Woodchucks General Contractors Inc. has increased productivity by deploying cellular signal boosters in its vehicles, ensuring wireless connectivity in remote locations.
Although wireless carriers continue to build out their networks, there are still plenty of rural areas where a lack of towers and natural obstacles conspire to create dead zones. If you have remote employees in one of these cellular Bermuda Triangles, voice and data communication are cut off.
Nonexistent cell signal means that your workers can’t communicate, which in today’s world of real-time connectivity often means they can’t do what they need to do in the field. This is a frustrating problem for mobile workers and a costly issue for their employers.
