Companies need to consider a paging system. In today’s world of rapid-fire technology, companies often depend on mobile devices and communications to deliver internal messages quickly. It is easy and fast to send a group text to communicate message like, “There’s cake in the break room for Holly’s birthday.” If you miss it, no big deal – You can grab a piece later. However, business owners and managers need to ask themselves: What if it were something more urgent? Risk managers know that limiting liability often involves preparing for the worst, and hoping it never happens. Intercom systems are a powerful security tool in those cases.
Imagine example a retail store filled with hundreds of shoppers around the holidays. You can use your intercom or paging system to play festive music for the shoppers. Clerks can call for a manager when stationed at the cash register. All daily operations under control – until a child is found crying for his lost mother. The child knows his mom’s phone number, but she doesn’t answer. When your staff uses the paging system to call for the mother, they see a relieved mom rushing up moments later. That is the power of the paging system. Any alert that needs to go out to all occupants of space is received by listeners.
