As a business we feel confident we are protecting our lone workers in the most robust way possible and we have found the app simple to administer behind the scenes. We believe StaySafe remains the best solution in the market.
(PRWEB UK) 23 October 2014
Canadian organisation the Calgary John Howard Society (CJHS) has contracted with UK business StaySafe. The not-for profit organisation uses the app to monitor employee safety when they are working alone in the community. The app, which works on both android and iPhone, tracks employee location via GPS and alerts their manager if they do not check-in within a specified time.
CJHS then can keep track of employees’ whereabouts using the StaySafe online Hub which accurately locates workers on a map and provides real-time updates on their location. If an employee activates the app’s panic button or fails to check in, alerts are automatically triggered on screen and via text and email, allowing the society to take immediate action.
Nic Etheridge Calder, Housing Reintegration Manager at CJHS explains their decision to renew their contract with StaySafe; “There are several ‘panic button’ type solutions available in the market but StaySafe offer so much more. As well as having a wide range of functions like GPS tracking and a duress pin, what really makes StaySafe stand out to us is that it’s an app. Our employees downloaded the app onto their personal smartphones which meant a very quick and easy set-up and the feedback we’ve received has been very positive.
“As a business we feel confident we are protecting our lone workers in the most robust way possible and we have found the app simple to administer behind the scenes. We believe StaySafe remains the best solution in the market and we have no need to look elsewhere”.
Don Cameron, CEO, StaySafe comments “The beauty of an app is that it is works anywhere in the world. We are pleased that the StaySafe implementation at the Calgary John Howard Society has been such a success and that they continue to view us as being at the top of the market. Canada has very strict regulations on lone worker safety and we are proud that the StaySafe app meets their expectations”.
