Mobile Tornado announces launch of world’s first push-to-talk over cellular platform with integrated workforce management technology

Mobile Tornado plc today announces the go-to-market launch of the world’s first push-to-talk over cellular (PTToC) platform with integrated workforce management technology.

The company’s established PTToC platform uses cellular and broadband networks to provide always-on instant communications for mission critical requirements in challenging environments. It has been deployed in more than 30 countries worldwide with mobile network operators, government agencies and enterprises in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.

The platform’s PTToC integration with workforce management technology gives organisations a single application to communicate with and manage remote and mobile operatives using a single device: either an Android or iOS smartphone or ruggedised handset. The solution increases safety, productivity and performance while cutting paperwork and total cost of ownership.

Developed in-house by MT Labs, the workforce management technology enables the digital transformation of multiple manual tasks and assignments and generates advanced business intelligence for the streamlining of operations and enhanced allocation of resources.

Luke Wilkinson, of Mobile Tornado, said: “The bringing together of our robust and reliable push-to-talk over cellular platform with the very latest in workforce management technology gives organisations everything they need to seamlessly communicate with and manage their team members using one application and one device, wherever they are in the world.

“This is a first for our global market and creates exciting growth opportunities for Mobile Tornado and our partners.”

Early adopters of the integrated platform include organisations in the UK, Europe and Caribbean in the security, facilities management and infrastructure sectors.

The workforce management technology offers tools including attendance and time monitoring, forms and checklists, reporting, scheduling and task creation. These are available via dispatch console, which allows organisations to manage teams from a control room.

The platform is capable of communicating instantly with up to 127 groups, with up to 1,000 individuals in each group.
