Lone Worker protection specialist StaySafe acquired by European market leader in EHS solutions, EcoOnline

Written by Don Cameron, StaySafe

14th June 2022 StaySafe (Safe Apps Ltd), provider of the best-selling app for keeping lone workers safe, has today been acquired by EcoOnline, a European market leader in EHS SaaS solutions.

 StaySafe’s platform includes an innovative and award-winning smartphone app and cloud-based monitoring solution providing personal protection for lone workers. The easy-to-use app tracks location in real-time, enabling employees to check-in safely and request immediate assistance in an emergency. Monitoring can be performed in-house or managed by StaySafe. The solution provides global coverage, and the company has over 900 client organisations and more than 45,000 users across the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

 EcoOnline is an EHS SaaS market leader in the Nordics, the UK and Ireland. The company helps more than 7,100 customers across 86 industries to effectively mitigate risks and take corrective actions to protect everyone in the supply chain. 

 Don Cameron, CEO of StaySafe says: “We’re delighted to become part of EcoOnline. For our customers their greater resources will allow us to accelerate the development of the StaySafe lone worker product and offer some exciting new best of breed EHS solutions. EcoOnline’s greater market access will allow us to accelerate our growth, particularly in areas where we have little presence. I think it’s a great fit for our people, the company and our clients.” 

“EcoOnline impressed us with a company culture that matches ours, a great range of complimentary SaaS products, large customer base, good financial backing and ambitious growth plans. Both companies have a shared vision to make every workplace safer, healthier and more sustainable with smart, simple-to-use and flexible software tools.”

EcoOnline’s CEO, Göran Lindö, states: “Our mission in EcoOnline is to protect people and the environment. In StaySafe, we have found a team where the protection of people is in their DNA, and we see great potential for future joint growth and innovation. We believe StaySafe’s solution is at the forefront of Lone Worker protection, and marrying it with our user-friendly EHS and chemical safety suite is an attractive match. Together, we will bring StaySafe’s product to our 7,100+ customer base in the UK, Ireland, the US, and the Nordics, while offering our own broad EHS platform to StaySafe customers, creating a best-in-class on and off-site worker safety solution.”
