My last few posts have been about Channels, ZelloWork's mechanism for supporting group communications. I've already covered three Channel types, Team, Dynamic and Hidden Channels. Today's post is about the newest type of ZelloWork Channel, the Ad Hoc Channel.
I've been explaining the options that ZelloWork provides for group conversation. The app's Channels can accommodate just about any organization structure or set of work rules.
In a series of posts I'm walking through the options ZelloWork gives you for group communications. Radios, of course, provide shared frequencies that groups can talk on. But ZelloWork is an app that extends the traditional radio channel concept.
As we've discussed previously, ZelloWork is an app with support for group channels. But because it's an app, it offers much more versatility around channels than do 2-way radios. In particular, ZelloWork supports various channel types that meet the needs of different kinds of groups.
In my last post I pointed out that push-to-talk radios and push-to-talk apps are very different animals. Apps are software, which frees them from many of the limitations of a dedicated hardware device.
What's one big difference between 2-way radios and the ZelloWork push-to-talk app for work teams? That's easy. It's Channels.
In the wake of the fall's hurricanes, Zello has gotten involved in numerous public conversations about how to deal with large-scale emergencies. Today one of my colleagues is participating in a panel at Futurecast: The Future of Technology & Emergency Response.
Yesterday we had the great privilege of addressing a roomful of senior social media executives at SocialMedia.org's Leadership Retreat.
In the wake of the storms of September we've experienced significant growth in adoption of ZelloWork, our push-to-talk solution for work teams. We've been especially intrigued by the uptick in schools that have created ZelloWork networks.
Events and conference sponsors are migrating from radios to modern, versatile push-to-talk apps, and this has created a lot of opportunities for ZelloWork. But we're especially proud of one of our newest clients.
