In everyday life and unexpected situations

Ready-made templates are created in Secapp for various disturbances and unexpected situations. Templates include e.g. persons and groups to be alerted, the priority of the situation, a description of the situation and instructions for action, as well as possible escalation chains. Individual contact information, qualifications, and alert groups (e.g., service, first aid, security) are managed with Secapp’s tools.

In the event of a fault or an unexpected situation, Secapp will issue a mass alert using ready-made alert templates. The alert is sent via multiple communication channels (e.g. mobile application, text message, robotic call) to all persons defined in the message template, regardless of whether the person has an older phone or a smartphone.

In the case of a high-priority alert, Secapp bypasses the phone’s silent settings on Android and iPhone phones. All recipients of the message can respond to the alert (OK/NOK) and indicate whether they can participate in the situation or not.

  • Informing and alerting personnel and students (IT failure, parking lot out of use, threatening person on the area, etc.)
  • Delivering safety info for exchange students traveling abroad

A real-time situational awareness forms for the person who made the alert. Secapp shows which alerted persons are available and responding to the situation. The operation manager can share more information in the conversation with the entire group.

Secapp is used as an alert and dispatching system e.g. when a replacement employee is needed for a work shift due to a sudden absence.

Secapp chat allows text, pictures, videos, and files to be shared securely. The chat function is very convenient for everyday instant messaging as well as handling unexpected situations. In addition, the video connection can be used to handle e.g. consultations and inspections or to transmit additional information remotely.

With the OneClick button, an alert can be made directly on the screen of one’s own phone with a single push of a button, and the dead man’s switch will automatically send an alert if the device does not detect movement for a specified time (e.g. 1 minute).
