News: Identicom delivers for Domino's

By

Domino's Pizza UK and Ireland Ltd is using the market-leading Identicom device from Rotherham-based Connexion2 as part of the UK's top pizza delivery company's health and safety initiative to protect staff working alone.

Domino's adopted Identicom through the SoloProtect managed service and have been supplied with 150 Identicom 877 series devices, which are personally issued to all supply chain delivery drivers.

Based in Dinnington, Connexion2 developed and manufactures Identicom, which is now the UK's most widely deployed dedicated lone worker device. It is designed to look like a normal ID badge and allows lone workers to raise an alarm, make an emergency phone call or send a text message.

The Domino's health and safety team chose the Identicom device and SoloProtect solution above other lone worker market solutions after a consultation process with their delivery drivers, who sighted the devices discrete look and ease of use as major draws.

Shaun Hobbs, transport planning assistant at Domino's, said: "As a driver delivering to our stores at all times of the day and night, you can sometimes encounter situations that can leave you feeling isolated and alone.

"The Identicom gives us peace of mind that if a situation does arise there is always someone there ready to listen, monitoring our safety and wellbeing, and escalating any situation to the emergency services as appropriate."

Domino's, which has over 860 stores mainly in the UK, is now consulting with its franchise community to see how the Identicom device will assist with the safety of their delivery drivers.

Identicom allows users to discreetly raise a "Red Alert" if they ever feel unsafe or if their safety is compromised. The alert goes through to an approved Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) where a dedicated member of the lone worker team can listen to and assess the situation and escalate to Police if necessary. The Identicom 877 series also includes configurable two-way audio, multi-function buttons to aid with job orientated tasks plus the ability to leave voice messages and get feedback on signal strength and battery life.
