-- Syracuse, NY – June 18, 2012
- Syracuse’s new venture accelerator, StartFast, is hosting an exclusive summer program for innovative startups. Guard My Angel, by Cayo-Tech, is one of startups, out of more than 300 companies, taking part in this program. Since joining the program, Guard My Angel’s development and go to market initiatives have boosted its ratings in the Google Play Store to 4.8 out of 5 – indicating its mobile application is well received in the market. Guard My Angel
is a free mobile application, which provides automatic and semi-automatic notifications to assigned contacts that ensures the safety and security of people when in transit. It works by allowing users to select contacts that he/she wishes to notify in the event of an emergency or unforeseen incident. Then, before the user goes out, they set a timer for approximately how long the activity should take and as the activity approaches its end the user presses a button, turning off the timer, indicating that they are OK. In the event that the user is unable to press the all-clear button, an automatic notification is sent to the the previously identified trusted contacts containing relevant information including location so the contact could call for help or, if nearby, come to the user’s aid. Additional features allow secure notification to alert trusted contacts should someone be in an uncomfortable situation.
The application is currently available for Android phones on the Google Play Store with an iOS version coming soon. For more information, visit http://www.guardmyangel.com
