The Outdoor Customer Service Callbox provides a fast, and easy wireless method for customers to summon a sales associate to a specific department or store location. When a customer presses the button on the Callbox, it transmits user-recordable voice messages to two-way radios, wireless intercoms, or a wireless PA system. The Callbox enhances customer service and promotes productivity of sales associates, which increases store sales.

This Callbox solves one of the most costly problems retail store owners have. That is the loss of customers who gets frustrated when they can't find store personnel to ask questions. Frustrated customers generally leave without buying.
A recent National Retail Federation survey found "...in the previous six (6) months 62% of [all] respondents indicated...walking out of a store without making a planned purchase."Why? "...because they could not find a sales clerk to help." The Customer Callbox Service solves this costly problem.
To further enhance staff efficiency, when an employee arrives to help the customer, a hidden reset button is pushed on the Callbox to activate an "All Clear" voice message to other personnel - permitting them to assist other customers, or tend to other duties.
The Callbox is completely wireless, and battery powered, which makes it easy to install virtually anywhere without costly remodeling. There is no need for any external power, special wiring, expensive remodeling, airtime charges, or dedicated phone lines. Plus there's no disruption to operations since the Callbox is completely wireless and battery operated. It can be installed anywhere in literally minutes. What's more it can be relocated as needed in a flash.
