FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
“ATILUS COFOUNDER AND TECHNOLOGY CHIEF
JOINED SAFE AMERICA FOUNDATION D.C. SUMMIT”
BONITA SPRINGS, FL – Atilus Partner Harry Casimir was asked to partner with the Safe America Foundation for an international safety summit in Washington D.C. in late June. Safe America Foundation is a global emergency preparedness initiative headquartered in Marietta, Georgia.
Casimir, whose expertise is in the technology and telecommunications sector, launched Rele Anmwe in 2010, immediately following the devastating earthquake. Rele Anmwe is an interactive telephone service that provides urgent information for those injured or displaced by the natural disaster.
“It was a privilege to be called to our nation’s capital to speak on the topic of international safety,” stated Casimir. “Having founded Rele Anmwe as an 411 Information telephone service for earthquake survivors, I witnessed how crucially important technology in the Caribbean can be to the restoration process.”
Casimir wasted no time. A few months after he started the nonprofit, he began growing a sister company Dixi Vox as a Value Added Service (VAS) for Haitian telecommunication companies. The technology he created allows customers to call in to use a Dixi Vox interactive service, such as a business directory.
“Internet access in Haiti is sparse and can be unreliable,” Casimir described. “Therefore, it was extremely important to for us to develop access to important information for citizens via their mobile phone through Rele Anmwe and Dixi Vox. Our users call, speak a question into their phone, and our system ‘tells’ them the response.
“It’s important that we understand where Haiti is as a nation. I would love for the country to have greater internet access, but the people are still rebuilding the country. We can’t let that get in the way of serving them with highly specialized emergency management telecommunication technologies. I am proud of Dixi Vox’s contribution to global safety infrastructure development.”
Atilus, which began almost a decade ago with FGCU graduates Harry Casimir and Zach Katkin, have found their niche in the online world. Their firm is committed helping others succeed with the Internet and Technology.
Zach Katkin, Atilus CEO and CoFounder, and is beaming with happiness.
“I can’t really describe how proud we are of Harry. What he has accomplished is improving the business climate in one of the poorest countries in the world. We’re all very proud of this honor.”
