Awards and Recognition
On September 9th, the "Phase Free Award 2023" was announced to recognize efforts towards the realization of "Phase Free". The "YORiSOS" app, through which users could not only contact SECOM in case of emergency but also manage their daily health from their Apple Watch, was honored the Audience Award.
"Phase Free" is a concept about liberating household items and services from the phases (social conditions) of "always (in everyday life)" and "what if (in emergency situations)", regardless of the circumstances. The goal of the “Phase Free” approach is to enhance our quality of life by offering services that protect our wellbeing and lives.
SECOM embraces the "Phase Free" concept and remains committed to generating new value that enhances the "always" and "what if" situations.
