ARLINGTON, Va., June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveSafe, the world's leading mobile safety communications platform, is providing personal security and safety solutions for corporate employees and executives traveling to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics.
Using LiveSafe's SafeWalk and SafetyMap, corporate users traveling abroad will have access to safety and security features that will allow them to stay connected with corporate security officials and feel empowered to control their own safety.
"Safety and security are always top of mind for chief security officers, especially for companies that are sending employees to events like the Olympics," LiveSafe CEO Carolyn Parent said. "LiveSafe is working with our clients to provide solutions so their employees can feel more secure when they are on the ground in Brazil."
Among the features users will have access to is SafetyMap, which will show users in real time the location of nearby police stations, hospitals and grayed-out areas deemed no-go zones due to security concerns.
Using SafeWalk, users will be able to have a virtual escort by corporate security officials or friends and family as they walk from point to point. Users will also have immediate access to corporate safety and security protocols, like evacuation plans, pre-loaded onto their phones for emergency situations, and will be able to call Brazil's version of 911 or corporate security with the push of a button.
LiveSafe enables two-way, real-time interaction between individuals and security and facilities teams. The convenience of using a smartphone to ask for help is a game-changing way to open up communication on safety- and security-related concerns. Users can send text, photos, videos and precise location information to report incidents ranging from routine maintenance needs to suspicious activity to safety threats.
Businesses, hospitals, malls, college campuses and large sports and entertainment arenas use LiveSafe's platform to create a safer environment for employees and customers.
