In a world where effective communication can make or break the success of an operation, G4S, a global leader in security services, faced a significant challenge in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The use of traditional Motorola walkie-talkies posed difficulties in long-range communication and came with the burden of high data plan costs especially when moving cross-border.
The Challenge: Bridging Communication Gaps and Reducing Costs in the DRC
G4S used to rely on Motorola walkie-talkies for their team communication, but they soon realized that this was not the best option for their operations in the DRC. Their teams often struggled to maintain communication in areas with poor connectivity, and the high costs associated with data plans were becoming unsustainable.
The Solution: Tramigo MCPTT
With a reputation in the Push-to-talk industry, G4S turned to Tramigo for a solution to their needs. Tramigo’s MCPTT (Mission-Critical Push-to-Talk) solution offered the perfect remedy, tailored to the specific challenges faced in the DRC. G4S chose to gradually adopt the Tramigo MCPTT ecosystem, beginning with the replacement of their existing Motorola walkie-talkies with Tramigo MCPTT devices, which are rugged, waterproof, and have long battery life.
To complement the hardware, G4S integrated Tramigo’s software into their communication infrastructure. This software not only facilitated seamless communication but also provided robust tools for monitoring and managing teams, even in the most remote and harsh areas in the DRC.
