Vismo Global Tracking Solutions has announced the availability of Vismo Incident Management, which allows organizations to alert traveling staff to incidents that are a threat or potential threat to their well-being.
Alerts are sent to traveling staff members in relevant areas via the company’s mass notification system, direct from its portal.
Effective immediately, the Vismo Incident Management service integrates external data incident feeds into the portal.
This ensures that users of the Vismo Global Traveller App in any affected area are automatically identified, and then rapidly notified via mass notification.
Vismo users can respond to notifications through the app, sending their safety status and other information to the portal.
Operations teams use the portal for monitoring and aiding travelers in crisis and potential crisis situations, regardless of where those users are in the world.
“A vital contribution to the success of our incident management is the precise location of any user of the app,” explains Colin Dale, Director of Global Sales, Vismo Global Tracking Solutions.
“Location precision is a longstanding hallmark of the app, which uses our own patented technology to maximize location accuracy.
“That, combined with the ability of incident management to alert users, via mass notification, within seconds of an incident occurring, keeps the company and the app users at the global forefront of traveller protection.”
(What is the Vismo Global Traveler App? Vismo is a location tracking application designed to locate individuals traveling the world using their smartphone, tablet or personal location trackers. Vismo uses GPS and other technologies to provide the best GPS tracking updates even indoors. Geo-fence and panic button alerts allow your security team to track, protect and respond to employees as they travel to high-risk areas. The Vismo tracking system has patented technology that works globally on GSM, 3G, 4G LTE, 5G, WCDMA and CDMA networks.

Mass notification is the quickest way for users of the Vismo App to be alerted to occurring incidents.
To help ensure that mass notification operates optimally, the notifications are sent via multiple channels including SMS, email, in-app and phone call, targeting the individual not just the device.
“Using multi-paths ensures that communications can be maintained even in the event of outages or network contention issues,” says Dale.
“And because our app operates on smartphones, tablets, personal GPS trackers, satellite trackers or satellite phones, users are assured of true global coverage depending on the device they are using and any rare outage.”
The Vismo Incident Management System allows operation teams to identify travelers efficiently in a crisis.
After automatically locating travelers, the system prompts operation teams to immediately action assigned and definable tasks, accordingly.
This technological advancement allows Vismo to tell you who needs assistance within seconds of an incident occurring.
Integrated live intelligence feeds from external sources into Vismo enables operations teams to monitor and manage travelers in incident areas using one platform.

Integrated Mass Notifications allows security teams to immediately notify and globally communicate with travelers in the affected area.
Multi-path messaging ensures communication can be maintained even in the event of outages or network contention.
A person search in the affected area is conducted, ensuring operation teams account for all affected travelers.
An Incident Dashboard displays the incident location with the identified travelers in the location.
All travelers responses from the Mass Notification with their safety status can be viewed here.
If a traveller enters the identified incident location, they will also receive the Mass Notification informing them of the situation. Additionally to this, there is no further battery drainage for the Incident Management System.
Within Incident Management, the privacy of the user is constantly maintained; operational staff are only given key information to assist the the traveller.
