Today, the pager is used in such a wide variety of different services, both public and private. The pager is an intricate part of many fields where there is a need to constantly be connected between one person and another or one office and another. Pager use is wide-spread in the emergency services sector.

It is enough just to note this incredible trust on the pager, to realize the size of the responsibility that corporations and individuals place on their pager systems. Besides the emergency industry, there is another fast growing field where pager systems are heavily employed in order to make services smoother and business better; the restaurant industry.
Following the trend of the pager system, we can predict what the pager might be used for in the future. The first area that seems to be on the brink of a pager systems take over is the childcare industry. The idea is an easy one to understand; parents of young children who use daycare services would be given a emergency device to notify them if there is any need to contact the daycare provider immediately. This is both a huge plus for the parent, as well as the daycare site. On the side of the parents, there is an increase in the feeling of trust and closeness with the daycare center. There is a boost of familiarity between the client and the business. On the other side, for the daycare, they can count on an additional tool to contact the parents in case of trouble, which means they can operate their business with more calm and self-assurance. If trends in this area continue, it is reasonable to think that in the next five years, all major daycare centers will provide their customer with a free pager system.
The next area that is sure to be impacted by the world of guest pager services in the future is the world of banking. People have a hard time with their banks hours and it can cause a lot of friction between the bank and its clients.

The use of pager systems in the banking industry could help put an end to long lines and unhappy banking experiences and give people a whole new perspective on the idea of banking.
