The new initiative, what3words, is a simple way to talk about your current location. It has given each 3m square in the world a unique 3 word address, meaning you can refer to any precise location with just three words, no co-ordinates necessary.
Although our travel tracking app, Solace Secure, allows you to pinpoint your current location, at Solace Global Risk we are able to simplify the emergency response process by sharing your what3words with local emergency services who can easily identify your exact location. Whilst we can still provide your co-ordinates, many in country providers are now working to use what3words to improve accuracy and speed in responding to your requests. With the what3words map overlay you have the option to view associated three-word addresses across the globe. It is a strong development to have the ability to use additional methods to communicate an individual’s location during an emergency, aiding response. If you are already familiar with what3words and call into our operations centre wishing to use a what3words address our response team will be able to continue to support you.
