Some of the most popular services on the web are based around bringing people together in the real world, whether it's car sharing, buying a product from a stranger or meeting someone from an online dating website at a local bar. While people have undoubtedly embraced the benefits these type of services offer, there are still serious dangers that can arise that not only threaten the safety of users, but can also put the reputation of your company at risk. If your business wants to truly protect users, grow revenue and improve customer experience, then the EmergenSee SDK is the security solution that can make all the difference.
Uber, Lyft, Tinder, eBay, Nest and Airbnb are some of the hottest names in tech, and for good reason. Every year millions of people use these services to do everything from meeting a future spouse to getting a cheap ride to the airport.
Despite the fact that the vast majority of users never experience any problems, there are unfortunately still stories of fraud, sexual assault, kidnappings and other tragic events that occur when people use these services. For example, UK statistics found that the number of crimes related to dating apps increased by 560 percent over the last two years. Car sharing is experiencing new scrutiny from regulators, and part of it is tied to serious incidents. Police departments are even warning users to exercise "extreme caution" when using dating websites.
It's true that companies are often unfairly blamed for these incidents, especially when they're already investing significant resources in ensuring a safe experience for users. However, that doesn't change the fact that these are exactly the kind of incidents the media picks up on, which can sometimes do lasting damage to a company's brand. At the same time, these incidents can lead to lost business and impact investor confidence.
That's why your company needs a built-in technological solution that not only protects users from these dangers, but also offers them peace of mind should an incident arise where they feel threatened. The good news is that EmergenSee is a tried and tested security solution that already exists, and it's now easier than ever for your business to integrate this security app into your own platforms and services.
EmergenSee is a patented security solution used by millions of individuals to ensure their personal safety, allowing users to obtain help with a swipe of their smartphones.
If a user feels threatened, they can immediately use EmergenSee to activate streaming video, audio and their GPS coordinates. This information is either transferred to pre-selected contacts, such as friends or relatives, or sent to EmergenSee's security center, which is staffed 24/7.
EmergenSee's Tier-4 Homeland Security certified center tracks and records all incidents, networks with local law enforcement and ensures help is dispatched as soon as possible.
Based on the popularity of EmergenSee app for consumers, it's clear that businesses would eventually want to include the EmergenSee platform directly into their own products.

Furthermore, EmergenSee can reduce liability issues that may arise in relation to your service. In the event of a legal challenge, EmergenSee's integration into your back-end is a clear example of how your company is taking every measure to ensure safe and secure environments for users.
