GTC customer, Nikki Love, is an adventure runner and ultra-marathoner on a mission of epic proportions, and is using the powerful SPOT Gen4 satellite tracker to monitor her progress every step of the way.
To write herself into the Guinness Book of World Records, Nikki is currently halfway through her RunAustralia challenge, in an attempt to become the fastest female to cross Australia on foot.
Starting in Perth and finishing in Sydney, Nikki will cover a total distance of 4,000km in the space of just a couple of months, running an ultra-marathon a day (the equivalent of 50km, 100km, 50 miles, or 100 miles), all the while being reliably tracked by the portable, compact, and lightweight SPOT Gen4 satellite tracker.
The SPOT Gen4 is a simple personal satellite tracker that automatically pings the device wearer's location to an online mapping portal at regular intervals. From every 2.5 mins, to 5, 10, or 30 minutes, the device's location will be logged onto our GTCTrack portal page allowing friends, family, or colleagues to view it at the click of a button.
SPOT Gen4 trackers are ideal for anyone venturing into the wilderness on their own, and are popular not only among sporting enthusiasts like Nikki, but also lone workers operating remotely where mobile phone coverage isn't an option. With SPOT for Business, managers can keep track of their remote workers using the SPOT for Business cloud-based portal, see they have arrived safely, and be alerted of emergency situations.
SPOT is easy to set-up and offers inclusive messaging subscriptions. This means fixed price subscription invoices, a great feature when calculating ongoing costs for your project.
Among many others, GTC customers have used SPOT with great results in the forestry, education, security and utilities sectors as well as the armed forces.
"We expect SPOT to come into its own as an important part of our health and safety strategy. With reliable satellite communications, we can get help to our employees whenever it is needed and wherever they might be." Kes Juskowiak, Scottish Water
