Pagers systems can be used for many different types of businesses and industries. A pager system is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to communicate amongst staff, and is one of the easiest methods of communication. Practically anyone can understand how to use a pager system, regardless of how tech savvy they may or may not be. Many people prefer pagers over cell phones when it comes to fast exchanges of information, especially for those who work in a fast paced environment. Pager systems are especially popular for fire fighters and hospital staff, who know that every second counts when you are dealing with an emergency situation. Pager systems can relay information to a large number of people very quickly, which can be very important in an emergency situation.

The Pager Warehouse has a wide selection of pager systems and pager accessories, and their knowledgable staff is available to help you to determine which system works best for you. Below is a list of some of the different pager system options that are offered by The Pager Warehouse.
1. Numeric Pagers
Numeric pagers rely on numbers to get a message across. Sometimes the message will contain a ten digit phone number for the recipient to call as soon as possible, and sometimes the message may include a series of numbers that are a part of a pre-determined code. If using a numeric pager it is important that everyone on your staff knows what each number in the code stands for. For example, if in your code the numbers “212”, mean that there is an emergency in room #212, then you can send that number to the pager without having to say anything else and the recipient will know what that means so that they can respond accordingly.
A beeper is the simplest and most straight forward members of the pager system family. Beepers originally got their name from the sound that they make, although these days some beepers may vibrate instead of making a sound. Beepers do not have a screen where a message or numeric message is displayed, instead they can alert the person just through sound or feel alone.
3. Voice Pagers
With a voice pager you can record a message and then have that message sent to another pager. The recipient of the message can press a button when they are ready to listen to the message.
4. Alphanumeric Pagers
Alphanumeric pagers use a combination of numbers and letters to relay a message. Because pager screens tend to be pretty small, the message should also be small so that it can all fit on the screen. Alphanumeric pagers can send short messages, or can use a number code to relay a message.
5. Response Pagers
Response Pagers are typically alphanumeric pagers that are somewhat more advanced and sophisticated. Response Pagers allow the recipient of the message to send a response to the original sender to let them know that the information was received.
