How Roto-Rooter is Winning at Team Communication

Roto-Rooter is one of the most recognized service companies in the United States, delivering 24/7 services to nearly 90% of the country. With a steadfast focus on rapid response and fast service to customers, Roto-Rooter employs 1,500 service technicians who help residential and commercial customers with clogged sewers, sinks or drains, plumbing repair services and preventive maintenance programs. When customers are dealing with plumbing problems, they need help immediately. Efficient communication is a critical component to making sure customers are serviced quickly.

Alike many field services companies with a mobile and distributed workforce, Roto-Rooter relied on push-to-talk services to keep employees connected, especially when they are spread out over large geographies.

Here are some reasons why Roto-Rooter replaced traditional PTT with Voxer PRO as their primary way of communicating:
