“Women are no longer the weaker sex and this Independence Day is one more occasion to celebrate the fact that they have come a long way from being just traditional homemakers. Though, sexual harassment has terrorized women to such an extent that going out alone or working late is a challenge for them. This is affecting their overall productivity and is posing threat to organizational growth too. To fix these fears and make a difference that would bring real freedom for these women, we decided to develop an app which is smart and cater to increasing security issues, says CP Singh, Founder & Chief Mentor, Smart Group.
SMART Group believes that this technology will prove to be of great help in curbing issues like assaults on women, ragging in colleges, medical emergencies, road accidents, any personal security threat and so on.
