At ZagTag, our mission is to not only provide affordable, quality made GPS tracking devices, but piece of mind to parents and pet owners and to provide sanity to those who can’t seem to keep track of their important valuables. We pride ourselves on being different, and our proprietary point-to-point (p2p) technology has made that possible. Here’s how…
We Use Free Wireless Spectrum: We developed a patent pending data link to facilitate communication between our smart GPS tracker and mobile devices like smartphones. GPS location data is transmitted directly from the tracker to the mobile device via our data link, so does not require wifi or cellular coverage.
Affordable, Accessible Pricing : When you shop around for other GPS tracking devices, you will see the device itself costs upwards of $120! It doesn’t stop there. Often there is an activation fee, around $30, then on top of that a monthly fee of at least $10, and you are required to sign a long term contract. We don’t require long term contracts.
We are currently finalizing the price point for the zagtags and are considering a sales price of $60 with a monthly subscription of $10 per user regardless of how many zagtags you have. We would also reward people who refer customers to us at $3 per customer per month. So if you refer 3 customers and they sign up, your monthly subscription is basically covered. These rewards will be paid to you every month while your referrals are signed up. There will be no limit to the number of referrals, so you will get paid $3 every month for every referral who signed up!
On the other hand, we are considering a once-off price of $99 for the zag tag with no monthly fees.
Our main goal is to keep our devices affordable and accessible! And because your feedback is valuable to us as we bring zagtag to market, we welcome your feedback on our proposed pricing structures.
Smaller is Better: Other devices advertise that their product is smaller than a typical cell phone. We think that is still too large and prohibits use! Our device is only a couple inches long and ½ an inch wide and allows you to effectively use the device for many different applications. It can be worn comfortably by a small child or pet, or even hidden in a purse or wallet to track your valuable belongings.
Longer Battery Life: With other tracking devices, you will only have a battery life of a couple of days on average. Our communications technology allows our devices to have a battery life up to 3 months!
Weather Resistant vs. Waterproof: Obviously there is a big difference here. Theirs = weather resistant. Ours = waterproof. Need we say more?!
Higher Energy Efficiency: Because our devices are more energy efficient, the smart GPS tag can transmit location data more frequently (every 30 seconds) compared to the average 5 minutes for GPS tags that use cellular networks.
We are proud to bring to market a product that sets itself aside from traditional GPS devices and we hope you’ll join us in our mission to keep kids and pets safe. We welcome your feedback and invite you to join us in our crowdfunding campaign which will launch in January 2015. Please contact us for more information!
