Groupcall has been heavily involved in the design and launch of the enhanced Child Rescue Alert (CRA) system for the UK. The system allows alerts to be issued via text, email, social media and digital billboards the minute a child is reported missing. It centralises all possible clues and leads from the public, increasing the chances of a safe return.

The CRA system has been developed by registered charity Missing People and the National Crime Agency’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) command. Parental communication specialist Groupcall has provided the technology behind the system, which runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
