While millions of women share their stories of being insecure in the city under the hashtag #textmewhenyougethome, the founders of SoSafe, haven’t found anything helpful on the market, have undertaken their own unique project - security app development with a smart button Flic.
As the number of crimes only increases, the business owners from Sweden have decided to bring to life a new digital product that would be able to improve the situation with personal security in their country.
The solution they came up with is a portable emergency button that gets connected to the SoSafe security app via bluetooth. It greatly simplifies the process of calling the security services company by automatically transmitting the necessary information such as GPS coordinates and voice signal from the crime scene.
The SoSafe project creates extensive opportunities for its team members to be a part of a productive environment that strives for innovation and growth.
It feels amazing to be a part of the SoSafe team. Every team member feels valued and you leave work every day feeling happy. Everyone is very helpful and the environment is fun and productive.
SoSafe is special because on this project you feel part of something big - your advice is listened to, your ideas are discussed on a par with others.
When motivation suddenly drops, I involuntarily remember the mission of the project, which is designed to save people's lives, the feedback of people who have already used the application and the button - motivation soars to the heavens.
The founders behind the SoSafe project also started a successful sales company. Part of the business before the Covid-19 pandemic was to go from door to door helping telecom companies find new customers. It was during one of such visits that a female seller was abused.
“That event made us start looking for solutions to create a safer work environment for our employees. When we did not find anything on the market that was good enough, we started working on our own product,” says Shivan Dana, a co-founder of SoSafe.
In 2020, the founders of SoSafe contacted Apiko with the goal of bringing their exceptional product idea to life. The security solution we have been working on since incorporates a Flic smart button, a native app for iOS and Android, and an admin web panel.
Though the founders of SoSafe understand that they can’t solve the whole societal problem of insecurity, they believe that this digital safety product can at least be a small part of a solution.
