Halo Event Management Software has been developed by CREST Planning Ltd. in the UK. With Crest's founders coming from strategic and operational policing and events backgrounds, their software reflects both and represents the best all-round solution the Safe Events Team explored during almost 18 months of research.
Key among Halo's attributes is its audit trail, whereby log entries during an event can not be edited and are time-stamped. Incidents and responses are also managed and updated within the app, which creates a corresponding log of developments as well as decisions taken in Event Control. These features provide peace of mind for clients who know there is a comprehensive record of all events and actions, which may prove helpful for reporting and analysis internally or, indeed, may prove vital in potential litigation or court proceedings.
The Halo software was recently used on the ICC Cricket World Cup in the UK and already counts a range of large-scale events and venue, emergency services and local authorities among its clients. The software was trialled and tested extensively by Safe Events during the Wild Lights events at Dublin Zoo in 2018.
Safe Events also recently deployed Halo this year's Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann, where over 600,000 people enjoyed the festivities in Drogheda over the course of 8 days of activity.
Speaking about new partnership, Mark Breen, Director of Safe Events said:
We invested a lot of time into researching options for software like this and Halo was by far the best we found. Add to that the fact that Lloyd and Greg (Halo's founders) are good guys and really care about helping make events safer and we knew Halo was the answer for us and our clients. It made sense for us to do a deal to secure exclusive rights for events in the Irish market and we look forward to working with the team in Halo for years to come.
Halo has won countless awards since launching, which is testament to the ongoing development and improvement work that sees regular releases of updated versions of the software. With a Dashboard feature for use in Event Control rooms and an app for use by key operational staff out on the ground at events, Halo provides a comprehensive communications platform that reduces reliance on two-way radios, WhatsApp groups and standard messaging and communication tools.
In announcing the partnership with Safe Events, Lloyd Major, CEO & Co-Founder at CREST Planning Ltd. commented:
We are delighted to secure a deal with Safe Events. We value our personal relationship with Mark and his Team who have been, and continue to be, great partners in the industry for us and everyone else who follows their work and blogs. It’s also a great step forward for us to launch our first overseas distributor and we have found the perfect professional partner to help us take our first steps towards establishing a global Halo distribution network.
Halo is set to become the standard-bearer for Event Control operations in Ireland and beyond.
