Beale & Co Solicitors had previously utilised an incident notification company; however, it became crucial for us to have the ability to communicate with our staff using a mobile app, rather than solely relying on desktop notifications. We were in search of a solution that offered simplicity and ease of use, along with an acknowledgment function that would provide reassurance regarding the safety of our staff.
Beale & Co not only utilises the Crises Control platform to send physical incident notifications to its staff but also leverages the platform for communication during various other situations such as IT issues. The timing of implementing the Crises Control platform proved fortuitous, we encountered an incident soon after the implementation was completed. Despite the challenge, we successfully communicated with our staff using the platform and were able to request acknowledgments, ensuring effective information dissemination and response during the incident.
