AMBER Ready Turns to DeviceAnywhere to Verify That Mobile Devices Will Transmit Child Data Properly for Parents Using the AMBER II Program

DeviceAnywhere™, (, the industry-leader in end-to-end solutions for mobile application testing, automation and monitoring, has been selected by AMBER Ready to test its AMBER Ready II program for mobile phones. The AMBER Ready II program, tested on the DeviceAnywhere service, allows parents to download the AMBER Ready Program and create a profile of their child, along with a photograph and have it readily accessible so that in the event their child should go missing, the profile can be wirelessly transmitted to law enforcement officials instantly.

When a child is missing, time is of the essence. Providing the child’s information to law enforcement is critical to effectively get an alert to other law enforcement units and possibly issue an AMBER Alert. Nothing is more important then ensuring that the proper authorities are alerted immediately. AMBER Alerts were created to promote awareness that a child has gone missing. Alerts are distributed to various outlets such as email, radio and television stations, as well as on major roadways via traffic-condition signs. The AMBER Ready II program adds to the efficiency of the system, by allowing a child’s AMBER Ready profile – which includes photographs, and descriptive data – to be transmitted to authorities and included when AMBER Alerts are released.

DeviceAnywhere’s platform for mobile application testing, automation and monitoring allows mobile application developers to ensure that their content is reliable and functions properly by providing remote access to real mobile devices. Simulators and emulators often can not accurately predict real-world scenarios, and when proper operation is essential, only live devices can be relied upon.

“DeviceAnywhere is a valuable tool for AMBER Ready as it allows us to test our application on multiple carrier handsets. It enables AMBER Ready to streamline our internal certification testing program and ensure that our program will work for all devices, for families all across America,” Kai Patterson, CEO, AMBER Ready.

“In an emergency response scenario, there is no room for errors and time is a critical factor,” said Faraz Syed, CEO and Co-Founder, DeviceAnywhere. “AMBER Ready did not gamble with those factors when they selected DeviceAnywhere. We are pleased to support their efforts to build a vital mobile service that is reliable and can help establish safer communities nationwide.”
