  • Pace Plc are a world leader in technologies, products and services for the broadcast and broadband industries and originally established a relationship with us in 2003 owing to their awareness of Intouch Advance locally.

  • It started with the provision of their fixed line estate at their Salts Mill Global Head Office, 500 yards from our Head Office in Saltaire.

  • This has extended to home worker broadband and mobile phone contracts for over 300 of their employees.

  • We ensure that we are providing a superior service for Pace by conducting monthly audits. These are important to the business as they highlight cost savings and appropriate tariff changes.

  • For their international travellers, we keep a close eye on their call and roaming activities so that their expenditure is kept to a minimum.
