CeBIT is Asia Pacific’s biggest business technology event and is in its 16th year. It attracts about 15,000 visitors over 3 days.

We were really excited to be invited to showcase My Safety Buddy – THE go anywhere personal safety solution in ‘start-up alley’ at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, Sydney. It was the perfect event to give the newly launched My Safety Buddy its first public presentation.

The response to My Safety Buddy was overwhelming. We walked away with very positive feedback.

A snapshot of My Safety Buddy:

Utilising its web portal and smartphone app for Android and Apple phones, My Safety Buddy enables organisations to provide their staff who work in isolation or as lone workers with a better solution to ensure staff get home safely each and every day.

For the individual My Safety Buddy is an invaluable tool to enhance the personal safety of you and your family.

The app sends out rapid alerts for emergency situations in order to activate effective and timely help responses. GPS location, audio and video recordings and details pertaining to the user are provided to emergency contacts. The user can choose to have alerts sent automatically if they miss a check in or check out, or if they become incapacitated. With a simple shake of the phone, My Safety Buddy’s duress alarm is activated.

Accessed through any internet browser, the web portal eliminates the need for software integration. It provides a simple to use platform for the organisation to self-manage their network of users and to effectively respond to emergency situations.

When My Safety Buddy is active, the user’s wellbeing is continuously monitored. The user can nominate to have alerts sent directly to colleagues, or even family or friends.

Designed to leverage advances in both smart phone and internet technology, My Safety Buddy was a standout amongst the other technologies on display at CeBIT.
