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.
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 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.
We just got back from Baltimore, where we attended the co-located Solid Waste Association of North America’s WASTECON and the International Solid Waste Association World Congress.
ZelloWork, our push-to-talk solution for work teams, has seen a lot of adoption by waste management organizations recently. We're delighted to have them as clients, of course, but we're also interested in why they've chosen ZelloWork. What we're finding is that waste management organizations have much in common with the other transport and logistics companies we work with.
Location Tracking is a new feature that enhances the value of our push-to-talk solution for many ZelloWork customers. Now, anyone using the administrator console can have a map view of ZelloWork users' locations anywhere in the neighborhood or around the world.
ZelloWork Channels are great for push-to-talk (PTT) communications between members of the same departments or levels of staff within your company. They are permanent, and user settings are easily managed from the admin console, which makes them great for day-to-day communications.
