TraknProtect Staff Safety Webinar Series Expands
TraknProtect, a provider of real-time location technology purpose-built for the hospitality industry, has been reaching a growing audience of hoteliers with a new educational podcast and webcast series explaining staff safety legislation, compliance and implementation.
The series kicked off last month with the premiere of TrakCast, a new podcast designed to educate and inform the industry on advances in hospitality technology. The podcast program has been joined this month with webinars explaining the impact of upcoming legislative deadlines and the potential liability and legal consequences of non-compliance. So far webinar events have been broadcast for hoteliers in New Jersey and Illinois State with the next event scheduled for Californian hoteliers in various cities early next month.
According to TraknProtect CEO and co-founder, Parminder Batra, as more and more cities and states begin to propose and endorse legislation that requires hotels to implement a staff safety solution, the company will continue to develop and deploy educational resources that are intended to help hoteliers understand how to get ahead of the curve and mitigate the inherent risks of hotel safety compliance.
The TraknProtect staff safety platform consists of a series of hubs that are strategically placed around the property. These hubs are designed to interface directly with hotel staff safety buttons (panic buttons) and inventory tracking equipment. Using advanced, cloud-based geo-location technology, TraknProtect triangulates the exact location of employees in real time whenever a staff safety alert button is activated. The company’s software then sends immediate signals from active staff safety alert buttons to the appropriate personnel, based on their location or through user activation, which can then be received via desktop, SMS, email, or phone calls. The solution works similarly to locate trackable equipment, such as food service trays and other valuable hotel inventory.
All of these functions are accessed using TraknProtect’s dashboard, which can track real-time analytics on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices. The platform has been designed as a holistic way to provide security to the most vulnerable elements of a hotel’s operations – its employees – and it does so by leveraging a property’s existing Wi-Fi and devices. With no additional infrastructure or wiring necessary, hotels can access the TraknProtect platform and provide immediate security to their employees.
