Callmy Announce Integration with Sentinel

Monitor LogoCallmy announce they are now an integration partner with Monitor Computer Systems

Monitor Computer Systems Ltd has been a premier supplier of the Sentinel alarm monitoring system to the UK and international markets since its founding in 1984. Their customers include major security companies, local authorities, telecoms companies, financial institutions and police authorities.

Sentinel has the ability to simultaneously monitor an organisation’s security equipment and systems, providing single point of management and control. Currently around 600,000 live signalling systems are monitored to the relevant British, European and US standards with software provided by Monitor Computer Systems.

The Callmy Alert SOS service is part of this portfolio and will offer Sentinel users the ability to triage Callmy Alert SOS activations and provide a new managed service option for our Lone Working capability.

The Callmy Alert personal SOS app enables organisations to comply with Health and Safety legislation whilst also looking after the wellbeing and welfare of their staff. The app is a great alternative to hardware based solutions and has the scope to introduce significant cost savings too!

Users can set a timer, in the app, that automatically activates their SOS alert if it is not cancelled. Alternatively, users can manually activate their Callmy Alert SOS if they are in a dangerous situation.

The activation instantly notifies a response team who can view the user’s contact details and locate them via their precise GPS coordinates. The end user can also be tracked to help direct security staff or the emergency services.

Additionally, the response team can access the microphone on the end users device, whilst the SOS is active, to listen to ambient noise at the scene – this helps to mobilise the most appropriate response.

All SOS usage and activation data is securely stored for audit and evidential purposes.

Callmy Alert – supporting your compliance with ISO22301

BCP ImageISO 22301, the standard for Business Continuity Management, emphasises the need for a well-defined incident response structure.

This ensures that when incidents occur, responses are escalated in a timely manner and people are empowered to take the necessary actions to be effective – section 8.4.3 of the standard details the requirements for a communication and warning system.

Callmy Alert is the idea service to support your Business Continuity communication and to ensure compliance. It is a simple to use service and provides a complete audit of all message activity and response – vital to help assess how situations were resolved and to refine future plans.

Covid-19 will probably mean business continuity plans will be reappraised and this could also be a great opportunity to consider how emergency communication can now be evolved.

Emergency Exercise on track for HORIBA MIRA using Callmy Alert

 

Being a global provider of pioneering engineering, research and test services to the automotive, defence, aerospace and rail sectors, HORIBA MIRA know the importance of emergency planning and preparedness.

With this in mind Callmy Alert was put to the test during an exercise, which involved HORIBA MIRA staff and a joint response from the West Midlands Fire and Ambulance services.

The test scenario was based around a vehicle accident on HORIBA MIRA’s proving ground and as this extends to some 100km is a challenging event to plan for.

Callmy Alert was used to help mobilise key responders and escalate communication to Bronze and Silver teams. Emergency messages were sent from emergency control directly to the Callmy Alert app. As the app is reserved for urgent situations, an open rate of 86% was achieved within a few minutes of sending – faster and more secure than email, WhatsApp or SMS and delivered with a complete audit trail via the Callmy Alert Management Portal.

HORIBA MIRA are now looking to use their Callmy Alert service to contact and locate first aiders, as well as deploying the desktop version of the app, to deliver urgent messages to locations where mobile phone use is not permitted.

The University of Worcester Going Places With Callmy Alert

University of Worcester LogoThe University of Worcester is deploying the Callmy Alert service to help students and staff stay safe while away from the Campus.

Callmy Alert provides a simple app, which staff and students can opt into to enable the University to locate those travelling locally, nationally and internationally, and to proactively send notifications of situations that may affect their travel security. Unlike other solutions of this nature, which use airline booking data to illustrate location, Callmy Alert provides active traveller tracking using GPS positioning available from the user’s mobile phone. This is also optimised to preserve battery life.

As Callmy Alert service includes a mass notification capability, information can be delivered to users that provide information about disruption or incidents in their location – this can also be geo fenced when required. Travellers can also respond to messages, or check in periodically to let the University know they are safe.

The University has complimented the service with the Callmy Alert Personal SOS capability, which is an integrated component of the app. If an individual is in a situation where they require assistance, they can activate an SOS Alert to notify the University, which can then respond accordingly.

The service will also be used to compliment the University’s campus security and the deployment is being supported by the Student Union.
