SME Sector Gets Business Radio Boost From Hytera

SME Sector Gets Business Radio Boost From Hytera. With more than 710,000 small formal businesses in its fold, South Africa’s small and medium enterprise (SME) sector plays a critical role in boosting economic growth and creating employment opportunities in the country.

A 2023 Real Economy Bulletin by Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS) notes that small formal businesses directly generate a third of value added in South Africa. Operating in an environment characterised by tight financial conditions, SMEs in the country need all the help they can get to improve efficiencies and grow.

Within this milieu, where always-on communication is paramount, Hytera Communications, a leading global provider of professional communications technologies and solutions, introduced its new series of two-way radios to empower businesses with the tools they need to improve and streamline collaboration and communication, both onsite and nationwide. The launch took place at a three-day Southern Africa Dealer Conference 2024 held in Cape Town this month, marking a milestone in Hytera’s mission to continue developing business and mission-critical communications in Southern Africa.

Mark Zheng, Director of Hytera Southern Africa, says the S Series two-way radios -including the S1 mini, S1 and S1 Pro – are aimed at boosting on-site group communications and the P30 Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) radio, a lightweight LTE radio, enables instant group calls across the nation. “South Africa’s small to medium businesses require constant and effective communication to ensure efficient operations and productivity. This is where the newly launched S series two-way radio and P30 PoC radio provide the perfect solution for serving the diverse range of industries that are making their mark in the country.”

An important announcement at the conference was the major upgrade to the Hytera HyTalk PoC platform. This enhancement introduces a microservice software architecture, enabling quicker deployment of new features and improved system resilience. The new patrol function streamlines task management for field teams, further promising higher operational efficiency and staff safety for security companies.

“We recognise the immense potential for growth in the commercial sector of this region, despite the challenges faced in recent years. As a company deeply rooted in South Africa, we are delighted to introduce new products that will drive digitalisation and strengthen the competitiveness of the region,” adds Zheng.
