The nascent North American personal safety markets have been growing quickly in recent years. New legislation and regulation in the US and Canada has generated a greater level of employer focus on protecting people and an appreciation for how this can be facilitated through software and the internet of things.
Ok Alone have been well placed to serve this growing market, with their app-based service supporting businesses across North America. The acquisition expands the business’ geographical footprint, making Peoplesafe a truly global provider of personal safety technology.
This expansion comes at an opportune time, coinciding with Peoplesafe’s launch of market-leading software platform, Nexus – a pioneering new cloud-hosted software platform that enables customers to proactively manage personal safety risk across their business.
The multi-tenanted platform is a single point of management and information for serious EHS incidents in a company and provides insightful reports and actionable data to aid customers in understanding and measuring the risks that their people face. This allows employees to put mitigating actions in place, in order to drive improved personal safety, security and productivity.
Nexus has been instrumental in enabling this expansion, as this revolutionary platform offers the capacity to extend Peoplesafe’s expertise into new geographies. The acquisition of Ok Alone alongside the new platform launch provides Peoplesafe with more of a global reach by facilitating its first entry into the North American market.
