Managed Group Services:
Service Groups –
uCaring service groups already exist and are to be associated with the People you want informed if you should have an urgent need for Help, Rescue, or Medical Attention.
"My Groups" –
Every person you add to your network, everyone you know is associated with one or more groups. Create those groups by naming them and then associate people for easy communications: Home, Family, Friends, Neighbors, and Club Friends, Gym Buddies, Security,
Managed Groups are a new kind of service to support business and social causes with solutions that address safety and mission.
Informal Managed Groups –
Informally lead groups support the concepts of being owned or run by a “Manager" with communication and coordination responsibilities to “Members". These services are useful for keeping small informal groups informed and connected without the burden of each person needing to directly address each person for information and updates. A perfect low overhead structure for members wanting to know the when and where for any group, e.g., book club, team, or volunteer group. One person creates and owns the Manager role and invites members to join. The member only has to reply yes to automatically become a member. Each member then “Belongs" to a named Membership Group that has pre-defined communication links automatically created.
Informal groups easily connect and share information, meet needs, solve problems, locate people, and get and give help.
Managed Groups –
Managed Group Services are designed for managing and coordinating people and resources in support of business operations and volunteer organization goals such as advancing a cause that attracts people and resources that need to be managed.
Managed Group services can support larger memberships where each member can have one or more roles, e.g., recruiter, evangelists, supervisor, admin, sales, service, guide, coordinator, care giver, repair, maintenance, and so on.
Roles can have multiple authorizations, duties, reporting requirement, and access to services for performing actions that support the group needs for communications, coordination, goal achievement, safety, and reporting.
Managed Groups can be linked to provide National and Global organizational leadership and reporting systems.
Solutions are fully developed models of Managed Groups.
Each Solution can be used directly by adding people to roles and can be modified to meet particular needs.
Campus Safety Solution –
The Campus Safety Solution was designed for schools but can protect any campus, e.g., business, residential or commercial campus. The easy to use solution is optimized for early detection, verification and response to any unusual or unwanted behavior that may be a risk to people in the form of unauthorized vehicles, people, hazards, or accident scenes to be avoided.
The Retirement Community Campus Safety Solution

"Knowing" Benefits are Key:
Knowing that people are on time implies they are safe, and well. Not Knowing leads to worry. Automating the Knowing in both directions means you know that everyone is OK by exception, and they know you are OK by timely automated communications that reflect your status, that you are OK and on schedule, and that you are concerned about them.
Rules also protect people at risk at home, work, and lone workers in remote locations. Rules can be used to respond to a medical crisis, threats of violence or being harmed by or witnessing bullying or sexual attack or other aggression. And equally important, protect against every day risks like climbing in the tub or up on the roof while alone, can be addressed with rules, keeping the people you care about safe.
You or perhaps someone sitting in your meeting may be one of the 44 million people who are caregivers for someone at home who depends on them to thrive, or even to survive. Rules for Caring, Informing, and Engaging others can provide Knowing for both.
