Two-way Radios are more than just a “Box Solution”...It’s About Customer Service

Investing in two-way radios is a big step for any business, school, or facility. It’s important that as an end user, you know which two-way radios, features, licensing options, and systems are available to you. Too often businesses looking to buy radios are emailed a price list and a spec sheet from a vendor and expected to make a decision without handling the product. Or, they are pushed towards a certain radio model even though it may not be the best fit for their operation. 

Buying FCC licensed two-way radios for your team is more than just being sold a box with a radio in it and having to figure it out on your own. Factors like location, building size, industry, and user preference all come into play when finding the right radio for your team. Depending on the type of radio, there are many different features that can enhance your operations.

Having a go-to partner that is willing to come on site, test radios with you, and be your communications consultant is important to make sure your two-way radios or radio system operates correctly throughout your day-to-day operations. The relationship shouldn’t end after the sale either. Your communications partner should be there handling warranty repairs, reprogramming, and assist you when you are looking to expand your radio fleet and make adjustments in the future.

Here at Radio Resource, we offer more than just "box solutions", we offer personal communication solutions fit for your specific operations.

If you are interested in having one of our representatives come on site in the Denver Metro area, we would be more than happy to help you find the right solution.

Two-way radios are a great addition to businesses that need to keep their team connected. With two-way radios, there are a many earpiece and surveillance kit options. How can users know which will fit them and their operation best?

One of the most common accessory options for radio users are the surveillance kits. Most commonly, radio users tend to prefer the one or two-wire kits. What’s the difference you ask? With the one wire option, both the PTT button and earpiece are a part of the single wire. With the two-wire, the PTT button and the earpiece are each on their own wire.

Earpiece options like the Coil Tube, Ear Hook, and the D Ring are the most common among the various choices. Surveillance kits allow radio users to transmit and receive radio chatter through a headset. This works great for different industries such as hospitality, healthcare, construction, and many others. For noisy environments noise cancelling surveillance kits have proven to be effective in blocking out background noise so users are able to transmit more clearly.

Speaker mics can also be a great option for users in the construction, manufacturing, and even education industry. Some speaker mics even have the option to plug in an earpiece so users can better hear the radio communication if they are in noisy environments.

Two-way Radio vs. Cell Phone

Posted by Michael Pollex on Aug 10, 2018 2:09:11 PM

Two-way Radio vs. Cell Phone

 Two-way radios offer a great advantage over cell phones when it comes to keeping your work team connected, efficient, and on task. Often times it easy to lose reception on a cell phone or not connect instantly with the person you are attempting to call. Two-way radios from MOTOTRBO can connect you instantly with one person or all of your work force. With MOTOTRBO, you are able to send texts, emergency alerts, work order tickets, and much more.

Take for example a manufacturing plant. When a piece of machinery malfunctions in the plant, production comes to a halt. With a MOTOTRBO Digital radio the production manager can quickly send out an alert to ALL of the employees on the floor letting them know there is an issue. In this situation the production manager can quickly put in a work order ticket and request an order for new parts all over their MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio. MOTOTRBO allows you to easily transmit voice and data in an instant, allowing radio users to take care of the situation on hand with one device. Not to mention, two-way radios are far more durable than cell phones. With noise cancelling accessories and technology, two-way radios can help users communicate clearer in tough environments. Users can have more piece of mind knowing their radio is durable and can get the job done. Cell phones, especially in the manufacturing setting have proven to be less efficient, less durable, and more distracting. Quite often cell phones can lose service, are slow to turn on, and are not reliable in noisy situations.

Digital two-way radios from Motorola have been proven to withstand tough environments for long hours. There are even intrinsically safe options for two-way radios for those working in hazardous environments.
