Dispatchers have a lot of responsibility on any given day. Whether you are responsible for dispatching emergency vehicles and services, trucks for delivery routes, service trucks, or field services, there is a lot the push to talk two-way radio has to offer you and the organization you work for. These are just a few reasons why dispatchers of all types love push to talk two-way radios.

Greater Safety for Your Team

Whether you have people in harm’s way, working dangerous jobs; or you have people who are simply on the road a lot (a large enough risk in its own right on today’s roads), you can track the location of your drivers in an instant thanks to emergency broadcast messages and features and GPS location tracking available through most modern two-way radios.

Know the Closest Driver at a Glance

One of the most advantageous benefits of PTT two-way radios for dispatchers is the ability to quickly glance at a map and know the location of your drivers. This allows you to identify the nearest driver to handle your customer service needs. This creates satisfied customers and eliminates much of the waste involved in operating the old-fashioned way.

Track Driver Locations Throughout Shifts

There are many ways employees steal from their employers. One of the most important is the theft of time. Charging employers for labor when they are, instead, taking care of personal errands, or napping on the job. The ability to track the GPS location of your people in the field helps to keep them honest and can save your business a healthy chunk of money each year.
