At Wall to Wall Communications we know how important it is to you that your business runs smoothly, efficiently and at optimum levels of safety. Taking the step to implement two way radios has never been more logical with the latest technology allowing you to truly customise their features. This has meant that two way radios are able to enhance the running of several industries including; construction, events, security, education, hospitality leisure, auction houses, transportation logistics, retailers, film production, banks and hospitals to name a few. With multiple options available such as Trackitt UK and automated radio alarms, a two way radio can improve the running of your business in several different ways. If you would like to find out how your two way radio can be tailored to help you and your business, keep reading…

 

  • Noise Cancelling

One of the main concerns companies have about using two way radios is noise interference. This is a particular concern for industries such as events, festivals, family attractions and anywhere else there may be loud noises. However, two way radios can now feature noise cancelling abilities which allow voice messages to be sent and received clearly and without interruption. This allows for communication to continue despite the surrounding situation, and for safety and security to be maintained, even in potentially loud emergency situations.

  • Discrete communication

If your business is dealing with the public and requires discrete communication, Wall to Wall Communications can provide radios that are compatible with earpieces and audio adapters to ensure you and your colleagues can communicate privately.

  • Man down

The man down function is another quick and effective way of alerting other workers when there is a risk to the safety of the user. This specialised feature will send an alarm to the base station if the radio either remains stationary for too long, the holder is moving more than what is considered normal for the job or the radio user is positioned at an unusual angle for an extended period of time. 

  • Lone Worker

If your business involves employees working on their own, during your consultation you can request a ‘man down’ function. At regular intervals the radio will send an alert which prompts the lone worker to respond by pressing a button if they are safe and well. If the radio alert is not responded to, this will send an alarm to the base station. To learn more about man down and lone worker function, you can read our blog post here.

  • GPS Tracking- Trackitt UK

GPS tracking (Trackitt UK) is an additional feature that you can request for your two way radios from Wall to Wall. When using Trackitt UK your two way radios can have their location, speed and communication recorded. This is particularly useful if your business travels throughout the UK, for example a courier or taxi company.  Read our blog post What is Trackitt and How Can It Help Your Business for more information.

  • Manager Override Function

Basic radios are a great solution for businesses who need quick and easy communication between staff. However, if you have a large business with multiple radio users there may be a situation where important messages get lost amongst other communications. This is where the manager override function shines. At Wall to Wall we can set a hierarchy or radios that allows important messages to be delivered to all radio users. This can be used for day-to-day delegation and in emergency situations.

  • Integrated Task Management Systems 

With over 40 years of experience at Wall to Wall we were finding that some industries were experiencing difficulty in task management. Typically an employee will be given a set of tasks at the beginning of the work day and won’t be able to update management until the end of the day. With Wall to Wall’s integrated task management systems, radio users are able to send an alert to the controller once a task is complete, allowing the controller to respond and delegate tasks quickly and efficiently.

  • Text Messaging

Text messaging can provide even more discrete and efficient forms of communication alongside radioing. Wall to Wall can set you and your business up with preset text messages that can be sent at the touch of a button. Text messaging is also a function available with Trackitt that allows for communication to be recorded, particularly useful for training and monitoring purposes. 

  • Caller ID

Caller ID allows for radio communication receivers to identify the radioer sending the messages. This allows for efficient communication and is particularly useful when used in emergency and time sensitive situations. 

  • Panic/Emergency Call Functions

Similar to lone worker and man down function, the panic button/emergency call function allows for radio users to communicate an emergency to other radio users at the touch of a button. Radios with this specialised function are typically set up with GPS tracking and Caller ID to ensure as much information is communicated in an emergency situation at the touch of a button.

  • Automated Radio Alarm

Automated radio alarms can be set up to trigger alarms at particular situations. For example, if a fire alarm or an intruder alarm is activated, all radio users will be notified. An automated radio alarm will allow for your business to run smoother and and with faster responses when needed. Read more about how Wall to Wall’s alarm connectivity can help your business here.
