AFP protects journalists with Vismo

The global news agency AFP (Agence France-Presse) is using Vismo Global tracking to help protect journalists who are reporting from some of the most dangerous locations in the World. The agency’s technical editor in charge of security, Emmanuel Serot, says:

“Journalism can be very dangerous work, and Vismo gives us an additional tool that helps us ensure the safety of our teams. It helps us track their movements and correlate their position relative to potential high risk areas. The panic-button capability gives our journalists added reassurance that in the event of an emergency and and unforeseen SOS situation, the response will be immediate. Our teams are often in remote and risky areas, and the ability to maintain contact with headquarters is extremely important to AFP.”

AFP is one of the world’s largest news agencies and delivers fast, in-depth coverage of the events shaping our world from wars and conflicts to politics, sports, entertainment and the latest breakthroughs in health, science and technology.

Vismo is tried and tested in over 100 countries around the world and is the world leader in Mobile Tracking Solutions.
