What Are The Benefits of FocalPoint?

With our system the manager and the guard are automatically contacted saving time by putting the manager on early alert that there might be a problem whilst avoiding the time and cost of at least two phone calls not to mention the cost of the control room.

We created this product for ourselves and quickly recognised how similar the needs of other companies managing a mobile workforce were to ours.

The hidden additional benefit was the savings we made by terminating the contract with our control room providers.

Traditional control rooms make check calls and follow the escalation process if there is a no show. This results in additional phone call charges until eventually a manager is contacted and he then calls the missing guard and if necessary arranges cover.

We have a wide range of customers and a mobile transient work force. Due to the nature of our sector we need to be able to access and deploy a qualified work force literally within minutes because with very little notice we may require up to 200 workers in one or more locations in the UK. Our sector is licensed so automatic validation of workers licenses is crucial if we are to avoid falling foul of licensing law.  

We knew that in order to do this we needed some form of gadget and initially thought about distributing PDA ‘s but with less than 24 hrs notice for many assignments and a significant churn within the workforce this was impractical. The fact that Smart Phone ownership is high and increasing it made sense to create the app as this would address all our problems.
