Lone Worker Tracking System Based on Blackberry Devices

Redweb Technologies : 05 February, 2010  (New Product)
RedWeb releases tracking software for use on Blackberries to enable real time tracking of vulnerable workers and incorporates panic alerts
Lone Worker Tracking System Based on Blackberry Devices
RedWeb Security, a specialist provider of forensic and tracking security solutions, has launched a tracking device for Blackberry. The Blackberry Tracker is designed for use by companies with teams of lone workers (such as estate agents, couriers and utilities service engineers, for example), and lets them track where employees are at any given time using RedWeb's tracking software. The tracker - suitable for use with any GPS (Global Positioning System) enabled Blackberry - also features a real-time panic alert which locates the position of the Blackberry to within three metres.

Users download the software to their Blackberry, which sends positional data via GPRS to a web-based tracking platform, delivering real time tracking information and panic alerts. This allows employers to be in control of their most valuable resource. A live track is done every one or five minutes, with a panic alarm that can be activated as needed to give an instant location report. Users can switch off the tracking software when it is not needed. Blackberry devices are particularly suited to tracking software, as they have excellent battery performance, sensitive FPS antenna and strong build quality.

Chris Taylor, operations and new product director for RedWeb, says: "Employers have a duty of care to lone workers, to keep them safe. This is the most effective way to do that. The tracker also lets businesses manage their productivity levels efficiently. For example, if you know that you have a service engineer in a particular area, and you have an emergency call out near by, you can match the two together."

RedWeb has a number of tracking devices, suitable for all situations from lone workers, to heavy plant tracking. It works closely with the police, and its tracking devices are police-approved (all RedWeb's products are accredited by Secured by Design, an initiative that ensures security equipment meets police standards).
