Motorsport Comms with Kenwood Nexedge two Way Radio

I have witnessed tons of material on this blog it is the very best

Every employer has a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all its employees in the workplace and equally that persons not in their employment are “not exposed to risks to their health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable” – with the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act introduced in 2007, the implications for enterprises in the public and private sectors of not taking lone worker protection seriously have escalated.

SL4000 walkie talkies are already widely in use in lone worker applications across chemical and manufacturing plants, utilities, mining, security and transport industries where personnel often cover large, remote areas or operate in hazardous environments.

However, with the increase in flexible working times, care in the community services, home deliveries and reductions in workforces operating from fixed locations, more people than ever are now operating as lone workers, often in situations where they may be exposed to potential accidents and inappropriate or violent behaviour.

While the reliability and quality of any Kenwood two-way radio would prove to be an asset in most lone worker scenarios, the NEXEDGE® range of digital two-way hand portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle two-way radio units offer much more than the ability to transmit voice and data instantly and efficiently.

All models feature Emergency Key and Emergency Call features as standard, while some advanced models additionally offer Lone Worker and an Emergency Advanced Motion Detection Function, which make them ideal for incorporating within a robust health and safety and lone worker policy.

NEXEDGE® Digital Two-way Radios with Lone Worker features include both hand-portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle units.

Three Places Where Two-Way Radios Can Improve Customer Service for Outdoor Retail and Service.

So i found this article on the net and i understand that just posting it like a whole article isn’t an excellent thing, I got permission from the original writer and read up how to curate posts, so this is it…….i thought this was interesting as it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working in the business.
Forestry Suppliers, a leading supplier of forestry, agricultural, environmental and surveying equipment for outdoor professional use, released a statement today detailing the benefits and uses of 2 way Radio communication to improve efficiency and customer service for industries with stationary workstations, such as gas stations and travel centers; outdoor recreation businesses such as canoe and kayak rentals, zip line courses, and campgrounds; and outdoor retail operations like nurseries and entertainment venues.
Speed and efficiency are more important than ever for jobs involving customer service. A2012 study from American Expressfound that on average, customers tell 15 people about their good customer service experiences but share their bad experiences with 24 people. To deliver top-notch customer service, businesses need the right tools and for many, two-way radios are part of their toolkit.
The key to better customer service and operations is instant communication between employees. Some industries have employees both in the field and within a storefront, working in collaboration. Using two-way radio communication for the three tasks below can raise the level of customer service by enabling instant communication from the front office to more mobile areas of the business:
1. Check Stock. Sales representatives can get updates on an item’s stock status without leaving their post within the retail area. While back-office staff check the status and bring items up, sales reps can continue serving the customer by answering additional questions and creating a positive experience.
2. Resolve Issues and Emergencies: While performing their duties, managers and other coworkers can sometimes be difficult to locate. Walkie talkies make communication quick and easy. Plus, two-way radios offer a more discreet communication method compared with storewide speaker systems that disrupt a pleasant shopping experience. For employees confined to a workstation as well as workers who are rarely at a desk (and a telephone landline), two-way radios provide a solution that puts customer service at the forefront.
3. Prepare for Customers’ Arrival: As customers arrive for outdoor recreation activities such as kayaking or zip lining, two-way radios can improve efficiency and the customer service experience. Check-in staff use two-way radios to alert back-office or outdoor staff to the size and needs of the group. The back office staff can then prepare for the group’s arrival, gathering items such as kayaks, paddles, life jackets, and other safety gear. The extra prep time allows the group to begin their activity sooner and with a positive customer service experience.
Companies seeking to improve their customer service capabilities should consider using business radios, such asMotorola’s CLS Seriesof two-way radios (short for Clear, Light, and Simple). The Motorola CLS Series radios are compact, lightweight, economical, and long lasting with up to 14 hours of battery life per charge. The CLS is easy to use with its push-to-talk feature, requiring little to no training.
