Lone Worker - apps, devices for small charity

Post by Indy » Wed Aug 14, 2019 10:27 am

Hi all

We have a few colleagues who travel solo to events and we use a buddy system for them. Where they don't have a nominated person, their line manager acts as buddy but as we grow, we're finding that being on call all weekend and out of hours is getting a bit unreasonable and we're looking to find either a service or an app that would serve two things - to act as the buddy system - so departure and arrival is recorded, and then a response service if someone needs to raise an alarm.

Any recommendations? We're a small charity so not got lots of cash but something I'll fight for budget on.

Thanks

Yes! This is a great app and I circulated it to the team a couple of weeks ago.
