your guardian angel

GetHomeSafe is the brainchild of young Kiwi entrepreneur Boyd Peacock based in Queenstown, New Zealand. His vision of mobile based personal safety is now a reality with the GetHomeSafe App. We joined forces with Boyd back in 2011 and have been providing support in the form of app and development, branding and marketing strategy ever since.

the brief

The vision for GetHomeSafe was a duo of 'guardian angel' personal safety mobile apps targeted at commercial and public audiences alike. A self-monitoring solution to give you a peace of mind knowing your friends or team are OK. With recent health and safety changes the need for a robust and reliable way to monitor staff especially lone or remote workers has never been more in demand. But first we needed to develop the beautiful app and then market it through branding, strategy and a website.

the solution

Our full-service offering includes the custom design and development of the GetHomeSafe app (available on the App Store or Google Play), a responsive website and branding. We've been working on some exciting new features including a new call center feature, live dashboard viewing via a web portal, and SpotNZ integration which uses one of the newest mobile satellite networks in the industry. Recently certified as a cloud service to the New Zealand government we are excited to be shareholders and service providers.

the results

Since its launch, the app has onboarded over 6000 public users and 50 corporate users. The Corporate App is being used in the UK, US, Canada, Australia and of course New Zealand. Being used by big globals such as Schiender Electric operating worldwide with many remote teams. Nationally our industries such as tourism, agriculture, healthcare, and construction are benefitting from the app. 

For the past six years Firebrand have consistently taken our vague rambling instructions of what we are looking for, made it their own and return 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.
