Transight Systems Launches ‘Guardians’ – a new app to track school children at Rajagiri School
Kochi – With rising crimes and accidents, often right information at the right time and place can prevent a lot of agony. Supporting this concept, Kochi-based start-up Transight Systems Pvt. Ltd., has launched their latest solution – Guardians – an app that will protect the school going children from any untoward events, by passing their current location and other details to the parents and the school.
This innovative app has been first launched in Rajagiri Public School Kalamassery. Guardians was officially inaugurated at the school premises by Shri Tomin J Thachankary IPS, Transport Commissioner Kerala in the presence of Rev. Father Varghese Kachapilly, Director Rajagiri Schools; Rev. Father Sajan Kollassery, Asst. Director, Susan Varghese Cherian, Principal, Feroz Rehman, CEO, Transight Systems and Gis George, COO, Transight Systems.
“Guardians is a smart identification system that includes Smart Identity Card for each student and Radio Frequency Card Reader with GNSS/GPS Transight models, which will be installed in school buses. All these devices are connected to the Transight Cloud Account of the school where movement of students and buses are managed. Every parent will get their own accounts in this cloud, and once the Application is downloaded they will receive all updates and alerts live on their Smart Phones as and when their child boards and alight the school bus. Guardian also has some other interesting features like leave reporting, live tracking, absent reports etc. If required, one can also alter the boarding point using the Application.” Explained Feroz Rehman detailing the app to the gathering.
Citing the benefits of this tool he added, Guardians will help parents to monitor and manage their child’s transportation by keeping a track on their school bus approaching the boarding stop and school, parents can receive instant notifications as soon as their child successfully boards the bus, reaching the school premises with additional updates of bus movements throughout their journey. Parents can report the leave request of their child through this application which in-turn help to ensure the child’s safety by identifying non-reported absence, and parents will also get the attendance reports of their child which is shared from the school records.
For the schools, School Management will be notified with instant reports of the absent students as soon as the bus enters and leaves the school premises and the authorities will get all the leave requests directly from the parents before regular class time, thus ensuring the safety of children by identifying any unreported absence instantly.
“Guardians is a first of its kind product that gives parents a live update on the movement of their children to school and back. The GPS embedded app helps parents to track the movement of the bus vis-à-vis some of the similar products in the current market that only provides updates via sms to parents. Soon we also plan to bring in more features to Guardians that will integrate a lot of the school activities directly with the parents.” Said Gis George.
