Product Description

The CLP1040 4-Channel, 1-Watt Radio is the final result of Motorola's research within hotels, restaurants and retail stores, and you might be surprised at what it can do to transform communication within your business. This smart radio comes with a swivel belt holster that allows you to take it anywhere you go, and the compact, comfortable earpiece allows discreet, private two-way communication. This is one of the best Motorola two-way radios for business of all sizes.

Function meets affordability when you order the Motorola CLP1040 two-way radio from Tech Wholesale. This compact UHF radio is for workers who need to be able to communicate across rooms and floors but don't want to haul a bulky walkie-talkie around. The slimline belt-holster unit and adjustable earpiece were designed with retail store, hotel, restaurant and small office workers in mind. Motorola has done extensive research into these industries, and the CLP1040 radio meets the demands for a simple walkie-talkie that does what you need it to.

With this four-channel UHF radio from Motorola, your business communications will be online when they need to be. You don't even need to take the radio off your belt Ñ just press the large tap-to-talk button and use the in-line PTT microphone to talk with co-workers throughout the building. Each unit has a range of 100,000 square feet or 10 floors as is. By adding a repeater, you can increase the range to 250,000 square feet, getting the same convenience in larger offices and stores.

Don't let the small size fool you Ñ the CLP1040 two-way business radio has the same features as many larger models. Each radio has 99 exclusive business UHF frequencies along with a host of special codes to eliminate interference and cross-talk. There are 16 adjustable audio levels to be heard in all settings and with voice-assisted menus, it's easy to set up and program your radio. If you want Bluetooth capabilities as well, consider the Motorola CLP1060 that also has two additional channels.

Highly functional and extremely convenient, this two-way UHF radio can keep your staff talking and collaborating for 9 to 12 hours. If you need more talk-time, upgrade to a high-capacity Li-ion battery that can power through 14 hours with no problems. This is one powerful radio; it has a range of 100,000 square feet and 10 floors, which is a testament to its signal strength.

A simple (and large) tap-to-talk button lets users hit the ground running with very little training. This radio is different from the CLP1010, which operates on a single channel, because it uses four individual channels for internal communication. It's versatile and discreet enough to be used in restaurants, retail shops and dental offices, and it might be the perfect solution for your business.

It certainly makes sense that the businesses that actually use two-way radios and walkie-talkies would be the best source of information as to what these devices must be able to do to meet their business needs. Motorola certainly agrees, which is why they contacted retail stores, hotels, restaurants and others in the service industry to find out just what they are looking for in a business radio. The resulting answers were put to good use in the CLP radio series, which includes CLP1040 Motorola two-way radios.

At Tech Wholesale, we frequently recommend the CLP1040 Motorola two-way radio because it offers an excellent combination of functionality and convenience, giving smaller businesses and companies that need only basic radio communication just what they need in a quality walkie-talkie and radio.

Motorola's CLP1040 provides the perfect solution for businesses that need to separate out conversations between user groups focused on differing tasks. Let's look at an example in a retail store setting. The manager would take their own channel, Channel 1, so anyone who needs to ask a specific question that's not relevant to the whole store can quickly get their manager on the horn and get the answer they need without distracting the rest of the team away from their work. The manager might then assign cashiers to Channel 2, so they can talk amongst themselves and anyone who needs them knows where to get them. Maintenance/Housekeeping could have Channel 3, to be quickly dispatched to clean up messes before they become a legal liability.

Floor sales staff would be available on Channel 4 for questions and price checks. The CLP1040's multi-channel functionality can be configured to fit any way your retail, restaurant or hotel business works. All CLP series two-way radios transmit and receive up to 100,000 sq. feet and up to 10 floors using only 1-Watt of power! Depending how your job site is configured and how your team works, high and low power settings can help you preserve your battery charge, so you can take your walkie-talkies into extra innings should the need arise.

Each CLP1040 ships with a lithium-ion battery that offers between 9-12 hours on a full charge. For customer service businesses that need to push it a bit longer, upgrade your CLP1040 battery to the high capacity lithium-ion battery for as much as 14 hours of two-way radio talk per charge. Cloning settings between radios happens easily when you use a cloning cable or multi-unit charger. Big bonus on the multi-unit charger is the comfort in knowing where your walkie-talkies are when they're plugged in. No more frantically running around trying to track 'em all down. Of course, Motorola thinks of the little bits too. They designed the CLP multi-charger units with a little pocket in the back of each dock to keep that walkie-talkie's earpiece/mic with the radio itself as it charges. Motorola for the win!
