Finding a lone worker in a time of need is made simple thanks to Blackline’s powerful real-time communications and visualization tools provided by Google. Blackline maps the employee’s precise location on a Google map to provide location-based context—even if the employee is working indoors. Custom floor plans are overlaid on the Google map, pinpointing the individual’s location.
Blackline has partnered with Iridium for real-time, bi-directional communications in all locations beyond the reach of traditional cellular networks. Iridium is the leading provider of truly global satellite communications using a constellation of low Earth-orbit satellites. Some other satellite communications services use geostationary satellites that appear low on the horizon at higher latitudes. Iridium satellites are deployed in near-polar orbits, providing excellent visibility everywhere around the globe. As a result, Blackline’s Loner Bridge System provides industry-leading safety monitoring no matter where an employee working alone is located.
