Push to Talk initiative

Intermec and Mobile Tornado have formed a pan-EMEA partnership to provide Push To Talk (PTT) mobile services on Intermec rugged CN3 handheld computers.
This will enable staff to communicate quickly with a supervisor when needing to answer a customer query in the field. It combines voice communication and data management in a handheld device, so users can avoid carrying a separate PDA for data as well as a mobile phone.
Also, by using the global GSM mobile phone network instead of a local RF transmitter, a CN3 with PTT will have coverage virtually everywhere.
It can integrate with new or existing mobile back-office applications. PC-based central dispatch software also allows a business the flexibility to view field workers’ availability and broadcast company communications to the entire mobile workforce or selected members of it.
