    For its customers' techs, which might spend days at a time troubleshooting issues, it has set up hot desks they can use to work from, in addition to house phones and wireless facilities that reach throughout the centre.

    Tired techs also have the ability to shower at the facility or get a cup of coffee in its lounge.

    Finally, when all else fails and techs simply need a break, there are also two pinball machines and a retro-style video game machine.
