Testimonials

“Glide Business has been outstanding in everything from the approachability, skill and responsiveness of the sales and technical teams, through to the solution design, seamless implementation and ongoing support.

Compared to our previous supplier, the service is cheaper, more reliable and provides an all-around better service – I wish we had moved years ago.”

Kay Phillips, Group IT Manager, ARRK Europe Ltd

“It was a very smooth process. They’re very professional and always make sure we have enough information on what they’re doing and how they’re improving. Students are very happy. They finally had the internet they wanted and were paying for, and could get on with their university tasks, speak to family, friends, and everything they wanted.”

YPP

“Students today have many devices that require internet connections. Taking away WiFi is like taking away oxygen. Each and every milestone, be that complete re-cabling of the building through to floor by floor access point installations, they stuck to. We’ve had no complaints about the WiFi since. The internet service Glide Student provides is absolutely best in class and is a model we’re going to replicate across the rest of our estate.”

iQ

“Glide Business provide an excellent service. Together with a very high technical skill set, they bring commercial acumen and sense along with strategic thinking around projects.”

Craig Joy, Head of IT, Coventry Transport Museum
