With prices starting at £39 per month it claims to be 50 percent cheaper than BT’s equivalent service.
Phil Haslam, operations director at TalkTalk Business, explained why the company needed to improve its relationship with customers: “CloudSense is enabling us to add new modules, giving our teams the tools to sell more effectively.

TalkTalk’s sales processes needed streamlining and its admin was time-intensive said Richard Britton, CloudSense CEO.

CloudSense is a Salesforce platinum partner.
TalkTalk recently drafted ex-Facebook executive Joanna Shields to its board to advise on its growth strategy.
