We live in a time when faster, newer technology is constantly being pushed upon us. Every time we turn on the TV or log into our email, we are being blasted with message after message telling us that the latest and greatest of technology has finally arrived to save us from the hassles of the last great innovation. It is a consumer driven world we live in, and whatever is next always seems to be that much better than what we have now.
But some within the world of technology have been working hard to bring the best of both worlds to the market. What if it were possible to use our modern advancements to simply improve upon the ideas that we have already implemented and that are actually working quite well?
Take simple audio recording, for example. Some companies, such as the Canadian firm CVDS, have developed a technology that allows any and all voice communications to be recorded, stored, and accessed easily. This may seem like a simple concept, but the applications of this technology, also called a call logger, can be a real game-changer…or even a life-saver.
By recording incoming communications, many emergency response operators are now able to communicate more effectively and efficiently with both those in need and those who are trying to help them. In the event of a dropped call or loss of signal, the operator can simply refer back to the conversation that has already taken place and direct responders to the location. The same can be said for the responders need to access information from the operator. It might seem like a simple concept, but simply having access to critical information can easily be the difference between life and death.
