The app has been specifically developed to help estate and lettings agents feel safer on appointments when lone working, by alerting colleagues if help and assistance is required.
Available in the App and Google Play Stores, the app allows users to nominate colleagues or friends who will be alerted automatically if a viewing or time limit is overrun. It also allows instant alert by putting your PIN in backwards and uses What3Words positioning.
Ed Mead from Viewber said: “We are pleased Connells Group has recognised the benefits ViewBuddy can bring in addition to its existing arrangements. Anything that helps keep staff safe is to the credit of employers and Connells Group remains an industry leader.”
Jason Hill, Connells Group head of Fire, Health & Safety, added: “The personal safety of our colleagues is of paramount importance to us and we’re encouraging them all to download ViewBuddy. The app provides another tool in our armoury to help keep our colleagues safe when on appointments, and perfectly supplements our existing lone worker and safe appointment procedures.”
