The Safe365 solution, built on Microsoft Azure’s globally recognized and leading cloud computing platform, allows users to get a full-scale diagnostic plan of a particular business, or business unit, generated by proprietary algorithms to prioritize their time and resources effectively. The Safe365 platform comes with interactive dashboards that help clients manage different aspects and departments of their business and track improvements over time. Users can easily leverage all these capabilities by accessing Safe365 from any internet enabled device, which makes it a go-to solution for every enterprise.
One of Safe365’s clients, Auckland Council in New Zealand—the largest local authority in the southern hemisphere, implemented the Safe365 solution to diagnose strengths and areas needing improvement across 52 individual business units. With a workforce comprising over 9000 staff, the organization lacked a common strategy to focus their efforts in the right direction. Safe365 provided Auckland Council with dashboards that empowered their health and safety team to develop and implement a work plan to support their complex organizational structure. At the executive and governance level, the Auckland Council’s C-suite and elected officials gained visibility into the areas of improvement and could monitor progress as part of their ongoing due diligence and safety leadership role.

Safe365 has an extensive suite of new developments to be released throughout 2019 as it continues to execute its innovative product roadmap ensuring its clients remain well served over time.
