Cell phones can do basically anything these days. Theyâ€™ve got WiFi, 4G LTE, GPS, Candy Crushâ€¦ the list goes on. But if youâ€™re relying on them to communicate with your crews, consider the following.
Two-way radios might not be the flashiest new technology, but that doesnâ€™t mean they arenâ€™t the best option for some tasks.
- Radios broadcast to groups: You can get messages out to your whole crew at once, no matter how far apart you are on a job site. Stop calling every person individually.
- Radios donâ€™t require cell signals. Are you inside a building that cuts off cell reception? No worries, bud. The frequencies that two-way radios operate on are great at penetrating concrete, metal, even the ground.
- Radios increase productivity. You donâ€™t have to wait for a guy to get down off the tower to call you back. Heâ€™s not taking his phone up hundreds of feet while heâ€™s working. With a radio, you can get info out instantly. You also can stop walking around a job site looking for the one person you need. A quick chirp on the radio eliminates that waste of time.
- They pay themselves off. In the scheme of things, they wonâ€™t break the bank. And with the time youâ€™re not wasting on less efficient means of communication, youâ€™ll be rolling in the dough.
