Product summary

Boosting efficiency, visibility and compliance

Visibeat is a white-labelled location tracking and management platform for businesses and government bodies. It is used for tracking the live location of team members, creating hotspots (geofences) and tracking the activities within hotspots.

Admin and managers can use the web dashboard to manage operations, track team members in real-time, check location-based analytics and add questionnaires.

Humberside Police were looking to develop a digital solution to track the location of police officers. We implemented Visibeat for them and helped them to make the department more accountable.
