PTT Apps vs ALO
Why choose ALO over all other PTT Apps?

Why choose ALO over Push-to-Talk (PTT) apps? Also known as push-to-talk over cellular (PoC), there are many PTT apps. They exist to provide radio replacement technology to professionals and consumers. PTT apps mostly have the same features. ALO does everything PTT apps do and much more.

The one word I would use to describe ALO is transformative. Before ALO we relied on radios and email for fan communication.

ALO has added value even beyond what I expected. ALO helps us communicate directly with our fans and respond faster.
