Can I just say a big thank you to Gareth for the work he undertook at this week and the assistance he gave to our engineer Antony. Antony had nothing but good words to say about Gareth, his professionalism, work ethic and ability to train on the job. Antony feels the install was a great success and is now much more confident in managing this solution for the school going forward.


Phil Jones
ICT Engineering Manager, Babcock4S


Gareth did a fantastic job. We were both very impressed with what he did which has got us where we need to be with our iPads.

Head, Southborough Primary School


I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.

Just a quick note to say thank you to Alex, who helped me this afternoon with expired tokens. He was super helpful. Great service from Toucan, as usual.

Toucan is a great Mac company that we have been using since it started more than 20 years ago. Staff listen to your needs, treat you intelligently and provide great service. They're always prepared to go that extra mile. And, better still, they do it with a genuine smile.
