For many retailers and leisure facilities that have a big team of staff, communication is key to a smooth operation. Choosing the right tech to make it easier for your people on the ground to serve customers efficiently is a pretty important factor. One of the solutions that we offer our customers is VoCoVo, a reliable and more intuitive radio communication solutions that’s a step up from traditional walkie talkies and streamlines the need for multiple devices.

5 facts about VoCoVo headsets:

1. Two-way communication

All VoCoVo headsets are fitted with full-duplex technology. Put simply, this means that the audio flows in both directions. You can speak and listen at the same time, just as you would during a face-to-face conversation. This clearer communication has a number of benefits:

  • Colleagues don’t have to waste time repeating themselves because a message has not been heard.  
  • Communication feels more natural, meaning that newer colleagues will be less nervous about asking for help.
  • On-the-job training sessions have a more conversational feel. Colleagues can chime in with questions without worrying about disrupting the session.  

2. Long battery life

VoCoVo have prioritised developing their headset to maximise the battery life and minimise the charge time. Each headset will run for up to 55 hours on a single charge, giving you peace of mind for your entire shift. 

Better still, it only takes three hours to fully charge a headset with handy wall-mounted charging docks. You can monitor the battery life of all devices via our online portal, giving you plenty of warning when a headset is running low.

3. Mute function

Everyone needs a break sometimes. Maybe you’re on your lunch and need to switch off for a while. Maybe you’re carrying out a task that requires your complete concentration, or having an in-depth conversation with a customer. 

Whatever the reason, the headsets can be muted with a single button press. The “smart mute” feature automatically provides the most appropriate type of muting for your situation. If you are in a conference, it will mute all messages. If you are having a one on one conversation, it will only mute your own microphone. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to unmute. A message will play periodically to remind you.

4. Lightweight and comfortable

These headsets are designed to be worn all day long. Whether you’ve been working for ten minutes or ten hours, maximum comfort is guaranteed:

  • A total weight of 28g means that there’s no danger of neck strain
  • Lightweight materials and padded earpieces 
  • Three ergonomic wearing styles - choose from a headband, an earhook or a neckband according to your preference

5. Up to 1000 headsets with no interference

Unlike many other alternatives, VoCoVo can accommodate up to 1,000 devices in a single conference. That should be plenty for even the most mega of megastores. 

No matter how many devices are operating, VoCoVo provides a crystal clear signal at all times. This is because the base units are synchronised, meaning that they work together to share the radio spectrum. This allows you to talk freely without the cracks and whistles that plague traditional walkie talkies. As you move around the store, the signal transfers seamlessly between base units so you’ll never hit a dead spot.
