Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
MyForce has partnered with SafeTracks GPS Solutions to offer the proactive personal safety service under the name MyForce Canada and expand the coverage area to include the United States, Puerto Rico, and now Canada.
MyForce transforms your smartphone into a cutting-edge personal security device for those situations when you’re walking alone, feel unsafe, or find yourself in a potentially dangerous situation, especially during the season of waning daylight. By simply touching a button, MyForce members are able to send an alert to a 24/7 monitoring team to get help fast.
“Making MyForce available to the Canadian market place will allow users to get an added layer of security by simply downloading an app to their smartphone. SafeTracks is thrilled to bring this exciting product to Canada,” Bob Aloisio, Director of Business Development at SafeTracks.
Unlike other personal safety offerings, MyForce allows a member to get help from a trained, professional security team that is UL listed and recognized as a Five Diamond Central Station by the industry. By touching a single button on a smartphone, the user instantaneously transmits all of the information necessary to get help: personal information provided at registration (name, photo, phone number, emergency contacts, and known safety issues), audio of what is happening, and real-time GPS location information. Emergency responders can then act swiftly and efficiently to provide emergency response to the user’s exact location.
“MyForce is a perfect holiday gift because of those universal situations where you feel a concern for your safety, but it doesn’t make sense to call 911,” said Brad Zotti, CEO and co-founder of MyForce. “MyForce members are able to be proactive about their safety when walking alone at night, going to unfamiliar places or meeting unfamiliar people. We often rely on calling friends or family to be on the phone with us in these situations, but these well-intentioned people are not necessarily the best ones to come to our aid or provide help if needed. MyForce connects its members to a professionally trained and certified monitoring team that stands ready 24/7 to respond to its members’ alerts.”
