Wouldn't it be brilliant to find out where people are, at the click of a mouse? Even better, wouldn't it be great to be able to find out where they are using equipment you already have? Check that sales person is in the right place at the right time. Find the nearest engineer to a job. Check the kids are OK. Now you can! As long as the person has a mobile phone, you can locate them. Using a simple and secure website, you can log in and locate your employees or family anywhere in the UK. Simply click on their name, and you'll see a map showing their position.

Today Rock Seven Mobile Services Limited launched a new 'mobile location' service called 'Closer.' The service allows their website users to locate individuals anywhere in the UK using a mobile phone signal.

Simple and easy to use, the system allows both businesses and consumers to locate their staff or family members at the click of a mouse.

The system works with mobile phones on Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile, Orange, Fresh, Tesco and EasyMobile.

Owners of the mobile phones to be located must give their permission first, by way of a text message.

The accuracy of the system varies, depending on the location in the UK. In cities and built-up areas the accuracy is usually between 100m and 1000m. In rural areas, where mobile transmitters are less dense, accuracy ranges from about 1km to 5km. Some mobile networks perform better than others.

After the trial period, an account costs a one-off fee of £50 + VAT and each time a user locates someone, it costs 25p + VAT.

Completely free 14-day trials are available to anyone by going to the website at

Rock Seven Mobile Services Limited (based in Colchester, Essex) specialize in the development of bespoke location-based, text-messaging and other products aimed at the mobile phone market. They are a sister company of Rock Seven Limited, which develops unique websites, databases and provides IT support.
