Working in forestry is widely considered one of the most dangerous occupations in the world, with potential hazards around every corner. Workers must deal with heavy falling tree logs that a prone to rolling and sliding in tough weather conditions. On top of the sliding logs the heavy machinery and loud atmosphere make it difficult to stay connected between workers, isolating individuals and causing serious safety risks.

Industrial One’s partner’s uniquely built rugged smartphones can alleviate all your communication issues, giving constant and reliable wireless communication to all your forestry team members in a compact ultra durable device.

Ruggedness at it’s best

Industrial One’s devices all carry the same standards in durability. Runbo, AGM and Conquest rugged smartphones are waterproof, dustproof, shock resistant, temperature resistant, chemical resistant and are even capable or surviving a 1-2 meters fall. Conditions in the forestry industry will be no match for the ultra rugged, military grade level of durability that our devices provide.

Instant and constant communication with POC and PTT

The PTT(push-to-talk) and POC (push-to-cellular) features on Runbo rugged smartphones allow team members to stay connected with just the press of a button, outperforming two-way radios in every way.

PTT enables instant group coordination between loaders, and choppers as well as site managers keeping operations running smoothly and efficiently. With the POC feature your team can stay in contact with each other even when workers are at opposite ends of a huge forest, unlike two way radios which generally operate only within a radius of a few kilometers. POC requires no licenses and is simple to configure.

Safety first

Runbo’s unique work-smart tools and apps can help keep workers safe and out of hazardous conditions. Remote areas associated with the forestry industry require extra care to ensure communication is possible at all times.

The SOS alarm is a programmable button that allows an analog signal to be sent out in times of distress. This feature allows forestry team members to remain in contact if wireless signals are down or even if there are no wireless signals in a certain remote area.

The man-down-alert is also a useful safety feature that can automatically report emergency accidents to co-workers or dispatchers when a worker is found to be not moving, ideal for detecting car accidents where drivers are knocked unconscious.

Efficiency, efficiency, efficiency

Industrial One understands that time is money and as such minutes lost can be thousands of dollars down the drain. To keep work running smoothly as well as enhance worker efficiency our partner “Runbo” has included certain performance enhancing feature in their rugged smartphones.

Runbo devices are equipped with NFC chips and antennas which have the potential to reduce the time it takes for Mill Managers to process lumber loads. Also, the Time Sheet Tracker and QR Scanner applications can be extremely helpful giving workers the added benefit of being able to manage their projects and keep record of your work as well as exchange information seamlessly without hassle.

All day power

One of the most important features of our Smartphones is the uber long battery life. Devices can provide 16-25 hours of talk time which can be extremely important for Forestry workers who spend long hours in the field.
