The success of the FPRSA-Replacement delivered by Frequentis Comsoft and voice communications delivered by Frequentis AG formed the foundation of the award.
At its Supplier Day, at the end of 2018, UK air traffic management provider NATS awarded the Frequentis Group its prestigious annual award in the category of Collaborative Supplier of the Year 2018. The selection was based on the close working relationship enabling successful project deliveries under challenging conditions.
Both Frequentis Comsoft and Frequentis AG have a long history of working with NATS across a widerange of projects, spanning more than 20 years. The strong working relationship has formed the foundation for successful collaboration on recent projects with demanding timeframes and deliverables.
“Long term collaborative relationships are core to NATS strategy and our partners are selected based on their established performance and capability, coupled with strong collaborative behaviours. This award recognises the value we place on our relationship with Frequentis and the commitment that the Frequentis Group has demonstrated in the face of challenging project objectives ensuring that our needs were successfully met.” said Tim Bullock, NATS Director Supply Chain
Most recently NATS has been working with Frequentis Comsoft to replace its current Flight Plan Reception Suite Automation (FPRSA) system, which was approaching the end of its operational life, while Frequentis AG continues to support its Voice Communication System VCS 3020 for the London FIR at NATS LACC in Swanwick, Hampshire.
“Frequentis Comsoft understood the importance of the FPRSA project for NATS and the foundation for its success was the trust, openness and transparency offered by both teams, enabling a close and successful collaboration, despite their distance, working together effectively as one team, day and night. Additionally, Frequentis AG has provided support to NATS on the LACC Voice Communications System since 1995. Frequentis is driven by its values around strong engineering capability, reliable equipment and customer-focused behaviour. It is an honour to be recognised for our ongoing support and commitment to these projects.”, says Norbert Haslacher, CEO Frequentis AG.
