Arlington, Va. – LiveSafe Inc., the most advanced mobile safety communications platform, announced today the release of their upgraded Command Dashboard and mobile safety app that sets a new standard in the delivery of safety, security and crowd sourced intelligence. The expanded functionality is a built in response to the challenges facing today’s enterprise and university customers in communicating two-way, real-time, critical information to inform, connect and mobilize people and safety resources. The new features include: improved scalable architecture; geo-targeted mass notification; “check in” capability; an enhanced tip reporting tool that allows multiple images, videos and audio files; Single Sign On (SSO) for enterprises and a Rich Site Summary (RSS) auto-rebroadcast.
“LiveSafe’s enterprise-class platform covers over one million lives,” said LiveSafe CEO Carolyn Parent. “As a company, we are committed to making our world a safer place with innovative technology that keeps people informed and protected. Throughout the development of the new release, we worked closely with our enterprise, university and healthcare customers who provided recommendations and examples of real time safety incidents.”
LiveSafe mobile safety communications platform refinements:
Rapid Scalability – Built around historical information on time-based patterns of incidents, LiveSafe’s enhanced enterprise-class platform instantly scales to handle large volumes of traffic and data.
Geo-Targeted Mass Notification and Check In Feature – LiveSafe’s new geo-targeted mass notification and check in feature allows customers to set up a geo-fence anywhere in the world. “Always on” functionality allows targeted messages to anyone within the fence. Mass notifications, pushed security protocols and two-way communications eliminates the complexity of tracking individuals in today’s mobile workforce. LiveSafe’s advanced check-in feature provides real-time accounting for people in security situations to allow security resources to focus on the mission.
SSO Authorization and RSS Feed – LiveSafe’s new SSO authorization gives organizations an easy to access new authentication mechanism in addition to PIN and verified email domain. The RSS feed auto broadcast capability allows organizations to tie into an existing RSS feed and enable automatic push notifications for those customers with existing emergency notification systems.
Tip Reporting Tool – LiveSafe’s tip reporting tool improves allows multiple forms of media to be forwarded through one tip. Text, audio and imaging increase the quality of information delivered through the tip reporting tool. During two separate pilots, this feature assisted security officials in the diffusion of an active shooter situation and enabled law enforcement to arrest a sexual assault perpetrator within 12 minutes after the tip was received. Now, commercial clients and educational institutions can help mitigate risk and protect people and assets through LiveSafe’s advanced enterprise-class platform. LiveSafe recently made the news in December announcing new investment from IAC and Hearst Ventures and the appointment of Carolyn Parent as the company’s new CEO.
