Two years on and growing fast
August 5th 2013 seems like yesterday, but a lot has happened in the world of GetHomeSafe since we launched our first free personal safety app just over two years ago.
Our biggest highlight has been our free safety app was a finalist in the New Zealand Innovation awards 2013 for innovation in Marketing and Communication.
We launched our Android safety app and internationally on both platforms in late 2013. We have spent time at number one in the NZ iTunes charts and in the life style category charts of many countries around the globe since. Currently were are number 3 in Sri Lanka for free Lifestyle Apps!
Our numbers of new users signing up seems to grow relentlessly, with over a 1000 new downloads in the first week of September alone!
We have heard of the App helping a hunter out of a “tricky situation”, but most of all the main reward has been the reassurance it has given to thousands of users.
We pride ourselves on giving people what they want and have worked on multiple new features for the apps over the past two years. Our biggest requests and main focus has been for a better tool for workplace health and safety and more specifically a better tool for monitoring a large work force of people using our safety app at the same time.
All the feedback from our first 12 months has been collated and our design team has come up with the GetHomeSafe – Corporate dashboard and we think it is pretty awesome!
Similar to a Facebook and Linkedin home page the GHS dashboard gives you a live feed of what is happening in your company, a map of where everyone is and most importantly a company wide status bar indicating who is “Ok” and who is “not home safe”.
With the GetHomeSafe – Corporate package nearing completion and our next round of funding underway the next 12 months are looking very exciting indeed!
