AlertMedia, a provider of emergency communication solutions, has announced the launch of several new mobile app features designed to keep today’s hybrid workforce and anywhere workers safe and connected to their organization while traveling, working remotely, or on the go.

Employees of organizations with an AlertMedia account can now access real-time information about emerging threats happening anywhere in the world through the AlertMedia mobile app, with the option also to leverage dynamic location tracking to receive instantaneous threat intelligence alerts about environmental hazards, crime, and other potentially dangerous incidents happening nearby. Additionally, through a new partnership with GeoSure, employees can access detailed neighborhood and city-level safety scores for any work or travel destination to help them better understand their surroundings when in unfamiliar places. 

“With employees working from locations all over the world, often away from a traditional office, it’s much harder to identify unpredictable events that threaten their safety and productivity. Our new normal demands that we evolve how we’re keeping employees safe and connected, wherever they are,” said Brian Cruver, CEO and Founder at AlertMedia. “Our recent mobile app enhancements provide a powerful way for employers to ensure their people understand what’s going on around them while also providing a direct line to help during an emergency.”

AlertMedia’s new mobile features create a more direct connection between employers and workers while enabling employees to play an active role in making informed decisions that impact their well-being. With access to 24/7, location-aware intelligence alongside region-specific safety scores from GeoSure, employees can more easily assess, evaluate, and navigate evolving incidents and unfamiliar travel locations to avoid potential threats that present safety risks.
