Security and safety platform Aura has partnered with The Courier Guy. As part of the partnership, Aura will provide the courier company with safety for its drivers and customer packages through a mobile panic app and an Internet-of-Things (IoT) linked panic button.

This allows The Courier Guy drivers to immediately request rapid mobile emergency response in the event of an accident or the threat of a crime such as theft or hijacking.
As soon as the panic button or app are activated, the Aura-powered platform auto-dispatches the closest armed response vehicle to the driver’s location anytime, anywhere within South Africa.
“We wanted to enhance the safety of our drivers as well as our customer's packages with a simple but extremely effective deterrent. We have already seen a significant reduction in the number of incidents which is a win for our valued staff and customers,” says Stephen Gleisner, managing director at The Courier Guy.
Aura founder and CEO, Warren Myers, explains that as soon as a driver activates the panic button, a payload consisting of the user’s name, phone number and an updated location is sent into Aura's API.
“Once received, via an aggregated network of 180-armed response companies across the country with live responder technology in their vehicles, all responders who are within 10 minutes are immediately notified. The first responder to accept the panic response is then directed to the user via the fastest route. The physical panic buttons connect to our platform via the Sigfox network and boast a three-year battery life, ” says Myers.
