The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted every market sector, teams downed tools, left sites or turned to a new way of working. As organisations look to adapt and return to a new workplace, a clearer vision of how your teams are connected and communicate has never been more relevant.
Government guidelines are driving forward plans to ensure you are protected in this new normal, but the margin for error in regard to operational procedures is wide open. While on-site teams are still likely to be your primary two-way radio users, now is the time to consider how the technology you are utilising can support a safer working environment, assist you in meeting key performance indicators and provide system access to the broader workforce.
With the most recent TRBOnet’ s software* releases there aren’t substantial cost implications or significant changes in the way the software operates, simply enhancements that can provide you with an opportunity to look ahead at how your radio communications system(s) can operate in the future.
To help organisations process a large number of incoming radio transmissions with minimal support controllers due to current guidelines, the new Request-To-Talk (RTT) feature allows for a call back facility. Particularly useful for verticals such as bus companies, trains, local government, and utility companies. The control dispatcher is notified and can choose to ignore it, return the call, or place it in a queue to address later.
To support the integration between two-way radio systems and smartphones, TRBOnet PTT Over Cellular (PTT Mobile Client) now offers full support for Android 10. Looking at the new capabilities, they have included new safety features including man down detection, shake and detection.
The ability to share information across multiple technologies can offer significant cost savings. TRBO.SOS turns your Android or iOS smartphone into a personal safety device. The software has a clean and straightforward UI with large programmable buttons and is designed to route the SOS notification to your TRBOnet dispatcher instantly. Along with a distress signal, TRBO.SOS sends information to TRBOnet about your location.
This pandemic has highlighted the need for change and now is the time to re-define and streamline. Where there are interdepartmental, or organisation-wide discussions in terms of cost savings and considerations for the limitation of multiple communication platforms, TRBOnet can offer a solution to bring everyone and everything together.
If you are ready to take the next step in making significant cost savings, increasing resiliency, and supporting team safety, then partner with Radiocoms who can help you create a roadmap and achieve your goals. Let’s work together.
