Greg Pearson of FocusPoint International

New York – Trackimo, a provider of location-based IoT solutions and critical event management company, FocusPoint International, have announced that the companies will integrate their services to bring a range of smart devices that are linked to the Overwatch & Rescue plan and PULSE platform for optimal outdoor emergency management and response for travelers, drivers and their cargo throughout the USA and Canada.

Trackimo’s devices are small, cost-effective and designed to bring peace-of-mind through real-time location tracking from almost anywhere in the world along with an intuitive SOS emergency button while enabling the configuration of custom notifications. Users are able to set geofenced borders, speed limits, movement and low-battery notifications to allow themselves and designated contacts to be alerted of unusual activity. The devices have a built-in SIM with international roaming for independent connectivity and rely on GPS, GSM, Wi-Fi and BLE technology to provide the most accurate data and are paired with a web and mobile app to which users are able to log-in from anywhere with an internet connection for viewing their devices and editing their settings.

“Partnering with FocusPoint’s exceptional services is a natural step in ensuring the fastest, and most efficient response during critical moments,” says Shai Bar-Lavi, CEO of Trackimo. “We are proud and excited to offer our end-users another vital layer of security to help protect the people and things that matter most to them”.

FocusPoint offers the Overwatch & Rescue plan that integrates seamlessly with Trackimo devices to provide users with emergency services including direct escalation to search & rescue with a live tracking link to expedite response, no-cost medical evacuation to the nearest appropriate facility (including hazardous sports incidents), mandatory quarantine expense and COVID medical evacuation benefits and no-cost vehicle recovery in case of evacuation.

Furthermore, FocusPoint’s PULSE Monitoring & Emergency Escalation Platform is capable of receiving alerts from Trackimo devices that allows those monitoring the platform to notify, validate and send law enforcement authorities incident details & live tracking technology to assist with the emergency response efforts.

“FocusPoint welcomes the alliance with Trackimo and looks forward to partnering with the company to enhance the benefits of end consumers through the addition of our Global Overwatch & Rescue Plan”, says Greg Pearson, CEO of FocusPoint International. “Trackimo is an innovative company with phenomenal products, and we look forward to making their tracking devices available to our customers globally”, adds Pearson.
