- Women in Security Awards
A lone worker protection app is a finalist in the Mobile App category of the Surrey Digital Awards, to mark progressive thinking by businesses in the county.
StaySafe Business is an app and surrounding cloud-based monitoring service which tracks a lone worker’s location via GPS and alerts their manager if they do not check-in within a set time. The app works on iPhone, Android and BlackBerry and offers such functions as a panic button, working session expiry and low battery warnings, GPS tracking, inactivity and duress alerts. 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 an employer to take action. Monitoring can be done in-house via an online hub or outsourced to Securitas who offer 24-7 monitoring and response.
Jeff Carroll Operations Director, StaySafe, says: “StaySafe takes advantage of smartphone technology across the leading platforms with apps for both the B2B and B2C markets. The business is focused entirely on protecting lone workers across a wide range of sectors as well as lone persons. As both digital and personal safety experts we are constantly innovating and are passionate about using the latest technology to keep people safe. We are aiming to become the market leader in lone worker solutions and awards such as the SDA’s are incredibly important for supporting this objective. Surrey has a rapidly expanding technological economy and we are delighted to be recognised within such a leading and fast paced community.”
Winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony on March 5. Visit www.staysafeapp.com/staysafe-business.
