DispatchPLUS: Not Your Grandfather's Walkie Talkie

Thirty years ago, NEXTEL developed a national “Push-to Talk” mobile network with more than 20 million subscribers, and a subsequent merger with Sprint.

Flash forward and PDV Wireless, a leader in mobile workforce communications and location-based solutions that increase the productivity of field-based workers and the efficiency of dispatch and call center operations, has developed a Next Gen two-way Motorola radio that is made just for 21st century businesses and it operates on a private wireless network.

“pdvWireless will continue to develop practical solutions aimed at providing better workforce communications and documentation for our customers.  Our top priorities are to provide affordable mobile communications and workforce management solutions allowing our customers to achieve a substantial ROI by improving efficiency and/or increasing revenue,” said John C. Pescatore, CEO, PDV Wireless.

The pdvWireless service, which is called DispatchPLUS, has upgraded the Push-to-Talk walkie-talkie. This device is made for businesses that have a mobile workforce such as security, construction, utility, transportation, and waste management.

“By contributing to better, safer, and more efficient communications, pdvWireless’ DispatchPlus can have a substantial positive effect on a company’s bottom line.  For one low monthly service rate of $30 per unit, users get unlimited access to our wide area push-to-talk network and all of pdvWireless’ workforce management solutions such as GPS location tracking, advanced geo-fencing and text messaging.  This bundle of valuable services makes it possible for our customers to achieve substantial savings over similar services on a cellular network,” said Pescatore.            

Also the solution includes detailed voice reports with location, date and time stamps, color-coded status mapping with real-time updates on every worker, Web-based dispatch with Intelligent Queuing and ”listened to” verification. It is in compliance with USDOT Distracted Driver regulations.

Currently the two-way radio is offered in many other locations and DispatchPlus is here to stay as it re-defines the companies who rely heavily on mobile communication devices.
