Our new website is live! I wanted to start this blog with a few things about the company and what we are doing behind the scenes. Technology has always been a passion of mine, not to mention teaching others about it. Today we have more devices, services and products that work with each other than ever before. In our short time as a company we have made it our mission to seek out new products that have an immediate effect on people and companies that we work with. We want to listen to you the customer and bring together partners to help push our customers in the right direction. All the while paying attention to where they came from and what their true needs are.
Over the next few weeks, I will be detailing a few of the things that make our company great. It is easy to say that we have some great people, we do! If you had to ask us our people are amazing at bringing technology to our customers and making our products and services work for them. Saying is not the same as doing. What Alobi is working on falls directly in the doing category.
So what is it you might ask, that we have been doing?!? Well, we have an extremely useful Alobi.Alert
button that will help make people of all ages safer as they navigate this sometimes crazy world. We are helping sororities and fraternities to help streamline their risk management and attendance. Safety first! We are working with the restaurant industry to help bring more powerful wireless guest networks to their customers and increase social media engagement. Finally, we are working with some advanced wireless vendors to help state DOT’s advance their communications footprint with high speed wireless networks.
While it may seem that these are quite a set of varied products, and you may be right. These are solutions we are developing with the customer in mind. At the end of the day they all have one thing in common, they all work via next generation wireless access points and/or Bluetooth Low Energy. Stay tuned for more to come.
As college students across the nation head back to school to advance their education and build a future, one of the foremost things at the back of everyone’s mind is safety. Whether it be walking across campus, a nearby neighborhood or back to the car, everyone these days should be aware of their surroundings. What happens when awareness is not enough is what our company is here to assist with. In the blink of an eye one’s life can change. Reaching for your phone or fighting off an attacker may not be an option. What if there was a simpler solution that could immediately contact friends and loved ones to let them know you are in trouble and at the same time send them the location of where you are located.
Take for example this common occurrence on college campuses, students carry mace or pepper spray when they walk around at night for safety. When attending an event they are searched and told that these items present a risk to the event and have to throw it away in order to attend. This presents a problem for that student when returning to their vehicle or dorm. They are now unprotected. What is their backup plan?
There is a simple solution. An electronic button known as Alobi ALERT powered by a watch battery that is paired with your smart phone. After you have selected the contacts and message that you want to send to let them know you are in danger. When an event occurs all you have to do is press the button for a mere 2 seconds, it will call and TXT your selected contacts so that you have immediate communication with them to let them know you require assistance.
We are working hard to bring this new solution to college campuses across the nation in an effort to help provide some extra measure of safety to the student body. We have all been there as women. It is late at night on campus and you are walking to your car. There is a “blue button” 200 yards away that you have no chance of reaching and you don’t feel safe. What do you do? Press the Alobi ALERT button and let your friends and family know you may be in trouble. Immediately any would be attacker will know that you are in communication with others and it is best to move on. Problem solved!
You may also be wondering if this solution requires participation by the school you are attending. The answer is no. We hope that schools begin to embrace this solution to help protect students on their campuses and make them available to all students. The beauty of it is that it uses your built in smart phone features such as GPS and Bluetooth allowing it to operate virtually anywhere in the world to help keep you safe.
This is not a luxury, but a necessity. This is a beneficial product that can and will help the safety of others.
Have more questions? Wondering if we can speak with your college or university about a wider deployment? Feel free to drop us a line. We are happy to talk and hopefully keep everyone safer.
