UST Global on 6 March 2015 has launched women safety App iSafe. It is a mobile-based app for women’s safety. The app was launched ahead of the International Women’s Day on 8 March.
The App was launched for the Thiruvananthapuram City Police in the presence of high ranking police and other government officials at the Government College for Women, Thiruvananthapuram.
Through the app, women will be able to send instant alerts to the police control room by using the panic button or just by the long press of volume rocker (down) key of their mobile phones. The police control room receives the alert along with information of the location, the subscriber ID and the IMEI number of the mobile. The police then immediately dispatches help via the police CRV (Control Room Vehicle) that is nearest to the distress location.
Once iSafe sends an alert to the control room, its position can be tracked until the situation is resolved. The position is visible to the police at the control room and also on App.
The App iSafe is an integral part of the earlier app that UST Global had developed for Thiruvananthapuram City Police a few months ago. The app is currently available for Android and will soon be available on other platforms. UST Global will be providing the solution to other state police forces as well.
