SafeReporting App

SafeReporting was developed in partnership with a local Michigan pawn shop and police department to manage and track pawned items through pawn shops. The rate at which stolen goods were accepted by and sold by pawn shops was on the rise and there was previously no way to track where the goods originated. We developed this application to solve that problem.

Technology Solutions of Michigan, located in Kalamazoo, designed the mobile phone application for SafeReporting.

SafeReporting is an electronic reporting service that helps law enforcement catch criminals and reduces the annoyance of reporting. SafeReporting was designed by a local Michigan pawn shop and police department for administrative simplicity. With the app, pawnbrokers, secondhand dealers, and scrap and precious metal dealers are able to report their transactions to law enforcement in a simple, efficient way.

Tracking pawned and secondhand items is mandated by the state. SafeReporting allows the dealers to know who brought the item in, where it came from, and how much they were paid for it.

FEATURES:

  • Easily search local and long distance resellers through your mobile phone app, based on your current location.
  • Result list includes the item’s photo, description, price, seller, and the date of the transaction.
  • The watch list is updated in real time.
  • A four digit pin code protects the app if the phone becomes lost or stolen.
  • Directly call a store or customer by selecting the desired number.
  • Get directions from your current location to the store/customer immediately from google maps.
