Teams that function and communicate well are safe and effective teams. AustereRMS ties together all the components of a risk management system with a fast, lightweight, customised offline portal and app which can be distributed to your team members to improve safety before, during and after remote wilderness activities. The AustereRMS Portal is accessible via desktop, tablet or mobile phone, and is distributed directly to team members using a customised link (without the need or cost of app stores).
The AustereRMS Portal brings your traditional paper forms, maps, risk matrices, incident reports, emergency plans and other essential documents into the hands of its intended users with a fast, clean and easy-to-access offline interface. Alternatively AustereRMS can be designed and built for teams/organisations with no risk management system in place.

This app is essentially an offline book that can be read easily on any device and install like an app. This form of app is great for managers who required their staff to have an operations manual in the field, without the usual headache of telling team members to 'find the latest PDF' in amongst their emails in the field.
