Award winning facilities management company selects Radiocoms to deploy and support new
IP linked radio communication system at prestigious designer outlet.
Over the years this leading lifestyle and retail destination has gained a reputation for innovation and forward thinking with their processes and technologies they select. Utilising the lockdown as a period of review, they accelerated their plans to find ways to keep teams safe in their ‘new normal’. The incumbent radio system had degraded over time and was becoming unreliable, disrupting team efficiency, internal communications and ultimately safety. After various discussions it was requested by both the facilities management company and centre management that a new radio communications system would be beneficial for all users.
After approaching Radiocoms for an initial discovery meeting, Radiocoms were tasked to design and deploy a new radio system in time for the retail sector re-opening after the third lockdown in England on 12th April 2021. The solution needed the ability to upscale and have the flexibility to support their needs as they grew.
Extensive site testing was carried out across the outlet to ensure all requirements were met following which Radiocoms developed a tailored solution and service for the client based on MOTOTRBO IP Site Connect. The selected technology is a proven and favoured solution within the retail industry – offering wide area coverage, and seamless roaming from one area to another without the need for manual intervention.
