Integration enables mobile emergency assistance
When Zurich, one of the world’s leading insurance groups, wanted to provide a cross-platform, location-based mobile emergency assistance service to their Travel Insurance customers worldwide, they came to us for help. We simultaneously designed and built the Zurich Nomad apps for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry, and the supporting web services. The apps provide Zurich customers with quick and easy access to the emergency assistance line and provides operators with critical emergency contact and location information, even in the case where the user is incapacitated. Each app deeply integrates with each device’s location based services functionality; GPS, aGPS, WiFi and Cell-tower location sources were all used.
