Vismo has launched Vismo Monitor, an app to help organisations monitor alerts about threatening, or potentially threatening events, from their travelling or lone working employees. The new app enables those with access to the Vismo Secure Portal, such as security teams or managers, to receive alerts to their mobile devices.
Employees can raise alerts using the Vismo Locate & Protect App. Its Red Alert feature can be activated if an employee finds themselves in a high-risk situation. The alert will then notify security or managers through an In-App message on the Vismo Monitor App.
All details are displayed, including a person’s last known location on the map, the time and date the alert was activated, their phone number and email address and access to an audio recording from when the alert was activated. The administrator – such as a security team or manager – can press the number to call the individual from the app.
The app ensures employers have all necessary information to hand so they can act if a staff member is in a critical situation. It provides organisations with an intuitive tool to ensure they can monitor and respond to alerts.
Craig Swallow, Vismo CEO, says: “Developed by Vismo, the new Monitor App enables employee alerts to be closely monitored, ultimately ensuring support is sent to those who need it. Our customers were telling us that alert administrators such as their security team, needed more immediacy of alert notification. Vismo is dedicated to listening to client feedback and continually implementing new features into its products and services. Vismo Monitor is a great example of that.”
