Grange Inventor Moves to Windermere

Further down Crescent Road at the junction with Main Road and opposite the
Morrisons ‘M Local’ convenience store, Alertacall have taken a new lease of first and second floor offices, above Temple Heelis Solicitors. The property is owned by a private investor client of Carigiet Cowen. James Batchelor set up Alertacall, aimed at vulnerable and elderly people, after a gust of wind blew his 86 year old grandmother off her feet in 2005.

Mr Batchelor, originally from Yorkshire, said over the next year, he expected the business to grow ten fold with the company having a few thousand customers at present. The business idea of Alertacall came after Mr Batchelor’s grandmother
Eveline Smith broke one of her arms in several places and family members became concerned for her well-being. The system works whereby the user presses a button at an agreed time every day to signal they are well. If the person fails to press the button, the system will attempt to contact the user on the phone. If that proves
unsuccessful, Alertacall will dial nominated friends or family to alert them to the fact that there may be a problem.
