Lauren Innovations Launches NaviGate Mobile Appplication
Lauren Innovations has launched a new mobile application for the NaviGate Critical Information System. With this new application, users will be able to gain access to the NaviGate system via smartphone or tablet for even faster access to essential information, including emergency call lists, documents, incident synopsis reports, site and building plans, and live camera feeds. “We’ve taken the concept of anytime, anywhere to a whole new level,” states Brandon Tylke, software architect for NaviGate and designer of the mobile application. “NaviGate has always been available on any web-enabled device, but the mobile app offers users an abbreviated version of the system that transitions seamlessly into NaviGate’s Web-based system. An officer on a university campus can log an incident in real-time using the mobile app and have the incident waiting for him in the office to prepare the full report as soon as he walks in the door from his rounds.” Anyone with an existing NaviGate license will be able to log into the mobile site using the same username and password as the standard Website. In an emergency situation, a first responder with NaviGate access can arrive at a facility already linked into their live camera feeds or site and building plans with a pro-active plan to control the situation. Additionally, access to the document management portal and virtual binders can give an HR Manager immediate access to policies and procedures, a plant manager the complete lock-out/tag-out procedures in the event of equipment malfunction, or event-day evacuation instructions to contracted vendors and personnel. “When a pipe bursts at 3:00 a.m. and the person working the night shift is brand new and can’t find the shut-off valve, the mobile application becomes invaluable,” commented Chris Feller, safety director at Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio. “With the mobile application, I can look up the location of the correct shut-off valve on the floor plans using my tablet all the while talking my employee through the process. By the time I arrive on-site I’m already in the clean-up and damage assessment process and not scrambling to find a binder or schematic. In this instance, the mobile application not only saves time, but it also could save thousands in damages.” The mobile site, mobile.laureninnovations.com, has been tested on the current available smartphone and tablet platforms.
