A scalable communications solution specifically developed for the security industry, without any restrictions in terms of coverage, channels or number of users will provide Norwegian security company Lillehammer Sikkerhet with a more cost effective solution for push-to-talk (PTT) communications and panic alarm. This summarises the new co-operation between Lillehammer Sikkerhet and Swedish group voice communications services specialist GroupTalk.
GroupTalk will deliver a cutting edge push-to-talk service that can be used directly in the guards' smartphone, and the number of users can be easily adapted depending on the current need. The service solution for Lillehammer Sikkerhet will also contain push-to-talk accessories such as airtube headset, tailored for guards and related bluetooth PTT button. All staff will be able to communicate with each other instantly through a single push of a button in a user friendly, flexible and safe manner, using smartphones, tablets or PCs. GroupTalk's solution is cloud-based so no need for intercom or walkie-talkies.
"We are pleased to be able to provide Lillehammer Sikkerhet with a cost effective solution for both PTT voice communication and panic alarm," said Magnus Hedberg, CEO of GroupTalk."The security industry is our main focus, with much to gain from using PTT solutions like ours, using standard smartphones, apps and operating over the existing mobile network."
Like many other security companies, Lillehammer Sikkerhet perform a wide variety of tasks, with seasonal activities and heavy work load at weekends and on events. Due to that, the need for the number of security guards has a great variation. Usually, the deployment of a traditional radio solution that meets the needs of peak activity/traffic can become extremly costly, especially for hardware and administration.
"Group Talks push-to-talk service is perfect for our business needs," said Per-Arne Finnstad, CEO, Lillehammer Sikkerhet. "The service is easy to use, provides a scalable communication solution, without the restrictions one usually encounters in traditional radio solutions in terms of coverage, number of channels and variety in the number of users."
