End-to-end fully integrated response and service solution
Meet CEO, Marlize Holtzhausen:
the passionate entrepreneur who founded Response24.
After her sister was brutally attacked, Marlize felt driven to act and find a solution that could prevent or reduce the impact of traumatic experiences for victims of crime.
Using her extensive experience in the cellular network and communications industry, Marlize began formulating a business plan that would turn a mobile phone into a panic button that could summon help to your exact location without relying on explaining to someone where you are or waiting for the next available operator.
She explains: “In a country with so many different languages, that issue is multiplied. So, I set out to develop a system that would allow people to get the help they needed, fast, by cutting out the human dynamic of the call centre.”
This simple innovation shaves critical minutes off of response times and gives users the best possible chance for a positive outcome.
Through Response24, Marlize wants to give everyday South Africans the security of knowing that, in the event of an emergency, they carry the power in their pockets to make every second count in their favour.
We understand first-hand the challenges that our farming communities are facing today. Our recently launched Farmers24 app has been developed to support South Africa’s farmers through the challenges that they are currently facing by offering a real and effective solution.
Farmers24 is a mobile app that enables you to create Communities of Safety to call for help instantly if you are attacked or feel threatened. Our breakthrough technology gives you the ability request help for yourself, and on behalf of neighbours and family, by:
• Connecting you directly to emergency response services and local farm security infrastructures, with the simple push of a button.
• Triggering an alert on behalf of a family member, friend or neighbour – immediately sending them local security backup, an ambulance or armed response, with their correct details, and accuracy of location up to five metres.
• Setting a geo fence / radius around your farm to notify you when a loved one enters or leaves the set area. This way you have better visibility and you can help instantly when needed.
Integration with reliable business partners ensures that service is efficient, effective and affordable
