EDUCATION COMMUNICATION SOLUTIONS

Enhance School Safe Communication and the Security of Students and Staff, Earn High Marks for Schoolwide Safety

Communications Electronics knows that educational institutions from K-12 to higher education are looking for ways to provide reliable communication to their students. Parents want to know they are sending their children to a safe and secure learning environment. Teachers, coaches, bus drivers, and security personnel want to more effectively oversee assemblies, sporting events, and other school activities while maintenance staff want to more efficiently manage day to day activities. And administrators want to ensure a rapid, coordinated response to any situation using technology that is within their budgets.

Get instant communications and current information when you need it. Communications Electronics helps increase security with next generation solutions like SchoolSAFE that bridge communications between the public safety network and schools.

THE CHALLENGE

How can you keep students safer in the classroom, on the school bus, and at after-school events? Do you want to unify your staff easily and seamlessly, working around the district or across campus? How will you keep parents and your community in the loop? Two-way digital radio communication is the answer. It keeps staff connected, students secure, and administrators, parents, and the public confident throughout the school day. Institutions are upgrading to smarter solutions, such as GPS location tracking to monitor buses, manage routes, and enable parents to log in and see where students are. They’re implementing safer solutions for their staff, too – from emergency alarms that activate voice communication to hands-free accessories so drivers can communicate responsibly while operating the bus.

THE SOLUTION

Versatile and powerful, MOTOTRBO combines the best of two-way radio functionality with expanded capabilities to meet your communication needs. MOTOTRBO integrates voice and data seamlessly, offers enhanced features that are easy to use, and delivers safety-focused advantages like integrated Bluetooth®, GPS location tracking and Intelligent Audio that automatically adjusts volume to address background noise. Only MOTOTRBO lets you choose the right device for the right user – such as the remarkably scalable XPR™3500 portable, the XPR 5500 mobile for unrivaled voice and data communication, and the ultra-thin, ultra-light SL 7550 portable. Remaster your institution and the way people collaborate to help achieve greater safety standards and celebrate cost-savings.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread in the United States and across the globe, we want to let everyone know that Communications Electronics’number one priority is to keep our employees, partners, and customers safe. Here is an update on preparations and steps we have taken to date. Two weeks ago, CE assembled a cross-disciplinary COVID-19 Management Team to actively monitor the situation and make recommendations to leadership. We have been assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local authorities. We’ve assembled guidance for our employee teams, pursuant to these recommendations.

As you know, the situation is evolving rapidly, and COVID-19 is affecting people differently, depending on their location and situation. As a result, flexible solutions are needed. CE Senior Management is considering all options, including the possibility of asking staff to work remotely.

While we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff and those around us, we also remain committed to serving our customers. Fortunately, we have technology in place and significant experience with working remotely. We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can continue to deliver uninterrupted, high quality service. Operational teams have been working to identify potential needs and strategies associated with full-virtual delivery of services. Project managers and supervisors are actively having preparedness discussions with our teams. Our IT team has been reviewing and testing systems and protocols, to ensure necessary tools and support for staff to operate virtually. Everyone has a role to play.

If you have questions or feedback, you can reach the COVID-19 Management Team at Safety@Talkcei.com.

Being flexible and able to overcome big challenges is part of what makes us who we are. We have the infrastructure, skills, and desire to support each other, while providing the highest level of service to our customers. Obviously, this is a fast moving, fluid situation affecting our country and the world. We will update our guidance and decisions as the situation changes. Please continue to monitor the CDC Website for updates.

We hope that you and your family are well,
