Why Two Way Radios are Important for Your Firm.
Before the world came to know about smartphones, people relied on two-way radios. However, just because there are cell phones now doesn’t mean they have been rendered obsolete. In job site, mobile phones are often used in communication because they are multi-functional and even convenient. Nonetheless, the two-way radios are still the best option when you are at a job site. In cases of emergencies, a lot of landlines and cell service towers will not be working. However, if you still have a two-way radio you will be able to communicate with other people. Also, communication during emergencies will reach more people if you can relay the message to a group. Two-way radios messages will be heard by anyone who is around. In the case of mobile phones, you will have to call each person individually. If the information is passed to a specific person who should let the rest know, there might be inconveniences when he or she forgets and at times the message has been changed in the process of passing it along.
The two-way radios are very durable and they do not weight a lot. In the event that they have to be taken to rough environments, you can comfortably use them unlike mobile phones which require you to buy a casing not to mention the fact that they do not get damaged because of falls. The radios are built according to IP and military specifications which means the environment has been considered in their use. Because most job sites do not have charging ports where the two-way radios can be charged, their batteries can last for long hours with someone extending up to 24 hours. You can take a fully charged two-way radio with you when you are going to the job site and it will serve you well.
The amount of money you will spend in buying a two way radio is very low compared to what people spend on cell phones. There are some mobile phones which cost even one thousand dollars and above and those will drain the firm’s budget if you ought to get them. With two way radios, you will not be paying for calling minutes, service contracts of even monthly fees. Also, each worker does not need a separate radio and you can have them share to cut the costs. The communication is always clear. View here for more information concerning these radios from Brentwood Communications.
