Description

With CCS Connect, users can press awalkie-talkie button on their Android devices to ask questionsabout safety issues, RFIs or design documents, while viewing thesituation or document in real-time.

CCS Connect is a mobile app with embedded push-to-talkmessaging. The set of people available to each user is controlledby the CCS Connect administrator and audit data is available toanalyze communication patterns over time, by user, by group and byproject.

Push-to-talk (PTT) is a communication style in which a userpresses a button to live-transmit to one or many people at once.These communications differ from typical VoIP or telephony in thatthe communication is instant because there is no call setup ortear-downs, (e.g. no dialing a number, ringing or voicemail).

More advanced push-to-talk systems also allow sets of targets tobe pre-configured or set up on the fly. For example, on aconstruction project involving 100 people, an administrator or usercan selectively target any combination of people, rather thanbroadcasting to everyone. In such cases, PTT becomes useful fordispatch-style communications or other use cases where theparticipants in the communication process are changing andfluid.

CCS Connect virtualizes the walkie-talkie in the same way we'veseen technology collapse physical devices such as GPS, camera, PDA,music players into smartphone-based software replacements.

CCS Connect uniquely combines real-time and asynchronousmessaging together. On the one hand, CCS Connect provides areal-time push-to-talk experience. On the other hand, the end usercan choose when to turn the virtual walkie-talkie feature ON orOFF. When ON, audio streams live. When OFF, audio is buffered onthe CCS Connect server, e.g their messages wait for them.

As soon as users turn their walkie-talkie back ON, any missedaudio can be re-streamed to them. This applies also to text,photos, videos, and any other raw data passed through CCS Connect.The ability to control the immediacy of the communicationstranslates into greater end user productivity and satisfaction. Thewalkie-talkie feature can be intrusive (and sometimes needs to be)but users may also need uninterrupted moments, and to have meetings(or lunch) without losing access to communications flow thatoccurred while they were away. The CCS Connect mobile app andservers work together to make sure a message is never missed andcan be received on demand when needed.
