Push-to-talk communication in construction

Within the construction industry, the market can be very challenging. In order to stay competitive you need to maximise productivity. However this can be very difficult. Construction sites enlist a vast number of challenges and bring fair few knocks, dirt, dust, water and hazardous materials along the way, accompanied by loud noises. Safety and communication is an essential aspect within a fast paced industry. The need for fast effective responses is a requirement in order to ensure the safety of all the operatives on site to improve the productivity and efficiency.

Construction firms that embrace developing technologies, like push-to-talk technology, can gain significant advantages over their competitors. Storm’s market leading technology offers a viable solution to communicate with groups within your team, and individuals allowing you to communicate to a wide range of professionals on site e.g. site managers, contractors and inspectors.
