Parents and schools can now actively monitor their children’s movement enroute to school and home and also within the school premises, thanks to a smartphone app that a Gurgaon-based software company has developed.

The company showcased the app “Evoschool” at an event here on Saturday.

“Through technology platform such as Evoschool, we can empower and strengthen the country’s capability and response time to prevent and protect children from violence, exploitation, abuse and effects of conflict,” said Shilpa Mahna Bhatnagar, CEO of the company.

The app offers secure communication which can be monitored only by an authorised parent or guardian.

It also provides a real time location of the bus on the map and enables the guardian to monitor activities and movements of the child.

The app sends notifications and alerts, enabling outdoor and indoor location tracking.
