EVERYWHERE Communications offers a global range of product solutions to provide communication links that will assist in saving lives, improving connectivity and productivity for people and assets, all while supporting remote worker safety and duty of care.
According to the CEO of LeaderFactor, a lack of engagement with employees and team members will result in disengagement and a decrease in productivity. EVERYWHERE Communications’ team satellite communications and monitoring platform has launched two new types of check-ins. These new check-ins will allow engagement and will offer administrators global awareness of their team members’ location, but more importantly, their well-being.
The Everywhere Hub offers the new ‘check-in’ feature. Check-ins allow administrators to define and assign schedules, as well as welfare checks, in the EVERYWHERE hub. This is done while being able to leverage multi-channel notifications with time-stamped location information. Examples of these multi-channel notifications are SMS, email, app notifications, and voice call.
These check-ins are able to be automated as well. Administrators are able to schedule automated check-ins for teams or individual team members with a user-defined geofence. A geofence is a virtual boundary established around a geographical location. This location-based service, utilised by apps or software, uses GPS, RFID, Wi-Fi or even cellular data in order to trigger a pre-programmed action, such as the check-in, when a mobile device or RFID tag triggers the virtual boundary. The team member/members are able to respond with “I’m OK” or “I need help” and their status as well as coordinates will be sent over the Iridium satellite network, cellular or Wi-Fi. This offers administrators information on which team members have checked in and which have not, as well as where they are.
Administrators are able to automate check-ins with their remote team members by using one of the two, new check-ins, namely geotargeted check-ins and team check-ins. Geotargeted check-ins are location defined check-ins suited for job sites or areas of interest. Team check-ins serve to manage check-in schedules for chosen teams and/or individuals. The Everywhere Hub has simplified the check-in procedure for administrators by giving them a detailed report of who they are responsible for and real-time status updates.
The EVERYWHERE Hub
The Everywhere Hub offered by EVERYWHERE communications offers real-time situational awareness as well as asset tracking by consolidating position, status, and message information and enabling data communication with two-way capable devices. The hub, which is accessible on EVERYWHERE inReach, allows users to know where their assets are and in which state they are in, which will ensure that their personnel can effectively manage remote operations.
The Hub offers features such as multi-device, multi-network, and EVERYWHERE Intelligent RoutingTM. Offering situational awareness, broadcast messaging SOS notification, as well as encrypted text, data, audio, and video, are all able to be managed through the EVERYWHERE Hub. Finally, the Hub offers tools for visualization, data filtering, and analytics, as well as third-party integration. Administrators use this web-based platform to communicate with their team and personnel in and out of the office, from absolutely anywhere.
