Yepzon Oy, a safety technology company, developing global mobile location solutions, made its official entry in India through a launch event at the residence of Ms. Nina Vaskunlahti, Ambassador of Finland in India.
A brigade of Yepzon’s top executives, including Otto Linna, Founder and Chairman of the Board along with many eminent personalities and VVIPs were present at the grand launch party.
The safety technology developed by Yepzon combines a mobile service with compatible positioning technology brought together by Yepzon’s cloud service. Together with the devices and a smartphone, the person in need of help can be tracked in seconds, regardless of whether the person is indoors or outdoors or on the other side of the world. With just a push of a button, the safety alarm informs of its wearer’s accurate location through the mobile app.
“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”, Otto Linna, Founder & Chairman, Yepzon, shared.
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.
Yepzon Oy 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.
“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”, Ashish Deswal, CEO, Yepzon Enterprises India, said.
“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”, Deswal added.
Yepzon is present in the European and US markets with three different product lines, Yepzon™ ONE, Yepzon™ Freedom, and Yepzon™ Industrial. These products work on three different location technologies, and high quality is ensured in functionality and in design.
