New Feature: Enhanced EVERYWHERE Check-ins

ANNAPOLIS, MD 02 February 2022 - A growing number of countries across the globe have enacted Duty of Care legislation that requires employers to provide employees operating in remote or hazardous areas with the tools needed to remain connected and safe. EVERYWHERE Communications provides global connectivity and situational awareness for Government and Enterprise organizations. Responding to the needs of their customers around the world, the EVERYWHERE team is offering new check-In capabilities (Scheduled & Remote Check-ins) to readily monitor remote personnel who are in and out of cellular coverage. These new features automate a previously arduous and time-consuming process.  

“Understanding our customers’ unique problems is our number one priority,” said Jake Bailey, VP of Product Management and Customer Success. “With that understanding, we are happy to announce our new Check-ins capabilities that provide increased confidence for administrators tasked with setting up the safety procedures and most importantly for the personnel operating in remote areas.”

Scheduled Check-ins give administrators the flexibility to tailor check-ins on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis to address the unique needs of their remote personnel. For example, a group of loggers are scheduled to be at a remote job site Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. An administrator can now schedule check-ins by both days of the week and the time of day; multiple check-ins may occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis as the situation evolves. Flexible check-in schedules simplify and streamline an essential element of the duty of care process.

Remote Check-ins provide remote personnel the flexibility and autonomy to create their own check-in recurrence directly on their Garmin inReach® device with Everywhere software. If an unexpected situation occurs while outside cellular coverage, remote personnel can initiate a new check-in schedule and feel confident that their safety is being closely monitored with any missed check-in or report of “not Safe” triggering an immediate EVERYWHERE hub alert, as well as multi-channel notifications (SMS, Email, automated voice call).

They can simply respond with “I’m OK” or “I need help” to send their status and coordinates over the Iridium satellite network, cellular or WiFi. You will know who has checked-in and who has not, as well as where they are. Giving you complete visibility on your teams anywhere in the world. Learn more

Article credit : Tim Fallon

ANNAPOLIS, MD 07 Jan 2021 - Covid-19 has ravaged the planet and every company wants to ensure their employees minimize risk of exposure. Contact tracing is an important tool to help with this. Organizations want to monitor their employees’ movements, especially when in a small, indoor, shared space. If a positive case comes back, administrators need to know who was in close contact, where, and when.

Geofencing used to monitor employees in buildings

With EVERYWHERE’s key feature Geofence alerts, customers can draw a geofence boundary around their various offices. Every time an employee using the EVERYWHERE App or inReach enters or exits the geofence (or office), a notification is triggered. If an employee does indeed test positive for Covid-19, administrators can track the notification flow and identify which of their other employees may need to be tested or quarantined. At EVERYWHERE, we are proud to play a part in controlling the global pandemic and reducing the spread of coronavirus.

EVERYWHERE Rescue at Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals

ATVs equipped with EVERYWHERE inReach by Garmin  

20 August 2020 - “At Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals, we are in the outdoor adventure business, and occasionally accidents happen. By partnering with EVERYWHERE Communications, we go the extra step to connect and protect the users of our equipment.

As part of our ATV rental program, we provide our customers with an EVERYWHERE inReach device by Garmin. Recently, I received notification that one of my customers, operating in a remote area of Colorado, had pushed the SOS button. EVERYWHERE notified me both within my EVERYWHERE App, showing where they were when they pressed the SOS button, and via a phone call from the GEOS emergency dispatchers. The GEOS operator notified me that there had been a rollover accident with injuries and had dispatched the sheriff and rescue personnel. On my way to the scene, I expected to be the first responder for our clients; however an ambulance passed me on the way and arrived on scene before me. The county sheriff had arrived long before me or the ambulance. Two patients were transported via ambulance, a third person was med-evaced out. The coordination with emergency services was simply impressive and efficient even in the back-country of Colorado. All of this occurred very quickly and was a result of the customer having the EVERYWHERE inReach by Garmin with them.

EVERYWHERE provides us with the confidence to fulfill our mission of providing safe access to outdoor adventures throughout the state of Colorado.” -Clay Bidwell, Owner/COO of Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals
