Increasingly employees are spending time working remotely, or away from their desks, and this can cause problems when it comes to contacting them during an emergency or crisis. Similarly, how do your management team and stakeholders get critical messages out when they are not in their usual places of work? Having a mobile app could be the answer.
If you have employees who are regularly out in the field working remotely, or who may not always have access to their usual working systems such as internal telephones or emails, it can be a challenge to make sure that they receive messages critical to their safety and productivity in an effective and timely manner.
Similarly, if you are not able to contact your team, how do you know that they are safe? Gathering responses in an emergency allows you to plan where your response needs to be centred and provide aid if necessary.
By using an emergency notification system that has a mobile-first philosophy such as Klaxon, you can ensure that you can reach your people wherever they are with push notifications directly to their smart device assuring you that your messages have been delivered. Furthermore, if a response is required, the app allows your employees to respond there and then so that you can accurately see how much of your workforce is affected, and how.
So now that we’ve covered getting your message received, how do you send emergency messages when your management or stakeholder team may not be in the office, or the event happens out of hours?
Once again, a mobile-first solution probably has the answer. The Klaxon app allows the administrators of your system to create and send notifications using your template library in just a few clicks or taps, ensuring that you can get your message out wherever and whenever it is required. The app also collects and shows your administrators who have responded to a notification to allow them to co-ordinate a response, even if they are not at their usual place of work.
Alongside the emergency capabilities, the Klaxon app also allows your whole team to see any planned maintenance or ongoing incidents on the dashboards in the app, ensuring that they stay connected and informed regardless of their physical location.
As we have discussed, having a mobile-first solution can mean that your entire team can stay safe and productive by ensuring messages are received anytime and anywhere.
