Absolute Persistence technology works to recover lost or stolen mobile devices. Once activated and the phone is lost or stolen, the Absolute LoJack team goes into action and recovers the device and to date, has recovered thousands from all over the world.
Warranty Life recently began working with a partner company that provides software services to a government agency. The Absolute Persistence technology is being applied to Samsung Note 3 devices (for a full list of devices, see Absolute.com ) used by staff in the course of their job, and recently one was reported stolen from the agency itself!
As the theft report was about to be filed and the LoJack Recovery team about to spring into action, it was announced in the department that Lo Jack was about to be activated and the device tracked down. Within the hour, it was recovered.
As told to us by our partner, the story comes to a happy conclusion:
“A minor miracle occurred. They announced to their staff that a LoJack device will be activated to locate the stolen device, and about an hour later the device was discovered inside the same vehicle that had been searched 3 times. So it appears that it was an inside job, but the thief got scared. That alone was worth the price of admission.
Disaster averted, this time.”
Although the Recovery team didn’t get to track the thief down, we’d say it still worked, we’re sure you would agree.
Warranty Life has taken the Absolute product and positioned it as an alternative to traditional loss and theft insurance. Recovering lost devices, preventing false or fraudulent claims while reducing compliance overhead makes for a compelling cost effective program, not to mention the security benefits to the mobile protection plan market.
