How Can WAVE Help You?

Whether you're serving people or saving them...

WAVE makes it possible for your teams in the field or in the office, to communicate and collaborate effectively through voice and data – securely, reliably and in real-time – regardless of network, carrier or device.


Better Service, From Anywhere

Better service requires better connectedness. WAVE connects your smartphones, computers and radios onto a single platform so you can freely communicate and collaborate on the device that suits you best from virtually any location. From housekeeping to security to administration, your employee base is only a touch away.

Be Prepared for the big event

Improve communication between entertainers, caterers and other outside contractors. WAVE allows you to set up temporary licenses for contractors so they can talk on your communications channels using their current devices. And at the end of the job, those accounts can be quickly deactivated, with no need to organize the return of radios and accessories

Increase Operational Efficiency

Lower infrastructure costs by leveraging the devices your employees already have in place. Not all employees (or workplaces) need two-way radios. For those that don’t, WAVE can be placed on the same smart device they use for tasks like work order tickets, reducing costs and allowing employees to open and close tickets and work more efficiently.
