When the CEO of WhosOnLocation decided to put their WolEvac application to the ultimate test he didn’t tell his staff he’d do it from an altitude of 33,000 feet while in transit on the other side of the globe.

Typically users, like fire marshals or floor wardens, would verify the safety of staff from outside the situation of risk; this being the building or facility staff are working from. Think of a fire, shooter on site or bomb threat. But CEO, Darren Whitaker-Barnett decided to run a scenario in his head while flying between San Francisco and Houston.

What if he found, while mid-air, that there was an incident at his Wellington, New Zealand office?

Could he use WolEvac on his mobile to verify the safety of his team?

He sure could and he did.

He activated WolEvac after signing into United Airlines great WIFI service, sent a push notification to all staff through the application, and he was able to verify their safety in seconds.

Now that’s a test. 33,000 feet. 10,000+ km’s away.
