The Finnish technology company Yepzon has made an important collaboration agreement with the British virtual operator HoIP Telecom. Through this collaboration, Yepzon locators will be widely launched on the health, well-being, care and nursing sectors in the UK.
Easy to use and boasting a long-lasting battery, the Yepzon One GPS-locator has been well-received by the nursing industry. Specifically designed for locating persons, the device has proved its effectiveness in protecting dementia patients and patients with autism spectrum disorders, among others.
Yepzon’s first export market in the nursing sector is the UK, where it will be launched under the name TAG WAY powered by Yepzon. The first introduction will be done on 2015 International Technology Enabled Care Conference 16th-17th November.
“Through our cooperation with HoIP Telecom, we have been granted access to a vast network of contacts in the health care sector, which would be extremely slow to reach on our own. This is a huge new field for Yepzon,” commends Olli Mustonen, Business Expansion Manager, Partner, Yepzon.
HoIP Telecom provides the health care industry with high-quality, affordable telecommunications services that are easy to use. Established in 2009, HoIP Telecom is UK’s first MVNO operator focusing on the health, well-being and nursing industry in its market.
“Being extremely easy to use, Yepzon is an excellent addition to the range of services we offer. We have great faith in the product. We believe that through our wide network of partners, we shall sell tens of thousands of locators in the next few years,” says Mika Heiniö, CCO of HoIP Telecom.
The first product of Yepzon Oy, Yepzon One, was launched in December 2014. The GPS locator is sold within the EU and in the US. Yepzon Oy is currently seeking finance to the tune of a million euros to finance international growth and produce a second-generation device. The stock issue ends on 20 November 2015.
