)-- Guardian Watch™ announces its partnership with Twenty First Century Communications, Inc., a subsidiary of West Corporation. Leveraging Vicinity Based Alert Notifications™ (VBAN), Guardian Watch™ and Twenty First Century Communications (TFCC) will reach more than 10 million citizens with valuable information to help prevent crimes and save lives in the event of emergencies or disasters.
Guardian Watch™ is the first cloud-based mobile platform that connects citizens directly to public safety officials and emergency response teams to better prepare and respond to incidents. The application augments the 911 phone call enabling users to generate incident reports and stream video in real time. The VBAN will send text, email, or automated phone call alerts regarding incidents in the vicinity, near locations related to personal safety and security such as a home, child’s school, or nursing home.
“Our vision is to have our application on every smartphone in the country. The technology must be as intuitive to use as calling 911,” comments Dr. Gordon Jones, Founder and CEO, Guardian Watch™. “Creating a safe and secure environment is the reason we developed our mobile app and partnering with a leading emergency notification provider like TFCC adds immense value.”
TFCC has a long history of excellence and reliability providing critical communications for utility companies during mass outages and emergency communications. TFCC’s redundant data centers provide security and high performance reliability along with the scale to handle hundreds of thousands of simultaneous inbound and outbound communications.
The flexibility of the Guardian Watch™ application enhances the company’s ability to impact areas of public safety communications with different messages and integration points and promises to be a creative and exciting opportunity, setting a new standard of communications to foster safer communities across the country.
