Founded in 2012 by entrepreneur Boyd Peacock, Get Home Safe Limited is based in the adventure capital of New Zealand, Queenstown.
Boyd grew up in the Fiordland region of New Zealand, one of the remotest places on earth, where staying safe can depend on getting help from others. He also worked for extended periods of time in remote regions Canada, Australia and NZ as a land surveyor, often working alone or in isolation and relying heavily on clunky systems of checking in to confirm he was ok.
Boyd quickly saw the potential of smartphones to revolutionise personal safety, from the wilderness to everyday life and especially for working alone.
This vision of revolutionising safety is now a reality in the GetHomeSafe’s - Personal Safety app which provides a free Guardian Angel service to the general public for personal and recreational use. After shooting straight to number one on the New Zealand App Store Charts on launch, the original app has grown to be very popular worldwide. It was also a finalist in the 2013 New Zealand innovation awards for Innovation in Marketing and Communication.
Get Home Safe has expanded over time and now offers a significantly more comprehensive safety solution in GetHomeSafe - Corporate, focusing on monitoring the well-being of any group of people traveling or working alone.
We are on a mission to take safety from being a boring but necessary part of life and turn it into a beautiful service that everybody will understand and enjoy using regularly.
We pride ourselves on being a trustworthy and respectable service provider.
We stand for people who get out and live an awesome life, who push their comfort zones and take responsibility for their own safety.
We believe in providing beautifully designed and quality software that both users and their contacts will love to use.
We believe in conducting business as a Guardian Angel and never ever, as a big brother.
We follow industry best practices to ensure the security of all personal data we store.
We believe free is good, but we are not a charity.
Most importantly we would love to hear your feedback, suggestions and any general chat about making the world a safer place!
