BiiSafe Buddy helps consumers and businesses protect what matters most
ESPOO, Finland– March 23, 2015, BiiSafe, the leading wearable personal safety device company, is announcing the first partners to bring its flagship product – the BiiSafe Buddy - to the US market. Amidst strong interest from prospective distributors, BiiSafe has chosen to partner with Samsung and Array Acquisitions.
BiiSafe Buddy takes advantage of two predominant market trends – rapidly ageing population and growing adoption of connected devices. It is the only solution in the market to combine lost item tracking, location sharing and distress signal functionalities. A simple press of a button shares a user’s location with their trusted circle, sends a help request or a pre-defined message. Paired with the free app for iOS and Android, BiiSafe Buddy is also a convenient way to instantly find lost things.
Samsung Galaxy Extras is a US-facing online store selling premium accessories for the Samsung Galaxy smartphone lineup. Featured alongside products from such trending companies as Square, Mio and Parrot, BiiSafe is expecting to see strong publicity and sales growth.
An active investor in Seattle area technology start-ups, Array Acquisitions is involved in strategic partnerships that seek to bring the Buddy to enterprise solutions for business. "The engineering and design of the BiiSafe Buddy is preeminent in the wearable market,” said Ron Smith, Managing Director of Array Acquisitions, “businesses and institutions like UW Medicine are very excited about prospect of utilizing the Buddy for their doctor and nursing staff."
Featuring understated Scandinavian design and premium materials, BiiSafe Buddy won a prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2014. In addition to its miniature size and elegant looks, Buddy stands out from the competition by being durable and water-resistant.
BiiSafe Buddy is available for purchase from BiiSafe and their international distributors. More information can be found on www.biisafe.com.
