Mobile GPS Tracking capability on JCB ruggedized mobile phones

Vismo Mobile GPS Tracking is now available on JCB ruggedized mobile phones for GPS tracking in inhospitable areas of the world.


November 13th, 2012. Vismo GPS tracking installed on the JCB Toughphone Pro-Smart is ideal for organisations operating in harsh, inhospitable, high risk areas of the World. Aimed at the Oil and Exploration market and those organisations involved in construction in high risk areas, the Vismo/Pro-Smart combination is robust and ready for action in environments where other handsets would be unsuitable. The JCB handset has IP67 certification and is both water and dust proof with the bulky shell protecting delicate innards from unfortunate bumps and drops.

Installing Vismo on the JCB Toughphone enables your security team to track, protect and respond to employees as they travel to higher-risk areas of the world. Vismo provides regular GPS locations direct to a secure web platform as well as the ability to view current locations and historical trails. Each smart phone has a panic button which triggers E-mail and SMS alerts in real time to key contacts along with a 20 second covert audio recording from the device.

The ability to pin-point a member of the team on the ground and correlate their position, respective to high risk areas, is key to maintaining the safety and security of individuals. Additionally, if a member of staff finds themselves in a crisis situation, the ability to locate the exact position and give appropriate advice is vital and could save lives. Precise GPS location fixes and the availability of historical trails during crisis situations around the world has resulted in many organisations turning to Vismo as a method of ensuring their employees stay safe.

Full access demonstrations are available directly from Vismo.
