TrackMe NZ partners with FocusPoint International to provide customers enhanced protection with the Overwatch & Rescue Plan
February 16, 2023
TrackMe NZ is pleased to announce that the Overwatch & Rescue Plan by FocusPoint International (FocusPoint) is now available to all TrackMe NZ customers who’ve purchased and connected specific devices directly to TrackMe NZ. (Available for GARMIN inReach, SPOT Messengers and ZOLEO devices.) This allows TrackMe NZ customers to access search and rescue (SAR) and assistance for multiple scenarios, anywhere in the world.
TrackMe NZ, a provider of personal safety devices for lone workers and people on the move, has partnered with FocusPoint, an industry-leading critical event management company, to enhance protections offered to TrackMe customers through the Overwatch & Rescue (O&R) plan. O&R is a fully funded, fully indemnified service guarantee that provides people on the move with 24/7 multi-lingual and on-demand assistance for medical mishaps and non-medical emergencies during a period of emergency and/or period of travel. Once purchased, TrackMe customers with an O&R plan will have the ability to seek assistance by activating the emergency SOS function on their personal safety device. Key benefits of the O&R plan include SAR, point of incident medical evacuations, response to hazardous sports, response to natural disasters, riots, strikes and civil commotion, and so much more. O&R will be available to TrackMe customers when traveling outside of Australia and/or New Zealand.
“Our partnership with FocusPoint International and the Overwatch & Rescue plan allows our customers to travel abroad anywhere in the world with the peace of mind knowing that help is truly only a push of a button away,” said Tony Glentworth, CEO and Chief Thinking Guy at TrackMe NZ. “It will be great for those travellers who have often struggled to get travel insurance that would cover their adventurous activities.”
“TrackMe NZ is your one-stop shop for best-in-market personal safety devices from leading brands, and we’re happy to have an opportunity to enhance the protections offered to TrackMe customers”, said Todd Moore, VP of Partner Integrations at FocusPoint International. “We’re excited to expand our reach in partnership with TrackMe NZ to offer the Overwatch & Rescue plan to customers traveling outside of Australia and New Zealand.”
Garmin and Zoleo customers in Australia and New Zealand that want to add the lifesaving benefits of the Overwatch & Rescue plan can do so by visiting the TrackMe website.
