It has been a pleasure working with the Oblong team, they are creative, enthusiastic and diligent. They are able to take our ideas and work with us to make it into a reality, their ability to communicate in a way that even our most non-technical people can understand what they are talking about has been a huge bonus for us.

Johal Regan and Empress Care
Johal Regan originally instructed Oblong Tech in 2007 to offer remote and onsite technical support to our Wanstead office. They then went on to build our company website which following completion has proved to be a valuable tool for increasing business, the site has also received several compliments from our clients and associates.
Over the last four years Johal Regan has grown as a company, meaning that our office systems have required expansion and upgrade. Oblong Tech coordinated this process and worked tirelessly to ensure that the changeover of our computer systems went as smoothly as possible, without any issues.
Oblong Tech are currently building a website for our care home company Empress Care Ltd. They have proved a brilliant understanding of the direction that we want to take with our brand and have translated our brief into a functional and aesthetically pleasing website. It's soon to go live and we eagerly await the results.
Director of Johal Regan and Empress Care, Deep Johal has said;
"I have had the pleasure of having Oblongtech as my IT support company for over 2 years for various companies based in my office. They have always proved themselves to be creative, conscientious and efficient with our 10 computers at the office and 2 computers at home.
I am a complete technophobe but they have, with patience and skill, taken a stressful part of my life away and actually taught me how to use technology to my advantage.
In terms of IT, I would confidently recommend Oblongtech as a rising star in the industry. I hope I never have to look for another IT company ever again."
Throughout the four years that Oblong Tech have been working with Johal Regan, they have always offered us a speedy and reliable service and dealt with any issues that we have had efficiently. Their personable and reliable team members are now considered by our directors to be 'part of the family'. Johal Regan would never consider moving to a different IT company and we are hoping to get Oblong Tech involved with many future projects.
Deep and Harps Johal, Directors
I have worked with Oblong Tech for over 10 years through three different roles, including the creation of my own business. Their understanding and knowledge of every brief given has always been to a high standard, evenly match with their excellent project delivery. We think of Oblong as an extension of our own business. An excellent company and a great team!
