For over a decade, TRUCE has partnered with companies to eliminate digital distractions. Specifically, TRUCE senses context around a worker to enable mobile apps that are beneficial to the worker, preventing distracted driving and other risks (Contextual Mobility Management). Now, with the release of TRUCE Connected Worker Solutions, TRUCE has broadened its scope to include lone worker safety.
For companies with distributed teams and lone workers, it can be a challenge to guarantee their safety – especially across multiple locations or in isolated areas. In fact, one in three frontline workers report feeling unsafe on the job, and almost one in five lone worker professionals report having an accident and struggling to get help. TRUCE Connected Worker Solutions helps ensure that frontline employees are protected and have the backup and support that they need. Solutions live in a mobile-technology enabled safety hub that allows supervisors to monitor worker safety, communicate to specific groups and intervene.
“Lone frontline workers don’t know what they will face when they knock on the next customer door or approach the next job site,” said Bethany Brownholtz, Marketing Director at TRUCE Software. “Companies can’t avoid all risks in a dynamic, decentralized workplace, but they can be better prepared to address unexpected challenges with mobile technology.”
Given that 97% of employees carry at least one mobile device with them at work, mobile technology is a logical avenue to increase worker safety and streamline operations. TRUCE Connected Worker Solutions leverages mobile technology to provide users with these capabilities in one app:
- Event Escalation and Response begins safety check-ins when workers arrive at their job site. TRUCE escalates messages to the correct person when urgent operations and safety related situations occur in the field so that workers get timely assistance.
- Enterprise Messaging and Communication enables supervisors to contact specific teams or individuals with relevant, targeted messages based on their job roles, geographic location, surrounding threats and other parameters.
“With TRUCE Connected Worker Solutions, lone workers and distributed teams are set up for success when the unexpected happens. They may be out there alone, but they are no longer on their own,” said Chad Howell, VP Product Management at TRUCE Software. “We are incredibly excited that TRUCE now accompanies the worker throughout their entire work day to offer consistent protection and access to help.” With the release of Connected Worker Solutions, TRUCE Software is the only company to combine the capabilities of Contextual Mobility Management with a connected worker platform for frontline associates and field teams.
