One Touch Response launches "SAFE CALL" monitoring service in Delhi NCR

New Delhi, Jan 8 (IBNS): India's first personal emergency and safety startup One Touch Response has announced the launch of a new feature within its app called Safe Call Monitoring service.

Safe Call  is a monitoring service that provides an added assurance to its users while travelling through unknown neighbourhoods, commuting during day or night, or when on a long journey.

"Safe Call service can be activated via the OTR app by a subscribed user of the service. It uses the GPS on the smartphone to follow their whereabouts, and constantly checks on  them via a call made to the user at regular intervals as pre-determined, up to the point the user reaches his/her destination safely.When the OTR team senses an emergency, or cannot reach the user  then its Immediate Assessment Teams (IATs), are activated to reach the user within 15 minutes. The IAT’s then remain with the user till the emergency is closed," read an official statement.

Manoj Chandra, CEO, One Touch Response said, “One Touch Response is the first of its kind service to combine a smartphone safety application with state-of-the-art technology, backed by on ground physical response assistance. We believe that such a complete offering, that is on the lines of services available in leading markets like the US, Europe and Israel, is the need of the hour, in response to rising safety and security incidents.” He added, “In a sense a person should consider OTR service to be their personal safety assistant.”
