At Ok Alone we love working with other companies and seeing how our solution and their product can work together to create something wonderful!
WhatsApp is one of the formats Monitors can be contacted in if a worker misses a check in or requests help. Monitors are sent a message through WhatsApp detailing who has requested help and at what time. They are also sent a link that will take them to their Ok Alone dashboard that has a detailed map of the worker’s real time location.
Zoleo Satellite Devices
We have partnered with ZOLEO to provide an option for workers to use their satellite device the help stay safe, no matter where they are on the planet. Using the Ok Alone solution connected to Zoleo, you can update your status even when outside cell coverage. A Zoleo device allows lone workers to have a specific number so workers can easily be identified when updating their status.
Teaming up with what3words on locations was a no brainer! This feature gives a three meter square plot with its own three word coordinates that can be shared or navigated to. On the Ok Alone dashboard that Monitors see is a map with the worker’s location. Underneath the map is the option to get the what3words position and coordinates.

When Ok Alone is installed and workers have registered an account using a Worker ID, it will be possible to use shortcuts to Siri. These short cuts allow workers to ‘Open Ok Alone, ‘Start Shift’, Check In’, ‘Get Help’ or ‘End Shift.’
A Spot device can be linked to an Ok Alone account using Spot’s Data Push feature. This allows users with a Spot device to be able to check-in to the Ok Alone system with their device. Users can also start and end shifts, and communicate with their monitor depending on the capabilities of the Spot device they are using and the user’s current Spot Plan.
