Peterborough, Canada (PressExposure) May 22, 2009 -- GILL Technologies (www.gill-technologies.com) announced that it has prepared the hardware and telecom expense management expertise to help businesses with mobile phone fleets conform to the Ontario Governmentâs Bill 118. The law makes it punishable by fine to hand operate cell phones and other electronic devices with screens while operating a motor vehicle. Hands free use is permitted however, which puts many businesses in the position of having to acquire headsets and voice activated functionality for employees who routinely communicate by cell phone while driving.
The Peterborough, Ontario and Tampa, Florida based telecommunications consulting company was prepared for the billâs passage on April 22, 2009 before then, had already performed a preliminary analysis of how companies that needed to conform to the law would be affected. GILL Technologies predicts an upsurge in demand for Bluetooth headsets and rich voice activated features delivered through a combination of hardware and cellular services. Canadaâs transition to 3G smartphones requires that voice activated features not only encompass traditional telephony, but the ability to browse email.
The company has also made arrangements with select suppliers to provide Bluetooth headsets at a considerable cost savings.
âCorporate cellular customers outside of Ontario should understand that the growing trend to ban handheld use while driving is likely to affect them as well,â said GILL Technologies president George Gill. âWe not only urge people with mobile fleets in Ontario to upgrade to hands free use, but advise that companies everywhere that expect communications on the road do the same. Itâs not only forward looking, but safer â thatâs why the law came into effect in the first place.â
