How Evoxyz Technologies Ensures the Safety of Children
Like many other great inventions, Evoxyz Technologies was born out of necessity. According to Shilpa Mahna Bhatnagar, the CEO and Co-founder of Evoxyz Technologies, she opened up her company because despite the millions of dollars invested in recreational apps, very little has been done for the development of child security software.
“We launched our product targeting security of children between the age group of two-and-a-half and 12 years,” said Bhatnagar. “The IoT device offers the live location of the child and safety alert to parents or schools.”
Evoxyz currently offers two solutions: EvoSchool and EvoTag.
Evoschool is a communication device that teachers can use. It uses GPS tracking technology to provide real-time location alerts, automatically logs attendance when a child reaches his or her school, and records a child’s location. The EvoTag, on the other hand, offers a home security solution that alerts parents of their childs’ whereabouts via an app.
A need for better monitoring
The need for stricter monitoring of Indian school children was influenced by the public outcry regarding crimes against children. According to an article written by the Wall Street Journal, almost 60,000 Indian children in 2011 “were reported missing from a total of 28 states and union territories.” What’s even worse is almost 40% of those children are yet to be found. According to stats, West Bengal has the highest number of missing children with over 12,000 impending cases. Madhya Pradesh was second, with 7,800 missing kids, and Delhi, with 5,100 cases.
Creating a difference with the public in mind
Broadband internet is becoming more available to the world, and new devices are being built with Wi-Fi capabilities and data for additional connectivity. But while Verizon-company Telogis says that the costs of technology and software development for IoT devices continue to go down, Shilpa says that it will be difficult to crack the IoT scene in India. Hence, why her company doesn’t plan on developing devices for their solutions and instead only offer them as service platforms.
“Though we are selling IoT devices on our platform, we want to give the freedom to our users to buy hardware device from anywhere and just enable the service on the device,” says Bhatnagar.
What Evoxyz is doing right now is manufacturing plug-and-play solutions for end users to minimize the reliance on hardware.
Plans in the future
Shilpa says that the service her company provides is a configurable solution for micro-location tracking. It can be easily integrated into other service provider’s products to enable quick development of location-based solutions.
Evoxyz don’t just develop tracking solutions, the company also aims to provide a variety of features based on the data they gather. The company’s solutions can assist other businesses with data collection, help upstarts to have a quicker turnaround time for their products, and assist location-based companies to focus on the use of an already-built product instead of developing software from scratch.
