Sonetics Launches Wireless Made Easy Trade-Up Program to Provide Reliable Team Communications for Users of Legacy Wired Systems
Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Sonetics, the leader in rugged wireless team communication systems, today announced the Wireless Made Easy Trade-up Program for users of legacy wired headsets. The program offers credits up to $ 150 per wired headset redeemed towards the purchase of completely wireless Apex and Triton headsets providing a cost-effective transition to wireless benefits while upgrading from David Clark, Peltor, Piratecom, Avcom and other legacy systems.
Millions of headset users remain tethered to intercom systems, repeatedly repairing unreliable decades-old wired equipment at substantial ongoing cost. Other users continue to use old green-style headsets with cumbersome wires that plug into belt packs to become ?wireless.? All of these users are missing the benefits of next-generation Sonetics wireless systems with rugged hands-free wireless headsets that deliver DECT-based 1600 foot range, 26dB of hearing protection, outstanding comfort and secure full-duplex team communication with optional push-to-talk two-way radio integration.
Beyond ongoing repair costs, many current headset users are failing to meet new requirements such as OSHA 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC regulations on crane operations that mandate hands-free communication over dedicated channels between crane operators and co-workers. Unlike two-way radio solutions, Sonetics wireless systems directly address this requirement. The combination of the long range, hearing protection, continuous conversation and the freedom to apply both hands to work delivers improvements in safety and productivity while Wireless Made Easy assists the transition to compliance.
?We are making it very easy for users of old legacy wired headsets to enhance their team effectiveness and individual freedom of movement by trading up to proven Sonetics wireless headsets and systems,? said Sonetics Chief Operating Officer, Reed Stager. ?This trade-up program values customers? existing investment in communication systems while helping them benefit from the latest technology. In many cases, customers will recoup a credit for more than half of what they originally paid for a wired headset ? even if they purchased it a decade ago.?
With their exceptional 1600 foot line-of-sight range, DECT-based Sonetics systems deliver nearly 30 times the coverage area of conventional Bluetooth systems. Headsets are fully wireless, with no external antennas, cables, or belt packs to snag or tangle. An extended-life battery keeps each headset operating continuously for 24 hours on a two-hour charge. Sonetics headsets maintain excellent water and dust resistance and they operate under harsh worksite conditions from -40
SunGard Study Finds Risk, Bank Communications and Payments Consolidation Are Priorities for Corporate Treasurers
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
SunGard conducted a study with 100 treasury professionals at the 2011 AFP Annual conference in Boston, which revealed that thirty-one percent identified gaining a holistic view of risk as the top priority for corporate treasurers. Twenty-seven percent believed that streamlining bank communications was the highest priority, while twenty-one percent felt that consolidating payment flows was most significant.
SunGard has observed a transformation in treasury as the role of treasury professionals expand beyond cash management to these key areas. To help address these complex activities, SunGard provides technology that helps corporations manage risk, bank communications and payments for improved liquidity management.
Craig Martin, executive director of AFP?s Corporate Treasurers Council, said, ?As was highlighted in our ?Strategic Role of Treasury? survey released at our annual conference, we have seen the role of the corporate treasurer transform over the past few years and become more strategic due to the global economy, the regulatory environment, and new innovations in technology. Corporate treasurers are responsible for protecting the liquidity and managing the risk across the organization, putting them in a position to impact their company?s ability to remain competitive and grow. With the right tools in place, corporate treasurers are able to be strategic and accurately forecast their cash, understand their risk exposures, and help increase their company?s liquidity.?
Paul Bramwell, senior vice president, treasury solutions, at SunGard?s AvantGard business unit, said, ?Best-practice organizations are implementing treasury technology to help corporate treasurers better determine and manage their financial risk. Corporate treasurers are also looking for more services to be delivered through the bank communication channel including electronic bank account management (eBAM). In order to help meet this requirement, SWIFT has selected SunGard for its eBAM Central Utility Pilot to help corporations achieve straight-through-processing of eBAM messages. With bank connectivity streamlined, corporations are now also looking internally to payment initiation systems and greater demand for standards and integration with treasury and bank systems.?
