Personal Safety Platform for Realtors

“Our agents generally feel more relaxed and safer at work knowing that the office can be notified of their whereabouts if an incident arises whilst mobile. The simplicity of the platform makes it easy for alerts to be raised in a situation of distress. This is something all property management companies should invest in for their employees.”

How Locate Global helps

Through the cloud-based platform, Locate Global turns a realtor’s smartphone into a personal safety device with real time GPS monitoring, video, audio and alert features. The company introduced Locate Global across their entire workforce, including real estate agents property managers, facility contractors and maintenance workers.

With the safety app, the user can decide when to activate tracking and can share their location with emergency contacts or co-workers.

Benefits of the Locate Global platform

Using the intuitive dashboard, management can request that its staff check in once they have arrived at a particular location, providing a real time overview of their whereabouts and time of arrival.
For maximum visibility, the platform updates the location of the user at least every 10 seconds during an emergency situation or when using the journey sharing feature.

Should an alert be raised, and the user subsequently find themselves in a situation where they are forced to deactivate their alert, a duress pin code can be used to notify emergency contacts and response teams to escalate the issue.

The company can receive real time GPS tags accompanied by text and photos, providing information that can be shared as necessary with particular groups of co-workers, or those in a certain location.
