What is Sentinel?

• An independent two-way communication system with multicasting functionality, ensuring messages or questions requiring a response always reach the relevant parties. 

• A class-leading document management system to publish important content to relevant persons or departments in your organization, accessible online and off. 

• An user directory that sits within the back-end database and app, that can function as part of your HR database. 

User Directory

• Provide all users, or certain users of the app with a complete directory of users within the app, to act as an address book directory or simply to use in the event of incidents. 

• Gives incident managers quick access to relevant contact details of anybody in a HR database during an unfolding crisis. 

• Allow employees to use an easily accessible company address book through the app, giving it utility even outside of crisis situations. 

Document management

• Provide an on-device library of all documentation and procedures, accessible without the need for an internet or phone connection.

• Assign particular user-groups access to particular documents, and gate their access to others. For example, ensure only your IT department has access to IT documentation.

• Convert documents to PhoneView, ensuring that even lengthy documentation can be easily read when on a smartphone


• Organize relevant people within your database into specific broadcasting user groups, ensuring that the right type of message reaches the right kind of people in a flash.

• Publish documents for specific groups, ensuring they are not visible by others. 

• For example, make sure that you can broadcast directly to your IT department in the event of a major server outage, air-gapping other employees from the messages.

Looking after people

• Use the multicasting (SMS, e-Mail, in-app, voice) system to prompt staff to report their status at the click of a button and alert incident managers if they are in danger.

Ask employees questions, either in a crisis situation for incident management purposes or to gauge opinion of company policy on certain matters.

• All response data is displayed on a live dashboard, instantly highlighting any areas of concern to prioritize, helping to meet your duty of care as employer while reducing insurance premiums. 


• Based on core security practices, ISO 27001-27002, provide control structures for Physical Security, Emergency Planning, Investigations, Information Protection, Education and Risk Analysis.

• No single point of failure with fully redundant, in-sync filestores (for all uploaded/processed files), in addition to backups created nightly. 

• Sits indepedent of your traditional communication channels and social-media.
