Get Home Safe is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed to improve welfare monitoring for remote or lone employees. The original app was conceived in 2012 when founder and CEO Boyd Peacock was living in Queenstown, and considered the ability of smartphones to revolutionise personal safety for workers in wilderness settings. He quickly saw the potential to extend the service to other sectors employing workers in solo or lone roles.
The company now provides support to over 10,000 people across over nearly 250 customers, mainly in New Zealand and increasingly in Australia and UK, as well as USA and Canada. Its clients include local government entities, health and social care operators, security firms, utilities and many more.
Punakaiki Fund invested into Get Home Safe Limited in December 2020.
