Motorola CLP1040 45 day trialWhile this Two-Way Radio was designed for the retail, hospitality, and restaurant environments, this ultra-compact, business-class two-way radio could be used in many applications. The MT1017 redefines traditional two-way radio form by including only the essential elements needed by your team to provide better customer service, create better shopping experiences, reach higher levels of productivity, reduce errors, or simply to provide lightning-fast communication between team members.

  • Comfort - more flexible ways to wear the radio comfortably (including a unique magnetic clothing mount to attach the radio anywhere such as on a lapel, anywhere on a shirt, apron, or uniform, etc.)
  • Performance - clear, strong audio performance to breakthrough the noise common in retail stores, noisy kitchens, and other loud environments
  • Image - sleek yet durable styling that promotes the profile and image of your business.
  • Durable - Meets military specification standards for shock, vibration, low/high temperature and solar radiation. The MT1017 stands up to the everyday wear and tear of your fast-paced business.

  • Easy to Use - one large button for easy push-to-talk operation without having to look at the radio. New Smart Status Glow feature provides visual cues for at-a-glance status information.

With increased productivity of employees, the MT1017 could pay for itself in reduce staffing costs. Or it could pay for itself with the increased customer service level achieved since employees can communicate with other team members without ever leaving customers unattended. Either way you win.

5 of 5 You'll hardly know it's there January 19, 2012
Reviewer: Tim @ IntercomsOnline.com from Nashville, TN  
If you're looking for the smallest, and lightest two way radio we recommend this one. One of the downsides of two way radios is that you actually have to wear them before they'll be useful. The big and bulky radios may get set down and never picked up. This one is so small and light you'll barely know it's there.
