SAN JOSE, CA, May 13 /CNW/ - MDC (Mobile Data Corp) announces, further
to its Press Release dated March 18, 2011, that its recently released
MDC-KidTracker™ software application has been approved by BlackBerry
AppWorld and can be downloaded directly from BlackBerry AppWorld
through the following link: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/34452?lang=en
The MDC-KidTracker™ Is a software application that tracks the
whereabouts of BlackBerry smartphones and provides up to the minute
reporting of current location and recent location data points. Some
unique reporting features are available including the following:
Distance Alert Notification
The Distance Alert Notification is sent to the subscriber's preferred
email address as soon as the MDC-KidTracker™ detects that the device
has gone beyond the parameters set from an originating tracking point.
For example, a parent may select a two mile radius from a home address
within which it is acceptable for a child to be located. Should the
device that is being tracked - and presumably the child along with it -
exceed the two mile radius, a parent will receive a Distance Alert
Notification indicating that the device has traveled beyond the
pre-defined distance from the originating point. A parent can then
immediately sign in to their account on the MDC website, either on
their own computer or remotely, and see the most recent data points
transmitted through the MDC-KidTracker™ GPS tracking application and
determine where their child is currently and how he/she got there .
This function allows for a user to generate reports based on any
desired time frame; from the last five minutes to the last five hours,
or even five days and beyond. As this information is available on
demand, a parent can then take whatever steps are appropriate in
communicating with, or locating, the child.
Speed Alert Notification
A Speed Alert Notification is also available and is triggered if the
device exceeds the speed limit programmed for the device through the
Member Section of the website. This function is important as it informs
a parent that a child is perhaps in a vehicle when they should not be.
Such an event could be benign in nature, however, it could also
indicate a potentially dangerous situation that requires the parent to
take immediate action. Tracking information provided by MDC-KidTracker™
could be instrumental in achieving a safe and desirable outcome.
