Sysgration and Whistle Celebrate Shipment of 10,000 GPS Pet Tracking Devices

 
TAIPEI – June 4, 2015

Sysgration Ltd. (TSE5309), leaders in automotive electronic products, peripherals and power solutions, today announced the successful shipment of 10,000 units of the newest and most comprehensive pet tracking device, Tagg GPS Plus by Whistle, the world leader in smart pet products. The recent shipment marks the first major product milestone since Whistle acquired Snaptracs, Inc. earlier this year.
 
In developing Tagg GPS Plus, an activity and location tracker for pets, Snaptracs leveraged Sysgration’s wireless and mechanical expertise to deliver a robust and innovative device. As a result, Tagg GPS Plus offers one of the longest-lasting wearable batteries on the market and has an IP rating of 67 for ultimate durability and waterproofing. In addition to activity and GPS tracking, the device is able to detect ambient temperatures and alert owners if a pet is exposed to extreme heat or cold. Since acquiring Snaptracs in January 2015, Whistle has partnered with Sysgration to manufacture and evolve Tagg GPS Plus into the most comprehensive pet device available today.
 
“Whistle empowers pet owners to ensure the health, safety and overall wellbeing of their beloved animals,” said Ben Jacobs, CEO and Co-Founder of Whistle “There are approximately 180 million pets in the U.S., and about 10 million pets are lost each year. Through wide adoption of Whistle’s products, the brand seeks to significantly reduce that number and provide owners peace of mind that their pet is getting the best possible care.”
 
In the coming months, Whistle is planning to apply more streamlined mechanical design to the pet tracker as it integrates Tagg GPS Plus into its existing brand. The future product roadmap also includes plans to expand pet activity monitoring and tracking devices internationally to ensure more people can keep their pets happy, healthy and safe.
 
“Sysgration is proud to be Whistle’s partner in developing, building, and shipping more than 10,000 units of pet tracking device”, said Mark Lee, Chairman of Sysgration Ltd. “We are looking forward to continued success and collaboration in such unique market to help more pet owners to look after their best friends.”
