Bridging Tech & Safety for Prompt SOS Alerts in Hard-to-Reach Mountain Terrains
Software & App Development
LifePass, a cutting-edge tech product by Mountain Technologies, is designed to be the beacon of hope in hard-to-reach mountainous regions, linking SOS alerts with swift rescue responses.
LifePass, a flagship offering from Mountain Technologies, had basic functionality with their initial platform but saw the vast potential for enhancement. Their vision? Comprehensive SOS alert capabilities for mountain adventurers, integrated into an intricate system with multifaceted user roles. Their primary goals included empowering resorts to manage and assign rescue operations, giving resellers the tools to oversee their sales, and equipping LifePass staff with advanced device and system management tools. Moreover, they wanted an interactive and intuitive interface for consumers to engage with their LifePass throughout their adventures.
Leveraging our vast experience working with software development and hardware, we commenced an ambitious overhaul. Starting with the LifePass Platform, we devised a multi-role system catering to Resorts, Resellers, and LifePass Staff. The highlight? An intricate geofencing module allows resorts to define zones for specific rescue teams, ensuring that the quickest response is triggered upon an SOS alert. This geofencing tool was augmented with a dynamic map view, giving a bird's-eye perspective of each resort's expanse and the location of adventurers.
In tandem, we developed a consumer-centric web app, focusing on intuitive onboarding, pass registration, and a cohesive experience for users to manage their LifePass during their expeditions. Moreover, resellers received a streamlined POS system to efficiently manage their sales and order handling.
Recognising the pivotal nature of real-time SOS alerts, we emphasised rigorous testing and optimal performance. Given the life-saving essence of LifePass, it was paramount for the platform to exhibit impeccable scalability, ensuring every SOS alert is managed with utmost urgency.
Hardware & Software Integration
Our expert experience in integrating hardware devices with bespoke software was key in the partnership with LifePass. We used our experience to integrate the LifePass devices with custom software through the Azure IoT hub to ensure that SOS alerts where handled in real-time and over-the-air comms from the device to the software where handled securely and safely. This highlighted our strength in managing both hardware and software tasks.
Together with Mountain Technologies, we improved the LifePass platform, making it essential for mountain adventurers and putting safety first.
