The app runs smoothly in the background alerting lone workers when a check in is due. The lone worker app also offers a battery saver mode for location monitoring.

Lots of lone worker solutions offer live monitoring, where a call centre can monitor your lone workers. However, Ok Alone’s solution allows you to turn off the live monitoring when you don’t need it. This saves you additional fees when you have a monitor in your own company available. Lots of our customers love this feature, it is the solution to monitoring their lone workers at night.

Check in alerts are timed and may occur when your lone worker is on the move or is busy with their hands. Luckily Ok Alone has the solution.

This means your worker can set up Ok Alone so they can check in using their voice – hands free.
4. Easy to use for Workers
