Introduction: WolMobile

WolMobile is an Android and iOS mobile app for employees and contractors. They can sign in or out, see important notices, receive push notifications, and request assistance by sending an SOS. 


How it works

WolMobile is a sign-in and out app for employees and contractors (service providers, suppliers, and vendors). It is designed to make it easier for your organization to maintain safe workplaces by ensuring it knows who is on-site and who is not. WolMobile enables organizations to alert their users of any incidents, hazards, or other safety or security issues as they enter or leave a location.

WolMobile features include: 

  • Manually sign in/out of a location – Users can sign in/out of any locations using WolMobile. They can also sign into specific zones and change their zones as they move about.
  • Tag yourself as working remotely – Users can sign in using the Work Remotely status.
  • Automatically sign in/out – Users automatically signed in/out of a location with a geofence.
  • Receive important notices on arrival or exit – Use the important notices feature to inform of an upcoming event or to remind them of specific responsibilities.
  • SOS alarm – Allow users to activate a request for assistance from their mobile, instantly sending their details and location to designated SOS Responders. Location services must be enabled and permission to use granted to send a user's location.
  • Visitor arrival push notifications – Employees can receive free push notifications to alert them whenever a visitor or other guest arrives on-site.
  • View an employee's or contractor's access summary – In WolMobile, a user can flip their phone to display their access summary to frontline staff. 

Minimum requirements

  • WolMobile is a native app to both iOS and Android and requires access to different phone services to fully operate including location services and push notifications.
