"The introduction of Tile Slim and our first-ever platform are significant steps toward achieving our mission to give everything the power of smart location," said Mike Farley, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Tile. "We want to get smart location into everyone's hands, no matter what products they use."
Tile Slim is purpose-built for wallets, purses, passports, laptops, tablets, and other thin products. Just like Tile Original, Tile Slim allows users to ring their Tile to locate a misplaced item, find their phone even when it is in silent mode, and view the last known location of their item on a map. If customers are unable to find an item at the last place it was seen, they can tap into Tile's community, the world's largest lost-and-found network, to help them find their lost or stolen item almost anywhere in the world. In addition, Tile Slim comes equipped with four ringtones to choose from, making Tile Slim the ultimate wallet tracker. The thin form factor is also perfect for sticking Tile Slim onto the surface of a laptop or tablet. Custom adhesive can be purchased from the Tile website to ensure Tile Slim stays where it belongs.
Tile's first-ever B2B offering provides businesses with a differentiated and compelling value proposition to their customers: making their products locatable through Tile's award-winning mobile app and proprietary network. The Tile Smart Location Platform enables product developers and manufacturers to embed Tile's smart location technology directly into their own products.
The platform offers access to Tile's entire technology stack, mobile app and network, which reaches over 200 countries and territories. The company's first partners include:
● EcoReco -- the first connected and findable electric scooter will integrate Tile's smart location technology into their new Model R EV scooters.
● Nomad -- an innovative smartphone and smartwatch accessories maker will launch PowerPack, a portable battery pack integrated with Tile's smart location technology, this fall.
● Zillion -- the ultimate smart wallet with built-in powerbank and cable adds smart location technology by Tile.
"The Tile community has powerful network effects. As more people use Tile, our service gets better and better, helping more people find more things faster," said Farley. "Opening our platform to allow other companies to embed Tile's smart location technology into their products will expand our network quickly, which creates value for all of our partners and consumers by finding items even faster."
Tile Slim retails for $30 each, or $100 for a 4-pack, and is available to order here.
