Challenge

Securitas has a wide, dynamic customer base spanning multiple industries. To meet the rapidly expanding and evolving security requirements of their customers, Securitas looked to Wireless Logic to improve SIM and IoT solutions to provide a reliable connected service for lone workers, i.e. people who work alone and/or remotely who face a variety of environmental, medical, industrial or people risks on a daily basis. Lone workers need personal protective technology and Securitas needed a future proofed solution, with no risk of downtime, for evolving lone worker hardware, and non-steered roaming SIMs that can be monitored and managed in real time to maximise protection of the lone worker and also eliminate potential bill-shock.

Solution

Working with Securitas and by using the SIM Management Platform, SIMPro, Wireless Logic were able to analyse the quantity of voice minutes, the average amount of SMS used and monthly data requirements to create a bespoke tariff for the lone worker solutions.

In addition to providing aggregated data pools (with some additional allowance to avoid bill-shock), Wireless Logic provided a network agnostic non-steered roaming SIM, allowing the user to always have the strongest coverage across all major UK networks, rather than relying on a single fixed network SIM connection. With the overlaying Virtual Private Network (VPN) from Wireless Logic, Securitas are able to provide, smart, two-way connectivity to their customers, ensuring that any data generated from the lone worker solutions is always secure.

Outcome

Using IoT connectivity within lone worker devices, Securitas are able to provide an all-in-one, preventative solution including personal alarms and GPS technology. Businesses can access real time updates on lone workers, regardless of where they are located, and if needed can response quickly to alerts. This gives piece of mind for employers and employees as the ‘Always-On’ solution has no risk of downtime.
