What Freedom of Integration Means for You

Avtec Scout Consoles

Your dispatch communications consoles sit at the core of your organization’s communications, helping connect people to the resources they need. There are many factors that play into the selection of such a system, and your existing applications and tools should never disqualify the right dispatch communications system.

That’s why, at Avtec, we designed our Scout Enterprise platform with a single-source code that enables seamless integration of leading third-party technologies. In other words, you have freedom—the freedom to connect any of your chosen communications solutions, including conventional and trunked radios, push-to-talk over cellular, SIP and analog telephony, logging recorders and more. This freedom not only simplifies your upgrade and migration strategies but also protects your previous investments.
