The Facilities module lets you add the static locations of your office, factory, warehouse, store, or other points of interest to the system, along with a list of all facility contacts working at that specific facility. This is a great complement to the other two position types available in Safeture – dynamic locations through the Safeture app and future locations through travel booking data.
Facilities are configured with a radius, used to specify the size of the area around the facility that you wish to be notified of any incidents happening. If an incident intersects with the facility radius, the system will alert administrators of that potential threat. You can then communicate with all facility contacts near the incident simultaneously to confirm their well-being.
Facility tags let you organize and sort all facilities in a particular country by type or any other distinguishing feature. You name the tags yourself and assign them to selected facilities.
Any user connected to a facility is called a facility contact and can be connected to one or more facilities. They are all displayed under the contacts tab for each facility. A facility contact does not need to have access to the Safeture Mobile Application. Instead, they can be contacted through SMS or email in case of an incident.
You can also distinguish managers from your other facility contacts by ticking the Management box for the users with such a role.
