IT solution provider Jawraa has partnered with Vizsafe to bring its crowdsourced safety and security platform to the GCC region.

The Vizsafe Geoware Services Platform is a crowdsourced solution which allows any person to post safety and security incidents via mobile device. The platform empowers people to participate in the safety of communities where they live, work, visit and play, the company says, by providing reporting, maps, and visual data to a centralised source for emergency personnel and venue staff.

The platform is built on the Ethereum blockchain, to enable all participants to act as an authenticated node on a safety network. Users can also earn SPOT rewards in exchange for safety reports.

"The Vizsafe platform is a powerful addition to Jawraa's portfolio of security products and communications services. The addition of Vizsafe will enable Jawraa to continue to offer our customers the most innovative solutions available," said Yasser Alobaidan, CEO of Jawraa. "With Vizsafe, our customers can enhance situational awareness and improve incident response and resolution, while reducing risk across their entire organization."

Vizsafe has deployed the Geoaware Services Platform at some of the world's most valuable facilities, including municipalities, sports and entertainment venues, schools and universities. Vizsafe's platform crowdsources, maps and distributes visual data from smartphones and other sensor networks. Security personnel, operations teams and first responders can easily and securely post, map and share incident reports from their phones with photos, videos and messages, providing real-time information that can improve response and reduce risk. This proven solution links these reports with security camera feeds and other critical sensor data to deliver total domain awareness for its customers. With the addition of blockchain technology, customers can now engage and reward their citizens, visitors or guests for providing valuable contributions to safety, security and wellbeing.
