walkie talkiesA two way radio also known as “Walkie Talkie,” is generally a handheld device that can be used for a variety of purposes. The most common and popular use of this type of a radio is for communication. Such a radio can be used for sending and receiving data or signals at the same time. This makes these devices convenient to use.

Two way radios or walkie talkies often work where cell phones stop working. Two Way Radios traditionally do not rely on network towers or network service providers and are helpful for immediate conversation in remote zones. Two Way Radios are a cost-effective solution for communicating at remote localities and within a limited range.

Delivering solutions, not just equipment, crucial for modern-day two Way Radio dealers

So i discovered this short article on the web and i heard that just posting it as the whole article isn’t the right thing, I got permission from the original author and read up the way to curate articles, 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 inside the industry.

two way radio ip gatewaySelling boxes simply isn’t enough for radio dealers to thrive in today’s ever-changing communications environment.

That’s the message from Patrick Hobby, owner of QDS Communications, the 13-employee Motorola Solutions dealer and service shop based in Colorado that invented the SchoolSAFE solution that recently was deployed in an Ohio school district to enable direct communications between school personnel using a MOTOTRBO network and first responder on a P25 network.

“I think it’s possible for an organization to have a customer connection that deals in commoditized radio products. In selling two-way radio products, for example, people already know what they want, and they’re just looking for the features, the right channels, whether it’s a repeater or this or that,” Hobby said during an interview with IWCE’s Urgent Communications. “But my advice to the industry is to reach down deeper into the solutions business—the integration of solutions into the marketplace, with training being the lead application.”

Such an approach requires a channel partner to recognize what customers are seeking from their communications, understand what challenges they face and then work to deliver solutions that address key difficulties, Hobby said. Often, the ability to accomplish this begins at a personal level, not a technological one, he said.

“People make all of the difference in the world—basically, that one relationship that’s spawned from the dealer organization that turns into a value-added relationship, based on the spoken word and what you’re really delivering,” Hobby said.

“What I would encourage to dealers is that they need to dig deeper into their understanding of how their customers make their money and become value added to that process, instead of being just a commodity dealer that does not know why they use the Walkie Talkies, for example.”

Indeed, the notion of SchoolSAFE was developed in the aftermath of the tragic 1999 shootings at Columbine High School, where a lack of interoperable communications between public-safety agencies was cited as a problem, according to Hobby.

“We knew about the communications issues from the Columbine report and being local here and knowing people that dealt with that tragedy firsthand,” Hobby said. “So it was spawned from our understanding of communications, as it related to the Columbine tragedy.”

Ultimately, QDS Communications developed a patented solution of software and hardware that provides a direct link between the MOTOTRBO systems often used in schools and the P25 systems used by many public-safety agencies. The link is activated by a 911 dispatcher, if it is determined that school personnel and first responders would benefit from direct communications.

More than 200 SchoolSAFE systems have been deployed, with most of them being located in Colorado, Hobby said. QDS Communications tried to install the solution at locations outside of the state but quickly realized “how brutally expensive and time consuming it was to try to reach out and work effectively in other states,” he said.

Recently, Motorola Solutions decided to help QDS Communications deploy SchoolSAFE in each of the 10 schools in the Chardon Local Schools district in a pilot program. It’s a relationship that would not have been considered had QDS Communications simply decided to sell equipment, Hobby said.

“We’re not a dealer; we’re well beyond a dealer,” Hobby said. “[When QDS Communications was founded] back in 2004, one of our five contracts … is called a dealer contract. One of them is called a service contract. One of them is called a manufacturer’s representative contract. Another one is called an agency contract. And the dealer piece is the least valuable of the whole bunch, because that’s your commodity.

“SchoolSAFE is not a commodity.”

Golf Clubs You use Them While You’re at Them Communication on the Green

two way radio quizWithout giving too much about this walkie talkie pink short article, but I found it exciting and related to what I’m now doing.

Golf clubs (by which we mean the locations, not the implements) are huge expanses of land. They cover vast distances, employ large amounts of people and are reasonably complicated environments to run.

In addition to the necessity of expedient communication between various layers of management, general health and safety concerns and the dedication required to keep a good course looking pristine, two way radios are vital to golf clubs for keeping staff connected with each other. They also help to provide security over large spaces and much more besides. Let’s go into all this in a bit more detail, shall we?

Two-way radios are easy to use, cost effective and supremely reliable. A mobile phone (or similar gadget) simply would not be anywhere near as dependable as a Walkie Talkie, especially when one considers that most of a golf course is outdoors and therefore subject to weather, atmospheric conditions and other intangibles.

Two-way radios are rugged devices, designed for use on all kinds of terrain. When the tasks required are largely outdoors, it makes sense to employ the same technology that soldiers use in the desert or the police use in the city, doesn’t it?

Radios offer a fast and effective response to emergencies of any kind. Instant communication is a vital tool when it comes to reporting on a mishap and ensuring that help arrives A.S.A.P. Radios also allow staff to report on the condition of the green, relaying player feedback directly to management, ensuring a swift and professional response to any concerns. This, in turn, can help to cultivate customer loyalty, providing a good club with legions of devoted players who will attract other customers and thus provide the club with steady business.

But that isn’t all a walkie-talkie is good for at a golf course. In general, golf courses require a high degree of management skill and the key to good management is good communication. Two-way radios help to ensure that the on-course staff are prepared for the player’s individual needs. Radios help the other amenities of the club (shops, restaurants, toilets etc) to run smoothly and continue to offer high standards and quality service.

Without radios, a golf club would require several levels of management, if only to handle all the travel between spaces. The management of a decent course would represent a logistical nightmare. A long, leisurely round of golf (enjoyed by everyone from Larry David to Alice Cooper) could instead represent a stress-filled, obstacle-riddled game that many would give up on before they ever even teed off.
