Teams are more dispersed than ever. The variety of users and user equipment in the workplace continues to multiply. Businesses want a way to make communication easier and faster, while leveraging the resources they already have in place.
Today, the power of unified communications is expanding beyond the traditional office space and into the industrial areas where the revenue generation for many enterprises actually takes place.
These industrial employees – the production line worker, the hotel housekeeping and countless others – use different devices on different networks and face far different challenges communicating than office workers. Their preferred collaboration methods – radio, telephone, and even pager to resolve work tickets from dispatch or alarms from equipment – are focused on issue prevention or resolution, and optimized for their workflow and environment.
Examine how Unified Workgroup Communications enable workers to connect instantly, without boundaries and with added intelligence. Plus, discover how some emerging technologies on Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Unified Communications and Collaboration apply in the Unified Workgroup Communications space.
What if your staff could communicate with each other instantly and securely through push-to-talk (PTT) communications between smartphones, laptops, tablets, radios, landlines, or other connected devices? What if it did not matter where they were in the world, or to what network – LTE, LMR, LAN, Wi-Fi - they were connected? What if they were able to use a rich application ecosystem and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to extract valuable intelligence from the flood of data, and then share that information instantly with the team members who most need to know? This capability exists today. Take the first step toward a safer, more successful, and more efficient business by taking your communications further with Team Communications from Motorola Solutions.
