Reffind says ‘Are you ok’ with free emergency beacon launch

Listed employee experience technology company REFFIND (ASX:RFN) has expanded its product range with the launch of a free emergency beacon on its mobile platform that will let organisations check on employees during emergencies or catastrophic events.

The REFFIND emergency beacon sends an ‘are you ok?’ card to every employee’s phone, and the employee simply swipes right if they are okay, so employers know immediately if any of their staff need help.

Jamie Pride, co-founder and managing director, REFFIND, said, “Varying threats such as terrorism or natural disasters are significant causes for concern for companies. REFFIND saw the need for a concrete way for companies to help employees. The emergency beacon lets employers do a roll call of employees, fast. That means, if someone needs help, they can get it sooner.

“By implementing this feature companies can demonstrate they take their duty of care seriously. It’s an easy way to check employees are safe in case of emergency and ensure any support is directed to where it may be needed.”

“This is the fifth product launch for REFFIND since we started in 2014. It’s a natural add-on to the REFFIND suite of products which aim to provide a mobile, innovative way to collaborate with employees.”

The REFFIND emergency beacon is available now free for both Reffind’s new and existing clients.
