Gurgaon - Sept. 11, 2014?SafetiPin today released a new feature, the SafetyScore, to help people know more about the safety of different areas and avoid unsafe places. It is available on both Apple and Android platforms.
“The SafetyScore is useful for anyone stepping out for a meal at night, visiting a new city or renting a place to stay”, said Kalpana Viswanath, co-founder, SafetiPin. “It can help all of us, specially women, make better choices and be better prepared”.
The SafetyScore is a measure of safety in a public place – represented by a number between 0 and 5 – ranging from Poor (between 0 and 1) and Excellent (between 4 and 5). It is largely based on data from more than 15,000 audits conducted using the SafetiPin app over the past year. The SafetyScore considers a number of parameters during audits – including lighting, security, and availability of public transport.
A slider allows a user to increase the area being considered for the score. “Not only can you see the SafetyScore for a place like a restaurant, you can expand the area to see the score for an entire neighbourhood. This is particularly useful if you are looking to move to a new place”, said Ashish Basu, co-founder, SafetiPin.
The new SafetyScore combines well with other existing SafetiPin features, specially the Tracking feature. Anyone visiting an unsafe area can turn it on, and let their friends and family track their movements.
The SafetiPin app is presently being used by end-users, city planners and public service providers to plan for public safety. The new SafetyScore will further enhance this capability by providing a method to consolidate information.
SafetiPin is a map-based mobile phone application that makes our communities and cities safer by providing safety-related information collected by users and trained auditors.
SafetiPin provides information about infrastructure to promote safety for women and other groups, to citizens at large and important stakeholders including the government, NGO’s, corporations and citizen groups.
