nicolai, evaluating a new brand, starting a new partnership is an investment, it is important to invest time, money, resources…’
