Benefits of using Vismo

Business Benefits

Identifying people in high risk areas

Country-change and Geo-fence alerts provide instant feedback and escalation when employees stray into high risk areas. Geo-fences also show when people move outside safe areas.

International incidents

Vismo provides a quick way to view latest locations in case of Earthquake, Flood or Terrorist Incident. Provides latitude and longitude and reporting for the involvement of medical assistance or physical extraction teams.

Responding to employees in distress

Panic alerts triggered from the device provide a way for a user to raise the alarm in the central control centre. Vibration and subtle colour change give comfort that the alert has triggered.

The iPhone has a separate Panic app which allows the user to press-and-hold to launch a panic without having to go into the Vismo app.

Vismo will covertly record audio which is sent back to the central website. Alert emails provide location maps complete with mapping images and recent locations with lat/long for reference.

Alert SMS provide textual address information and a contact number for response when there is no access to a web browser.

Duty of care procedures

Use location and panic provision for lone worker protection in order to adhere to corporate manslaughter requirements.

Phone activity reporting

Resolve contact issues by reviewing times when the device was switched on/off, charged, in a coverage area.

Vismo has been successfully used in over 150 countries worldwide from Albania to Zimbabwe.

In normal operation the auto GPS tracking of Vismo will return locations every 15 minutes. However, when Vismo detects a country-change it immediately prompts a new GPS location and can send out an Country-Change alert.

Reassurance of Employees

Whether it is a travelling executive or a lone worker entering a high-risk area, employees know that regular location data is always being sent to central control and that someone knows where they are at all times.

The Vismo application can also show the current and historical locations to the employee on their GPS tablet for peace of mind.

The Panic alert facility provides quick and covert way of indicating distress. Vismo for iPhone has a separate panic app that makes this process quick and simple.

The panic alert provides a simple vibration and colour change confirmation alert has happened. The employee will know that an audio clip is now recording and will be sent back invisibly to central control.

Battery levels are always sent back with each location fix so central control will always be aware of battery levels and low-battery alerts can be triggered.
