Many businesses don’t recognise the benefits of unifying all your telecommunication tools to streamline your internal and external communications.
One Taree-based business, Johnson & Mongan Chartered Accountants (JMCA) reached out to our team about becoming their telephone service provider, and they’ve never looked back.
Johnson & Mongan Chartered Accountants (JMCA) is an accounting and taxation company located in Taree, NSW. The team has been working with businesses in the Manning Valley to provide accounting assistance and quality services for over 50 years.
The team were using Samsung phones for all of their internal and external communications, but were facing difficulties with their existing telephone provider and Samsung.
“We were advised by Samsung that no further support would be provided, and our current telephone provider advised they too could not service the phones any longer,” said Janine Kennewell, Johnson & Mongan’s Executive Assistant.
“We wanted to move to a new online system to provide more flexibility for employees who needed to work from home, especially as COVID-19 became more prevalent.”
Searching for a new telephone service provider wasn’t going to be easy for JMCA. The team were looking for a company who was local, reputable and easy to work with.
After a long-winded online search, Janine turned to another local accounting company in Taree for advice.
“I had conversations with another local accounting firm who were using Strategic Group for computer tech support,”
Janine reached out for an online quote from us a few months before beginning to work with our team. We remained in contact with Janine, offering assistance and checking in on her progress to see if she’d found an alternative telephone service provider.
“Strategic Group kept in touch with me to see if we were ready to change telephone service providers and ultimately their professionalism stood out,” - Janine.
Since beginning working with our team, Janine said the team at JMCA has been blown away by the differences to their original telephone service provider.
“The benefits have been great. We are now able to set up a voicemail quite easily for busy times, like at the end of the financial year and for functions,” said Janine.
“We also find the system great and easy to use when we’re working from home. It makes no difference to our output and clients wouldn’t notice the difference!”

After researching numerous telephone service providers, JMCA decided our team’s all-in-one telecommunications solution was the best choice for their business.
“I researched quite a few companies and found Strategic Group to be not only economical but also very easy to deal with,” said Janine.
“Their team always provides quick responses. Our telephone providers were quite inadequate when it came to customer service.”
