Raspberry Beret Group

Raspberry Beret are a telecom, data, cloud security and IT provider based in the Northwest of England. Our client base ranges from small SME’s to large UK FTSE listed companies.

What sets us apart from the rest is that we are morally guided throughout our interactions with clients, and we stay true to our catchphrase ‘Simply, Honest Advice’. There are many telecom’s & IT companies out there who promise the world and simply do not deliver.

We are different, genuinely. It has always seemed illogical to me that companies spend so much time and effort in gaining new customers, to just provide poor service and move on to their ‘next meal’, the likelihood being that the customers will leave at their earliest opportunity.

Raspberry was born on the philosophy of having its key focus on the post sales customer experience. This has been proven to be a success as we very rarely lose customers, our retention rate (excluding companies who go into liquidation) is 98%. We currently provide Trafford Leisure all their Telecom’s (mobile & landline & call/contact centre) as well as the MPLS data network linking all the sites as well as their corporate Wi-Fi.
