We are happy to introduce the latest addition to the Savox Promate product family. The all new The Savox Promate BT COM is a new and unique type of product, in the line of POC audio accessories. Freedom of movement, long working hours, broad headset and earpiece support are just a few of the important end user requirements that have been incorporated in this new sleek PoC audio accessory. Read more to find out how this new product can bring efficiency to your operations.
You’ve spent many hours researching, selecting, negotiating, testing and purchasing not only the right mobile devices (tablet, smart phone, ruggedized phone) and PoC app, but also the right accessories (headsets, remote speaker microphones, PTTs) for your truck fleet and drivers. You can breathe a sigh of relief, right?
Wrong. Now the “real” work of deployment begins.
The integration and installation of the essential PoC (Push-to-talk over Cellular) elements (device, app, accessories) is the final critical step for actualizing the benefits of improving team communications while also saving costs.
Two-way radios (Land Mobile Radio (LMR)) have been the mainstay of mobile team communications for many years. And for good reason: They’re robust, fault tolerant during emergencies, and most importantly, reliably enable one person at a time to speak to one or more listeners simultaneously.
With the rapid development of LTE (Long-Term Evolution) high-speed wireless communications for mobile devices, we now have new options for mobile teams that take advantage of commercial networks. Similar to PTT, Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) utilizes these commercial LTE wireless networks for communications.
There's no doubt that Push-to-talk Over Cellular (PoC) is more efficient and affordable than traditional two-way radios. Adoption rates are on the rise with the rapid development of cell phones and cellular networks, along with the development of Push-to-Talk (PTT) applications that allow companies to turn their mobile phones into two-way radios.
Designed specifically for the needs of truck drivers, the Savox Promate mobileRSM® works with tablets, smartphones and push-to-talk apps to deliver reliable, cost-effective fleet management

A field test of push to touch over cellular (PoC) during 6 hours of skiing in Whistler, British Columbia
Thirty-seven centimeters (37cm or 15 inches) of fresh, fresh snow overnight in Whistler BC, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, was a good enticement for us to make the decision to meet up with our friends for a Sunday snowboarding trip.
Whistler/Blackcomb is a huge ski area, and it’s easy to get separated from your friends and really difficult to find each other again. Knowing that, I set up an ESChat account for me and my friends so we could communicate with each other on the ski hill. ESChat is a PTT (push-to-talk) app from SLA Corporation, “the leader in public safety push to talk” that turns your mobile phone into a two-way radio. While some might think this might have been a little overkill for a day of snowboarding, I wanted to try out the Savox Promate RSM 30 radio accessory- especially the GPS functionality – as knowing the locations of your friends is a big bonus.
