"We've been customers of First Office for many years and have always been happy with their helpfulness, speed, knowledge and price. Last night they excelled themselves however: at 7.10pm our very old phone system's main unit died meaning we were faced with the prospect of 35 phone sales guys unable to do any work today. Unsurprisingly at that time no one was still in the office at First Office and so I emailed technical support giving a full rundown of the symptoms and my amateur diagnosis; a director of the firm called me at 8pm to say he'd been passed the message and an engineer had already been booked to attend site at 8.15am today. This morning I was stuck in traffic and didn't arrive until 8.35am by which time the engineer had turned up, fitted a whole new unit, reprogrammed and tested it and had already left ! Frankly, phenomenal !"

First Office are now our preferred supplier for all our copiers and printers and have able to provide us with solutions wherever and whenever required. We look forward to a long standing relationship with them."

"It is important to us at Hoopers to use local companies where ever possible and have found First Office simply excellent for all of our telecoms needs. From choosing them for the installation of our new system; to the day to day support they are with us all the way. We cannot speak highly enough of them and would not hesitate to recommend them."
Carol Atkinson - Hoopers Limited
"Our experience of First Office Systems has been absolutely superb. Like Commercial Insurance.... the first day is all about price, but the next 364 days are all about 'service', and First Office score on both counts. A great company. Always helpful.
Ian Andrew - Michael James Insurance
"As Operations Assistant at Konditor & Cook, I was placed in charge of overseeing the implementation of new telecommunications infrastructure from First Office and they have been great at every step. Much time has passed since then, but no issue was ever too big or too small for them to handle and they have continued to provide support and assistance of high levels all the time. Thumbs up for Matt and Andy from support for their great assistance every time we need it!"
Mantas Miliunas - Konditor & Cook - 5 Star Facebook Rating
"As a new customer to First Office Systems I was a bit wary about facing yet another "photocopier salesman", but I was pleasantly surprised. F.O.S showed us fairness, integrity and efficiency in every way. So far, we could not expect better service and I would recommend to anyone. Our special thanks to Andy who oversaw everything for us - a top man"
The Bridge Trust, West Kent - 5 Star Facebook Rating

"First Office is old fashioned! For a high-tech company with top flight copying engineers and state-of-the-art products, there is an element of First Office Systems which is very old fashioned... and that is their service. By which I mean they offer good-old-fashioned service with a smile, where nothing is too much trouble and a can-do attitude that permeates throughout the company. Their knowledgeable team of experts in both sales and support have held our hand for over 20 years and supplied and maintained our copiers during that time with a service second to none. Thank you, and here’s to the next 20! I can thoroughly recommend First Office, second to none.”
R A Bryant-Funnell, MD - New Leaf Publishing Limited
"Just a quick note to say thanks for all you did for us in the ghastly process of moving – it all went remarkably smoothly in the end. Thanks guys, good job."
Patrick Rampton, Director - Rampton Basely
"I dealt with First Office with the company I previously worked for and was keen to carry on working with them to receive the very high levels of support and office printing services they could offer. They are still consistently great, with Andy Brett as our account manager and are always very quick to resolve any issues we have come across. I hope we continue to work alongside First Office to provide all our printing services for many years to come. Chris Rogers ICT Manager, Clearstep, East Grinstead, West Sussex"
Chris Rogers - Clearstep, East Grinstead, West Sussex
"EISL has grown rapidly over the past three years, from 3 to 30 staff and this has involved two office moves and fit out; the purchase and installation of a new telephone system and the purchase of new furniture and printing equipment. We cannot speak highly enough of the professional and friendly services we have received from First Office. Nothing has been too much trouble for them and their experience and advice has saved us from making a number of potentially costly mistakes. Their total package of services has enabled us to concentrate and get on with doing what we do best - growing our business. "
Alan Clarke - EISL, Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
"First Office Systems worked on two floors of our offices in London SE1, one a ground floor entrance which required extensive and complex refurbishment. The company's attention to detail is impressive, as is the professional competence of the workforce. I would not hesitate to recommend. "
Catherine Comerford - The Stage Newspaper, London SE1
"It’s great to deal with a local company who come highly recommended, who are supplying the No. 1 worldwide brand (copiers) with Canon, and where the after sales support has been excellent thus far, long may it continue."
Marc Mathew - Lifestyle Europe, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
"The phones are working and they are brilliant. You have selected exactly the right phone system for Suzanne Howe Communications. You have been friendly and professional throughout and the two engineers couldn't have been nicer. We have all been very impressed."
Suzanne Howe - Suzanne Howe Communications, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
"My experience of dealing with First Office has been fantastic. From my initial meeting with Paul I expected them to be extremely professional and reliable, and that is precisely what they're like."
Maria Quevedo - Artis Education, London
"First Office easily convinced us that the company could provide a (telephone) system exactly for our needs and did so in a professional and comprehensive manner which again only confirmed First Office as our preferred choice. As ATG had wanted First to supply and install our replacement telephone system from the off, the final deciding factor had simply boiled down to cost with a competitor providing a cheaper quote (which of course cannot be ignored in business). First Office were able to meet (and even beat) the reduced cost which 'sealed the deal'. All aspects of the implementation were first class. From initial contact from yourself, through to installation with the various engineers and finally to on-site training provided by Linda Cobbold. At no point was there a weak link. The odd support query has also been efficiently and successfully dealt with. In all honesty, I can't think of anything that ATG have been unhappy with. "
Ross Aveling - Albatross Travel Group, Maidstone, Kent
"Lifesure Group appointed First Office Systems to relocate our business together with the interior design, occupancy space plan and fit out of our new office building. The project included construction of all internal offices, the provision of power, installation of voice and data cabling, fit out of our communications room together with provision of a sophisticated telecommunications system and all the office furniture. Compliance with Building Control regulations was also undertaken on our behalf. First Office Systems provided professional project management with attention to detail ensuring our new building was completed on time and to a very high standard. We found all the staff to be very courteous and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending First Office Systems, indeed I have already done so."

"First Office have worked with our Company for 15 years and have always delivered great value. Having a single source of supply has enabled effective and regular communication and a clear interpretation of our requirements. John Donegan has managed our latest and biggest project, which included completely refurbishing two new wings of our office. The manner of his organisation is that he takes "ownership" of the execution of the project and personally gets involved in a hands-on way to make sure it is carried out as agreed in terms of quality, price and timing."
Barrie Etchells - Belmont International Ltd, Sevenoaks, Kent

Finally, providing all my telephone systems and hardware truly made First Office a one-stop shop for all our needs. Again thanks for a job well done."
Harmon International, Sevenoaks, Kent

We were particularly appreciative of your actions in organising the re-routing of calls within minutes during our recent power failure. Please keep doing what you do in the way that you do it!"
