Officials ink deal for mobile response app

REPORTING crimes, fire alarms and incidents may soon be just a click away on your smartphone.

A memorandum of agreement (MOA) and memorandum of undestanding (MOU) were signed by local software company SugboTek Inc. of 7Core Communications Inc. and the Association of Barangay Councils (ABC) for the Guardian application.

“The application will make incident reporting easier through your smartphone. It will alert the fire station or police station depending on the type of situation that you are facing,” said Cloyd Dedicatoria, chief executive officer of SugboTek.

Dedicatoria said they will donate hardware and software to the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) so they can immediately respond to alarms pertaining to illegal drugs and crime.

The application will be available to the public on Google Play in January for free.

For now, it will be implemented in four pilot villages. These are Barangays Apas, Tisa, Sto. Niño and Poblacion Pardo.

Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino, who attended the MOA and MOU signing yesterday, said the application will be implemented not only in Cebu but in the entire Visayas. (JOB)
