How do I use Trackplot Mobile?

Trackplot Mobile is available for both smartphone and basic mobile phone users.

Trackplot Mobile users have the same full Trackplot Portal experience as Trackplot World users.

Each time a lone worker uses any of the Trackplot Mobile features, such as Check-in, Check-out or Assistance Required, their message is sent to the Trackplot Portal. Each message is time stamped and includes their GPS location or postcode to aid any emergency response and enable incident auditing.

Easily accessible, Trackplot Mobile can be used wherever you have mobile phone coverage.

For smartphone users – Trackplot Mobile App

The Trackplot Mobile App is available for both iPhone and Android devices.

Packed with high-tech features, the Trackplot Mobile App quickly transforms your smartphone into an effective lone worker safety device.

For basic mobile phone users

Trackplot Mobile can be used on a basic mobile phone using SMS messaging. A range of short SMS commands allow the lone worker to communicate with the Trackplot Portal without the Trackplot Mobile App.

Trackplot Mobile enables your lone workers to easily keep in touch whilst they work.
