MIAMI & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 25, 2016–

RedZone Maps and Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) today announced completion of the beta testing of their advanced hi-tech social listening application. Aiming to disrupt the current crime-reporting industry, RedZone Maps’ new proprietary technology has already amassed data on more than 500,000 crimes committed in the U.S. over the past 60 days – shootings, assaults and thefts – across all state borders and affecting over 1,250 cities. Using the same proprietary technology worldwide, we are planning to make big data of the same magnitude available to consumers globally. Currently, the app is available free in the Apple App store and expected to be accessible to Android users shortly.

“In today’s world, having information on real-time crimes that have been committed within the last 24 hours, with the prospect of live reporting via social listening at your fingertips, is an unprecedented advantage to all consumers,” said Ted Farnsworth, RedZone’s founder. “Our mission is to enhance personal safety worldwide, making users aware of their surroundings whether in their neighborhoods or traveling around the world.”

“We knew when we met with RedZone initially that our technology and the RedZone concept would be a game-changer in the technology world. We are thrilled with the successful results of the testing and the potential of the project as the technology expands,” added Pat Krishnan, CEO of Helios and Matheson Analytics.

The proprietary mapping and navigation system offering a safe route and risky route, combined with the social interaction and real-time crime of the RedZone platform, is an obvious benefit. We believe, with safety becoming an ever increasing daily concern around the world, we believe the leading online travel and lodging apps and sites will benefit along with consumers from this cutting-edge technology that has not been available before.
