Omantel Safeture: Keeping you safe on your travels, a Global Warning System (GWS) service
Omantel Safeture is a personal safety and early travel warning solution that provides real-time status on warnings, alerts, and localized security information wherever you are including local SOS emergency numbers.
Omantel Safeture lets you alert your friends and family and give them a real-time trail of your movements when you are walking home in an unfamiliar environment. GWS have for several years provided International Businesses, NGO’s and Government Agencies with high-end travel security and convenience through their apps. Now you can have it too.
The Omantel Safeture app for leisure travelers is based on the same groundbreaking positioning and warning information technology that made GWS successful, while adding features more relevant to the casual leisure traveler. The technology automatically filters warnings and information such as dangerous environmental disasters, civil unrest , disease outbreaks and terrorist attacks to you based on where you are in the world or where you are going. This means relevant real-time warning information before anyone else, avoiding spam information.
The app keeps you and your loved ones safe and avoid threats while staying in touch wherever you are. Share your position, get local alerts and warnings, stay connected to your friends and family, and get automated local advice when arriving at a new destination.
Omantel Safeture means:
* Fast information: You and/or your loved ones get alerts and warnings before anyone else and may avoid safety threats, travel delays, fires, extreme weather such as tsunamis, flash floods, natural disasters, civil unrest, terrorism etc. when travelling
* Peace of mind: Allows you to follow the whereabouts of family or friends that are touring the world and them to follow you
* In the know, on the go: Local news in English, country general safety and trip advice, local SOS and emergency numbers; all automated based on real-time location
Safeture relies on continued use of GPS running in the background which can dramatically decrease battery life. However due to smart throttling of the GPS the impact is reduced to a minimum.
