“The WSG app has provided a user-friendly lone worker option that has been embraced by everyone. Having a great user-friendly app is one thing, but the dedication, patience, and knowledge and “always ready to help” attitude of ALL the WSG staff that I have EVER had contact with has really made the product from a 5-star rating to well beyond.”

— Mark, Botanical Resources
