About 3700 Municipal Government exist in Canada. Each of them have lots of departments. This makes implementing any new system a challenge. A lone worker safety system is no different.
For example, City of Surrey in British Columbia, Canada wanted to satisfy every department’s needs. However, each had different technical capabilities. Parks and Recreation had old flip phones. Wastewater had smartphones and Utilities used land lines. Finding a system that worked with all three was key. Each department also needed to check-in at different frequencies. The system needed to give them this control too.
Hard-pressed to find a solution that would provide all three check-in methods and the ability to adjust check-in intervals, City of Surrey decided to trial Ok Alone. What they discovered was how simple it was for their workers to check-in via text, app and phone call. They also learned they’d have more than enough control to align check-in intervals with their different departments.
Determining that all department’s needs had been satisfied, City of Surrey decided to get setup with their own account. They’ve found a good fit with their Ok Alone solution. Workers now feel safe and they can easily meet their compliance obligations.
The majority of people find the Ok Alone app suits their way of working best. Here are some of the reason why.
