Antiference heads into 5th year of sponsorship of the RDI

The RDI are really excited to announce the 5th year sponsorship by Antiference, who was one of the first sponsors of the RDI and over the years has formed a strong relationship with the team. The RDI has been a great platform for Antiference to communicate to the trade and be able to talk about their products and solutions. The network of members are already avid users of Antiference products but the partnership has further created new customers and expanded the products that members are using from the Antiference portfolio.Rubbing shoulders at many tradeshows it is good to see the increasing range of products on offer from Antiference as technology creates new innovations. Their new range of modulators demonstrates this which are popular within the membership network. 2017 will bring further products from Antiference and the RDI are looking forward to being able to share the details. Steve Hutchings from Kent Aerials in a recent case study shared his experience of using Antiference products for some 30 years. He had recently visited a job where there Antiference products were still working some 30 years on. He has always been impressed in the quality and price and is still a keen user.Entering into the 5th year of sponsorship, Beverley, Director of the RDI said 'I have worked with Trevor and his team throughout and I am still impressed by their energy and enthusiasm,' she added, 'to work with such a reputable company and team is really enjoyable and the feedback that we get from our members is great. They love their products and the support that they receive. I am thrilled to be working with them for another year.'Trevor MD of Antiference added 'As we enter our 80th year in business, Antiference are delighted to continue our relationship with the RDI into the 5th year. The proactive nature of the RDI makes them an ideal partner to help Antiference communicate with their members and network. It provides a great outlet to let people know about the new products and innovations from the Antiference team. We look forward to another 12 months of working alongside Bev & her team'Check out their Festive Prize Giveaway for 2016 hereFind Antiference on Twitter here

Avonline sponsors RDI for a fourth year

The RDI are delighted to announce that Avonline plc has chosen to partner with the RDI as a main sponsor for the 4th year running. This is strong testament to the close working relationship that has been established between the two companies and the investment made by both organisations to the member network.The relationship has evolved over the past 3 years primarily supporting Avonline Broadband, the market leader in the UK for satellite broadband. The RDI has been committed to ensuring members and consumers are aware of the latest satellite broadband developments including the latest Superfast 30Mb services offered by Avonline on a nationwide basis. RDI has raised awareness with members and provided the link for them to become resellers and representatives. As Avonline continues to offer a unique range of solutions across the UK, their success in the satellite broadband market is second to none and they actively engage with members to help them to drive forward. The partnership for the RDI will develop further into 2017 as the two organisations seek to extend this important relationship into new areas. As a Services group established back in 1981, as well as being leaders in satellite broadband they are specialists in networks, providing solutions in fibre and copper to next generation networks and commercial flooring, providing services to building contractors and developers. Part of their recent development has been supporting BskyB with the upgrade of communal housing blocks to make them Sky Q ready. The RDI and Avonline have developed a specific model for members to reward both a converted lead for communal blocks suitable for the Sky Q upgrade as well as the installation works. We are pleased to have been able to get our members involved in supporting this project and look forward to many more members getting involved as we race into 2017.Beverley Smith, Director at RDI shared 'Our relationship with Avonline has gone from strength to strength and we truly enjoy working with the senior management team there. We have always been impressed with their positive attitude, passion and professionalism and we are thrilled at the RDI to be working with Avonline for another year.' She added, 'Our aim over the next year is to jointly present more opportunities to our members and to continue to support Avonline in raising their profile.'Mark Wynn, MD of Avonline PLC added 'The RDI is an excellent partner for Avonline. They have a passionate and experienced leadership team and a proactive approach for finding innovative ways for both their members and Avonline to engage in a successful manner. With superfast satellite broadband and the technically superb Sky Q, 2017 should be our most successful partnership year ever."

Antiference Case Study

Supported by Steve Hutchings from Kent AerialsAntiference are a well-established leader in the manufacture in the TV reception and digital media industry. They have been manufacturing for some 80 years, with as long ago in 1937 when the first television broadcasts happened, Antiference began manufacturing UHF and VHF antennas in the UK for the trade market.Since their original products, Antiference had expanded their product portfolio which has evolved to meet the needs of the market and technology. Highly renowned for making high quality products which range from domestic Sky accessories, 4K HD distribution and LCD wall mounts, just to name a few of their products. We hear a lot of our members talk about Antiference products, referring to their quality, customer service and also just how long they had been using Antiference products. We found one of our longest standing members who has used Antiference products for some 30+ years. Speaking to Steve Hutchings from Kent Aerials who operates in the East Kent area, he couldn't praise the products enough. On chatting to Steve he said that in his early career the company he had worked for tried several manufacturers but kept coming back to the products supplied by Antiference as they simply found them to the best. He recalls that the first product he used was the XG 10 Aerial and 3 way Masthead splitter. This first use of Antiference products has led to his commitment to the use of their range of products including a high volume of aerial products with the XG 10 Aerial still remaining his firm favourite. Steve said 'What is really important to me is ensuring when I complete a job is the quality and reliability of the products that I use and I get this every time with Antiference products. In addition I need to remain competitive and with the Antiference products being reasonably priced, I am able to do this.' He added, 'In addition they have a wide range of products which helps with the range or work that I do and the evolving need of consumers.'Although he rarely needed to access Antiference's technical support team on the rare occasion when he found them to be first class and would recommend using them if you are stuck. Steve shared a story to sum up the quality of Antiference products, 'I have recently taken down a 30 year old Antiference 2 way masthead splitter a part of a system upgrade. The kit was still working and completely intact after 30 years. This really supports my thoughts that they deliver quality and reliable products at a reasonable price. I have just sent the kit back to Antiference who were keen to see the product after 30 years.'The experience by Steve is supported by many of our members who mirror his comments and support for Antiference products. The RDI have worked with Antiference now for 4 years and consistently find their team to be engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about their products. This comes at a time when Antiference are just entering their 5th year of sponsorship and our members will hear more and more about new products and the quality work that Antiference do.Visit the Antiference website here
