East Allenheads Estate

About our customer

East Allenheads Estates comprises of three estates (East Allenhead, Muggleswick and Stublick) spread out over a large geographical area in the picturesque county of Northumberland. East Allenheads and Mugglewick Estates are two of the most prestigious and highly rated grouse shooting estates in the UK.

Along with the many accolades that the estates have received for shoots and their unparalleled hosting, the team lead by Steve Colmer are committed to responsible land management. When the shooting season is finished the gamekeepers spend their time managing the land to ensure the sustainable population of birds and conserve the land. It is for this reason that Steve and the owners wanted to ensure the safety of their highly skilled team.

The business critical issue

The East Allenhead Estates team place great importance on the Health and Safety of their employees. Therefore Trackplot’s solution was recommended as it could ensure lone worker safety, even in the absence of phone signal.
The team needed a solution that would monitor workers that were spread out across large areas. The system also had to allow workers to raise the alarm for assistance in non-medical and medical emergencies. The team were also looking for a system they could monitor internally.

How Trackplot helped

Trackplot visited the Estates and carefully considered the team’s requirements. The technology was then catered to meet the needs of the team. The technology allowed the staff to see the whereabouts of other contractors and notifications to be sent to particular management team members for escalation.

“The Trackplot system allows a catered approach to lone worker monitoring. The system allows workers to raise an alarm should they find themselves in difficulty and monitor the whereabouts of colleagues. I look forward to using Trackplot technology in the future.”
