Why Vertel Push-To-Talk (PoC) is important to your business

Keep teams connected, feel more connected, and get more done.

Vertel Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) is a sophisticated mobile workforce management and communications platform. It helps keep mobile workforces safe, in touch, and productive.

Ideal for life- and mission-critical applications, Push-to-Talk leverages Vertel’s heritage as a pioneer in two-way radio. It combines the features of traditional two-way radio with the data functionality of today’s smartphones. This makes it an incredibly powerful tool for organisations that need to stay in touch with workers, no matter where they’re located.

Two-way radios offer one-touch communication and the ability to communicate in groups, keeping teams in contact even when they are out of mobile phone range. Smartphones offer the ability to record and share voice and use GPS location services and include other smart features like man-down and duress alerts.

Alone, each of these technologies falls short for mission- and life-critical applications. Combined in a single application, they are incredibly powerful

PoC Overview

Saving lives and preventing injuries with timely communication. Learn five ways to improve workers safety with PoC and PTT

In 2019, 162 workers were fatally injured while working, compared with 144 in 2018. In the first three months of 2020, 38 Australians were killed at work.

Many of these incidents could potentially have been avoided with the right measures in place. Staff members who work in isolation or remotely are at increased risk of suffering a workplace injury or fatality. It’s compulsory for employers to monitor the health and wellbeing of any employees working remotely or in isolation.

Workers can be considered isolated even if other people are close by. According to Safe Work Australia, isolated workers range from community nurses carrying out clinical visits to a group of workers in a base camp in a rural area. Making sure these workers have access to communications and emergency services is crucial when it comes to maintaining their safety.

What our customer say about our Push-to-Talk Solution…

Roy Dyson, regional operations manager, Dyson Group, said, “Dyson Group has a commitment to our drivers, as well as the general public, to deliver a safe and secure means of transportation. Inconsistent communications channels meant that our drivers did not always have a reliable method of communicating with each other or with head office, which could potentially put drivers in regional areas at risk in the event of an incident or emergency...The Vertel team listened to our requirements and came back to us with a technical solution that would meet our needs.
