MWC: Lone worker app for Blackberry launched

A lone worker app for Blackberry devices has been launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The app keeps track of workers' whereabouts and can be used by employers to monitor their workforce's location and to keep lone workers safe.

The app, known as Guardian24, allows users to log their whereabouts and daily tasks, send GPS locations and raise an alert in a time of need. Emergency help can be summoned by pressing a panic button on the smartphone, even if the keyboard is locked. It also has a "listen live" function when in Alert mode, allowing security services to listen in.

Geoff Hayter, Guardian24 executive director said: "Lone and mobile working can be an essential part of an organisation's drive for greater efficiency and cost control. Providing these employees with lone worker support services is essential if employers are to meet their responsibilities under health and safety legislation.'
