PRESS RELEASE - Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 17, 2011
Mobius is the first mobile marketing solution that works with image recognition specifically designed for pets called mobiPET, a mobile phone-based service that works like an “Amber Alert” to reunite lost pets and owners. mobiPET collar tags will soon be available at popular pet stores, veterinary clinics and animal shelters. The collar tags are FREE, as is the lost pet alert notification service.
More than three in five Americans (62%) have a pet, according to a May 2011 Harris Poll. Source: Harris Poll. mobiPET is simple to activate and use. The pet owner simply takes a picture of the free mobiPET collar tag using any camera-enabled mobile phone and sends it to mobiPET(at)agm(dot)tw. mobiPET returns a message requesting a photo of the pet, then directs the pet owner to a mobile internet page where the pet owner enters their contact info, the pet’s name, medications the may be on, and likes or dislikes. The pet’s info is then automatically associated with the mobile phone number used to activate the mobiPET tag.
“Unlike RFID or other implant chips, mobiPET is non-invasive and requires no special equipment, such as RFID chip readers or scanners,” said Mobius CEO Aram Kovach. Most pet owners already have everything they need to get started with mobiPET. mobiPET, works across all mobile phone service carriers and requires only a mobile phone with a camera, with text messaging capability. mobiPET is specifically designed to be used with mobile phones and can even easily populate the pet owners registration form via a reverse lookup feature that uses the owners’ home phone number greatly reducing the number of keystrokes required on the mobile phone.
mobiPET brings the power of mobile social networking to a search for a lost pet. If a pet goes missing, the owner sends the text message "LOST" to mobiPET(at)agm(dot)tw using the same mobile phone number that activated the mobiPET tag. mobiPET immediately sends an alert message and photo of the pet to other mobiPET members within a ten mile radius of the owner’s present location, mobilizing a community of mobiPET owner-members who are then on the lookout for the lost pet. mobiPET also notifies local member veterinarians and animal shelters.
Anyone that finds a pet can notify the owner by taking a photo of the tag and sending it to MobiPET(at)agm(dot)tw, as indicated on the tag. The owner receives an immediate notification that someone has found the pet, along with that person’s contact info. This process works even if the sender is not a mobiPET member, or has not been notified that the pet is missing.
