Track Your Kids Pathway to School with Nugrean.
A recent Thailand-based startup has launched with its main objective being to comfort any worried parents. Set up by the same founders as Locaze, Nugrean is a school bus tracking application that marks down the movement of the bus on a map, allowing parents as well as teacher to gain an idea of where their children are during the journeys to and from school.
Accord to CEO Shotiwan Wattanalarp, the team came up with this idea for Nugrean by concentrated on two main problems: the safety and the quality of life for Children
“The statistics of crime and accidents related to children has an increasing trend every year,” he noted. “All around social media and networks, you can find reports of lost or missing children, death of children and children left inside cars or houses or schools. With Nugrean, parents or guardians will be kept closer to their children, guaranteeing the safety of their children in all aspects.”
Currently, Wattanalarp further elaborated, their test have gone quite seamlessly, and the responses from parents and schools have remained positive.
“We did a technical test with a signal transmitter and the Nugrean app, and the result was great and impressive. Our next step is the linking up with all schools for tracking boundaries and making sure the functions do not breach any Thai laws practically and legally,” he said.
At the moment Nugrean plans to start off small, gaining the trust among Thai school and parents.
“Only after we get permission from schools will we start the real operation in a school bus. However, most schools trust us, and also believe that Nugrean will increase the safety and the quality of life for children,” he noted.
“The safety of students is for now the first priority of Nugrean. For the future, Nugrean will include information like the children’s and students’ interests and behaviour,” he concluded.
