Lister and FGR working together to make matchdays safe
By Matt Hall | 18th December 2020
Lister Unified Communications has extended its partnership with Forest Green Rovers to provide the club with a range of communications solutions.
Experts in unified communications solutions, the Stonehouse-based firm has worked with the club for the last seven years and help FGR operate safely and securely.
Lister provides the club with Ofcom fully-licensed radios to its security, catering and first-team staff on matchdays - as well as supporting them with text messaging for ticketing and communications with its supporters.
Behind-closed-doors matches have provided their own challenges to ensure the safety of the first-team players, media and staff - and the importance of communication between staff members has been more important than ever.
Mark Smith, stadium manager at Forest Green Rovers said: "The team at Lister Unified Communications have been a massive help to our efforts to ensure safety at the innocent New Lawn.
"Having full-licensed radios is extremely important - and helps our security team on a matchday operate professionally and efficiently. The radios are heavy duty, reliable and give us peace of mind that matchdays can be ran smoothly and effectively."
Simon Gardner of Lister Unified Communications, added: "It's great to see Forest Green play knowing Listers are helping make it a safe environment for all and making communications for the whole FGR team easy and secure.
"In this world of mobile devices, licensed radios can be missed as the ideal way to communicate instantly, securely to large groups."
