About us - Noakes

What we do?

We put the power back into communications by finding new ways for people to interact. We do this by developing our own ideas in-house and by helping other companies develop their IT and computer telephony products via our world-class consultancy division. Large or small, simple or complex it’s all the same to us here at Noakes.


Why we do it?

Noakes is about innovation, we aim to simplify and demystify telephony and internet based communications. At Noakes we have a simple business principle: to use our skills and knowledge to invent and develop new ways for people to communicate. We believe that there are many ways to improve the everyday experiences of anyone who currently uses communications technology; from teenagers to senior citizens and the smallest business to the largest corporation.

Our goal to improve the communication experience stretches beyond Noakes’ own product developments, we are just as passionate in helping other businesses achieve their goals in the IT and computer telephony fields via our world-class consultancy services.

How do we manage it?

At Noakes we have over thirty five years’ experience in the telecommunications and IT sectors. We have accumulated extensive industry and government credentials obtained through a wide range of technical, sales and leadership posts.

This combination of technical expertise coupled with wide ranging business skills gives Noakes a unique perspective on the world of communications, allowing us to offer both first-class consultancy and ground-breaking product lines. Our IT and CTI skills base is extremely broad, please see our skills page for an indicative but not exhaustive sample of some of our capabilities..
