Reindeer Lake Lodge, renowned for its exclusive fishing expeditions, faced significant challenges in ensuring the safety of its guests and operational efficiency. With a fleet of 7 boats navigating the vast and remote waters of Reindeer Lake, the lodge needed a reliable way to track their boats in real-time, communicate with guides remotely, and respond promptly to any emergencies. Traditional communication devices were inadequate due to the lack of cellular coverage in the area, which led to difficulties in coordinating trips, managing logistics, and ensuring the safety of every individual on the water.

To address these challenges, Reindeer Lake Lodge implemented the ACR Bivy Stick and ACR SkyRouter, integrating them into their operational framework. The Bivy Stick, known for its compact, satellite communication capabilities, was equipped on each boat, allowing guides to send and receive messages, share their location, and access weather updates. The ACR SkyRouter platform was utilized to centrally monitor the fleet, providing real-time location data, communication logs, and the ability to manage multiple assets seamlessly. This technology operates by connecting with the Iridium satellite network, enabling communication and location tracking even in the most remote areas where traditional cellular signals are unavailable.

The integration of ACR Bivy Stick and SkyRouter transformed the operational capabilities of Reindeer Lake Lodge. The lodge now boasts an unparalleled safety record, with the ability to communicate with any boat regardless of its location on the lake. Operational efficiency has seen a significant improvement, with streamlined trip coordination and real-time decision-making capabilities. The lodge has also been able to enhance the guest experience by providing peace of mind and increasing the time spent on fishing activities rather than logistics.
