When asked about plans for monetising this solution, Kumar replied, “our plan to monetise FarEye is pretty basic. We provide the solution to schools and charge them for the system along with a per SMS charge. It is, as of now, a finished product. But, we are ready to take feedback from the parents, schools and the industry to add features to it as and when required. The present system took us close to a year to complete. This is including the pilot and all the prototypes required to reach the final product. We have already completed the provisional patents and are in the process of filing a complete patent.
As of now, parents can heave a sigh of relief as their kids can now be safer and more in their sights than ever before.
