4 Considerations for Implementing Location Services with Radio Dispatch
Location Services allow dispatch operators to do more than just speak to people in the field, they can accurately monitor the movements of those on their network. The productivity and safety benefits are vast, with response times in critical situations significantly reduced.
For a more comprehensive look at how GPS integration can benefit your organization, Omnitronics has produced this white paper – 4 Considerations for Implementing Location Services with Radio Dispatch.
Choosing the best location services for your organization can present a few challenging options, so this white paper presents four things organizations need to think about when implementing Location Services in a radio dispatch environment.
- Radio status and identification
- Configuring geofences to control movement of users
- Configuring custom warnings for certain events
- Direct-dialling unique users from within maps
- Viewing and playing back location history
Our white paper features further details about how interoperability can benefit any network, and examines some of the challenges that Location Services integration can address.
3. Integration with Dispatch
To educate dispatch operators on how the integration of Location Services will impact their existing operation, within the white paper you will find some of the key interface features and how they are integrated into the dispatch console.
4. Costs and Licensing
Mapping in particular is one of the areas where the cost structures can be confusing, with solutions including household names like Google Maps down to more specialized providers such as OpenStreetMaps and MapQuest. Our white paper breaks down your options in more detail, clarifying the pricing structure you can expect associated with Location Services and options to customize your solution.
