Online PR News – 06-November-2013 – Houston, Texas – Houston Software Start-up Expands its Product Line with Personal Emergency Preparedness Software â€“ ICEarchiveâ„˘
Building on the expertise gained with the release of its MyLifeBridgeâ„˘ estate planning and organization tool, software developer, Neal Ventures LLC announced today the launch of its follow up product, ICEarchiveâ„˘. This product was specifically designed to give people a single repository for all critical personal and household information that is readily available, easy to use, convenient and secure â€” a true personal disaster recovery tool.
Disasters Costs Billions Annually
Insurance losses in the United States in 2012 exceeded $32.1 billion. Whether by fire, tornado, hurricane, flood or theft, homeowners are at risk of losing valuable information normally kept in file cabinets, computers or even backup hard drives. When asked how ICEarchiveâ„˘ can help the average person in times of emergency, Neal Ventures LLC president Owen Malbec explained;
â€śOur product allows a user to safely and conveniently aggregate all of those items that you need to rebuild your life in case of disaster. For example, the ability for a homeowner or renter to be able to fully collect on their insured property is greatly enhanced when they have photographic proof of their possessions. Our product arms the owner with irrefutable evidence, yet doesnâ€™t rely on complicated or risky web-based solutions. Add in the personal I.C.E data feature and youâ€™ve not only protected your possessions, youâ€™ve potentially saved your own life.â€ť
How ICEarchiveâ„˘ Helps
Many people have some â€śsystemâ€ť or form of organization to keep their personal affairs in order. But how robust is that system? Employers undoubtedly have disaster recovery plans in place, but do individuals? If they lost their home to fire or other disaster, do their plans go along with it? ICEarchiveâ„˘ offers users the ability to consolidate all of their key information into one safe location and keep it with them (or store it safely) so that the day after the disaster they can be up and running their lives again.
Additional Software Feature Added â€” In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.)
Should an owner become incapacitated in an accident and unable to respond to the emergency personnel, the ICEarchiveâ„˘ card is clearly labeled that it contains â€śI.C.E. dataâ€ť, or "In Case of Emergency" information, which first responders are trained to look for. Information such as blood type, medical conditions, allergies and physicianâ€™s contact information, is stored on this first screen. Accessible prior to the password protected area where the rest of the information is stored, this I.C.E. data includes vital information to help responders help the owner.
â€˘ Windows-based, self contained, portable application on USB media â€“ No additional software required to run and leaves no traces on userâ€™s computer
â€˘ Does not require the internet
â€˘ Allows users to safely record passwords, personal information, account details and other day-to-day information that must be protected
â€˘ Allows users to capture photographs for insurance purposes or other documents for safe keeping. All images and documents get integrated into the product and can be deleted or downloaded at will
â€˘ 8 GB of storage space, enough for thousands of picture or document uploads
â€˘ Encrypted data file cannot be opened without ICEarchiveâ„˘ program, allowing user to store backup copy anywhere without fear of data exposure
â€˘ Userâ€™s I.C.E. (in case of emergency) data is visible to all first responders as it is accessible prior to the password gateway that protects the userâ€™s personal information â€“ they cannot see personal and household information!
