Why choose GroupTalk?

Over the years we have learnt that GroupTalk customers typically fall into one of four categories. We find that it is more approriate to explain the nature of theses categories than the traditional approach to present case studies for each of our different customer verticals. 

We believe that you can recognize your organization in the categories below.

Team communication for collaboration

We're looking for an efficient collaboration solution for our mobile workforce

Businesses looking to be competitive are going digital with a mobile-first digital transformation strategy. The mobile phone is becoming the platform that enables efficient workflows, keeping dispersed teams collaborating effectively and it’s the growth and productivity driver, regardless of your industry.

Everyone has a phone and it is fine for making person to person calls. 

However, in many businesses phone calls are not enough, there exists an explicit need to quickly speak and coordinate in groups. By using GroupTalk all organizations can benefit from the power of group communication, without infrastructure investments or costly implementation projects.

The GroupTalk services allows the mobile workforce to collaborate more effectively and increase safety. 

Below are examples of industry verticals that benefit from real-time group communication via voice and text in GroupTalk, click on your industry to read more information: security companies and public safety, aviation, road assistance, taxi, construction, transport, retail and shopping malls, offshore - oil, gas and wind mills, ATmosphere EXplosible (ATEX) working environment, hotels, manufacturing, ports, sports, eventsrestaurants, nonprofit organization, etc.

Expand coverage with Push to Talk

We want to significantly extend the coverage of our existing two way radio network

It’s a fact; some customers need to continue using their Tetra or DMR radio systems. The reasons might differ, often some parts of the operations are located in an area with no or limited mobile phone network coverage. Another reason might be that the communication should work back-to-back (DMO), where radios can talk to one another without any kind of base station or hub.

We hear customers saying that they wish that their radio networks had better coverage as well as that they had access to more radios from time to time. But it is costly to build out networks with extensive coverage and invest in radios to meet peak usage. 

From a practical and economic perspective it can be wise to look into deploying a GroupTalk radio bridge for interoperability between two way radios and smartphones. This provides a cost effective solution that combines the existing radios with phones and PCs, a solution without range limitations.

Airlines, offshore, ports, logistic terminals and transportation, taxi and ski resorts are typical verticals that can benefit from extending their radio networks.

Smartphone as walkie talkie

We're looking to modernize our current two way radio system

Much can be said about traditional two way radio systems, but often they have an impressive lifespan. Despite that, we have number customers who come to us to replace their two way radio solutions that are at the end of the road and instead want to switch to a modern solution.

In addition to the financial advantage of using your smartphone as a two way radio (walkie talkie) is the flexibility. With GroupTalk's functionality, voice quality, coverage and the modern web based administration of the GroupTalk service, flexibility increases for the digital worker. These are some of the most important factors before our customers choose to switch from an old two way radio system to a smartphone as a two way radio.  

Moving from old routines to new possibilities paves the way for smoother group communication and a more efficient working day. Using your smartphone as a walkie talkie means you only need one device for all forms of group communication. Less to carry, maintain, pay and charge.

Taxi Norra Uppland did exactly this, using their smartphone as a two way radio (walkie talkie).
