ACASIA Sofea: Keeping you safe on your travels, an ACASIA service
ACASIA Sofea is a personal safety and early travel warning solution that provides real-time status on warnings, alerts, and localized security information wherever you are. ACASIA Sofea 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.
Global Warning System together with ACASIA have for several years provided International Businesses, NGO’s and Government Agencies with high-end travel security and convenience through the ACASIA Sofea app. Now you can have it too.
The ACASIA Sofea app for leisure travellers is based on the same groundbreaking positioning and warning information technology that made ACASIA Sofea Pro for Businesses successful, while adding features more relevant to the casual leisure traveller. The technology automatically filters warnings and information 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 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.
