My Stuff Lost and Found (http://www.mystufflostandfound.com) introduces the perfect gift for this Holiday Season, Okoban® Tracker tags and/or luggage tags, for protecting valuables. Innovative and sturdy, the Okoban tags provide convenient online access to Okoban’s free global lost and found service for life (no annual renewal fees) to place and register valuables in a secure, private tracking system to protect and recover lost valuables anywhere in the world.
Now, everyone can protect their laptops, phones, tablets, electronics, keys, jewelry, pets and even lost luggage, passports, cameras and other valuables. My Stuff Lost and Found has partnered with Okoban® and Travel Sentry® for the online sales of Okoban tracker tags and luggage tags to provide “free for life” global lost and found service for personal and business valuables.
“The tags fit right into a holiday card,” says Gordon Burns, CEO of My Stuff Lost and Found. “Everyone can use them and, unlike some Holiday gift offerings, they are 'guaranteed to fit'. Online holiday orders can be mailed by My Stuff Lost and Found to the recipient with a free personalized gift card.”
“We’ve all lost valuable stuff, and we have also all found someone else’s lost valuable stuff that we wished to return but had no way to contact the owner,” says Burns. “The joy of returning something to its rightful owner is equally as gratifying as having a total stranger return a valuable, especially in this Holiday Season.”
Yes, the vast majority of people want to do the right thing. One often gets thwarted, though, because there is no identification on the found luggage, laptop, phone, tablet, electronics, glasses, car keys, bike helmet, golf clubs or other valuable, making it impossible for the finder to connect to the owner. “Now there is a solution – Okoban, where your lost valuable finds you,” says Burns.
Purchasers affix a luggage tracker tag on the valuable and register the item on a secure personal account at http://www.okoban.com. The finder of the lost valuable enters the Unique Identification (UID) on the website. The system immediately notifies the owner with a secure email and text message of the found valuable and its recovery location through a worldwide network serving 400+ airline companies in more than 2,000+ airports and travel industry “frequent finders” including TSA, rail, maritime, coach, rental car and hotel companies.
Often, the lost valuable finds the owner before the owner realizes the item is lost.
Okoban has been developed by Travel Sentry to help the global airline community return the great number of laptops and valuables left at security checkpoints. More than 12,000 laptops are left at airport security checkpoints every week in the US alone. That’s nearly 2,000 per day. Unfortunately, less than one-third of these are returned because finding the owner is just too difficult. The remaining unclaimed laptops are sold as salvage.
“The peace of mind afforded by this product is invaluable. For such a small investment, you can greatly increase your odds of having your lost item returned quickly,” says Allen Davidson, partner with Okoban and Travel Sentry. “The finder service is free for life, anywhere in the world.”
While any individual has access to the system for reporting found items, much of the time “frequent finders” such as TSA, airports, airlines, rail, maritime, coach, rental car and hotel companies are making these reports. Travel Sentry works with major "frequent finder” institutions through special accounts and access to Okoban via the WorldTracer system, which is used by virtually all airlines.
Okoban is owned by Travel Sentry, the company that licenses the TSA accessible locks sold at tens of thousands of retail outlets, by over 400 luggage manufacturers worldwide and currently installed on 200 million luggage products everywhere. They are the only property registration system linked to the airline industry tracing system used by over 400 airline companies in over 2,000 airports worldwide. They are directly linked to the SITA/IATA World Tracer system. WorldTracer is the world’s leading automated service for tracing lost and mishandled baggage and property.
