A new innovation aiming to keep travelling groups safer is set to launch at International CES, arguably the biggest technology trade show in the world. Group-Muv! is a wrist worn device which monitors the real-time location of each group member, allowing organizers and group leaders to find people through a smartphone app.
Group-Muv! is debuting at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on 6th January 2016. CES is the world’s gathering place for new technologies and offers a launchpad for tech companies from all over the globe. Last year over 3,000 companies exhibited and CES welcomes over 170,000 attendees.
Emile Cauwenbergh, CEO of Group-Muv! said, “We are so excited to be launching our product at one of the world’s most esteemed technology events. With experience planning trips for large groups and helping groups move efficiently through transport hubs, we have designed an innovative solution to improve group safety. Group-Muv! is an unobtrusive device which could not only keep group members safer, it could also help them to feel more calm and relaxed in unfamiliar surroundings knowing their location is being tracked.”
Safety is the top priority for any group, whether it is a school trip or tourist excursion. There is always potential for group members to get lost in new places, which could be a huge problem for businesses with a duty of care. Group-Muv! eliminates these dangers by keeping groups together and improving safety procedures. It is especially helpful for vulnerable groups such as children or the elderly.
By utilizing Bluetooth technology and an internet connection – available to all smartphones – the Group-Muv! app relays real-time information to a trip organiser or management team. With a simple dashboard group leaders can see the status and distance away of each group member, and click on an individual to see their current location.
This simple solution helps keep people together, whether groups are navigating an airport or exploring the Amazon. Businesses using Group-Muv! can also give peace of mind to family members of individuals that they will be returned safely from their trip.
