Motorola commercial radios in Wilmington are a good idea for any industry. Although cell phones are familiar tools for communication, they don’t offer the durability, reception range, and safety features that workers rely on. Commercial two-way radios help businesses stay better connected in real-time, which results in improved safety, greater efficiency, and increased productivity.
Here are 15 reasons you should be thinking about investing in commercial two-way radios for your communications solutions.
1. Instant Communication
Push-to-talk (PTT) technology allows you to communicate instantly with your team with just the push of a button. When you are in the field, being able to convey critical information in real-time can not only save time and money but in an emergency situation it can mean the difference between life and death.
2. No Dead Zones or Dropped Calls
Since cell phones rely on towers for coverage, cellular voice or texting can be slow at critical times if the network is overloaded. Wilmington commercial two-way radios operate on radio frequencies (UHF vs. VHF) for more reliable operation within the coverage area.
3. Multiple Shift Battery Life
While most batteries are reliable for 10 to 12 hour shifts, the new IMPRES battery technology helps two-way radio communications last longer. IMPRESS software collects critical data, such as battery charge, age, and capacity, in order to help workers to better manage their equipment. With extended battery life – up to 28 hours – your radios will last through multiple shifts before they need to be charged.
4. Better Return On Investment
Two-way radios are much more cost-effective than cell phones, and while cell phones need to be replaced frequently, the average radio lasts a user for about 5 years. Having the right tool for the job also helps workers perform more efficiently, effectively and safely.
5. Durable Design
Known for ruggedness and durability, Wilmington Motorola commercial radios can withstand a rough environment, survive the elements, and get knocked around a few times. Meant to aid the everyday worker, they are built tough and all come with an IP Rating that helps you find the best radio for your specific needs. Some are even IP68 waterproof, handling full water submersion and keep going.
6. Interoperability with All Devices
WAVE Work Group Communications offers interoperability and broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solutions that deliver real-time voice and data securely using any device. At Wireless Inc., our dealers will help you discover which digital two-way radios, cell phones, laptops, and tablets can connect to your new or existing networks.
7. USDOT Compliant for Drivers
The Department of Transportation regulations banning the use of cell phones for commercial drivers doesn’t apply to mobile radios. For example, the Motorola XPR5550e two-way radios are equipped with Bluetooth capability for hands-free communication, so drivers can talk without fear of legal ramifications.
8. Only Work-Related Apps
Wilmington Motorola commercial radios have only the apps installed that you need to get the job done – freeing your workforce to focus on work-related matters. Some of these applications include: · Lone worker for employee safety at remote worksites · Man Down for automatic emergency alerts due to radio inactivity · Panic buttons for emergency assistance at the touch of a button
9. Better Network Security
Motorola commercial radio systems operate via a closed network providing better security. With MotoTRBO privacy features, simple scrambling, encryption keys, and enhanced algorithms offer protection, safety, and security.
10. One-Touch Calling
Some two-way mobile and portable two-way radio models have emergency help at the push of a button. Rather than calling dispatch, alerts can be sent instantly, so that emergency procedures can be put into action even faster.
11. One-to-Many Communications
Cell phones are limited to one-to-one communications, or at best one-to-three if you take the time to dial in a conference call. Radio PTT technology lets you communicate one-to-one, one-to-group, or one-to-everyone at the push of a button, making it even easier to keep everyone up to date.
12. Work Group Channels
If you have a business, like a hotel, that employs many different staff in several different departments, the housekeeping staff don’t always need to get the same messages as the restaurant staff. You can set specific workgroup channels to communicate with different groups of workers.
In case of emergencies, group communication can keep everyone together and on the same page. When every second matters, relaying information to multiple team members at once can save valuable time during critical situations,
13. GPS Location Tracking for Personnel & Assets
For managers that want to keep track of their fleet, GPS and indoor location tracking offer the ability to see where your two-way radios and workers are at all times. It’s a useful feature for allocating resources, managing productivity levels and keeping your workforce safe.
14. Noise-Cancelling Audio
Enhanced audio features like noise-canceling technology and volume that adjusts automatically based on the environmental noise level help to deliver crystal clear audio even on the loudest job sites.
15. Integrated Safety Features
Keeping workers safe is one of the primary functions of Motorola commercial radios in Wilmington, Delaware, so it’s no surprise that they excel in safety features. Some of the features available include:
Emergency buttons for one-touch alerts
Automatic volume adjustment based on background noise
Transmit interrupt to clear a channel for mission-critical communication
Bluetooth audio for hands-free communication
HazLoc intrinsically safe radios and accessories for working around combustible materials
