Global Monitoring App
The Global Monitoring App is a completely new product compared to its predecessor. We have redesigned the entire look and feel of the app and added some new functionalities: For example, users can create upcoming trips in the system and be informed when something happens there. We also provide detailed risk assessments for these trips, which we supplement with entry and exit information. This also includes any special arrangements resulting from COVID-19 measures.
In addition, you can be actively informed about relevant events independently of a specific trip. For this purpose, countries and/or event categories can be added to a "watchlist".
Please contact the responsible person in your company.
Depending on the licence model, the country information and / or the arrival and departure information may be activated in the app. In this case, please contact the responsible person in your company.
There are basically two ways to do this: On the one hand, you can create future trips in the app and then receive precise notifications for them. Secondly, there is the option of adding countries to the "watchlist" and being actively informed whenever something happens there.
The SOS button gives you access to the local emergency numbers for the police, ambulance and fire brigade. In addition, it is possible to store the number of a specific emergency call centre - such as an insurance company or assistance centre - here. Please contact the responsible person in your company.
The Global Monitoring App can alert you in two ways: via push message and / or email.
Location-based notifications are always delivered via push messages, you can optionally select email as an additional delivery method. You can decide on a case-by-case basis whether notifications for future trips, countries and/or events on the watchlist are delivered via push message or email.
The geo-position data of the app cannot be viewed by third parties, but is only used for the delivery of relevant warning messages.
Global Monitoring Consumer App
Unfortunately, it is not possible to transfer in-app purchases between different platforms (app store providers). The reasons for this are technical: it is not possible to restore purchases from iOS under Android, or vice versa. In-app purchases on the respective platform are always linked to the respective Apple account ID or to the corresponding Google account. When changing providers, an existing subscription should be cancelled and taken out again with the new provider.
