DispatchPlus is a next-generation push-to-talk solution utilizing state-of-the-art digital two-way radio technology. The solution is integrated with pdvWireless’ proprietary cloud-based mobile resource management solutions including workforce tracking, status mapping and the Company’s patented intelligent call prioritization. DispatchPlus enables communications to be sent simultaneously to one or many recipients, whether the recipient is on pdvWireless’ two-way service, a cellphone or at any email address.
“We are excited to be bringing DispatchPlus to the Houston market and are pleased to report that testing of the network has exceeded our expectations in terms of performance and coverage. Further, for one low monthly price, our service includes not only wide-area push-to-talk but also our cloud-based business solutions.

Pescatore, Chief Executive Officer of pdvWireless. “By combining high quality, unlimited access to push-to-talk with DispatchPlus’ features and ease of use, customers can achieve substantial benefits and cost-savings, such as increased operational efficiencies and improved productivity.”
