Experts in two-way radio communications for quarries to demonstrate latest products and functionality
InTouch Ltd, the leading suppliers of two-way radios to the quarrying industry, will be showcasing TRBOnet Motorola software, which provides a host of new functionality, such as GPS, one-to-one calling and geofencing. In addition, lone-worker functionality is now available for digital radios.
John Walden, managing director of InTouch Ltd, said: ‘We have been visiting the Hillhead exhibition for more than 20 years and it is still the leading event for the quarrying industry, providing a showcase for all the latest innovations and industry insights.
‘Our two-way radios have also been at the forefront of technology and innovation for more than 20 years, and we will keep developing our products for a better and safer work environment. We have been working hard on our presence at this year’s Hillhead event and have some new products and functionality to demonstrate.’
Mr Walden founded InTouch 34 years ago and now has 20 employees. Based in Morecambe, Lancashire, InTouch are an innovation catalyst for customers and partners, developing robust, high-quality, intelligent solutions that connect people, assets and information.
The company has a nationwide infrastructure that allows it to service, install and maintain more than 12,000 units of radio rental equipment for customers throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.
In 2010, InTouch Ltd introduced their exclusive and innovative AutoDialler lone-worker system – a safety feature for employees who have to work on their own for periods of time. The radio unit emits a continuous tone every 20 minutes, and if the worker does not respond, the system calls up to five pre-determined telephone numbers, sending an alert to advise that the safety of the lone worker on site may be compromised.
This has now been developed even further for digital technology, which allows a caller to contact the lone worker radio via telephone to ensure they are safe.
InTouch use only industry-leading Motorola equipment and offer flexible rental contracts that allow customers to add or remove equipment to suit their changing business needs.
