Ensuring the personal safety of your employees and VIP are critical to any operation and as such effective asset tracking of such valuable assets ensure the safety, efficiency and continuity of operations while navigating or working in remote or challenging areas.

Knowing where your staff are at all times not only gives you peace of mind but can significantly improve the efficiency and safety of operations.
Satellite communication architecture, including satellite phones and tracking devices, empower various industries to create a powerful asset tracking and emergency response solution that will work for any operation in any location. globalCom Director David Lipton explains: “Tracking individual staff or teams works in conjunction with ensuring their personal safety. Satellite tracking devices provide accurate, detailed information on the location of any valuable assets. Whether used separately or together, satellite phones and satellite trackers are powerful tools for any company.”
