Oasis Community Learning have been working with Vietec for many years on data cabling projects throughout our organization which consists of 52 academies, primary and secondary.

Having a successful and positive relationship with a contractor is essential to ensure the smooth running of projects and we have found Vietec to be outstanding in the provision of their services. Having a dedicated account manager ensures smooth and trouble-free communications.

Vietec have delivered data cabling and audio visual installations in many of our academies and the quality of materials and knowledge of engineers is of a high standard. More recently, during the pandemic, Vietec have supported Oasis Community Learning in the delivery of our Horizons Project by upgrading data cabling, adding new cabling to our existing academies to support additional wireless capacity. These were particularly challenging times and Vietec have gone above and beyond to support this project which delivered 35,000 ipads into the hands of our students, ensuring the infrastructure was in place to increase wireless capacity across our academies. Often working at weekends, late into the night to ensure the works were completed in time to allow our students to return to school with a fully functioning network. Their engineers on the ground are highly experienced and are extremely helpful and supportive.

I would highly recommend Vietec services.
