The growing security concerns among parents school and administration alike with regards to child safety has led Gurgaon based tech-start-up Evoxyz Technologies to launch an app called EvoSchool, through which the whereabouts of a child can be tracked.
The app comes with a waterproof badge which enables GPS tracking. This helps in tracking the location of the wearer on the go. The live location can be seen on the app which can be downloaded on to your smartphone. It can also be accessed directly through a computer.
Parents as well as school administration can keep a tab on the students to prevent security incidents from occurring inside the school premises till the child reaches home. The app can generate SMS alerts as well.
The app offers a host of other facilities such as attendance report, homework information, examination results, circulars, event related information and emergency notifications while ensuring complete data privacy.
Shilpa Mahna Bhatnagar, CEO and co-founder of Evoxyz Technologies, said, “The idea behind creating EvoSchool is to provide a safe, easy and cost-effective communication platform among school administration, teachers, kids and parents.”
Many schools, such as the Suncity School, Cradle to Crayons, Gurgoan, MRV Kids Paradise, Tilak Nagar, Model Nursery School, Ashok Vihar and Euro Kids, Ludhiana, have already signed up for the platform.
The start-up specializes in configurable and scalable platforms for micro-location tracking that can be integrated by other solution providers to enable quick development of location based solutions. The company is also working towards solution-specific domains such as child security, health care, retail customer experience enhancement, home security and lost & found, among others.
There are a few other apps in the market through which can parents keep a track on their wards such as Sygic Family, which can track the location and battery levels of the smartphone your child is carrying; Life360, which, in addition to tracking the GPS location, offers panic button facility and location alerts on preset zones, location history, emergency assistance as well as group chats; mamaBear, which provides GPS tracking and watches over your child’s social media activities; Google Latitude, through which you can locate your family members on a map by adding them through their Gmail address; among others.
