HELSINKI--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Yepzon One, the GPS locator of the Finnish GPS location service and locator provider Yepzon Enterprises, is expected to become the hit product of the international Christmas market.
“Yepzon is a technology leader known in the field for its quality products and elegant designs. Building a consumer product based on Yepzon technology provides us with an excellent opportunity for gaining significant growth in the US market as well as our export market”
“The market for Yepzon One type personal locators was created in November-December 2014 when Yepzon entered the market. From then on, the sale of products like this has been buoyant. The sales figures of this year clearly indicate that customers have discovered this product group and that personal locators are here to stay,” says Mr. Juha Orava, Product Manager of the Finnish electronics retailer Verkkokauppa.com.
According to Heidi Rantala, Chief Marketing Officer of Yepzon Enterprises, a distinct change has taken place in the locator market during the last year.
“There has been a clear increase in the demand for locators among consumers. The utilization of location information is the future and location technologies are an increasing part of our everyday life. The development of technology makes our everyday life safer than ever. What better way to think of your close ones at Christmas time than enhancing their safety?”
The expectations for the Christmas sales of locators are high.
“During the Christmas period, we expect the products to move rapidly as customer realise the potential of personal locators for securing their children, pets, boats, etc.,” says Orava.
Yepzon One is specifically designed to ensure the safety of children, the elderly, and pets. The device makes it easy to locate them quickly and accurately, even on the other side of the world. Yepzon One will soon be joined by Yepzon Freedom, which includes an alarm function. The device can already be preordered from the Yepzon online store.
