No surprise, here at 2-Way Communications we are big fans of using 2-way radios. It doesn’t matter what workplace – education, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, retail, transportation, utilities. Two-way radios are regularly chosen as the communication tool of choice by management and the front-line user. How come an almost 80-year-old technology is still a very valid tool for the workplace? Here are a few of the reasons why:
Privacy via a closed network – sharing isn’t always the right thing to do.
One-to-Many Communication – a time saver, speaking to all your crew at once.
Excellent reception and wide area coverage – no need to wait for an optimal signal. Touch a button and you’re in communication.
Effectiveness in ultra-noisy environments – The call always gets though, finding a quiet spot is no longer necessary.
Availability of safety features – like Teldio’s Centralized Lone Worker, Man Down Notifier, and Alarm Control System.
Ruggedly built for industrial environments – have you seen someone drop a cell phone or laptop recently?
We’ve all seen new technology become obsolete as better, newer things become available. Two-way radios, though, have been continually developed and enhanced to meet the needs of a variety of users. If you’re facing the 2-way radio / cell phone decision for your organization, give us a call. Once we understand your workplace communications needs, we can work with you on making an informed decision about purchasing or upgrading your two way radios, if that’s the best choice for you.
