Guardian24 has recently launched an Android version of its lone and mobile worker safety application, following the success of its original Blackberry-based version which is now used by over 33,500 lone and mobile workers.
The Guardian24 application lets users log their whereabouts and daily tasks, send GPS locations, raise alerts, and summon emergency help via a panic button on the smartphone, even if the keyboard is locked. The application also has a ‘listen live’ function which opens a communications channel with security services, giving up-to-date details about the user and their location so that appropriate action can be taken.
The analyst company Canalys recently reported that the Android platform has grown by almost 250 per cent in the last year and now has almost a 50 per cent share of the market.
Henry Woods, director, Guardian24, said, “Android smartphones are achieving a higher level of adoption in the enterprise market so we expect this to be a significant area of growth for us.”
