Can communication really be expected to boost efficiency across transport networks?

It’s becoming more and more of a challenge to boost efficiency when up against a backdrop of rising urban populations, the proliferation of road traffic, climate change and heightened security risks. Whilst the success will depend on many factors, the role of communication should not be underestimated. When the right two-way radios and applications are applied to maximise their potential, they can transform efficiency in the transport business.

Three immediate benefits that a reliable, intelligent and future-ready communications network can bring are:

1. Improve fleet control and dispatch
2. Accelerate response to incidents and service requests
3. Spend less time and effort on maintenance

In a nutshell, when your staff can communicate and collaborate quickly and clearly, you can reduce costs, improve reliability and deliver excellent passenger experiences.

6 TWO WAY RADIO NON-NEGOTIABLES

When a radio is treated as more than just a device to talk over, that’s when efficiency is optimised. These 6 features illustrate just this point:-

1. EFFICIENT WORK ASSIGNMENTS: Improve the passenger experience by accelerating effective response to incidents and service requests, with Work Order Ticketing
2. ENHANCED COMMAND AND CONTROL: Maintain great service for passengers, with integrated voice, text and data communications for advanced fleet control and dispatch functionalities
3. PUSH-TO-TALK EVERYWHERE: Managers and key people outside the radio network can have PTT functionality right devices, with WAVE Work Group Communications
4. SMART TELEMETRY: Track fleet assets, analyse performance, optimise maintenance regimes
5. REMOTE DEVICE MANAGEMENT: Radio programming over Wi-Fi simplifies updates and management, without interrupting voice communications
6. CLEAR CONVERSATIONS: High quality audio, Bluetooth™ wireless accessories, reduced background noise
