Safe Site is one of the many powerful new apps developed in collaboration between Apple and IBM for the IBM MobileFirst group. These enterprise apps are designed in order to make it easy for professionals across multiple industries to input and read data and anatlyics from multiple devices.

In the case of Safe Site, designed for forepersons, this app includes a built-in camera and microphone to document and assess risks on a site. Using the power of beacon technology, site managers will be able to respond quickly to prevent danger, report incidents and communicate events with other coworkers nearby. This way, marked hazards can be recognized on a site in order to prevent a harmful situation from playing out.

Beyond addressing safety, apps in the IBM MobileFirst group appeal to those who work in the healthcare, retail and insurance industries.
