Bailout1 is an app that helps bail bondsmen get offenders out of jail faster and more efficiently. The process for posting bond is outdated, tedious, and expensive. Bail bondsmen have to rely on the jails to pass out a long photocopied list of bond companies. Whoever answers the phone first gets the business. The bondsmen have no control over who calls and when, and the offenders are only allowed a certain number of phone calls a day. The jails suffer from overcrowding and an escalated hostile environment.
Bailout1 connects the bondsman directly to the offenders. Bondsmen get notified the second an offender posts bond by time, location and amount. The jailers get offenders out faster, making for a safer environment, and the offenders have the peace of mind of posting bond quickly and easily. The app also notifies the offender's listed primary contact so that they know their loved one has posted bond.
Below is the chosen brand mark with supporting materials. I also included another tagline we presented and two alternate logo choices.
