Town Benefit Directly From Extension Date: 26/08/2013

Direct Voice & Data will continue as Huddersfield Town’s Official Telecoms and Audio Visual Provider throughout the 2013/14 season after signing a partnership extension during August.

As part of the relationship, Direct Voice & Data and the Club are working together to implement a new text messaging system that will further improve Huddersfield Town’s communications strategy, with an emphasis on the corporate audience in the first instance.

During the initial 12 months of the partnership, Direct Voice & Data installed state-of-the-art Ethernet First Mile (EFM) technology that is now used in the First Team’s post-match analysis process, sending high-quality video files to Prozone’s head office.

Direct Voice & Data has also installed the telephone system used in the new offices at the Club’s Canalside training complex.

Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Manager Ajin Abraham is pictured with Direct Voice & Data’s Dave Henderson at their offices in Skelmanthorpe, Huddersfield after agreeing the extension.

Ajin explained:

“We are pleased to see Direct Voice & Data renew their partnership with the Club.

“Our relationship has grown over the last 12 months and it is great to see Direct Voice & Data continue to invest in the Club and help us in our telecom requirements. The new telephony system and the EFM network are a step in the right direction as far as technology is concerned at the Club.

“Now we’re excited about the new text messaging system that is in the pipeline. We look forward to continue growing our partnership with Dave and his team.”

Dave Henderson, Managing Director of Direct Voice & Data added:

“We are delighted to be continuing our working relationship with Huddersfield Town for the forthcoming season and are delighted to introduce our SMS Text Messaging services to the Club so that they can communicate with their valued contacts further.

“We are confident that our continued telecoms support and expertise will benefit the team’s communications strategy for the future.

“We wish the team luck for the season and look forward to more excitement on the pitch.”
