The first emergency mobile application which leverages technology and innovation to develop a system that in the long run will help reduce crime rates and help respond to emergency situations has been developed by a group of young Nigerians.
The app known as Triggr also provides performance and situational analytics for individuals, emergency operators and government that would in the future shape how we deal with crime in Nigeria.
According to Mr. Okey Madubuike and David Echieanu, Triggr co-founders, “Triggr is a new personal security and emergency coordination mobile application for real-time location sharing, event notification and collaboration among family members, friends, and associates”.
Available on Android and iOS, Triggr is designed for both individuals and corporate organisations, who when threatened by circumstances, desire the quickest engagement with their most trusted allies regardless of physical distance, and their most approximate, reliable service providers.
