React Mobile, the company that offers the most effective personal safety solutions for enterprises, today announced that it has launched a Hospitality Safety Package built exclusively for Seattle hoteliers addressing a new workplace safety measure mandating the availability of panic buttons for all Seattle hotel workers. React Mobile is extending the offer as a simple, low-cost way for Seattle hotels to address the measure passed by voters as part of Initiative 124, which aims to improve the individual safety of housekeepers and other hotel staff.
“Initiative 124 is a complicated piece of legislation and has a number of components that can make the measure difficult for hotels to address,” said Robb Monkman, Founder and CEO of React Mobile. “By packaging our technology for Seattle hoteliers, we’re taking some of the burden off of their shoulders and simplifying an otherwise overwhelming situation.”
Initiative 124 requires Seattle hotels to provide housekeepers with panic buttons, track guests accused of harassment, limit housekeeper workloads, help thousands of low-wage employees pay for health care and retain workers during ownership transfers, among other things.
As part of its Hospitality Package, React Mobile will provide hotels with panic buttons, a custom branded React Dispatch Console, a custom branded sign-up webpage where hotel employees can download the free React Mobile safety app, as well as software maintenance and support. The Package requires no upfront expense or intensive integration.
“Hotels need to keep their operations running smoothly so they can provide their guests with the highest level of customer service,” Monkman said.
The React Mobile solution is trusted by Fortune 1000 companies, universities and major retailers. The company’s panic button, called the Sidekick, turns any smartphone into a powerful lifeline. With a single click of the Sidekick safety device, users can activate the app and issue an SOS alert for immediate emergency assistance, even when their phone screen is locked or their phone is out of reach. The React Mobile safety app’s “Follow-Me” feature shares the user’s location with co-workers, friends, or family, enabling them to track the user’s whereabouts in real-time and follow him or her to safety.
The React Dispatch Console combines alert management, computer aided dispatch, and incident reporting in one central application for improved situational awareness and faster response times. The technology enables emergency dispatch centers to receive React SOS alerts around-the-clock, as well as the ability to immediately identify the person in distress – and their exact location.
“Hotel worker safety is not an issue that’s exclusive to Seattle,” Monkman said. “Similar legislation is taking hold in other cities around the country. We look forward to working with hoteliers in an effort to help them address these measures while saving hotels time and money.”

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
