News: Connexion2 secures Travelodge contract


Innovative Rotherham company, Connexion2 has secured a contract with Travelodge, the UK's fastest growing budget hotel chain, to provide their market leading lone worker security device, Identicom.

The Dinnington company's SoloProtect package is based on the Identicom system which is designed to look like a normal ID badge but allows lone workers to raise an alarm, make an emergency phone call or send a text message.

It also allows a user who is feeling unsafe to request monitoring or specific assistance through the ability to discreetly open a live audio channel. Dedicated staff at the Alarm Receiving Centre can discreetly monitor what is happening, capture the audio evidence, and make an assessment as to the level of support required - involving the police if necessary. All audio captured through the device is recorded for future use as admissible evidence in court if required.

Travelodge is rolling out Identicom devices in over 500 hotels, which are being deployed across a mixture of the company's existing and brand-new hotels.

Clare Shinton, head of safety at Trevelodge, said: "There are occasions when staff members, working alone on reception, behind the bar or dealing with a customer's query - perhaps in their room, feel they need additional support.

"Travelodge takes its duty of care very seriously and whilst our previous solution had been in place for a number of years, we wanted to explore other options to ensure our people feel protected and have the most appropriate and comprehensive support available."
