Halo Solutions said it has introduced new software to help venues ensure the safety of their visitors.

Launching today, 9 January, the software includes new modules in crowd management, drone feeds, accreditation and sustainability.

Halo version five will include new APIs for the system, a document library so that risk assessments and protocols can be stored for staff to access instantly, a bulletin board for “ejections and risky people”, a dashboard and upgraded mapping integrations.

The system will also introduce four additional modules for users. These include:

  • Crowd management – allowing clients to monitor crowds from CCTV feeds, using smart overlays and AI to ascertain crowd sentiment, density, tension and flow.
  • Accreditation – giving clients the ability to create digital access passes (available to print) that prove identity. Linked to the UK Government Passport and Driving Licence databases and allowing for customisable onboarding journeys with document upload for compliance.
  • A sustainability module – offering clients the opportunity to monitor the impact of their venue and operations with month-by-month comparison and meta-analysis on key sustainability metrics on waste, water, electricity and gas usage.
  • Live video integration – which can be directly streamed into a Halo dashboard. Sources for video feeds can include drones, CCTV and boots on the ground via mobile devices – an automated direct permission link that allows mirroring of their critical live video to control.

Halo Solutions CEO and founder Lloyd Major said, “Halo version five is the culmination of five years of feedback and ideal features that our clients have wanted. Halo version five truly is ‘designed by you and built by us.’ It lays the foundations for a lot more powerful features to come throughout 2023.”
