The Namola app – the smarter way to stay safe
People often say that there’s safety in numbers. And they’re right. That’s why over 150 000 South Africans have already downloaded Namola – the free, crime response app that helps users receive emergency assistance and #gethelpfast when they need it most.
According to Warwick Scott-Rodger, Executive Head of Namola’s sponsor, Dialdirect: “Once activated, Namola allows users to share their GPS coordinates, name, and nature of the emergency with a 24/7 response call centre that can verify incident details and assist in the rapid deployment of the correct emergency responders. The feedback that we have been receiving from users of Namola has been fantastic and has enabled Namola’s ongoing growth as the most downloaded safety app in the country.”
In fact, Namola actually encourages users to test the Namola App, not only to see the incredible response time, but also to make sure that they’re always ready to use it in case of an emergency.
As Namola’s CEO, Peter Matthaei says: “A safe South Africa is only possible when working together: government, business and communities. The public’s encouragement and constructive feedback means the world to our team, as we keep on building and strengthening a safety network across South Africa."
These are just a few of the reasons why the app was recently recognised as the Social Betterment App of the Year in the annual Stuff Awards. It’s free, easy-to-use and it offers users a much faster, more convenient – and much smarter – way to always stay safe.
Namola is supported by Dialdirect and the SABC Foundation. Download it free, either from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or visit www.namola.com.
