WhereSafe, a family safety and asset protection service for consumers, has announced its formal consumer launch. The service is being positioned to RV dealers as a potential business office sell to buyers of new or used RVs and trailers, with the added benefit of lot theft security.
“We’ve taken a proven fleet tracking system and stripped out the complex reporting capabilities and matched it with a consumer-friendly app interface that anyone can use,” said Vince Poloniato, president at WhereSafe. “This hardware can be installed on any RV, is portable, so it can be moved around the lot and then sold to an end customer.”
WhereSafe consists of GPS tracking hardware and a smart phone app, which once downloaded, is ready to use. Hardware options are portable (magnetic) or plug-and-play (OBD2 port) and are ultra-durable for weather and extreme use, according to the company.
“WhereSafe is the culmination of 16 years in market research and experience, in the commercial space” said Poloniato. “Our goal is to provide families with the ability to ‘protect your passions’ using GPS technology. We know that today, consumers are more comfortable with GPS, they understand it better and see the potential to help safeguard what is important to them.”
Consumers can use WhereSafe to track RVs, vehicles, young or elderly drivers, trailers, equipment, power sports toys and more. Dealers have the opportunity to sell multiples for customers to install into other assets.
WhereSafe runs on GPS technology that leverages real-time tracking. WhereSafe’s app will notify the user or dealer if something happens that they need to know. Among the many types of notifications available, some examples include if a speed limit is exceeded, a car leaves home or the dealership at night, or if a loved one has left a predefined area.
“We want users to put their phones down and not waste any more precious time watching a screen,” said Poloniato. “Our tool provides the simplicity of use and the freedom to allow the system to work in the background only notifying you when a predetermined event actually happens.”
The services can be purchased in one-year bundles, no contract plans or by rental. The app can be downloaded for either Apple or Android.
