Enjoy The Work is excited to announce the recent addition of emergency response platform, SimpleSense, to its portfolio.
Each workday in the United States, 7,000 employees experience a critical emergency. Hundreds of injuries and deaths occur largely in part due to antiquated 911 systems that delay the response times of first responders and emergency medical services.
SimpleSense solves this problem by integrating data from 911 into corporate security operations, enabling the lightning-quick transfer of critical information. This allows first responders to save precious minutes locating the exact location of the incident.
To help conceptualize, consider an emergency on a large college campus. Relaying information to 911 about the specific location and details of the emergency is no simple feat, and giving imprecise directions could mean the difference between life and death.
With SimpleSense, early users have confirmed that first responders can save up to 6 minutes per incident on a large corporate campus by receiving critical information immediately, without delay.
Over 28,000 employers in the US self-insure, meaning risk to their employees is a direct risk to the bottom line. SimpleSense provides immense value to those companies looking to take care of their employees, while also being proactive about mitigating major financial liability.
SimpleSense is going to market by rolling out its software at suburban office parks, high rise tenants, and government installations. Paid pilots are already in effect with the Air Force and Erie Insurance, and three Fortune 500s are slated to roll out the software this fall.
Co-founders Eric Kanagy and Alex Brickner are driven by the possibility of a future where smart technology saves thousands of lives and minimizes tragedies.
“Any time you have the chance to work with a company that is quite literally saving lives, it’s likely a cause worth joining,” says Enjoy The Work Partner, Ned Renzi. “There is no debating the importance of the work done by Eric and Alex, and ETW is proud to have them aboard.”
