The Bold Locator provides an end-to-end lone worker solution supporting both smartphone apps and a range of devices. For the lone worker, the system provides a flexible and simple way to call for help. At the control room, alerts generated by a phone app or dedicated device enable the operator to view the user’s location as well as listen in to verify the incident. Users can generate check calls before entering potentially hazardous situations which will escalate into SOS alerts when the time period has expired, unless cancelled. Check call handling is managed centrally so that if the phone or device is no longer available, an alert will still be raised in the Bold monitoring system. Read more
