Mumbai, Dec 19 (PTI) With an aim of preventing rising crimes against women and children in the country, a new mobile application called 'Ziman', a 24x7 virtual protector, was today launched by an IT company here. "With incidents of crime rising day by day, Zicom Electronic Security Systems Ltd, has created a unique mobile application to provide 24x7 response services to the victim in danger, besides informing their family members," Pramoud Rao, Managing Director of the company told a press conference here.
In a press release, the company claimed that during an emergency, one can activate Ziman in five seconds by just pressing the power button on smartphone five times when the person is in any danger which will send out alerts to your emergency contacts requesting for help.
Even after an incident has occurred, Ziman helps by providing an emergency map that provides a list of emergency services located in the vicinity of the incident. After the launch of this fingertip solution to prevent crimes, Zicom organised a panel discussion moderated by Viveck Shettyy, All India Head of Media Cell for CGSI and MD, Indus Communications, it said.
