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.
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.
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.
