1 March, 2018 Auckland New Zealand / Sydney Australia New Zealand technology developer Jupl has partnered with Survivor Watch, Australia, to support victims of domestic violence. Jupl’s solution uses a Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch with a built-in discreet alarm, which allows a victim to seek help at the press of a button, alerting a nominated carer to their current situation.

Jupl co-founder and CEO Alan Brannigan says, “Domestic violence is a major problem at all levels of society in both New Zealand and Australia. I am in awe of the work that Sy Laga’aia and Survivor Watch are doing and if Jupl’s technology can offer hope and empowerment to domestic violence victims – or maybe even save someone’s life – then I am inordinately proud that our team can be part of this solution.”

Survivor Watch was Co-Founded by Sy Laga’aia, who is passionate about empowering people to help the deal with situations in which they might otherwise feel helpless. The Survivor Watch series are marketed in Australia to lone workers, the elderly, high-risk environment workers, travellers and individuals that are impacted by domestic violence and bullying.

Laga’aia, a former bodyguard, says he has a natural tendency to protect.

“It’s in my genetic make-up – it’s just how I’m wired. To finally have a tool like this to help support those who suffer from domestic violence is an absolute break-through. Domestic violence statistics are growing rapidly and impact every facet of society, so to be working with Jupl on this project is fantastic – it’s an exciting and very worthwhile opportunity,” says Laga’aia.

The Survivor Watch campaign is unique in that it allows sufferers to be nominated (by a concerned loved one) to receive a watch. In addition, public donations can made on the website to help fund those in need of watch, but who are not in a financial position to afford one. (More information on the campaign is available at www.survivorwatch.com.au

Australian Olympic swimming legend Dawn Fraser has volunteered to be an ambassador for the Survivor Watch campaign. Fraser, who in the past was a victim of domestic violence herself, says she knows how devastating and frightening violence in the home is.

Jupl General Manger in Australia, Gui Feijo added, “The team at Survivor Watch is tackling a very important issue head on. Jupl wants to make a difference in our society and partnering with Sy and his team was a natural fit. We look forward to helping victims of Domestic Violence with this amazing tool.”

Sir Ray Avery, Jupl co-founder and healthcare inventor, says that the Jupl technology is ground-breaking and will impact positively on millions of peoples’ lives.

“The incredible partnership between Jupl, Spark, Samsung and Cisco-Jasper represents unparalleled innovative thinking and provides all our customers with a personal safety net

whether in healthcare or other critical areas such as domestic violence,” with Jupl you are never alone, help is just a fingertip away.” says Avery.

Jupl Scores Aussie Supply Agreement With Frontier Networks


Jupl  technology delivers proactive healthcare care, not just emergency calling

Auckland, New Zealand / Sydney, Australia, 08 February 2018 –  Jupl New Zealand’s innovative developer of mobile healthcare applications, has signed its first Australian partnership supply agreement with one of Australia’s largest connected health solutions providers, Frontier Networks.

Frontier Networks is the exclusive supplier of connected health solutions to several of the largest retirement living and aged care providers in Australia and undertook a global selection process to determine the best healthcare technology partner.

Paul Mula, Frontier Networks Co-founder and COO, says, “We carried out an extensive tender process, involving an international search and review of mobile healthcare solution providers. We were looking for the best technology partner to work with us to deliver advanced healthcare solutions. At the end of that process, we concluded that Jupl was the one for us.”

Alongside their home based personal emergency solutions, Jupl’s mobile application integrates with a Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch and Cisco Jasper’s cloud service, to deliver wearable, always-on remote healthcare services. The Jupl application provides around-the-clock support for the wearer (and their carers) through GPS and activity monitoring, as well as allowing critical alerts and reminders to be received. The application also incorporates a mobile phone app for carers to receive updates on the wearer, should the wearer become distressed.

Alan Brannigan, Co - founder and CEO of Jupl, says the solution evolved as a result of thousands of hours of collaboration between Samsung, Cisco Jasper, Spark and Jupl.

“The solution was made possible, in large part, by the roaming capability of the Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch, in conjunction with the embedded SIM solution provided by Spark, and managed using the Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity platform provided by Cisco Jasper,” says Brannigan.

Sir Ray Avery, Jupl Co-founder and healthcare inventor, says, “This technology is a world first and will transform how we look at personal health and safety – it’s a great example of the kind of healthcare innovation required to improve healthcare outcomes for the world’s  ageing population.”

The Gear S3 is the first smartwatch with an embedded SIM, meaning it is essentially a mobile phone and doesn’t require any other device or phone for transmitting information.

The contract between Jupl and Frontier Networks was finalised at the inaugural Samsung Healthcare Summit held in Sydney late last year. The event showcased how technology is being utilised alongside the Samsung suite of products to enhance healthcare today and what can be expected in the future.

Gui Feijo, Jupl’s General Manager in Australia, says Jupl has been running multiple product trials and case studies throughout Australia in the past year, gaining experience and traction in the Aged Care and Lone Worker environments. According to Feijo, the partnership with Frontier Networks is the first of several expected to come to fruition in the next few months.

“This is a fantastic win for the Jupl team and a great way to lead into the new year.  We are very excited to be working with the Frontier team,” says Feijo.
