Just 90 days since the launch of TigerTag (http://www.TigerTag.com), the world’s first free lost and found network, the service has grown to include members in 29 countries, making it a true global network of Good Samaritans.
Each TigerTag is a small, neatly designed sticker with a unique ID number that can be applied to any valuable item, such as cell phones, iPods, Blackberries or, as in the case of one member, the collar of each of his beagles. If a tagged item goes missing, the finder simply goes to TigerTag.com and enters the unique ID number. This triggers a simple but effective reuniting process. Each tag carries the saying “Do good. Return.” And people do. 75% of lost items which carry a TigerTag ID sticker are returned.
“In addition to countless other items, more than 10 million mobile phones and 2 million laptops are lost every year in the US alone, and though most of the finders would like to do the right thing and return them, until now it’s been very difficult to track down the owners,” said Eric Lagier, CEO and founder of TigerTag. “We make it easy for these folks to be Good Samaritans and return these lost items. And we now have Good Samaritans in 29 countries.”
TigerTag (http://www.tigertag.com) is the world's first free lost and found network that harnesses the power of goodwill. The service operates a 24/7-service center for easy and fast recovery of lost items – typically within 24hrs. TigerTag collaborates with international, federal and local law enforcement and offers integration with with national registries of stolen goods to ensure protection of tagged valuables and prevent the sale of stolen goods. The service was founded in 2009 and has offices in US, Europe and Latin America. TigerTag is privately held.
