JOLIET, Ill., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Illinois School Bus has announced its official switch to the nation's largest digital two-way radio network, Diga-Talk®. To date, 191 Illinois School Bus school buses are now relying on Diga-Talk® to communicate and stay connected, with student safety at the forefront of their minds. Illinois School Bus is one of the 18 subsidiary school bus companies operated by Cook Illinois Corporation, the largest family-owned school bus contractor in the U.S. Each subsidiary of Cook Illinois Corporation shares the same mission: "To transport the youth of today in a safe, efficient and friendly environment."
Diga-Talk® is a state-of-the art two-way radio network solely powered by digital technology. With digital network coverage spanning much of Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana, fleets from all industries are free to roam with clarity and without interference. Diga-Talk® offers subscribers private frequencies for secure and instant communication only to other programmed Diga-Talk® units within an organization. Diga-Talk® digital mobile radios offer safe, compliant and easy-to-use push to talk communication to make group calls to everyone in an enterprise or private one-on-one calls when necessary. It's no wonder Illinois School Bus prefers Diga-Talk®, as it keeps bus drivers focused on their mission of safety, and takes communications off cell phones where drivers become distracted.
Cook Illinois Corporation operates 2,100 school buses in total, including Illinois School Bus. Here's what John Benish Jr., Chief Operating Officer of Cook Illinois had to say about Diga-Talk®: "Diga-Talk® has been great for our business. I still have many radio systems using analog and I can actually compare the two side-by-side and Diga-Talk® is, by far, a superior system and we're very happy with it. It's so clear and easy to get a hold of somebody. When you're in a school bus or you're in a situation with bad weather or some type of accident, it's really important to get those finite details and be able to hear really clearly because sometimes those seconds make all the difference." Any organization with fleets traveling the greater Chicagoland area should look into switching to Diga-Talk® to increase driver safety, efficiency and productivity. Diga-Talk® will set you up with a free demo so you can experience the clarity firsthand before making the decision to switch.
Diga-Talk® began commercial service in 2009 and has grown rapidly since its inception. With digital network coverage in Illinois and Wisconsin from Springfield up to Green Bay, Northwest Indiana and everywhere in between, businesses with traveling fleets can roam confidently. Diga-Talk® is powered by Nexedge NXDN digital technology and equipment distributed by JVC Kenwood USA Corporation.
