Halo allows organisers to “streamline security and health and safety procedures, giving them complete control and real-time shared situational awareness to their own virtual command station”. Since its launch in 2018, Halo has been deployed across cricket, rugby and football stadia helping to keep people safe, it has also been credited with saving a life at Leicester Carnival.
Jill McCracken, director of tournament safety and security at the Cricket World Cup, commented: “Halo is an innovative, user friendly and operationally practical system and I am sure that the benefits this system can bring to any operational event are evident to anyone with responsibility for safety and security at events. I am looking forward to working alongside the Crest Planning team at the Cricket World Cup 2019.”
Lloyd Major, CEO and founder of Crest Planning, added: “2018 was a fantastic first year for Crest Planning winning multiple awards for our Halo app and keeping half a million people safe. 2019 is set to be an extremely busy one for us and we are really excited to be working with the organisers of some of the country’s largest and well-known events helping eventgoers to enjoy themselves in a safe environment.”
