Offshore Project Lands National Award for DF Communications


DF Communications, a leading business communications specialist, has been named a winner at a national awards ceremony in London.

The Aberdeen-based business scooped the Best Enterprise Unified Communications Solution at the 2017 Comms National Awards at the Hilton Park Lane. DF Communications was also highly commended in another category, Best Enterprise Cloud Solution. Both award entries focused on project work completed for North Star Shipping – part of The Craig Group – which reduced costs and improved communications for the client.

In total, DF Communications connected 136 hosted IP phones on 31 vessels in North Star Shipping's fleet, which supports up to 48 offshore installations in the North West European Area (NWEA). DF Communications, which delivers mobile phone and landline products and services, collected its award at the event which was hosted by actor James Nesbitt OBE.

Craig Forsyth, sales director at DF Communications, said: “We're thrilled to win this national award. It recognises the importance of building trusted relationships – we've been working with The Craig Group for 20 years. In addition, the win highlights the level of expertise within the business to deliver projects that require our experience and collaborative.”

DF Communications created a hosted solution that could seamlessly connect to three different networks – Vessel 4G, offshore installation 4G and V-SAT (satellite communications). The technology provides the client with the option of installing any number of users depending on the requirements of each vessel. The Comms National Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the ICT (integrated communications technology) sector.

A past winner of a Northern Star Award for customer service, DF also provides wi-fi solutions, hands-free car solutions and vehicle tracking to local, national and international businesses. In addition, its in-house agency, DF Creative, offers a range of design, digital and multimedia services including branding and graphic design, fully responsive web design, brochures, drone photography and video.
