The makers of DispatchPlus, our wide area network application for MotoTrbo radios, have been busy this quarter with some new features we’re pretty excited about, including private address book. The address book functionality allows private calls between MotoTrbo users and Motorola’s Wave Mobile Communicator.

pdvWireless developed DispatchPlus as a go-to work management solution for dispatch-driven mobile workforces: The wide area network application gives dispatchers real-time information on drivers’ current location, route and communications, enhancing the power of MotoTrbo radios.

The application’s existing features already have customers talking, including superior voice quality, private and group calls, and text messaging – all for less than the cost of a cellular plan. The chairman and vice chairman of pdvWireless are the co-founders of Nextel Communications, a legacy that gives customers confidence in the application’s effectiveness.

The new functionality promises more of the same, so let’s take a closer look.
