The implementation of lone worker protection services by public sector organisations is growing at an exceptional rate, the UK leads the way from its European counterparts and Berg Insight estimate that over half a million devices will be connected by 2022.
Procurement for Housing launched the inaugural lone worker protection services framework in 2015, enabling all public sector organisations to quickly and easily procure services from a range of suppliers. Direct contract awards can be made to the top ranked supplier or mini competitions can be run between all suppliers.
Following a rigorous tendering exercise, Alertcom were proud to be awarded as top ranked supplier for the second time running following significant annual growth over the course of the previous framework.
Elaine Wood, customer service manager at Alertcom commented; “We’re delighted to maintain our position as first ranked supplier, it’s been a pleasure working with PfH and their members. We’ve had some fantastic feedback from managers and front line staff who have used devices to summon emergency assistance in distressful situations”.
