The new Kenwood Dispatch Software was developed especially for the customers who require 21st century technology to manage their fleets but due to high overheads and ongoings do not require software and hardware that is in some cases three times the cost.
Kenwood's FleetDispatch (DMS) software is designed for simplified messaging and PTT ID dispatch capabilities for desktop base station computers connected to Kenwood 80-Series base/control station mobiles.
FleetDispatch sends, receives and logs all FleetSync PTT ID, selective calling, status messaging and short/long text messages for the dispatcher. It supports all 4000 FleetSync IDs and operates simply via the Windows display, mouse or keyboard controls. FleetDispatch is Windows 98/Me/NT/200/XP compatible.
It is compatible with any 80-Series base mobile and will communicate FleetSync with Kenwood's 80-Series portables and mobiles or any mobile with a Kenwood KDS-100 FleetSync mobile data terminal.
With the in-built Fleetsync technology coming standard in the Kenwood 80 Series mobiles and portables, this presents itself as the perfect solution to those customers with tighter budgets who require dispatch software that can accommodate their current fleet and can easily grow as they become more successful.
Kenwood's FleetSync Digital Messaging & Signaling is a cost-effective fleet management tool, suitable for operations using private or subscriber-based two-way services. FleetSync offers digital fleet unit identification, selective calling, status messaging and text messaging for dispatch operations. And Kenwood's KDS-100 FleetSync Data Terminal expands the FleetSync display, memory and operational capabilities of 80-Series mobile radios.
The software is simple to use, extremely flexible and requires minimal training - if you can use a computer, you can operate this.
User-friendly features of the software include:
- Operators can send and receive short status messages or long free-form messages (up to 48 characters standard, maximum 4096 with PC/MDT ).
- Drop and drag messages to users and fleets.
- Stun and revive radios over the air.
- View operators' reports filtered by selected fleet/user.
- All messages are date and time stamped with user type and message then logged and archived.
- The logs can be printed, emailed and transferred to a location of choice on the user's hard drive or disks.
- Emergency notification.
So why all the secrecy?
Lindsay Nolland, Sales and Marketing Manager at Kenwood, has let us in on the reason.
"It's simple really - we wanted to release this with the GPS Option, which is being field tested as we speak but it has become popular in its current form and left us with no choice."
So now this won't be a secret!
