Nimans is shouting about the benefits of Personal Mobile Radios (PMR) which deliver cost-free communication – as the distributor urges resellers not to neglect this potentially lucrative area of the market.
“There’s a lot of current emphasis on Unified Comms and smartphones but nothing can compete with PMR’s for the cheapest way to communicate wirelessly,” says Gary Redshaw from Nimans’ Purchasing team. “Apart from the initial purchase the only other expenditure is charging the batteries.”
Gary says PMR’s are licence-free and provide a very attractive solution for cash-conscious businesses in these current uncertain economic times. Nimans work with many leading brands such as Kenwood, Motorola, Doro, Icom and Cobra – and thanks to continued advances in technology, some devices can operate over 10km depending on conditions.
“PMR’s have tended to drift off the radar a little bit in recent times as they have been overtaken by other forms of communication. But their unbeatable value and virtually non existent running costs is something all resellers should be embracing in their kit bags.”
Kenwood’s latest PMR446 UHF FM portable radio – The ProTalk TK-3301, for example combines high performance with a robust design. With its compact dimensions and lightweight chassis, this tough little transceiver is easy to carry and operate. It keeps on going for as long as 20 hours per charge and boasts ‘industrial strength’ construction to US MIL-STD specification.
Gary added: “PMR’s are ideally suited to a host of sprawling sites, from industrial premises to car showrooms, sports stadiums and concert venues. They remain one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to communicate over short as well as potentially long distances, with RRP’s starting from £25. They are very simple to set-up, maintain and operate – with an abundance of operating uses.”
