Pagers: Reliable, Cost-Effective Messaging

Paging continues to be a critical part of the communications strategy for companies and organisations of all types. Paging technology has proven to be both a highly reliable and a cost-effective method of communications for business.

Spok offers paging solutions with a number of market-leading features, all wrapped in a durable product. In fact, Spok is a one-stop-shop for pagers, paging transmitters, and critical alerting systems for many industries including hospitalscasinoshospitality, and more. This helps you save money and reduce the frustration of integrating equipment among multiple manufacturers.

Onsite Paging

With onsite paging, the paging transmitters are located “onsite” at your organisation, and you own and control the system.

Pager Highlights

  • Robust: The plastic enclosure for Spok pagers (formerly Commtech Wireless pagers) has been rigorously tested.
  • Menu Options Set for Each User: Like the user profiles in software, the Spok pagers can be configured to display only the options you want each user to access.
  • Extensive Over-the-Air Programming: You can configure many features over the air, including Power Off, Time, Delete Messages, Alert Mode, Capcodes, and Disable Pager. Spok pagers are easy to program by hand, over the air, and even via a USB port.
  • Priority Override: This feature ensures that pagers set to inaudible become audible for high-priority messages. This is especially important for hospital pagers.

Note: not all pagers are available in all geographies.
