Tech Data Mobile brings Trackimo GPS personal tracking devices to UK market
Ideal for keeping track of people, vehicles, pets, luggage – compact units provide retailers and resellers with an opportunity to extend wearables and personal IT device sales
Basingstoke 29 September 2015 – Tech Data Mobile has announced the immediate UK availability of the innovative Trackimo personal GPS tracking device, presenting retailers, webstores and resellers with an opportunity to extend the range of personal and wearable devices they offer and attract a whole new set of potential customers.
The compact Universal Trackimo device is small enough to fit into the palm of a hand and uses a combination of GPS and mobile technology to provide accurate location tracking across the globe. It comes with a SIM card that provides global coverage, so there is no need for customers to sign-up to a contract and no additional costs for data roaming. It can be managed through a smartphone app or on the web. Users can receive alerts via text, email and app notifications.
David Brassington, Vendor Director at Tech Data Mobile, says that the Trackimo device has the potential to open up a whole new area of business for retailers and resellers. “This is a unique and very smart piece of technology. Just about every individual and business will be able to make use of this compact, discrete and affordable device, so the potential is absolutely huge.”
With an SRP of only £74.99 (with one year of global service included), the Universal Trackimo is within the price range of any business or personal user that wants to keep an independent track of an important package, vehicle, pet or a colleague or family member, such as children or elderly relatives who are travelling alone.
They also provide a good opportunity to draw attention to the concept of personal and wearable technology, says Brassington. “The Trackimo concept is very easy to understand and forms part of the whole wearables revolution that is now starting to gather pace. This device presents retailers and resellers with an opportunity to show their customers just how useful, dynamic and practical personal and wearable technology can be.”
Tech Data is building up its portfolio of wearable solutions and the company’s specialist Consumer Electronics and Tech Data Mobile teams will be working together to raise awareness and drive opportunities. “We have a broad reach into the market and extensive distribution capabilities across Tech Data, so we’re perfectly placed to assist both vendors and customers to make the most of the massive potential in wearable technology”, says Brassington.
The Universal Trackimo is available to order from Tech Data immediately. The device comes with a micro USB charger and is water resistant. The battery will last for up to three days and an SOS button enables the device carrier to call for help at any time.
