"Nothing supersedes safety, health and well-being as our first priorities for more than 500 student-athletes. MyForce has a unique communications platform that expedites notification, should unsettling situations present from a security perspective.”
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 19, 2015
Student-athletes at The University of Texas soon will have the ability to access mobile security anywhere in the United States, 24/7/365, thanks to Texas Athletics' approval of a recent agreement with MyForce.
MyForce is a reliable personal security service delivered through an easy-to-use Smartphone App and a top-rated monitoring/alert center with live agents. MyForce provides users with personal security on demand through the one device they always carry with them– their Smartphone. Working across all carrier networks, MyForce arms users against real or perceived danger with the touch of a button and provides nationwide coverage, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico, as well as Canada.
The agreement was brokered and will be managed by IMG College, Texas Athletics' multimedia rights and sponsorship sales vendor. This unique opportunity and relationship allows UT students, faculty and staff, alumni and fans around the country to be connected under an umbrella of safety.
"We are pleased to provide this safety application to Texas’ men and women student-athletes," said Texas Women's Athletics Director Chris Plonsky, who supervises employees in student services and sports medicine. "Nothing supersedes safety, health and well-being as our first priorities for our more than 500 student-athletes. MyForce has a unique communications platform that expedites notification should unsettling situations present from a security perspective.”
The service will be coordinated within Texas Athletics by personnel in student services/academics and compliance/risk management services.
When danger or an emergency is perceived, MyForce members can instantly send an alert to a live, professional security team, which discretely assesses the situation while viewing information the user provides at registration to get them help faster and to identify who they are, where they are and what’s going on around them.
MyForce coordinates the exact real-time location via the user’s Smartphone GPS with the closest emergency responders and arms them with the critical information they need to help quickly. MyForce users are in reliable hands knowing an UL-Listed, 5-Diamond CSAA Certified Central Station with continuous nationwide coverage manages their crisis.
“Every second counts during an emergency, and if someone is being attacked or under duress, they don’t always have the ability to talk on the phone or text. That’s why MyForce is unique in its ability to eliminate the middle step of relaying your name and location to an emergency responder. Instead, users simply press a button and emergency responders are on the other line, tracking your location, listening and sending help immediately,” said Michael Denton, president of MyForce Texas, an authorized dealer of the MyForce service specifically focused on education, government, corporate campus security and healthcare. “We are excited about our new partnership with IMG College and Texas Athletics and look forward to providing its members with the added protection and peace of mind for users, their friends and their families.”
MyForce is a hosted service that is provided to individuals and organizations with a monthly or annual subscription costing less than a daily cup of coffee. Home security systems, relegated to a specific physical location, cost $35-$45 per month for service. At as low as $9.99/month or $99.99/year, MyForce protects users nationwide where there is cellular service. MyForce offers UT students, faculty and staff, alumni and fans a significant discount off the retail subscription price at a special Longhorns website,
“We are thankful to partner with organizations like IMG and Texas Athletics, who place a high value on optimizing the personal security of its constituents. They recognize the need for reliable, on-the-go security as people go about their daily activities in an unpredictable and sometimes violent world,” said MyForce CEO & Co-Founder Brad Zotti.
MyForce is a one-of-a-kind, national personal security system that arms users against real or perceived danger with the touch of a button sent from any Smartphone (iPhone, Android or Blackberry) working across all carrier networks. MyForce is the first and only system to provide a 5-Diamond CSAA Certified security monitoring team that responds, tracks, and follows up with every alert. MyForce gives users confidence and security against threats and provides families with freedom from worry, 24/7/365 nationwide.
