Why Tactilon Dabat?

With Tactilon Dabat and its broadband capabilities, traditional PMR users can enter a new era of working faster, better and more securely.

Why one device, why not two?

You might think that carrying both a radio and a smartphone is good because one could be used as a backup for the other. But there are drawbacks:

  • Two devices means you have to keep them both charged and in working order.
  • Two devices weigh more than one.
  • Information cannot move easily or securely between the radio and a separate smartphone.
  • Two devices also means two separate earphones - where’s your third ear for listening to your customers?  
  • And what if there’s a call on both devices at the same time? Which one will you respond to first?

One device that is better than two

Tactilon Dabat eliminates the drawbacks of carrying two devices. It combines the functions of a mission-critical radio and a smartphone into a single device.

How to bring Tactilon Dabat into use?

Adopting smart devices for non-critical purposes is a more straightforward process, but what about adopting smartphones into critical operation?

Take note of the 7 topics in "The first things you need to know about adopting mission-critical smartphones and apps" blog post. It is your first, easy step on your journey from traditional radio communication to complementary and mission-critical broadband.
