Getting 911 Right

How to Ensure Compliance, Minimize Risk, and Protect Employee Safety in the Hybrid Workplace

Although the final phase of RAY BAUM’s Act went into effect more than a year ago, many enterprises still struggle to understand what it means to be compliant. 

You’re on the hook for providing emergency responders with an accurate dispatchable location for your employees, whether they’re in the office, or wherever ‘work from home’ means. 

But with challenges around location provisioning and detection for nomadic users, you probably  also need a specialized emergency solution to make on-premise and cloud-based comms compliant.
