EVERYWHERE Communications

Helps With Remote Worker Safety and Duty of CareEverywhere

EVERYWHERE Communications’ software check-in capabilities can help monitor remote personnel who are in and out of cell coverage. Scheduled Check-ins give administrators the ability to tailor check-ins on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis to address the unique needs of remote personnel and help simplify the duty of care process. Remote Check-ins allow personnel to create their own check-in recurrence directly when paired with a Garmin inReach device with EVERYWHERE software. If an unexpected situation occurs while outside cellular coverage, remote personnel can feel confident that their safety is being monitored even if they miss a check-in; initiate a new check-in schedule; or send a “not safe” report that triggers an alert and multi-channel notifications via SMS, email and automated voice call.
