How We Help
How Locate Global helps
Thanks to the adoption of Locate Global, drivers across the US have been provided with a safety solution they can trust. Via a bespoke mobile phone application, that directly links travelling individuals to monitoring teams, any journeys can be monitored in real-time and users can access timers to automatically raise alerts should their journeys be delayed.
In emergency situations, the app provides users with an easy way to raise alerts, which simultaneously sends the user’s location and key information to the monitored dashboard and designated emergency contacts. In turn response teams can escalate incidents through predetermined channels, informing relevant stakeholders and dispatching emergency services if required.
Additionally, the platforms geofencing technology allows monitoring teams to highlight high-risk areas for drivers to avoid should it be necessary, working in tandem with a reporting feature that provides drivers themselves to report hazards and non-emergency incidents.
This solution also ensures that senior management can fulfil their duty of care requirements for their operators, and provides an effective response to all emergencies, allowing their mobile workforce to feel safe and secure – wherever they are in the world.
