Vismo enables travelling employees and Lone Workers to be located globally through the Vismo Global Traveller App or on other compatible devices. Many unique features are incorporated into the Vismo Secure Portal to help an employer better manage the safety of its employees, in many market verticals.
Discover some of the best features of Vismo below:
1. Mass Notification
If an incident or emergency crisis occurs, organisations need to quickly update employees with critical information which may be vital to their safety.
Using Vismo, Mass Notifications can be sent out from the Vismo Secure Portal, to individuals, groups or those within or in close proximity to a defined geographic area (i.e. where the incident has occurred). Mass Notifications can be sent through multiple channels so that delivery of critical information is assured. This can include SMS, Email, In-App and automated Phone Calls; focusing on reaching the individual, not just the device.
These messaging channels can be sent simultaneously or consecutively within a set time period, and loop the communications until a response is received and measured.
The Mass Notification feature provides the necessary tools to enable organisations to send out critical information to individuals, receive an updated location and understand their safety status’ through their response then follow the required escalation process. It’s a rapid, easy to manage and cost effective solution for any employer faced with the challenge of managing risk related messaging to a global employee base.
2. Point of Interest (POI) Layers
Organisations may want to view their employees in relation to key POI’s to further understand their location and proximity to a POI, should an incident occur. This would enable organisations to quickly, and specifically react to a situation through identifying the nearest places of safety or other material POIs which may be relevant (e.g. known high risk sites, dangerous storage sites, flood areas etc).
Vismo has integrated POI layers into the Vismo Secure Portal, which can be added to a map to view different areas in relation to the employees. Vismo clients can define and create their own layers to enable them to take account of specific POIs which are applicable to their organisation.
Vismo has incorporated COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University and UK Government, to enable organisations to view employees’ locations in relation to the latest COVID-19 statistics. As the spread of COVID-19 evolves, Vismo can support organisations to keep track of the outbreak in relation to their employees location.
When Lone Workers are undertaking an assignment or task, monitoring their location and two-way communication is vital to help protect workers and help provide peace of mind.
Vismo has introduced Assignments into the Vismo Secure Portal, enabling organisations to create an Assignment and appoint a task to any user. Employees will be alerted when an Assignment has started, and the organisation can set a time frame in which the user must Check-In on the Vismo App. If the user does not Check-In within the given time frame, a Red Flag Alert is activated within the Vismo Secure Portal to notify managers of the account of a potential incident.
The user can alter or extend the Assignment and add notes within the Vismo App, which is then updated in the Vismo Secure Portal, enabling two-way secure messaging. This feature keeps both the Lone Worker and organisation informed of the task at hand, its status and location of the worker and any updates or potential risks.
4. Red Alerts
In an emergency situation, employees need a way of quickly alerting others of an issue, to ensure their safety is being monitored.
The Red Alert within the Vismo App is easy to trigger from a smartphone or tablet with a simple press and hold. When an Alert is activated, email and SMS notifications are sent to the managers of the Vismo account and includes the individual’s last known locations. As the Red Alert is activated, an audio clip between 20 seconds and one minute (definable length) will automatically start to record and is sent back to the Vismo Secure Portal to inform managers of the situation.
This feature provides users with peace of mind and if a situation occurred, a Red Alert could be triggered through the App and the relevant teams are notified to respond to the situation.
5. Privacy Mode
To protect employee privacy without comprising safety, Vismo has integrated a Privacy Mode feature. This enables individuals to enable Privacy Mode as they wish and choose when their device is located, to safeguard their privacy whilst using the Vismo App. However, if an individual is in Privacy Mode and an emergency arises, the Panic Alert may still be activated. Once the Panic Alert has been activated, Vismo will disable Privacy Mode and will report on the location of the device.
These capabilities provide peace of mind to employees that if an emergency occurred, the Panic Alert can be activated, and a location will be visible within the Vismo Secure Portal.
These features enable Vismo to support and protect organisations in various industries globally. Vismo also incorporates many other excellent features into the platform to protect employees and Lone Workers. Features such as geo-fencing capabilities, the ability to create incident areas and set country change alerts, accurate location reporting and many more.
