How Prodec helps Falck Fire Services UK

Falck is all about people helping people and relies on the very best technologies to ensure its employees are always available and ready to help people in need.

In order to react immediately to a reported incident, Falck Fire Services UK operates in a state of permanent readiness and therefore requires a robust, simple to use communication platform that will ensure constant availability, 24/7/365, without fail.  

 Falck Fire Services UK required expert assistance with the design and installation of a sophisticated Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) and call recording solution for its new operations centre at Wilton Teesside. Because of the nature of its business, Falk needed a high-performing, reliable solution which would provide the functionality they required and the ability to scale with ease.

PowerDial, a specialised division of Prodec Networks, worked in close collaboration with world-leading communication experts Avaya to deliver the ideal solution and meet Falck's high demands. Avaya's Communications Manager solution is industry-leading and used by 60% of the UK's emergency services, making it an ideal choice. It provides two-way communication to response vehicles and with no single point of failure, it is specifically designed to be always available.

As part of the systems failsafe design, critical components were duplicated to prevent any single problem causing a system failure and ensure maximum reliability and uptime. This has resulted in zero breaches in PowerDial's Service Level Agreement and a lasting, stable relationship between client and provider. 

Client Feedback

"We have the same degree of responsibility across the Wilton site as any other emergency service would have, which means that absolute reliability and robustness is essential for the technologies we use to manage any emergency alarm calls that come in.

The service standards we set correspond with the high expectations of our customers, and from the outset of this project, PowerDial's technical knowledge and service quality more than lived up to the testing criteria that we set.

PowerDial designed and implemented the project very professionally, providing real insight into how we might deliver our services with maximum efficiency, and showed a real empathy with our business needs. It's been a true joy working with them and I can highly recommend choosing them for any kind of communications project.”
