Nov. 12, 2015

The Finnish technology company Yepzon today announced a collaboration agreement with the British virtual operator HoIP Telecom. Through this collaboration, the health, well-being, care and nursing sectors in the UK will make use of Yepzon locators.

Easy to use and boasting a long-lasting battery, the Yepzon One personal GPS locator has been well-received by the nursing industry, the company reports. Specifically designed for locating persons, the device has proved its effectiveness in protecting dementia patients and patients with autism spectrum disorders, among others.

The UK constitutes Yepzon’s first export market in the nursing sector, where it’s product will be launched under the name TAG WAY powered by Yepzon. The formal introduction will occur during the International Technology Enabled Care Conference 2015 in Newport, South Wales, November 16-17.

“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,” commented 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,” said Mika Heiniö, CCO of HoIP Telecom.

The first product of Yepzon Enterprises, Yepzon One, was launched in December 2014. The GPS locator is sold within the EU and in the U.S. Yepzon 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 November 20, 2015.
