This summer Vismo will be used to provide peace of mind to US parents as their children go abroad, often for the first time, with the People To People Ambassador programmes.
This is the third year that the tracking solution has been used to allow parents to track and communicate with their kids as they explore Europe, China and Australasia.
This year, the Blackbox feature will allow parents to closely keep an eye on the number of roaming calls made and the content of SMS so that they stay in complete control.
Vismo has launched the Connectivity Check feature. If a device isn’t providing tracking information then the next question is ultimately “have they got it switched on?”.The connectivity check uses SMS to send a check to the BlackBerry (completely invisible to the owner of the device). Not only will you know with seconds whether the phone is off, you will also be told when the phone is switched back on again.
Together with the BlackBox call logs, SMS Content and battery levels, the connectivity check is yet another tool that lets you stay in control of your employees as they travel the world.
