Kenyan startup Alatpres Technologies has announced the launch of its mobile solution to provide reliable emergency notification and management solutions for individuals and businesses.

Benedict Njue, the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Alatpres speaking on the development said that the startup aims to foster more collaboration between communities and safety providers while also promoting a data-driven and proactive approach to public safety management in Kenya and Africa.

It allows users to create response groups within their homes, residential places, workplaces, places of worship, and learning institutions, which are then further configured by integrating them with local first responders.

“This enables faster sharing of alerts, intelligence, and situational information in a single tab to a pre-configured response group, enabling faster response,” said Njue.

“We believe having a ready pre-configured and swift response system can make all the difference in any distress situation and can save thousands of lives and properties that would otherwise have been lost.

“These insights will be useful in crime and incident prediction and investigation, mapping of incident hotspots and generally help in promoting pro-active culture to public safety management in Kenya and Africa,” said Njue.

Launched in 2020, Alatpres develops technologies that are designed to enhance public safety through empowering communities and various entities in ways that enable more collaboration and connectedness.
