The Uber of emergency services
Usalama is a mobile platform that links its users to emergency service providers while providing access to real time data on an online response center. The platform has three interlinked components: an end user mobile app linked to the online response center for emergency providers which is in turn linked to the agent app for their field agents on the ground. At a glance the platform has two main sides; the end user on one and the emergency service providers on the other. It works in four steps: Our focus as of now is on four types of emergencies: medical emergencies, security emergencies, roadside rescue and gender based violence. In each of these areas we seek emergency service providers that offer services in the respective sector. The business model is a subscription model where we charge the emergency providers monthly based on the number of clients linked to them on Usalama. This fee is only charged on the for-profit companies.
