Overhead Paging Solutions for the Fast-Pace World


Your overhead paging system can be a valuable tool for helping your team members stay efficient on the job. There are also a handful of public safety benefits when you have the right solution in place. Understanding your options and working with a great telecommunications company will make it easy to get the best results from your investment.

When You Need to Get the Word Out Fast

In our personal lives, we tend to think that a text message is the fastest way to reach someone. But that isn’t often the case for our work environments. Turning to an overhead paging system lets you reach basically anyone and everyone inside your building, and even in areas outside. It's a highly effective form of communication for large organizations, school campuses, and busy work environments. You just need a system that’s customized for your property—and one that's easy to use.

Car dealerships rely on commercial paging solutions to share updates with staff, whether they're on the sales lot or in the backroom. Warehouse facilities or retail locations might use a paging solution to contact team members or managers who are constantly on the go.

Obviously hospitals depend on their overhead paging and mass notification systems to reach their doctors, but sometimes we forget about other service industries that use these solutions. Public safety teams like fire departments or government buildings need to get the word out fast. And schools use these systems daily for overhead announcements too.

The Different Types of Overhead Paging Systems

As a voice and data cabling solution, overhead paging systems actually come with quite a few “sub-categories.” Whether that’s background music at retail locations, an emergency alert system, or the standard paging speakers, organizations can use all types of overhead paging systems:

  • Indoor / Outdoor Paging Systems
  • Overhead Background Music
  • Ambient White Noise Censoring
  • Mass Notification / Emergency Paging
  • Paging Horns (ringers, alerts, warble), and more!

Of course, no matter what your reasoning might be for getting a new paging solution installed, having clear audio will be key. You don’t want to have someone’s voice sound distorted when they’re using the system. The entire point of these systems is to have a clear connection with people located all throughout a large area.

If the messages or alerts aren’t broadcasted correctly, that can have negative impacts on the customer experience. Just image the increase in their wait-time when you can't get ahold of the right person to help them. Listening to fuzzy audio or even a system that’s too loud can be equally frustrated. Worse, having a bad paging systems in an emergency setting can be extremely dangerous. Quality makes all the difference. That’s why our telecommunications team works hard to develop the best solution for your needs.
