There are many ways to use the OK Alone lone worker solution: app, SMS, landline, satellite phone and desktop. This last one is perhaps the least well known.
For lone workers who work remotely, not necessarily out and about, but based in one location, the desktop version of the Ok Alone system is perfect. This is a progressive web app which will work in most modern browsers.
The solution offers desktop check ins and all the same features as the app but is not reliant on a phone battery.
Lone workers can open the solution in a separate tab and have it accessible all day from their pc or laptop while they work. When the reminder alert sounds workers can use the desktop check in with minimal disruption to let monitors know they are all right.
Our web app is available at https://app.okalone.net with a Windows version coming soon.
