Communication Solutions For Snow Removal Businesses
1. Quick deployment of business resources
Snow removal resources are sometimes required to deploy quickly in order to bring quick relief to roads after a snow storm. Inrico PoC radios do not require expensive base stations for network reliability. They also do not require time consuming programming, as additional functionality can be deployed over the air (OTA) through the Inrico Dispatch Console.
2. Recommended Inrico models for snow removal businesses
Inrico PoC radios come in various design options suitable for various business scenarios. We recommend the use of our screenless options for snow removal businesses, as workers would only require push-to-talk (PTT), as well as the rich data features available for all our devices. Devices with screens are not recommended for snow removal businesses, as they can be distracting. Also, it may prove difficult to operate a touch screen device when working in the cold. See our best recommendations below:
The T522A is rugged ( with an IP54 waterproof rating), screenless, capable of paring with a variety of convenient accessories, including speaker microphones, Bluetooth microphone, gang chargers. This PoC radio is also capable of operating in very low temperatures.
Inrico IRC590 is rugged (with an IP68 rating), and comes with a small informative display that can be flipped as needed; also capable of paring with a variety of convenient accessories, as well as the ability to operate in very low temperatures. This radio is also capable of video recording.
Equipping each member of your snow removal team with an Inrico portable PoC radio can increase your business efficiency tremendously, as they can communicate with each other at the simple push of a button, making work a breeze.

4. Coordinate effectively with Inrico Dispatch Console and iConvNet
