Overcome Challenges By Integrating Plant Communications
Manufacturers face another set of challenges in this rebounding market. More companies are shifting from outsourcing overseas to “next shoring” their products closer to where they are sold to improve efficiencies. And consumers, emboldened by social media, expect instant gratification and faster delivery times.
Whether it is filling job positions or filling customer orders, manufacturers need strategies to stay competitive. According to the Motorola Nationwide Manufacturing Survey, companies are looking for an integrated communications platform to help them increase workforce productivity, improve worker safety and reduce downtime. They want plant communications to connect all workers and devices seamlessly, and expedite communications between machines and people automatically.
Meet Or Beat Your Deadlines with Team Communications
Motorola Solutions is with you on the front line of this new industrial revolution. Our Team Communications platform takes push-to-talk (PTT) beyond the boundaries of radio, allowing all of your employees to communicate instantly, from anywhere, while leveraging intelligence from a wide range of applications designed to help your business succeed and keep your employees safe from harm. Manufacturers around the globe trust us to enable seamless collaboration between their teams on the plant floor, in the front office, and on the delivery dock. When teams can communicate clearly and instantly, from anywhere, safety is enhanced, downtime is reduced, and deadlines are met.
Ensure Worker Safety And Security
The plant floor is a dangerous place when the lines are humming and schedules are tight. Key personnel on the floor carry MOTOTRBO™ radios, optimized to hear and be heard in noisy environments, with reliable coverage throughout the entire facility. However, other critical decision makers may be in the front office… at a sister facility… or out of town at an industry event.
When emergency decisions must be made, Motorola Team Communications extend your existing radio talkgroups to any device, on any network, anywhere they have connectivity, providing instant communications with no boundaries to your critical personnel.
This means communications to any device: Motorola radios. Other manufacturers’ radios. Mobile devices. Laptops. Tablets. And connection to any network: Motorola LMR. Other manufacturers’ LMR. 4G. 3G. Wi-Fi. Motorola Team Communications connects them all, sharing critical voice and data to enable you to make informed decisions in an emergency.
- Risk can be controlled
- Harm can be mitigated
- Downtime can be reduced
Workers are a critical commodity in high demand. Keep yours safe with Team Communications.

In the constant battle to minimize downtime and eliminate waste, a unified Team Communications platform can be an invaluable weapon. Asset management, work order ticketing, and alarm and telemetry applications help keep the production lines producing and the scheduled maintenance on schedule.
In the event of an unexpected outage, these applications – coupled with instant push-to-talk communication to any user on any device, anywhere – help to resolve issues as quickly as possible while still meeting critical deliveries.
Your employees are your most valuable asset, especially in the current climate where skilled workers are in short supply. Team Communications allow them to share ideas instantly, solve problems quickly, and keep your productivity at its peak.
