Spring and summer mean a busy season, more employees, and more customers for greenhouses. Like many garden centers and plant nurseries, you’ll probably be hiring some seasonal help to get you through the seasons. While this may be a necessary part of your business, it can pose problems too. Namely, communication.
Chances are, you won’t only have more employees, but you’ll have a variety of employees working different jobs. You may have some employees taking care of different plants, along with retailers, retail managers/supervisors, harvesters, customer service workers, propagation workers, and more. Needless to say, it may be a lot for you to handle and keep track of.
Luckily, there is an easy solution: equipping your staff with push to talk two-way radios. Equipping each member of your staff with two-way radios ensures fast, effective communication; provides quality assurance; and helps management stay informed about potential problems, employee and customer questions, and other challenges employees face during the course of a day.
Below, are some more ways that two-way radios can help your greenhouse run smoothly and effectively.
Deliver Better Customer Service
As with every business, good customer service is never overlooked. Using two way radios ensures that your staff can communicate effectively and easily to get your customers their products efficiently, and answer any questions they may have. This will reduce wait times for your customers, and inevitably increase their satisfaction with your business.
If you’re thinking that you may only need the radios during your busy season, and don’t want to pay for something when you don’t need it, you’re in luck. Push-to-talk two way radios are scalable to meet your needs, unlike mobile phone contracts. Push-to-talk radios have no long-term commitment so you only need to pay for them when you really need them.
Durable and Water Resistant Equipment
Push to talk two-way radios are significantly more durable and weather resistant than mobile devices. Plus, you can choose radios that are specifically designed to be even more resistant to the elements. For example, look for radios with high IP water ratings. This means that if any radios get sprayed by a hose, dropped in a water bucket, or are exposed to the high humidity in your greenhouse, they will come out good as new. Furthermore, you can choose a radio that is resistant to solid matte,r such as dirt or grit too, ensuring that you won’t have to constantly be replacing your equipment.
Now is the time to get your greenhouse communication in good order before the rush of the spring, summer, and fall seasons. Reach out to us at PeakPTT at 855-600-6161 to discuss the right solution for your business.
