  • PageOne launches secure Smartphone Messaging & Lone Worker App

    London, 13 November, 2012 - PageOne Communications, the UKs leading

    provider of mobile messaging solutions to the public and enterprise sectors, today

    announced the launch of its Responder Smartphone App for BlackBerry, Apple iOS

    and Android devices. Responder offers resilient closed-user group messaging for

    organisations looking to improve operational efficiency and ensure important

    messages and alerts reach Smartphone users quickly and securely.

    Capitalising on the strengths of the 2-way Responder Pager, the Responder app

    extends 2-way pagings core alerting features to the Smartphone world to provide a

    separate secure messaging channel. With distinctive pop-up and audible alerting, a

    separate Inbox and 2-way reply options the Responder App ensures important real-

    time operational and emergency messages rise above the clutter of everyday email

    and SMS. Users can also be sure messages are delivered read and responded to by

    individuals or large groups.

    The ever increasing amount of email and SMS messages received on mobile devices

    means critical operational messages can often be missed, says Nigel Gray, Director,

    PageOne Communications. Responder separates and elevates operational

    messaging and alerting, and leverages two-way and GPS capability to assist in the

    real-time management and direction of field resource.

    As well as supporting GPS location services, Responder incorporates a Status Update

    facility that allows staff to indicate their current availability, allowing more intelligent,

    targeted messaging, for example only sending to those staff currently available, or

    directing staff nearest to an incident.

    The Responder app also offers optional Lone Worker features to provide additional

    support and peace-of-mind for field-based operatives. As well as an SOS alert

    button, the Lone Worker mode delivers a periodic welfare-check alert which must be

    acknowledged by the user, without which an SOS alert including a GPS location is

    automatically generated.

  • PageOnes Responder messaging service requires no server/network hardware or

    software to be installed or maintained, and seamlessly integrates fully with

    PageOnes award-winning Connect and Flare Cloud-based messaging suite and other

    third party systems.
