BadgePing, a wearable walkie talkie that pairs with a smartphone, hopes to provide a enterprise grade solution for companies who wants their field employees to communicate and collaborate better with instant voice communication.
Singapore - Feb 28th — Smartphone walkie-talkie apps have been around for several years without matching up to the expectations of enterprise users.
Voice notes on WhatsApp and WeChat have been growing in popularity since the feature was released in 2013. Users have found the feature to be a much safer and convenient method to communicate especially when they are on the go. This method of communication, dubbed Push-to-Talk, is not new. Enterprise users in Singapore who have been using nationwide walkie talkie service since it was available in the early 2000s.
However companies in Singapore have not made the switch to smartphones because one key downside among others in using smartphones as walkie talkies is the lack of good speakers on the smartphone.
“Most smartphones are in the 60db-80db range which means you can only hear your message if you hold the phone next to your ear or you are in a quiet indoor environment. However for professional outdoor use, workers need 100db loudness to ensure that they hear the messages.” - Smart Walkie Industry Insights
This is where Smart Walkie believes their wearable device, BadgePing, can overcome the hardware limitations of smartphones. BadgePing provides a 3-watt speaker that can go beyond 100db (equivalent to using a Hand Drill). BadgePing also has a PTT (Push-to-Talk) and channel change buttons that enables quick access without needing to reach for the phone.
“We wanted a wearable system that is unobstructive to work. Workers can wear BadgePing on their shirt or on their lanyard.” states Smart Walkie’s CEO, Zhou Wenhan, “Push to talk is an effective way to be connected to field workers but the devices that workers have might not be suitable until now. With BadgePing, companies, even those not using Walkie Talkies now, can be connected to field workers via instant voice”
The Singapore based company company believes that BadgePing’s wearability and cost-effectiveness can will prompt many companies to upgrade and even expand the base beyond the current logistics and hospitality industry. Working together with Singtel in Singapore, BadgePing offers companies a package which is inclusive of service plan, smartphone and BadgePing to get companies started quickly.
BadgePing is available for public viewing at Last Mile Fulfilment Asia 2016 at Singapore Expo on March 3rd and March 4th 2016. A trial can also be requested on BadgePing’s website.
