Tech Wholesale Saves the Day for Stanford University with State-of-the-Art Radio System

June 2nd, 2016

Faced with the task of orchestrating a perfectly organized tour of the world-renowned SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory for 60 members of its Board of Trustees, with just 4 days to bring it all together, Stanford University reached out to Tech Wholesale for help.

Founded in 1962, this facility is one of 10 Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science laboratories, operated by Stanford University on behalf of the DOE. It is focused on the technology of the future, attracting thousands of the world’s most respected scientists with its cutting-edge research to discover new medicines, advance electronics and produce green energy for a healthier environment. Stanford’s trustees include some of the most prestigious business leaders, such as the CFO of Google, the CEO of GM and Stanford’s president. Needless to say, for this important tour of their research center, they needed to be at the very top of their game. They required a world-class radio tour system for a professional presentation that every guest could hear clearly. They needed the best equipment on the market – and they needed it fast.

Tech Wholesale to the rescue! When the Tech Wholesale team heard of their challenge, we dropped everything and made their radio tour system our top priority, expediting the shipment so they’d have them in ample time. Our efforts were applauded by their greatly appreciative tour organizer. He was able to easily program the units in his kitchen over the weekend, in preparation for Monday’s tour.

“I cannot overstate how grateful I am for Tech Wholesale’s exceptional help and generosity in providing this hardware to us on such short notice and at such a steep discount,” Interviewee, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. “It is truly a much greater level of service than I expect from any supplier, particularly one to whom SLAC was an unknown customer just a few days ago.”

The high performance tour group system that we recommended and rushed off to the Stanford accelerator laboratory was from Listen Technologies. Their portable radio systems are specially designed for guided tours, to create the highest quality listening experience for visitors, new employees, potential clients and others for whom uninterrupted, clearly communicated information is of utmost importance. The system consists of a portable RF transmitter, carrying case, discreet wearable microphone and multiple receivers and ear speakers for the guests. With this specialized system, guides are able to be heard without having to shout or run around in an attempt to keep everyone together. Guests can hear the guide even in noisy locations, and there are custom systems available for any group size. The units are easy to use and they’re extremely portable for indoors or outdoors.

These systems have many uses in a wide range of environments. A tour group radio system can be used to show shareholders the daily operations of a manufacturing plant, take visitors through a guided tour of a museum exhibit, address attendees in a house of worship or guide visitors around a busy zoo. Using the right equipment can turn a potentially chaotic tour into a smoothly run, easy-to-hear and informative presentation that benefits both the speaker and the guests. Tech Wholesale is with you every step of the way to make sure you receive your tour group radio system quickly, answer any questions you might have and help you get everything up and operating perfectly. We’ll help make your guided tour a great success!
