"Hi Simon Thank you for your help and assistance with the iPhone4 queries, you have achieved in 5 minutes what Vodafone have taken over 2 hours to not resolve! I have discussed with them just now about Outlook needing to be closed to get emails on the iPhone and they have advised altering the Outlook settings to 'keep the mail on the server' which I have done and it appears to be working OK but goodness knows what else it will put out of sync! 19-5-11"
"I rely on ToucanWeb for my internet services because they're a small-client focused company and respond immediately. Recently we lost our email due to problems experienced by a third-party provider. ToucanWeb responded straightaway, sourced the problem, and fixed it within the hour. Fantastic!"
"We were delighted to be commissioned by North Weald Parish Council to develop their website into something that would help the PC engage with the community and be a conduit for information flow in both directions. Having provided the council Internet services for a number of years prior, the council knew Toucan and were impressed with level they had received. The website had a tight budget and after, a review of available options, it was decided to produce it on a Wordpress platform giving affordability and flexibility. After the final training the council are editing the whole site themselves including the calendars, images, text and pages. "
"We are on our third web build with Toucan. Having tried other website developers, we come back to Simon and his team because they offer a hands on straight talking service which is cost effective, friendly and super efficient. Our Studio Mannequins site was created at the launch of the business and we are very happy with the continued sales growth, which can most certainly be mainly attributed to the website, since we have no showroom or advertising aspect to the business. The aftersales service is superb; we subscribe to a quarterly SEO and marketing review and Simon has encouraged us to review our Google statistics regularly. The turnover continues to grow and we very recently had our best monthly ever for web visits."
I must start by saying, over the years I have being contacted many times by various Internet marketing companies and have always declined from using them, mainly due to the fact that I cannot begin to understand how the magic of internet 'Googling' works, and had it not been for a trusted friend introducing me to Toucan Internet I would still probably feel the same way.
I can totally understand why anyone running their own business would be suspicious of what they are actually getting for the money they spend.
However I can say that my small ten room hotel has had a massive increase in Internet enquiries over the last nine weeks. It is difficult to say by how much, but, as an example, prior to having Toucan Internet provide us the optimisation advice we would get an absolute maximum of 20 enquiries a week.
I now find myself replying to on average five or six enquiries per day. This doubling of quality enquiries may be a coincidence, but I feel it is very likely due to the better search engine friendliness of our website. The one thing to remember is that when using a company such as Toucan Internet, they will drive more potential customers to your web site, but it is then for you to conclude the business.
The facts in my case are as follows:-
1. Internet enquiries have doubled and are certainly still increasing.
2. Future hotel reservation levels from these web visitors is looking very healthy.
3. To get the best conversion from enquiry to booking you MUST follow up all enquiries asap
4. Don’t forget ...... if you don’t do your bit by replying you are wasting your money.
5. It is very unlikely I will ever advertise in any form of printed publication again.
6. I would now recommend this type of marketing to any business, but select a provider with a proven track record.
7. We chose a small dedicated professional team so we could build a good working relationship rather than putting this work in the hands of a bigger business.
I am now using Toucan Internet LLP on a permanent basis and have in nine weeks gained a data base of almost 300 email addresses to which we are now sending regular updates of our seasonal offers
Thank you Toucan..."

""We were suffering on average 500 Spam and junk emails a day and this was taking a good 50 minutes a day to manually clear them; time that could have been spent more profitably. As commercial stationers offering a next day service we need an efficient email system to communicate with suppliers and customers nationwide. After looking at various options, we chose Toucan Internet's Spam and Virus solution and as soon as this went live these unwanted messages dropped away to just a few a days. We have had no local network configuration issues either as Toucan do this on-line in their usual efficient and speedily fashion." "

"At Pearse House we are delighted that we chose Simon Thomas to redesign our website.
Not only has he produced a wonderful eye-catching, attractive and user friendly website, but throughout he has demonstrated a professionalism and a passionate love of his work.
He is extremely knowledgeable, thoroughly efficient and extremely patient (especially with client like us).
From the outset Simon gave freely of his time to gather information, ask appropriate questions and gain a full appreciation of our business before embarking on producing the ideal site for us.
Throughout the website construction he remained in constant contact with us and kept us up-to-date with changes and suggestions. As a perfectionist he wanted to ensure that our site was absolutely right for our business, and to this end he has succeeded with flying colours.
I can highly recommend Simon to you and whole heartedly attest that you will not find a website designer any better.
Simon and Toucan Internet are second to none!

"Zoom Answer Call is celebrating its first successful decade in business, over eight years as a client of Toucan Internet.
In 2002 Chella Hayes, CEO of Zoom decided to rebrand the company’s logo, website and stationery and chose Toucan Internet to assist in this project. The resulting distinctive branding is still in use today, epitomising the quality of business call handling from Zoom.
Chella says “Good internet communications are essential to our entire operation and in this respect Toucan Internet has excelled, repeatedly surpassing expectations. We value Toucan’s personal and rapid response to issues as they arise. They routinely debug email problems, invariably such problems being caused by third party or client’s networks, which nonetheless prevent Zoom providing its clients with the first class service they expect”
We wish Zoom Answer Call a successful second decade.

"Having a website properly created, run and promoted for you is an important part of business now. Having a company that can provide such a service in a totally reliable, professional and friendly (non-Klingon-speaking) way is even more important. Lucky me: I found that company in the form of Simon and his team at Toucan. If your web co. doesn't measure up, feel free to move to Toucan - I'll share!"
"I wanted to write and say a huge THANK YOU to you, for the web site which you designed and developed for Aralia Garden Design. Our web site has had some very positive comments from clients, they have found it easy to use, aesthetically very attractive, extremely informative, and has allowed us to promote Aralia as a professional, quality, personal & caring business, which is exactly the image that we wanted to portray to our clients - both existing and new. What I wanted to say is that - at times - it may have been a pain staking process for both of us, but the deliverables of what Toucan has provided us with, is exactly what we wanted - I can't say better than that! I am very pleased with the final finished web site, the project grew as we developed it, and although it might have come in a little over budget, I now look back and think it was definitely money well worth spending."
