Feature: One-Click Push-to-Talk

What is One-click Push-to-Talk?

One-click PTT allows users to get in and out of PTT calls faster by having the button (see below image). The feature, which launched in September, is part of our push to make Team on the Run both faster and more accessible for users.

By using a PTT button that doesn’t block navigating on the app and improves the start session using only one click, end users are able to swiftly get in touch with their employees by just clicking on their name in the contact directory.

The best existing Walkie-Talkie is not a Walkie-Talkie at all!

Quick and effective communication is critical to the success of any organization. Successful managers understand this and put measures in place to facilitate clear communication between team members. Walkie-Talkies are an extremely popular and cost-effective communication method on constructions sites, during the planning of an event, in private security, military operations, etc. where they come in very handy, provided team members are within a certain distance (range) from one another.

In addition to range, traditional Walkie-Talkie devices fall short in a number of other areas such as picking up static, interferences, limited number of channels (frequencies), bulkiness, cost of hardware, etc.

Team on the Run Virtual Walkie-Talkie technology solves these issues and brings teams an improved and very powerful communication solution to help run daily operations smoothly and improve overall activity results.

Team on the Run Walkie -Talkie runs on all Smartphone devices, so there is no need to invest in hardware to connect team members. A simple app allows managers the ability to create unlimited channels – that can be named to better organize discussions –  from which to communicate with crystal clear audio within a secure environment provided you have a data or WiFi connection.

Team on the Run Walkie-Talkie also eliminates the proximity issue allowing you to connect team members wherever they are located around the globe. This makes it a valuable communication solution not only for teams dispersed in the field but for office workers as well, providing a cost-effective alternative to expensive long distance conference calls / IP phones or vulnerable free conferencing software.

Mobile work tools for commuters and travelers – Does your business communication app work offline?

TOTR Social media messages v3-01

Daily Mail estimates in this article that the average time we spend commuting in our lives is 18 months. This means that over a year of our lives is spent waiting to get from point A to point B to actually do something productive. If you work in a big city such as DC, LA or NYC, or you are what is referred to as a mega-commuter, maybe even more time is spent idle in transit. Talk about a waste of time.

Cities continue to grow and even though working remotely – or from home – is becoming more and more popular, those who travel back and forth to the office are still seeing their commute times slowly increase over time.

Technology to the Rescue: Mobile Business Communication and Work Tools

Whether you work from home or commute to your place of work, technology is quickly evolving to meet the needs of the current work environment. Business mobile communication solutions such as Team on the Run, conveniently allow work to get done outside of the office.

There are a number of popular messaging tools surfacing all over the app stores but few combine ease of use and speed with security and organization – so critical in the business environment – like Team on the Run does. This next generation tool, that runs on both smartphones and web browsers and syncs in real-time across devices, was developed to solve the issues of the modern day worker.

If your commute involves long hours on public transportation, the Team on the Run service gives you the appropriate tools to gain back that year and a half of your life by allowing you to get a head start on your work. Team on the Run is great to stay connected with your team back at the office or dispersed in the field. The tool pushes contact info for all company members into a dedicated mobile corporate directory in your smartphone and allows you to group users for different chat sessions by department or by project. Broadcast messages in a group or initiate a multi-participant push-to-talk conference call. Access your cloud storage to retrieve files and exchange them securely and instantly through the app. All of your exchanges will automatically sync to your web browser so that you can pick up on your desktop at work or at home at your convenience. All of this with an easy to use solution with end-to-end encryption and in a secure closed circuit environment.

No internet connection – no problem. Does your Mobile Messaging App work Offline? 

All this sounds great but you may be thinking that all off this is no good because you lose connection on the subway or on a plane. Think again – Team on the Run was built with this and other issues in mind. Our mission is to make your and your business more productive by making it easy for you to work anytime, anywhere.

To solve the data connection issue, Team on the Run uses two different techniques:

– Fall-back SMS: when activated, this feature continuously monitors to check that all parties on sending and receiving end have a data connection. If this is not the case, the message is converted and sent as an SMS. This improves the success of message reception and lets you go on with your day and worry about other stuff.

– Offline mode: no need to have a connection to open the app and view your existing conversations. Most airlines are adding affordable in-flight wifi connections but even if it is impossible to get any kind of connection – data or WiFi – Team on the Run will still be able to open, let you see existing conversations and queue up new messages to be sent once a connection is established.

There is a lot Team on the Run can do for you. Give it a try for free by subscribing to the service and registering your team HERE.
