  • Help Us Maintain Morale at the Mining Camp Site – Happy people are more productive, so an effective morale calling solution will pay back dividends. We can provide options for telephone calling, based upon an allotted amount of time or minutes per day/week/month, and facilitate the ability to allow your staff to purchase additional time beyond what your company wants to allot. Kiosks can be set-up with Internet connections to enable text or video chat for staff; or wireless access for those that want to connect with their own smartphones or tablets. The morale calling systems for voice or data can be segregated from the business applications so that it does not impede the performance of business critical applications.

For camp sites, video surveillance can be routed over satellite links back to your head office or your security services provider to ensure the safety of your team and assets in the field.
