ARLINGTON, Va. – LiveSafe, and its mobile safety app with cloud-based Command Dashboard, was named a finalist in the Mobile Applications, Development & Platforms of CTIA’s MobITs Awards competition. Enhancing enterprise performance, efficiency and productivity, the MobITs Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in mobile IT solutions through mobile apps and platforms, customer experience, device management, security and privacy and new innovations.
The LiveSafe technology platform enables police and security officers to receive anonymous texts, photos, audio and video, tagged with geo-location data, directly from individuals.
LiveSafe partners access tips through the Command Dashboard, a cloud-based interface that offers public safety officers, law enforcement, and emergency responders the ability to monitor activity and communicate with users. They also receive a robust set of analytics to help determine how to structure crime prevention strategies and best deploy resources.
“LiveSafe is disrupting traditional means of communication with police by turning anyone with a smartphone into a force multiplier for public safety,” said LiveSafe Founder Shy Pahlevani. “Our technology is sparking a two-way culture change: police are adapting to how smartphone users prefer to communicate and citizens are reimagining their roles in preventing crime. The ease of use and option of anonymity are giving security officials access to thousands of tips they never got before.”
“CTIA awards recognize some of the best mobile products and services that leverage, shape and transform our competitive and rapidly evolving mobile industry. These awards are perfectly timed for holiday buying and new year business planning, and CTIA Super Mobility 2015 attendees will have the opportunity to see and experience these innovations first hand,” said CTIA Vice President and Show Director Robert Mesirow.
Dozens of industry experts, reporters and analysts judged and scored hundreds of entries to determine the finalists and winners in CTIA’s annual awards program. CTIA will host the awards ceremony at CTIA Super Mobility 2015 and announce the winners Thursday, September 10 at 2:00 p.m. PT from the Networked Society Stage (Booth 3673) in the Sands Expo.
