REALsafe Technologies Limited in Durham has won the national Grand Prix prize in the GREAT Faces of British Business competition. The Business is GREAT Britain campaign launched the competition in November 2014, in association with BT Business, to find the most innovative and exciting UK businesses.
Durham-based REALsafe Technologies is a start-up business that launched a revolutionary safety-based app for motorcyclists in February 2013. The REALRIDER app lets motorcyclists track rides, record points of interest, and keeps them safe when they ride alone. It can automatically detect if a rider has had a crash and contacts the Emergency Service with their last known location and medical details.
