Product Description

Tech Wholesale has the lowest prices anywhere on the Motorola CLP1080e radio for retail stores and hospitality workers. Motorola knows that waiters, kitchen staff, hosts, clerks and bellhops need to frequently communicate with each other on the job. However, a bulky handheld radio isn't always an option. This eight-channel UHF radio has a streamlined design that lets you discreetly pass along requests and get answers quickly so you can keep customers happy.

The Motorola CLP1080e 8-Channel, 1-Watt Radio is the perfect choice for small to mid sized businesses that need to focus on simple, discreet communication between team members. 

Each Motorola CLP1080e compact business radio clips directly to your belt using the included holster. The combination of a large push-to-talk button, adjustable earpiece and in-line microphone means it never has to leave your belt. The button is even textured so your finger doesn't slip off.

It comes with a range of 100,000 square feet or 10 floors, which covers most retail stores and restaurants along with smaller hotels or office buildings. Add a UHF repeater and you'll have coverage for larger establishments too.

The CLPe on-site radio series operates on 99 business-exclusive series and with 219 interference elimination codes, you'll enjoy uncluttered voice talk that remains clear and private.

Motorola has developed a variety of features to help make communication easier in hectic work environments. These include voice-assisted menus, a smart status light, adjustable volume settings and a rechargeable 12-hour lithium-ion battery. You can even program the radio from a computer using Motorola's free Customer Programming Software and a CPS programming cable.

Stock up on the best compact hospitality radios from Tech Wholesale. For businesses in the retail or restaurant sectors, we highly recommend the CLP1080e Motorola two-way radio. Designed specifically for use in environments where your associates must interact frequently with large numbers of people, this radio is a great purchase for smaller companies that need a communication solution that is simple to use, and it covers a range that is suitable for most small- or medium-sized shops, restaurants, hotels, or offices.

What sets these radios apart for these industries? Just consider their features:

  • Anti-microbial properties built right into the exterior housing of the radios to keep germs and other illness-inducing organisms from building up on the radio
  • Built to military specifications for durability in the most demanding situations
  • Compact size that keeps it out of your associates' way while they are working

Motorola CLP1080e walkie talkies also share many of the desirable features found in the other Motorola radios in our online shop. They are easy to program when you buy a CPS programming cable and use Motorola's free programmable software. This radio can be attached easily to a lapel, pocket, or waistband with a magnetic clip (sold separately) or a traditional belt clip holster (included), making it unobtrusive. We have found it to be one of the most professional-looking radios ever created.

Standard items included when you buy CLP1080e radios include a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge, a belt holster, a charger, an earpiece/mic and a stand-up charging tray. You can upgrade your radio for a small fee and get a high capacity lithium-ion battery that can power your radio for up to 14 hours on one charge. Choose a multi-unit charger to conveniently power up more than one radio at a time, and make programming a breeze when you use a radio cloning cable.

Every order that contains at least one radio ships free in the U.S.

You'll also receive essential accessories such as the battery, a charging tray and wall charger, a belt clip and user guide.

If you want to learn more about these radios, check out the video overview and user guide or call our communications experts. We'll help you determine if the CLP1080e is the right model for your needs or if you need a more advanced radio such as the one channel CLP1010e.

Who should use the Motorola CLP1080e 2-way radio? Any customer service driven enterprise with a business need for tight knit two-way radio communication between team members.

Restaurants: Have your seating hosts greet your diners with a smooth professional image empowered by two-way radio communication that keeps them on top of table turnover. When a customer with a food allergy asks if there are mushrooms in an entree, show them their health is safe at your restaurant when their server simply pushes to talk to the kitchen and gets accurate information right from the source. Ensure tables are bussed faster as wait staff quickly informs bus personnel of the next table in line for cleanup.

Hotels: Make sure traffic through your hotel lobby flows smoothly and efficiently. Bell staff on tap via their CLPe series radios knows who's ready to go upstairs and when. Close communication with the concierge gets everyone's questions answered easily and with authority. Give your security staff a more polished look than other hotels with a Motorola CLPe series radio clipped right to their lapel. Your guests will feel at ease as soon as they step onto your welcome mat when they see your staff stays connected in order to make their vacation or business trip more enjoyable.

Retail stores: Running all over the store to find a product or get answers is so passe. Your employees don't want to do it and your customers don't want to wait while they do. Empower your sale staff to respond to customer requests with a touch of a button and everybody's happy. Motorola CLPe two-way radios provide seamless communication between your cashiers, your product floor and the shelves in the back. You save time and money when you save steps.

Caterers: Don't interrupt your client's business presentation or baby shower with sound effects from a crime scene. Make sure your catering company creates the kind of atmosphere you'd want at your wedding or special event by keeping walkie-talkie communication just between staffers. You'll present a professional image that gets you recommended on social networks as the group who made everything run smoothly. Guest requests are handled with the ease of Motorola's Push-to-talk button.

Car Dealerships: Social mores make people shy away from loud talk about big money. It just squicks people out. Discretion is a big plus when negotiations are going down and people are discussing their finances with strangers. Best handle that stuff quietly through the CLPe series two-way radio's earpiece speaker system. Sales and reception staff are the picture of professional in a small, sleek CLPe walkie-talkie. Your whole team stays connected and customers see they can trust their sales rep when they get answers readily.

Dental Offices: Seamless integration between front office staff, hygienists, dental assistants and doctors reassures the nervous dental office patient. And who isn't nervous in that waiting room... or The Chair. Patients see everyone is on top of their game and poised to make their dental visit as painless as possible with two-way radio communication. Your dental office staff will love the anti-microbial properties of their CLP1080e's polycarbonate housing. Disinfection is a must in a medical office of any kind! *Coverage may vary depending on weather and terrain conditions. FCC licensing is required.
