During BAPCO 2007, Hannes Bardach, Managing Director and Owner of Frequentis and Mark Plato, CEO of telent communications Limited signed an agreement to further develop their working relationship.
In a move to focus on offering highly specialised solutions for safety critical applications Frequentis and telent have decided to co-operate more closely by setting the basis of joint business development starting with the UK.
The two companies already work together on a number of projects, and the alliance will form the basis of a win-win co-operation for both companies and their customers.
Commenting on the signing, John Gurney, Managing Director, Frequentis UK said, "Together with telent we can now focus on offering highly specialised solutions for safety critical applications."
Gurney also pointed out, "Frequentis has a customer presence in over 50 countries world-wide, Telent is presently focused in the UK, and Germany. These latter two countries are strong areas of focus for both companies. However, the Alliance is initially focused in the UK, but it is flexible enough to enable expansion into Germany and other markets where each others skill sets could be required in the future."
Discussing the importance of the alliance with The BAPCO Journal, he added, "The Alliance is extremely important to Frequentis as the business expands further. Particularly within UK Public Safety which traditionally calls for Fully Managed Services, which telent provide. The benefit of a tighter relationship means a synergy of skill sets that when joined together, provide an unbeatable formula for our customers."
Frequentis is keen that its reputation for delivering On Time and In Budget is complimented by also delivering a strong Managed Service capability. The first telent collaboration was for the Metropolitan Police Project for which Frequentis as the Prime Contractor received the first commendation ever to presented to one of its suppliers by the Metropolitan Police Service Director of Information Ailsa Beaton.
The UK Market which is the second largest market for Frequentis world-wide, is particularly important as they have a very large installed Customer base. In fact presently it is the only country in which customers are serviced across all its six business sectors. The alliance allows the two companies to build on its already strong relationship in a more focussed and proactive way.
Mark Plato, CEO of telent added, "Frequentis has established itself as the leading provider of solutions of Command and Control Centres and we are very pleased to be partnering with an organisation of this calibre."
Continuing he concluded, "Frequentis expertise, combined with our own extensive experience of supporting mission critical communications services, means that together we will be able to offer an unrivalled service to companies in the emergency services sector and beyond."
