IP Clocks – Benefit to the Transportation Industry

Many individuals do not know how much of a difference adequate time management can make. Countless benefits can be achieved just from uniformity of time throughout a building. In particular, organizations in the transportation industry can thrive tremendously with the implementation of Sapling’s IP clock system. Whether it’s a bus station, an airport, or transportation service provider, both managers and employees of transportation organizations can benefit a great deal with the aid of an IP clock system.

Not all transportation organizations are the same size. With regards to larger establishments, such as airports or metro stations, there is a stronger likelihood that an ordinary clock system wouldn’t provide consistent time synchronization. This is generally due to the secondary clocks falling out of the range of the clock system’s repeaters. This problem is nonexistent with an IP clock system. This technologically advanced device utilizes PoE or Power-over-Ethernet, which is used to power the clocks as well as provide the time with one CAT5 cable. Along with easy installation, the IP system consists of a built-in web interface. This attribute allows the user to set features such as 12/24 hour mode (digital clocks only), automatic updating for various time zones, schedule count ups or countdowns for breaks or next round of arrivals or departures (digital clocks only), etc. This is especially beneficial for organizations that generally have no time to waste, such as those in the transportation industry. People have places to be and can’t afford to miss an important flight or train ride due to inaccurate time displays from the station’s secondary clocks.

In addition to benefiting patrons, the unique features that come with an IP clock system can immensely aid employees of a transportation station with their everyday duties. Management no longer needs to fret about employees reporting to their specific stations late and blaming it on inconsistent time displays throughout the building. When there are uniform time displays, confusion as to what the the time is greatly decreases. On the other hand, time synchronization increases the overall cohesion of all employees and managers, which significantly enhances productivity in the workplace. With employees arriving at their station on time, there is less of a likelihood that an operation goes wrong and, thus, there will be fewer complaints from patrons. Minimizing the amount of disgruntled patrons is the best way for a transportation organization to remain relevant in such a highly competitive industry.

Though an IP clock system may be more expensive than the average clock system, it is necessary in a competitive industry such as transportation. All it takes is a few patrons to be dissatisfied with their experience to blacken the reputation of a transportation organization. Once those people tell their friends, and their friends tell their friends, things can become problematic. It is important for the well being of transportation organizations to such scenarios from the get go. Installing an IP clock system is the best way to do that.
