Yepzon launches in India; promises smart safety solutions
NEW DELHI: Safety technology company Yepzon Oy has announced its official entry in India to offer mobile services with compatible positioning technology.
Launched at an event in New Delhi, Yepzon's cloud service, together with the devices and a smartphone, tracks a person in seconds.
With just a push of a button, the safety alarm informs of its wearer's accurate location through the mobile app. Yepzon™Freedom is the first independent locator and alarm device combining Wi-Fi indoor positioning with 3G and GPS technologies.
Yepzon works on all key smartphone platforms, no personal information will be asked and no user credentials required. The device takes hardly a minute to pair with the phone and the battery can run up to several weeks with one charge.
It offers wearable technologies and smart clothing applications to locate people, pets, and things. The company was incorporated in 2012 and is based in Tampere, Finland with a subsidiary in London, United Kingdom; a joint enterprise in Nevada, US and now a joint venture Yepzon India. Yepzon devices are also manufactured in India.
"In 2013, we reviewed statistics on missing persons and immediately started product development. In the EU and US alone, more than a million children go missing each year. More than 100,000 of them will never be found. With modern technology, this need not be," said founder and chairman Yepzon, Otto Linna.
"Yepzon's safety and tracking products respond to the global feeling of insecurity especially among women, children, and elderly. They are scalable to anywhere in the world and are best gifts for loved ones," said CEO of Yepzon Enterprises India, Ashish Deswal.
"I am very much delighted that institutes like Manav Rachna and GLA University have chosen our high quality technology to strengthen the safety of their students. I foresee great prospects for Yepzon in the Indian market, the innovative safety solutions by Yepzon make it the promising industry leader," added Ashish.
Yepzon is already well established in the European and US markets having a satisfied and rapidly growing community of customers in place who trust its products. Yepzon has a proven track record across three different product lines, Yepzon™ONE, Yepzon™Freedom, and Yepzon™Industrial. With immaculate perfection, these products work on three different location technologies, and high quality is ensured in functionality and in design.
