Tvm: As part of its CSR activity, UST Global, a leading IT Services Company in association with Kanthari, a project of the Trivandrum based International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs (IISE), has launched iSave, a free mobile application on the Android platform for women. iSave will enable women to pre-programme key contacts for an automatic sms in case of an emergency.

Talking to Kerala IT News on the sidelines of the CII Conference on Trivandrum Global City of Innovation, Alexander Varghese, Country Head, UST Global said, “It’s a small contribution from our side for the women of Trivandrum on the International Women’s Day today. The Android App can be programmed to alert up to five different numbers, which can be relatives or even the police. In an emergency, the person needs to press one button. The application also has the capacity to track their movement through GPS even if the mobile is switched off. This feature can be very useful in a worst case scenario like kidnapping.”

Trivandrum Global City of Innovation (TGCi) is a venture of Kanthari International and as the event fell on International Women’s Day, CII and TGCi announced a series of initiatives to empower and cultivate women within the region to become forces of positive social change.

C Padmakumar, Chairman, CII Trivandrum Zone said, “CII believes that Trivandrum can be a Global City of Innovation only if it becomes a city which attracts women because it is safe, has a great quality of life, and is a place where women can work, relax and fulfil their promise and potential. The iSave app is one such initiative in support of female empowerment.”

Alexei Levene, Director, IISE said, “UST Global is one of our Technology partners and we are closely working with them to launch several innovative products. Our Technology partners collaborate around technology in support of the TGCi vision. The app can be downloaded via tgci.in”.
