"When we first looked at Lone Worker Protection we thought we’d have to buy a device. But with Orbis we don’t have to buy a specialist device; we can use our existing mobiles, with the exception of buying GPS devices for those most at risk. It means we’ve saved money and have been able to protect more staff."
