In a world where incidents happen every day, organisations need to ensure they can effectively communicate and provide critical information to remote employees when they need to.
Few people work in one static place, so organisations need to ensure they can directly contact the individual, no matter where they are working. With many organisations implementing a hybrid working model, employees can be located in many different areas. Some mobile staff may be regularly checking their emails, and others less frequently, so it is important to ensure effective communication using a system that sends messages through multiple delivery methods.
Whether an incident is a natural disaster, terrorist event, power outage or general company update, organisations need to immediately inform employees with essential information. By ensuring employees are kept up to date, they are in a better position to understand the situation and follow company policy as required. Increased communication can help enhance employee’s confidence as they have a better understanding of the risk and can make better informed decisions. Employees also gain peace of mind, knowing they can be contacted via multiple channels in the event of an emergency and assistance will be provided.
In an incident, organisations need to quickly locate and identify who requires assistance. By implementing a mass notification system, organisations can quickly find those in the vicinity of an incident and focus hard on their safety. Employers can better manage and mitigate their risk, this provides organisations with an effective communication plan, therefore ensuring business continuity, all with a full audit trail.
From the increase in requests from clients and to better equip organisations, Vismo has announced the launch of Vismo Notify. An easy to use and reliable platform for organisations to immediately notify all members of staff. Notify enables organisations to efficiently communicate with staff members, whether this is during an incident or updating them with a new company policy. Irrespective of geographic range, large scale or highly localised, all staff members can be notified of an incident based on their proximity to that risk.
The Vismo Notify App is downloaded and activated on the employee’s smartphone or tablet and once activated, the App works in the background of the device. Organisations can send notifications to employees through the Vismo Secure Portal.
Craig Swallow, Vismo CEO, said: “Events and incidents can have a significant impact on organisations and employees, through both risk and financial perspectives. Vismo Notify enables organisations to be prepared, when an incident does occur, they have an easy-to-use system to communicate with staff members. Think of this an insurance policy, organisations can focus on providing accurate and critical information that mobile employees require and help them to safety. Uninsured organisations are likely to pay a higher price for an incident that affects them.”
Employers have flexibility and full control over the message content and how this is delivered to the individual. The notifications can be sent via In-App, Email, SMS, or Text to Voice. All these options can be selected and continuously sent until a message is responded to if required. This ensures the individual can be reached no matter where they are, whether they are at their office desk or out meeting clients. Designated teams can then monitor the responses through the Vismo Secure Portal and provide assistance.
Vismo Notify is designed to help protect all employees, no matter where they are based or travelling. By using multiple delivery methods, staff members can be reached effectively. Employees gain peace of mind knowing they can be contacted in the event of an emergency.
