Junction client Guardian Watch™ announces the launch of version 2.0 of its multi-platform application for public safety, intended to empower citizens during emergencies and create safer communities across America. The launch campaign is centered around Atlanta, GA, a rapidly growing major metropolitan area that the company hopes will serve as a model for the power of its ground-breaking technology.
The innovative application enables users to report and stream live video directly to emergency respondents and public safety organizations, arming them with valuable information that can help prevent crime and save lives during emergencies and disasters. The latest updates include an improved user experience, a new platform for video-streaming technology, and a system for Vicinity-Based Alert Notifications by text, email, or automated phone call.
Guardian Watch™ Founder and CEO Dr. Gordon Jones is confident that citizens equipped with the application will play a more active role in the protection of their community. In fact, early pilot programs have shown overwhelmingly positive results, earning recognition from local governments and industry organizations, including recognition by the National Sheriffs’ Association in the form of the 2012 Neighborhood Watch Excellence Award.
Junction has worked with Guardian Watch™ since March of 2012, managing the brand as well as providing technical project management leading up to the launch of the new online and mobile experiences. Junction has acted as the outsourced marketing and public relations department for Guardian Watch™, leveraging findings from a comprehensive strategy engagement to execute a marketing campaign designed to attract 1 million users locally and nationwide to the platform. Building an extensive network of active subscribers to crowdsource reports and carry the dialogue is critical to the success of Guardian Watch™.
“We believe in Gordon’s vision for Guardian Watch™ and are excited about our continued involvement with the growth of the business,” comments Julie Gareleck, CEO, Junction. “The impact of this revolutionary application and the overall strength of the brand speak highly to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in this project. It is our hope that Guardian Watch™ will become the new standard-bearer of a better future of public safety.”
