Event Recap: TNZ Dealer Summit 2017

This month, the Tait NZ team held their annual summit for the national dealer network in Queenstown, New Zealand. More than 80 attendees representing dealers from all over the country, staff from Tait Communications and Logic Wireless, as well as a handful of Tait Technology Partners, gathered in the beautiful adventure capital.

Senior Design Engineers Jeremy Campbell and Daniel Hughes presented live demonstrations of features like WiFi Over the Air Programming (OTAP) on Enable Fleet, geofencing on mobile radios, and a Satellite Worker Safety solution.

With the Worker Safety solution, a user can send an emergency message via satellite, providing a reliable way to signal for help outside of LMR or cellular coverage. Jeremy also demonstrated our geofencing capabilities, which generated a lot of discussion, ideas and excitement from the dealers present. Use cases include enabling Lone Worker based on location (for security) and status updates based on location (for worker safety). Similarly, the dealers were excited by the potential of EnableFleet, which gives users total visibility and management of their radio fleet from a central point of control.

Next door, John Graham showed off the Tait UnifiedVehicle App Builder’s easy to use ‘sandbox’ interface and powerful capabilities on the big screen.

The event ended with a Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony, where top performing dealers were recognized for their achievements and all attendees enjoyed a keynote presentation from entrepreneur and business consultant Hamish Nuttall.
