Gibi Technologies Launches Innovative GPS Location Service
Gibi Technologies Launches Innovative GPS Location Service To Monitor and Protect Household Pets
Quality, Reliability and Accuracy to Revolutionize Pet Location Service Industry
MENLO PARK, Calif., April 10, 2014 – After winning the coveted “Great Gadget” award in Walmart’s Get On The Shelf contest and a successful pre-order program through Walmart.com, Gibi Technologies is now poised to begin their nationwide product launch. Touting both superior hardware and software components, along with the industry’s most comprehensive mobile coverage area, Gibi is generating excitement among pet-owners and retailers alike.
Gibi Technologies – developed by Hawaiian native Synette Tom, a dog lover who spent most of her career designing and selling over a billion dollars of communication satellite systems – offers state-of-the-art technology to help pet-parents protect their beloved companions. The Gibi service consists of a sleek, waterproof device that attaches easily to most collars and incorporates proprietary methods for long battery life, along with user-friendly online applications accessible by smartphone, tablet and computer apps. Users can set up virtual safe zones, find their pet’s current location and share their pet’s location with friends and family. If a pet should stray from a safe zone, owners and their chosen contacts will immediately be notified via text, email and/or app notices.
There are currently 83.3 million pet dogs and 95.6 million pet dogs, with 68% of US households owning pets. According to the American Pet Products Association, 1 in 3 pets go missing in their lifetime and 4 million are euthanized every year because their loving owners could not be found. Many of these even had microchips, which require the appropriate scanner to be on hand, the microchip to be located and the owner’s contact information to be kept current. With Gibi, owners know when their pet goes missing and can proactively find their pet. Gibi’s mission is to keep owners connected with their pets, let owners know where their beloved pets are at all times and in all places, give owners peace of mind and strengthen the bond between pet and owner.
Gibi’s pet location service is currently available through Walmart.com for $99.99 (including 3 months of service) and at www.GibiTechnologies.com in the end of June. Additional monthly subscriptions are $9.99 per month which includes access to the Gibi system and their nationwide mobile network (an annual subscription is also available for $99.) To order now, please go to Walmart.com.
