Rapid Tourist Response: Assisting South Africa’s Visitors
Tourists are important to our economy and should be able to explore our country in a carefree manner. Unfortunately, things do go wrong. This mobile application is aimed at providing tourists with emergency support as well as notify all emergency response services. In the event of an emergency or a crime, live, one-touch button built into the mobile application will immediately notify the tourist's selected loved ones, as well as all emergency response services. The app will supply the emergency support services with real-time relevant information to ensure help is on its way fast. The app also offers services to make an appointment with a doctor or allow loved ones the safety and assurance of the 'follow me' feature. The application’s primary aim is to improve response time and the quality of emergency service delivery thereby reducing the extent of trauma.
