Trackdotimage002Feb. 7, 2013Trakdot, the brand behind a luggage tracking device recently unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES), has set its sights on the US and Canada as key markets for its first phase of launch. Created by the LA-based firm, GlobaTrac, LLC, a pioneering innovator in low cost tracking solutions, Trakdot Luggage offers a solution to air travelers concerned about losing their bags. Trakdot Luggage was one of the most talked about products at CES receiving exposure on CNN, Fox News, Mashable, Engadget and the Huffington Post among others.

“A recent passenger survey from the International Air Transport Association showed that 81% of travelers are interested in tracking their bags in real time,” explains CEO Harry Steck.  “Trakdot Luggage empowers travelers to do just that, with a revolutionary product that is inexpensive as well as simple and convenient to use. The FAA forecasted the number of people travelling by air to increase by 4.6% in 2012, so whether traveling for business or pleasure, we think there is a huge North American market for Trakdot.” Though the airlines have an impressive 98% successful baggage arrival rate, there are still 26 million bags that go missing each year from airports around the world, according to the SITA. In an effort to join the airlines in reassuring passengers concerned about their valuables, Trakdot Luggage offers additional peace of mind with city-specific information on the whereabouts of checked baggage. The ultra-light, palm sized tracker fits comfortably in any bag and delivers the city location in real time to any mobile, Apple, Android, or SMS capable devices. The retail package includes the Trakdot Luggage device, luggage tag, and batteries.  It works globally with any mobile phone or SMS enabled device for a low annual price.  Each device can be linked to multiple phones, and each phone can track multiple devices. For added convenience, Trakdot Luggage owners can track or locate bags on the web at www.Trakdot.com using a secure log-in.

    Engaged Nation created a customized, digital golf game to support Massage Envy’s new service rollout.

Players will be given the opportunity to play the game multiple times per day and earn entries into a grand prize drawing. The promotion is scheduled to run for one month and features a grand finale drawing where one player will be awarded a year of free Total Body Stretch services.

    “We are excited about working with Engaged Nation to provide a new, interactive way for customers to learn about our exciting Total Body Stretch service,” said Jeanna Corley, Vice President, Marketing at Massage Envy. “The interactive program they have developed will help increase awareness about our new Streto Method, while helping customers directly engage with us on a platform that highlights our position as the Official Massage Sponsor of the PGA TOUR. We believe the program will not only entertain and engage customers but help to drive on-site visits and incremental revenue.”

    Combining over 15 years of massage expertise with the latest stretch research, Massage Envy’s Streto Method is a series of prescribed movements that deliver more than people can achieve by stretching on their own.
