Panasonic Attune Headsets

Panasonic Attune Headset Drive-Thru Communications System

Attune delivers better digital performance through an expert spread spectrum design. Conventional order-taking systems typically operate on the unrestricted 2.4 GHz band, which can experience severe interference from such things as microwave ovens, cellular phones and wireless network routers (WiFi). Attune utilizes a restricted 1.9 GHz band, with a regulated Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) voice technology protocol, for interference-free communications with no FCC fee required. Attune provides exceptional reception and sound quality through the use of true digital packet diversity, virtually eliminating communication dead spots and signal fading. Plus, Attune offers Advanced Digital Noise Reduction to virtually eliminate ambient noise and an Echo Canceller for clearer communications with no background echo interference.

  • Available in two ergonomic and sleek styles, all-in-one (AIO) and belt pack, both engineered for durability in rigorous environments
  • Full day battery, up to 25 hours, charge in 4 hours or less and cannot over charge
  • User-friendly base station makes initial set up and telephone troubleshooting fast and easy – no difficult codes to decipher or look up
  • Program the manager’s headset for additional external device functions, including one-touch activation from the order taker, and receipt of voice prompts to indicate attention is needed in a specific area of the store

Hear from an RDS Customer

Testimonial from an RDS Dairy Queen Customer

One year ago we decided, after 28 years of owning a Dairy Queen, to tear down our Dairy Queen and rebuild it from the ground up. We knew going in that we would have to replace all of our equipment, including our Point-of-Sale register system and Drive-thru system. I had reservations on replacing those two items because they were only a couple of years old. This system was ok, but the software was universal and not written for our franchise. The company that installed this system worked very hard to make it work, but we had constant problems.

Point-of-Sale systems are expensive and more importantly, have to work “all the time” or your business stops. So, if you’re going to spend a lot of money, you’re praying it’s going to help you make money.

I owned a Panasonic system for 15 years (7500 series) so I knew I was getting a quality system. What I didn’t know is the support behind this system. 

The installation went flawlessly, as our installer knew our system and had many years of experience. He was customer friendly and did not want to leave us until our whole staff felt comfortable. So far, I was very impressed.

But, like all of the other equipment I purchase new for this store, I knew that new car smell could easily give me a lot of problems (and did). Getting service after you have purchased equipment does not typically make one happy, as, once you buy it; they don’t want to fix it. (That list is long)

Not RDS. I firmly believe that I purchased a product from a company that puts service first. I did not buy a Cash Register system. I bought a product that took away my biggest worry of my new store. I bought support, and, not just support, the best I’ve ever had.

I wish only that I could have had that support with 10% of the other equipment I invested in.

Yes, I am a happy customer and they exceeded my expectations.
