A PropTech firm claims it will improve the security of estate agents and other lone workers through a new app and location data system.
Safepoint allows employers to monitor their lone workers' safety via an app and a so-called Guardian Portal viewable through a web browser.
When lone workers create tasks on the app, they automatically share live data such as their location. From the portal, team members or an employer can easily monitor activities - if the worker triggers an alert or shows signs of being in danger, the team is instantly notified.
Safepoint chief executive Callum Coombes says alternative systems aimed at offering greater security to agents and other lone workers have been “buggy, ugly, and difficult to use.”
