January 2021 Update
Hello and a big Happy New Year to everyone. The team at TripleTapTech all hope that 2021 is a kind year to you. Unfortunately, due to the new Covid 19 Lockdown Restrictions we are still unable to provide face to face services such as one to one training and tech try outs from our office. This is something that we as a team a greatly missing. However, we are continuing to provide our remote services through phone calls and digital media.
