Today Guardly announced that the Crime Prevention Association of Toronto (CPAT) has selected their mobile safety technology to enable community users to report suspicious activities with their smartphones.
According to the announcement, the Toronto startup's mobile mass notification system (MMNS) and inbound emergency alerting solutions were chosen by CPAT due to their "high scalability and robust functionality" to support North America's 5th largest city.
The solution, powered by Guardly technology, will be rolled out as notifEYE mobile, a Neighborhood Watch project to improve civic engagement–particularly youth and diverse populations–and alignment with city police resources.
“We have conducted a thorough research and evaluation process to determine the best public safety technology solution in the market. Guardly mobile safety technology was the best choice,” said Jeff Paulin, President of CPAT.
notifEYE mobile will be available through subscription in the coming months. Ideally suited for cities, municipalities and communities, Guardly puts a "smart", one-touch duress button onto the smartphones of each resident, enabling them to report emergencies more effectively.
As Guardly mobile safety technology has proven to reduce response times by up to 44 percent and provide significant savings to the security teams, it promises to serve as an integral part of Toronto efforts to prevent crime and create a safer community.
Guardly is one of 17 startups participating in next month's 48 Hours in the Valley hosted by the C100.
