Western Talk launches into Orbiss


Truro-based telecommunications specialist, Western Talk, has rebranded and re-launched its services under the new name of Orbiss.

Originally launched in 2006, the company has built up a strong client base across the UK by supplying, installing and maintaining fully integrated telephone systems for leisure, hotel and business customers.

Growing its business substantially over the past five years, directors Karen Patterson and Karen McGowan have developed a new system called ‘Clarity’ that provides their hotel customers with cutting edge guest room technology.


The rebranding comes as the business enters the next phase of growth and development and at a time when innovative telecommunications and entertainment systems are of growing importance to businesses and hotels.

With more than 25 years’ experience in the industry, Karen Patterson feels that the rebranding will help the company take their business to the next level.

She said: “There has been a lot of change in our industry over the years and I am proud to say that Western Talk has played a major role in advancing the solutions provided to businesses.

“Now is the time to take things on another step and move forward with a vibrant, exciting and dynamic brand that appeals to our local, national and international customers alike.

“The name Orbiss comes from the Latin word Orbis meaning orb or circle, an image which we believe represents the complete solution we provide to our customers’ needs.”

Orbiss offer a range of services; telecoms packages include phone systems, line rental, call packages for hospitality and commercial business as well as ongoing support and service. Orbiss also supplies and develops hotel entertainment systems.

A new website will be launched in the spring and will include details of all of the services and products available.

The new brand name and designs were created by Jo Downie of We Do So Design & Marketing and Alistair Brown at Studio AB.
