24-7 cloud-based monitoring
Blackline Safety’s cloud-based technology features GPS-enabled safety sensors and devices that leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to connect workers to live 24-7 command center monitoring. Provided as a hardware-enabled software-as-a-service (HeSaaS), the platform includes high-performance emergency response and evacuation management capabilities, as well as contract tracing – a feature launched just weeks after COVID-19 hit in March 2020, and offered free of charge to existing Blackline Safety customers.
In the next few months, for example, the company will be launching a line of smartphone apps designed to make monitoring affordable in countries where employee safety is not always a top budget line item, such as India, Brazil, the Middle East and Africa. In addition, it will be rolling out devices that enable live video streaming between employees in the field and experts who can provide direction or advice behind the scenes.
