Alertacall summary

Alertacall pioneers the principle that by increasing contact with people, in a structured way that empowers them and gives them control, you can better understand their changing needs, make better decisions and improve their lives.

Alertacall was founded by the CEO James Batchelor, the original inventor of the “I am okay” button. He was inspired by the changing needs of Eveline, his own staunchly independent grandmother and her desire to remain in her own home for as long as possible.

The company now improves the lives of tens of thousands of people. It works in partnership with dozens of organisations in housing, health and social care and has many private customers.

Alertacall employs team members from all across the UK, with offices located in Windermere, Cumbria, and Warrington, Cheshire. The company has a strong and experienced leadership team and comprises passionate experts in customer services, technology, operations and product development.

Alertacall was Highly Commended at the National Business Awards for Innovation. The company trades profitably and invests in new technologies and people development. Its shareholders are all Board Members and driven by a desire for the company to improve contact and well being for as many people as possible.
