While you may have never considered two-way radios until now, the truth is they can perform more effectively than other communication devices, even phones, in many businesses. Also known as walkie-talkies, two-way radios, offer your business an excellent way to enhance productivity, increasing both the efficiency of your employees and their safety. To understand the significance of investing in two-way radios for your company, you must first home in on how your team members communicate with the existing devices you provide. If you are like most business owners, you are already providing access to landlines, mobile phones, SMS texting, and email for your employees. These methods of communication work well in some situations but fall short in others. With that in mind, let’s explore the advantages of two-way radios when compared to other forms of communication in your business.
The Pros of Two-Way Radios Versus Other Business Communication Devices
Two-Way Radios Offer Mobility Advantages – Two-way radios are mobile and durable. Unlike landlines which have a fixed location and require a constant power source connection and mobile phones which may be obstructed due to a lack of signal access or overloaded in the event of an emergency. Being mobile and durable means they are waterproof and dustproof, and they can function effectively even in remote environments. Two-way radios function well in large facilities, on construction sites, across school campuses, and other locations were employees must be mobile to cover wide areas. When needed, they can be boosted with additional power and repeaters to increase signal range with the aid of distributed antenna systems (DAS) and bi-directional amplifiers (BDAs).
Two-Way Radios Don’t Require Scrolling or Searching to Communicate
Two-way radios use one-button technology to talk, which means no contact list scrolling or searching for contact information when its needed. The radios can be programed for communication with teams or individuals, as needed, helping your employees communicate effectively even in emergency situations. Two-way radio networks can allow one person to call an entire group at the same time with the press of a button, without the need to orchestrate a conference call or set up work groups via mobile phone.

The ability to communicate immediately is vital during an emergency, but also extremely useful when your production line is down and maintenance is needed ASAP, or a customer needs to know if additional products can be obtained directly from the warehouse. In comparison, mobile phones require both users have the needed battery charge and signal strength to communicate quickly. In addition, two-way radios, unlike mobile phones, function in remote locations as well as underground, and in other places where phones are unreliable.
