Keep Up with the Market. And Keep Costs Down.
You're on a challenging pace in manufacturing. With stiffer competition, tighter schedules, longer shifts and heightened emphasis on safety, today's marketplace calls for even greater efficiency and productivity to maintain an advantage, globally and locally.
In order to keep up and keep ahead, your workers need reliable, easy-to-use communications so you can increase their efficiency and productivity, improve plant safety, support long work shifts and rapidly respond to incidents, wherever they happen.
Whether you run a global network of warehouses or a collection of local plants, reliable communications throughout your entire footprint is vital for successful operations.
Your workers need to connect clearly and without interruption – no matter where they are located or how loud their environment is.
Manufacturers need to:
- Ensure messages are received and understood by personnel
- Connect workers without interruptions or distractions
- Improve safety and task efficiency
- Speed response to changing plant conditions or incidents
Versatile and powerful, MOTOTRBO is the ideal solution.
Motorola's professional digital communication system combines the best of two-way radio functionality with the latest digital technology. It integrates voice and data seamlessly, offers enhanced features that are easy to use and delivers twice the capacity of analog systems to meet your growing communication needs. With exceptional voice quality and long battery life, MOTOTRBO keeps your workforce connected when communication is a must.
Motorola's MOTOTRBO SL Series, XPR™ 7000 and XPR 3000 Series radios offer a smart feature in digital mode – Intelligent Audio – that adjusts radio volume to fit an environment's noise level. This means the radio automatically boosts the volume level when the supervisor is on the factory floor, then automatically reduces the volume when he moves into a quiet office area.
Empower Your Employees with the Power of Digital Technology
Whether your employees are working the line or walking the factory floor, with MOTOTRBO digital two-way radios and accessories you can communicate clearly and conveniently. If an emergency or accident happens, you can locate the closest personnel and dispatch them for immediate response. And if you want to determine if deliveries are on time and sent to the correct locations, you can coordinate your fleet with exceptional productivity and proficiency.
MOTOTRBO applications offer improved safety, accountability and productivity in a manufacturing environment. Work Ticket Management applications allow you to connect directly to your machines, automatically dispatching the right technician in response to failures. Technicians can also use their radios to send commands to equipment directly: opening gates, turning on lights and starting machines. Job ticketing gives you productivity and accountability improvements: using text-based dispatch reduces errors and allows timely escalation.
Giving you centralized control of your workforce, these applications offer customizable user interfaces to allow your dispatcher to coordinate your staff efficiently and effectively. They also enhance business connectivity by allowing telephony interconnections and multi-system patching.
Work Tickect Management
These applications enhance efficiency and accountability in the workplace using text-based issue management software. They can be integrated with your existing work-order management solution or can be operated as an independent system.
Increase the safety and accountability of your staff by deploying these applications. Features such as Man Down and Lone Worker can be linked to indoor and outdoor location services for maximum effectiveness.
WAVE Workgroup Communications
Smartphone Application for Broadband Push-To-Talk (PTT) Capability
Communication amongst and between groups of people is a critical part of the day-to-day operations of any organization. For some organizations, mission critical communications are inherent to the organization’s mission. This is true of organizations ranging from the military to workers on an oil rig where efficient communication can be the difference between success and failure – and between life and death.
Unfortunately, effective seamless communication is not easily solved when different people with different communications devices on different networks, in different roles, need to be connected.
The WAVE Work Group Communications solution is a software platform and suite of applications that remove the technical barriers to secure instant communication across any IP network. WAVE’s resiliency has been tested in some of the world’s most difficult environments including battlefields, mines and the aftermath of natural disasters.
The following paper describes how WAVE creates the infrastructure required for software-based mission-critical communications. The paper provides an overview of the basic components and technologies that make up WAVE’s core platform and the suite of end-user applications.
Digital Radios vs Cell Phones
Where Cell Phones Fall Short, Digital Radios Keep You Going.

The Power of Your Radio Unleashed
MOTOTRBO radios are already best in class, but to help you work at your best, you need enhancements targeted to your specific workplace. Motorola has developed a line of accessories with unique features designed to optimize the performance of your radio in your work environment, unleashing the full power of the industry's most advanced digital radio platform.
Transmit and receive discreetly with a variety of earpieces that feature a streamlined design and rugged cables that withstand tough conditions. With inline push-to-talk and microphones, they're easy to use on the go. Our flexible array of surveillance kits includes two-wire kits (one wire for receiving, one wire for transmitting) and more discreet three-wire kits (separate wires for transmitting, receiving and push-to-talk).
Protect hearing and facilitate communications in noisy environments. Select from a wide range of comfortable, durable, lightweight to heavyweight headsets with noise-canceling boom microphones and in-line push-to-talk. Temple transducer headsets rest on your temple to convert audio into sound vibration and transmit it to your inner ear. You hear your radio and sounds in the surrounding environment; since the transducer sits in front of your ears, you can also wear earplugs.
Bluetooth® Wireless for Portable and Mobile Radios
Unleash the power of your MOTOTRBO radio without wires getting in the way. Motorola's extensive suite of Bluetooth accessories free you to take the radio off your belt, leave your truck or step away from your desk (up to 30 feet away) and stay connected. Choose from covert earpieces, heavy duty wireless headsets and Operations Critical Wireless solutions that let you move without constraints around the workplace.
Batteries and Chargers
MOTOTRBO batteries are developed, tested and certified for optimal performance with your MOTOTRBO radios and they outperform other brands of batteries. Reduce the number of spare batteries you buy with IMPRES™ batteries. IMPRES batteries can be charged 150 additional times versus a standard battery – a 43% increase in charge cycles. Choose from single-unit, multi-unit, travel and in-vehicle chargers and be confident your radio is ready when you need it. Get the most out of every battery and eliminate the surprise of "low battery alerts" with IMPRES chargers.
Remote Speaker Microphones
Communicate clearly in loud workplaces. Remote speaker microphones (RSM) have exclusive audio features for windy outdoor environments (windporting) and noisy environments (noise-canceling). IMPRES audio ensures your voice is heard clearer and louder regardless of how you speak into the accessory. The INC RSM suppresses extreme noise (high decibel equipment, heavy machinery) so you can be heard above all.
Mobile Radio Microphones
Choose microphones designed to keep workers safely connected on the move. Keypad microphones let you easily navigate menus on your radios, dial phone numbers and send text messages. The heavy-duty microphone is easy to use while wearing gloves and the telephone-style handset is ideal for discreet communication.
Carrying cases are available in sizes designed to fit your radio and battery and permit audio to be heard clearly. Our carry accessories keep your hands free, so you can concentrate on the task at hand. Choose from a wide range of nylon cases, leather cases, straps, holsters and clips, all designed to keep your radio protected, yet still easy to access.
Installation and Mounting Kits
Mount your radio on a desk or in your vehicle without compromising safety. Mounting kits give you the flexibility to mount the radio under or in your dashboard, between seats or on the floor. Remote mount kits allow you to mount the radio in the truck when dash space is limited.
