New Active Track mobile app is available

by Andy Clutton

Guard Tour has announced the launch of a new mobile app which offers employers and lone worker employees increased security with GPS tracking in real time, two-way communication, panic and man-down functions, and live alerts. As with Active Track handheld devices, the mobile app will allow employees to stay informed on the movements of any patrol worker in real time, and the communication features will allow the control room to make direct contact with a lone worker, whether that be to inform them of any missed patrol points or to provide reassurance that assistance is on the way should the panic button be activated

“We’ve seen a marked increase in demand for mobile-friendly solutions over the course of the last few years,” says Mark Parry, Managing Director at Guard Tour. “We recognise that not every workforce will require robust hardware in the form of the Active Track device, nor does every company have the budget to set aside for such an investment. Our new app provides a convenient solution, without compromising on features and functionality.”

“Our priority when developing the new app was to offer a flexible solution for every workforce, which is why the app is not only fully compatible with Android operating systems, but it has also been developed to operate with the same software as the Active Track device, allowing clients to integrate it into their existing guard tour system. A client might choose to issue the more durable handsets for some patrols, with the option to use the mobile app for patrols where there is less risk of damage to the device.”
