Lone worker safety system specialist Lookout Call has joined forces with mobile workforce management software provider Momote, in an innovative partnership that plays to both the companies’ strengths.
Lookout Call is a highly regarded lone worker safety system that is used by more than 18,000 lone workers throughout the UK. The mobile based software alerts colleagues if a lone worker is overdue from an appointment, or if emergency assistance is required. Momote, meanwhile, is a market leading provider of mobile workforce management software MyMobileWorkers – enabling real-time information exchange between an organisation and its employees in the field.
“Our software is typically used by lone workers who track and record job details, and carry out vehicle checks, remotely on their mobile phones,” said John Tonkin, director at Momote. “Lookout Call is geared very much to the same end user who spends a significant proportion of the day working alone. It was clear that a tie-in would benefit our clients, and allow both our companies to extend market reach.”
Brian Caddy, sales manager at Lookout Call, added: “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative company, and we hope that this combined partnership will fulfil the aspiration of both our businesses to be best of breed.”
The new partnership will see each business cross-selling the other’s mobile software as a separate interface – although integration is a possibility, depending on the level of customer demand.
