The RV Dealers Association of Canada has announced its latest endorsement partnership with KYCS Global (pronounced “kicks” and stands for “Keep Your Community Safe”). KYCS is a provider of ground breaking Bluetooth asset protection, recovery and community safety technologies through its comprehensive national network.
“Our mission is to protect Canadian RV dealers. We take the selection of our endorsement partners very seriously. They must bring real solutions to us that will provide Canadian RV & Trailer dealers and their end customers, real, viable and lasting benefits,” said Herb Cowen, chairman of the RVDA of Canada. “We encourage RVDA dealers to consider the benefits of leveraging the KYCS solution to mitigate theft liability, control inventory and become an active part of this growing Canadian community safety network.”
KYCS offers long range Bluetooth identification technology that aids in the recovery of stolen or missing high value assets, such as RVs and trailers. The company’s flagship solution includes Bluetooth devices (KYCS Pro & GLOBAL iFind) sold exclusively at dealerships. The KYCS Pro/GLOBAL iFind device is covertly hidden in RVs and trailers and paired with the free KYCS smartphone app. Participating dealers get a KYCS Zone installed at the dealership which helps to enhance the network.
Any Bluetooth enabled mobile phone with the downloaded KYCS app, instantly becomes part of the KYCS asset recovery and community safety network. The KYCS app creates a community of anonymous users powered by community partners and KYCS Bluetooth device owners.
Participating RVDA dealers and KYCS users can also take advantage of a direct link to report any crime directly to Crime Stoppers, which is integrated into the app. KYCS Global works very closely with Crime Stoppers in an evolving partnership.
“RV and trailer theft is a growing concern that costs dealers, insurers and RV/trailer owners large amounts of money and stress,” said Jason Lyall, VP of special markets at KYCS Global. “We have created various sales models with existing RVDA members, and this endorsement will help raise awareness about our program for dealers. Our hope is that through this relationship with the RVDA, we can work towards decreasing the incidence of RV & trailer theft, as well as help dealers better manage inventory.”
“The RVDA is excited about this new endorsement and we expect a very positive net benefit not only for RVDA dealers and RVers, but to the communities in which they enjoy this wonderful past time,” said Cowen.
