Apprion Announces Latest Version of ION Mustering Application for the Quickest, Safest and Most Efficient Means to Locate All Personnel During an Emergency

Recent Version of ION Mustering Incorporates More Advanced Features for Real-Time Personnel Location, Status and Communication

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) - Apprion, the leading provider of wireless application systems and services for industrial facilities, today announced the latest version of ION Mustering, the leading personnel safety application for industrial manufacturing facilities. Apprion's ION Mustering provides real-time information and communication about the status of employees and contractors, enabling plants to locate personnel in real-time and providing efficient communication that can save lives and keep facilities' most valuable asset -- their personnel -- safe.

"The imperative for safe plant operation has never been greater. ARC's surveys of manufacturers find that real-time location tracking solutions such as ION Mustering are much preferred. In an emergency real-time data is comprehensive, accurate, up to date, and readily available," says Harry Forbes of Boston-based ARC Advisory Group.

In the day to day operations of industrial facilities, nothing is more critical than the safety and health of personnel. Unfortunately, many facilities are still utilizing archaic, manual processes and systems during critical emergency activities. One serious incident puts the lives of many at risk. ION Mustering ensures greater protection for employees, contractors, and the surrounding community with faster, more accurate and efficient mustering than traditional manual processes, real-time monitoring of worker health, location and status and visual confirmation of personnel safety. 

"Our customers have stressed that personnel safety is the top priority at their facilities," said Sarah Prinster, Vice-President of Marketing at Apprion. "We focused our design and engineering efforts on our ION Mustering Application with features such as Area Entry Logs and Broadcast Alerts to give industrial sites the best solution possible for personnel safety during critical industrial activities."

ION Mustering Application provides wireless technology and the integrated ION dashboard to verify the location and status of all personnel during an emergency. The solution leverages real-time personnel tracking via Wi-Fi, GPS, or RFID Tags and provides visual confirmation of the safety of every individual within a facility. When an alarm is activated, all safety wardens can immediately identify who is already in the mustering area and who might be missing. Personnel icons on regional maps show the specific location as well as a visible trail of recent movement. 

Key Features in this new release include:

  • Mustering area camera + video
  • Emergency notification broadcast alerts and notification timer
  • Procedural documents and events
  • Personnel icons and blue line tracker
  • Mustering Area Entry Log
  • Personnel information and status list

Like all ION Applications, ION Mustering is easily integrated into the ION System to provide limitless functionality. For example, when combined with ION Video, safety wardens have access to a visual check on mustering areas to identify personnel and view live status.
