One of the exciting advances in digital radio technology is the ability to track your work force and assets using your radio communications network.
By extending this technology to your dispatching solution, dispatchers can quickly and effectively manage your teams.
However, integrating maps into a Dispatch Solution is fraught with hidden licensing costs and conditions. Omnitronics makes this easy for you by offering a range of options to suit your unique needs:

- Advanced Location Services, Hosted: Includes Advanced Options such as Geofencing, custom alarms and route history. This is a subscription based service for organizations who don’t want to worry about managing their own mapping licenses and want a minimal capital outlay.
- Integration with Existing Maps: Omnitronics can also provide integration to your existing Location Services System using the Advanced Location Service. Contact our Sales Team for further details.
All of this is made possible through the use of digital radio gateways: the DRG’s convert data from multiple radio protocols and manufacturers to ensure compatibility and interoperability. This means you can combine the GPS data from several different radio sources onto the one map, simplifying dispatching operations and improving productivity & safety. For example at the control and command center for public safety, one organization’s P25 data can be displayed alongside another services DMR data. The dispatcher can see all location information from all vehicles and personnel regardless of what protocol is being used.
Many standards do not include specifications for the transmission of GPS data meaning each radio manufacturer has established their own propriety method. Omnitronics has partnered directly with many radio manufacturers to ensure compatibility with our Location Services solutions.
Omnitronics understands that each organization is unique and therefore has unique requirements for what and how GPS information is presented. As such the Advanced Location Services can be customized to suit these needs. Contact your local sales representative to discuss further.
