APP UPDATE

Co Charger 

Any motorist who has felt locked out of electric vehicle ownership, perhaps because they are among the 40% of people who live in a terraced house or flat where installing a private charger isn’t an option, may be interested in the Co Charger app. This Community Charging platform enables the estimated 300,000 people with private electric vehicle chargers to share them with neighbours who don’t have such a facility and, in the process, generate additional income and help their neighbourhood to become cleaner and greener. The app connects hosts and chargees; manages bookings and payment; enables hosts to set a price; and displays local charge points and rates. The app currently has more than 1,300 Hosts across every major UK town and city and a user base of 3,000. www.Co-charger.com

StaySafe 

Siemens Healthineers, a provider of medical equipment to hospitals and other healthcare facilities, is rolling out the StaySafe lone worker app to help protect its on-call service engineers. The British Crime Survey estimates that 150 lone workers are physically or verbally assaulted every day, and the risk is particularly acute in the healthcare sector, with 14.9% of respondents to the last annual NHS staff survey being exposed to aggression. StaySafe gives engineers reassurance that help will be on its way in the event of an altercation or an accident. As soon as an engineer starts a timed session from their mobile phone, managers can see exactly where they are and send assistance if they fail to check-in, raise an alert or stop moving. www.staysafeapp.com
