Potholes are not small problems for American drivers or the companies tasked with repairing some 55 million potholes across the country. They cause damage to vehicles of all shapes and sizes and repairing them can be problematic because people rely on the roads where they are located to get through their days. That is why communication for commercial asphalt and pothole repair companies is critical. Fortunately, push-to-talk two way radios can be instrumental in helping your organization improve communication all around.
Improve Safety for Your Entire Team
Push-to-talk two-way radios allow for rapid communication. Only the touch of a button is needed to warn members of your team about people riding down the wrong side of the road, people speeding through flag points, and countless other dangers you may encounter during the day. In addition to challenges from other drivers and excessive heat or cold, you also face danger from snakes, crocodiles, and countless other wild animals along the way.
When emergencies do occur, push-to-talk two-way radios are also equipped with GPS location services so you can notify emergency services right away and send them to the exact location where they are needed.
Push-to-Talk Two-Way Radios are Rugged
Rugged radios are important for crews that work in rough conditions from one day to the next. These radios can handle being dropped without falling apart. With the right IP rating, your radios can even handle it if the sky suddenly opens up right over your heads pouring buckets of rain.
Transmit More than Voice Data
In addition to voice communication and messaging, most modern push-to-talk two-way radios also allow the transmission of text data, files, and images which can be instrumental as new orders come in for your teams throughout the day and new schematics, estimates, and exceptions are discovered along the way.
Helps You Keep Tabs on Your People
Chances are good that you pay your people well for the hard hours of labor in the heat of summer, cold of winter, etc. – not to mention the thankless jobs they do. However, it is important to make sure your staff are where they are supposed to be throughout the day and that you’re not paying them for extended lunch breaks or running personal errands on company time. The GPS location feature can help you track each man on your crew to make sure they’re filling potholes and not pieholes instead.
