By | Digital Radios

Warehouses across Australia have one main necessity in common: teams who need to stay in constant communication with each other to ensure efficiency of workflow and workplace safety. In any warehouse there are numerous every day to day activities, involving people, processes, equipment and safety which are paramount. Not staying informed on what is happening on the warehouse floor can cause inefficiencies and confusion in operations. Two Way Radios are key to warehouse communications and keeping employees safe and equipment operating.


Performance beyond mobile cell phones

To get the job effectively, relying on cell phones and pagers is not the most efficient because these devices are prone to poor reception, taking time to connect multiple parties, relaying information and coordinate processes can reduce efficiency. Mobile phones have drawbacks such as limited battery power, background noise, and weakened security. Moreover, they’re an expensive option rather than two way radios when it comes to factory communications.
