In the event of an emergency, safeREACH automatically alerts all key personnel and provides you with comprehensive support in emergency and crisis management, such as the distribution of information.
In contrast to tedious alerting with phone lists, with safeREACH you alert with one click via the app or via our user interface on the desktop/in the browser.
The alerted persons receive the alarm via app, SMS, or email and can immediately give feedback.
In addition, checklists and documents can be stored in safeREACH, which are available immediately after the alarm has been triggered.
To coordinate quickly with everyone, you can communicate securely and quickly via group messages or connect immediately with all participants using the telephone conference function.
