RG Abrey Farms choose MOTOTRBO™ Wide Area Solution for Lone Workers
RG Abrey Farms fresh produce sites are located in the heart of the Brecklands. With an Annual production in excess of 100,000 tonnes of root vegetables, supplied directly to major multiples, packers, wholesale and processing outlets, together with other arable crops which complement the rotation their sites are a constant hive of activity.
With two sites set 14km apart the team needed a solution that could connect both estates together, Wretham covers almost 6000 acres and Euston Estate 10,500-acres, with over 50 full-time and additional seasonal employees the Estates Management team needed to ensure they were adhering to stringent Health and Safety laws.
Their Analogue Solution had been declining for some time, and the environment it had been put in it could not withstand the impact of day to day working life on the farms with users experiencing unreliable coverage in varying terrains and buildings.
Farming life is busy, and with tight schedules, they needed to utilise a communication system that could increase safety, efficiency, productivity and cope with the long working hours.
PROTECTING LONE WORKERS
MOTOTRBO™ IP Site Connect removed all the issues other technologies put in their way such as physical barriers, manual intervention for roaming, limited coverage or lost functionality. And then there was the bonus of no monthly service or access fees to factor in.
The team chose MOTOTRBO™ DM4400 & DM4600 Mobiles for the tractors and other farm machinery along with the IP57 Rated MOTOTRBO™ DP4800 Hand portables for the Estates Team, all of which had emergency & lone worker functions programmed.
