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.
