Telecommunications, IT and energy provider, Invictus Communications, has won the contract to provide a bespoke mobile communications solution for investment promotion agency Marketing Derby.

The Marketing Derby team, which has recently moved to new premises at Cubo Derby in the Cathedral Quarter, needed a cost effective and reliable mobile communications system to suit the team’s hybrid working patterns.

Melbourne-based Invictus Communications have provided the team with new devices complete with mobile apps which enable them to make calls free of charge and take calls into the office regardless of their location.

Dr John Forkin MBE DL is managing director of Marketing Derby which has recently been recognised with The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

He said: “Our role as the investment promotion agency for Derby and Derbyshire means that our team are out and about a great deal. As with many other businesses, we have also embraced the opportunities and benefits of hybrid working.
“We therefore needed a mobile communications solution that supported our agile working patterns and obviously turned to the Marketing Derby Bondholder community to find the solution.

“Invictus Communications proposed a reliable, affordable and flexible mobile communications system which is ideal for our team.”

Invictus Communications managing director Jonny McPhee added: “We have worked with more than 70 fellow Marketing Derby Bondholders to deliver bespoke communications systems to help them grow their businesses.

“We are therefore delighted that Marketing Derby itself chose us for this task and it has been a pleasure working with the dynamic team there to develop this mobile communications system to suit their needs.”
