Location timestamp in email: "Personnel in incident region"

To provide administrators with more information about the user when an alert has been published near him/her, we have added a column called Last location report to the “Personnel in Incident Region” email.

This part of the email contains a timestamp of when the last known location report was received from the end user’s mobile application, together with the time zone.

Recently, we have begun a journey towards strengthening our risk intelligence, starting with our alerts. For this release, we have increased the number of risk categories, going from 10 to 21 categories.

Safeture Updates March 2022

Updated high-risk widgets in Dashboard

We have updated the widgets containing information on high-risk incidents and users/facilities potentially at risk. The new design gives a clearer overview and makes sure the dashboard is not flooded with too much information at once, for example during large-scale incidents with numerous published alerts at once.

Some of the Web Portal’s terms have been changed to improve the consistency in terminology across the platform. Below you see some examples: 

“Personnel” has been changed to “User.”

Safeture Updates December 2021

Email of Risk Level Changes

Whenever a risk level changes in the Safeture system, either when Safeture default risk levels change or when an Administrator overrides a risk level, the system can send out notifications via email to different users. For travelers that has not yet started their trip, the pre-trip email is re-sent with additional information highlighting the risk level change.

Alerts send through email

You can now choose to have traveling users receive alerts via email. The email is triggered for any users – both end-users with the Safeture Mobile Application installed and traveling users added to the platform via a PNR (Passenger Name Record).

Automatic removal of traveler profiles

To keep your account up-to-date with only relevant travelers, Safeture now offers a way of cleaning up old traveler profiles that have been imported via PNR sources from the system. The deleted traveler profiles will no longer be used for matching PNRs. If a new travel booking is added to the system for the same traveler, a completely new profile will be created. The deleted traveler will also be removed from the “User list” in the User Management Module.

New icons for hotel and car hire

Now in the Portal under Travel Bookings, a hotel icon is displayed for Hotel and Car hire bookings. Also on the Security Overview the booking location is displayed as a Hotel Icon.
