CHARLOTTETOWN BASED TECHNOLOGY COMPANY LAUNCHES BULLYTAG™ FREE MOBILE APP
Charlottetown, PE, Canada – November 13, 2012 – BullyTag Inc™ is celebrating the release of BullyTag™: a free mobile anti-bullying software application and reporting dashboard for students and educators. BullyTag technology empowers victims and bystanders to anonymously report bullying incidents through the use of an Apple iOS powered smart phone.
BullyTag offers an easy to use, free mobile app that allows students to report bullying in a quick and safe manner to school authorities. Bullying incident reporting can be accomplished via a picture, video, audio clip, or text message ‘tag’ submitted within the application. Bullying incidents which are tagged are immediately erased upon submission, so no data is kept on the user’s phone. BullyTag is also completely anonymous as the system does not capture the user’s phone identification or address. Students can rest assured that what they report remains truly anonymous and cannot be traced back to their phone. BullyTag’s reporting dashboard enables school authorities to review incident reports which provide valuable information for making informed decisions and guidance on action whenever a bullying incident occurs.
“The development of BullyTag has been a collaborative effort as discussions with educators, counselors, trustees and parents whose children have been bullied has led to the launch of this new technology,” stated Wayd McNally, founder and President of BullyTag Inc. “Bullying is one of the most common problems affecting children and teenagers today. According to www.bullyingstatistics.org as many as 70 percent of students report bullying as an ongoing problem. Government and educators alike can place themselves at the forefront of this issue and demonstrate to parents all over the world how Canadian made technology and innovation can be used to successfully mitigate the problem of bullying.”
BullyTag for iOS can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store here, or visit www.BullyTag.com to find the link to download the app.
