Norwegian Cycling Federation selects Swedish GroupTalk for Push to Talk
Swedish GroupTalk has signed an agreement with the Norwegian Cycling Federation (NCF) to provide its smartphone based Push-to-Talk service. This new agreement gives NCF the opportunity to provide a cost efficient PTT communications solution to all its member clubs in Norway.
Per Erik Mæhlum, event manager at NCF is very satisfied with the new solution that is very cost efficient, but also easy to use, quick and reliable in comparison to the previous two-way-radio solutions.
– Walkie-talkies are commonly used within the the cycle sport to communicate with teams. The GroupTalk solution provides us with the ability to connect all volunteers directly to the teams. It is easy to use, scalable and powerful. I believe this is the future of radio communications, he says.
The Push-to-Talk (PTT) solution from GroupTalk Sweden AB allows communication using standard smartphones which improves and simplifies the communication in a cost efficient manner.
– With nine years of experience from special customers, we are now ready to present the solution more widely in the European market. I believe that NCF is an outstanding partner to do this with for the cycle sport. This is a market segment with very demanding radio users.
