Technology-led employee safety specialists, Peoplesafe, has recently launched a new mass notification tool designed for instant communication with employees during a crisis.
Peoplesafe Alert is a simple, intuitive app which allows organisations to send and track mass safety messages to thousands of employees simultaneously, overriding phones set to silent or do not disturb and, if necessary, using geofencing capabilities to only communicate with those in a certain location.
Designed to be used in any crisis situation, Peoplesafe Alert can be operated in real time and messages cannot be edited or forwarded to protect the credibility of the organisation and guarantee that the information is current, correct and constantly controlled.
With its own dedicated platform, the app can sit on multiple devices and operating systems which guarantees that the priority messages will cut through any other conflicting or distracting messages at the time of an emergency.
The service is also ‘air-gapped’ meaning that the network is physically isolated from other, unsecured networks which guards against system failures and guarantees a reliable, robust form of communication.
Examples of when Peoplesafe Alert would come into play include; cyber-attacks, terror attacks, network security, control and access issues, outbreaks of infectious diseases and extreme environmental events such as flooding or an earthquake.
This marks an expansion for the technology company, which has previously focussed on lone worker safety and protection products and services. Peoplesafe CEO Naz Dossa said: “While the experience of steering employees through the COVID-19 pandemic is still fresh in everybody’s mind, we need to look ahead and guarantee that business continuity will not be compromised in the face of any future emergencies.
“Technology has been absolutely crucial in keeping employees informed, safe and (in the most part), able to deliver their work. Peoplesafe Alert’s instant, precise mass notification abilities will enable an organisation to communicate effectively with all, or some of their employees depending on the emergency.”
The tool enables businesses to be fully compliant with BS 22301 and the encrypted service is delivered from ISO27001 certified data centres which guarantees that an organisation is meeting regulatory standards for business continuity.
Peoplesafe Alert licenses can cost as little as £1 per user, per month, offering a scalable solution that can flex with the requirements of the organisation.
