More detail on new features and improvements.

Press and Hold Panic Button

One of the main features of GuardianMPS is the panic button and we’ve made it easier to use and introduced a new press and hold feature which will only raise an alarm when the button is held in until the commit indicator “fills” (3 secs)  This means minimal purse or pocket activations and will reduce the number of false or accidental alarms.

On Screen Help

We’ve incorporated a fully detailed help section for each page and section of the app ensuring you know what’s happening and how everything works.

Safety Check Status Indicator

A handy status bar now gives “at a glance” information on all check ins and  overruns  – allowing them to take action and de-escalate as appropriate.

On Screen Check in to Safety Checks

All GuardianMPS users can now set their Safety Checks and leave details and durations using the on screen keyboard and number selector controls.

Improved Location Controls

It is essential that GuardianMPS knows the most up to date GPS location information for mobile workers in order to inform emergency responders. Now it is possible to update location manually with the click of the send button. This is good practice for example if a user knows they’ve been in or are about to enter a poor signal area/building.

Further enhancements to the mapping and location screens include:

Show my location toggle  –  allowing a reset of the map to center on a worker’s location regardless of scrolling or zooming status.

Satellite and road view toggle – the view can be changed to show local terrain and buildings or simplified to routes and roads.
