A free app available to staff, students and members of the public has been launched by Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
AUT Safe has been designed with the university’s campuses in mind but has valuable safety tools for everyone.
Friend Walk is an innovative service allowing anyone to invite a friend to watch you travel between locations in real-time.
Chief Information Officer, Liz Gosling, says AUT Safe is an example of the university taking advantage of simple, global technology that can benefit the AUT whanau within its three campuses and beyond.
“AUT Safe allows us to send alerts in the case of emergencies, provides important information about our campuses and has functionality like Friend Walk that is useful to anyone wanting to feel a little safer,” she said.
AUT Safe software was developed by AppArmor Mobile and is used by universities and organisations around the world.
AUT Safe is free and can be downloaded from app stores, or via the QR code
