What can Relay do that a standard walkie-talkie or cell phone cannot?

Relay combines the best of a walkie-talkie and a cell phone together. It is a push to talk device, but with unlimited range, which has improved our operational communications significantly. It also gives us instant access to team members without having to pull out our phones to dial or text each other. This easy and seamless communication allows our teams to stay focused on our top priority - our members.

What features on Relay do you use besides two-way communication? 

We use the Relay Assistant to easily switch between channels, as well as the Home Channel feature to automatically move our Relays back to our default channels so we don’t miss any messages from our primary teams.

What have been the benefits you and your team have experienced from using Relay? 

We have been able to streamline communication between staff members. We now have updates being communicated more frequently between teams and messages are being sent and received at a faster rate. Relay has given us access to anyone, anywhere across our branch.

Any other thoughts on Relay you’d like to share?

Relay has provided the ideal solution that we were looking for - fast communication from anywhere.

Please share an overview of your property.

The Forsyth County YMCA branch has an onsite gym facility and aquatic center, as well as a 22-acre offsite camp.

What were you using for communication before Relay?

We were using traditional two-way walkie-talkies. Relay has provided better overall coverage and sound quality in a small and compact device, which is much easier for our counselors to carry around while keeping up with kids all day at camp.

What jobs does Relay help your teams perform?

Relay helps with inter-staff communication between the camp staff - counselors, leadership, and aquatics. The Director at the YMCA facility is able to communicate easily with the camp staff for daily updates, branch announcements, or for medical and emergency situations.
