Ensuring the safety of lone workers with an innovative mobile app from young Kiwi entrepreneur Boyd Peacock.

The Brief

The original vision for GetHomeSafe included two "guardian angel" personal safety mobile apps for commercial and public audiences alike. The app is a self-monitoring solution to give you peace of mind knowing your friends or team are OK. With major changes in health and safety compliance laws the need for a robust and reliable way to monitor staff, especially lone or remote workers, has never been more in demand or necessary. The Firebrand team developed a beautiful app, brand and website alongside an innovative marketing strategy. We have recently updated the entire brand and look and feel for GetHomeSafe, and we are loving the result!

The Solution

Firebrand's full-service offering included the custom design and development of the GetHomeSafe app (available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store), a responsive website and branding. We worked on special developments including a call center feature, live dashboard viewing via a web portal and SpotNZ integration with the newest mobile satellite networks in the industry. GetHomeSafe is a  certified cloud service provider to the New Zealand government and we are excited to be shareholders and service providers for this innovative product taking on the world of safety.


The Result

Since its launch, GetHomeSafe has onboarded thousands of users and organisations. The corporate app is used extensively across the Globe including the UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The app has been taken up by global companies such as Schneider Electric, operating worldwide with many remote teams. It is used across most industries with a particular focus on tourism, agriculture, healthcare, security and construction who all benefit from the enhanced safety the app provides their workers.

"For the past six years Firebrand has consistently taken our vague rambling instructions of what we are looking for, made it their own and returned a world class solution that looks as good as it functions. Working with Firebrand is a long term partnership that just gets better and better with time."
