Emilio Guemez, a 2008 graduate of the MSIT eBusiness Technology program at Carnegie Mellon University has created an application for providing security to taxi users in Mexico. Given the current security situation in Mexico, his app has gotten a lot of attention even though the App is still “In Review” status and it is not available to the general public. He has been interviewed by national Radio Stations and has been interviewed by two national newspapers and the main business magazine in Mexico Expansion. He was also featured on the front page of the main Carnegie Mellon webpage.
His app is featured on the main page of the print version of one of the largest circulation national newspapers in Mexico, El universal”. There is also a video on their website where he is interviewed and got to demo the app.
This app is very relevant not only to Mexicans, but for foreigners that visit Mexico City.
