DecisionPoint Announces Grapevine™ Push-to-Talk Certification on Panasonic Toughbook® U1
Foothill Ranch, CA — November 14, 2011 – DecisionPoint Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: DPSI), a leading provider of field-based workforce automation solutions, today announced that Grapevine Push-to-Talk, DecisionPoint’s cloud-based Push-to-Talk software, is now certified on the Panasonic Toughbook U1 ultra mobile rugged PC. Grapevine Push-to-Talk is a worldwide communication system that is “always on,” enabling instant voice communication over a range of mobile devices and PCs.
The Panasonic Toughbook U1 is a cross between a tablet form factor and a handheld form factor and is ideal for mobile workforces that require a device that can withstand all-day use in demanding environments. The Grapevine Push-to-Talk certification on the Panasonic Toughbook U1 adds to the already extensive list of certified devices approved for use with this solution and fulfills the needs of customers requiring instant communications from a tablet that was previously unavailable.
Grapevine Push-to-Talk provides instant communications over the Internet and works across wireless carrier and Wi-Fi networks with no delays in voice delivery. It keeps workforces connected no matter how widely dispersed, enabling users to improve their communications while reducing costs.
Grapevine Push-to-Talk is a cloud-based, worry-free Software as a Service (SaaS) product. There are no servers to set up and maintain. Grapevine Push-to-Talk is ideal for immediate communications between dispatch and field workers, is highly scalable and supports communication among thousands of individuals and group participants. Key features include high-quality voice with audio alerts plus a private and secure network with voice encryption and sub-second transmission.
“Customers can now access the closed loop communication network from a tablet, which is another testament to the flexibility of Grapevine Push-to-Talk,” said Brent Felker, VP Field Mobility Solutions for DecisionPoint Systems. “The Panasonic Toughbook U1 has a keyboard and screen that is significantly larger than a traditional handheld yet can be easily held in one hand by a field worker. Voice communication on larger platforms such as this has, before this, been impossible. Because Grapevine Push-to-Talk provides voice over the data network, the functionality of the device is significantly increased.”
