Singtel launches first location tracker service for consumers
Locator lets mobile users know whereabouts of loved ones in Singapore
Singapore, 26 November 2008 – Singapore Telecommunications Limited (Singtel) announced that it is the first operator in Singapore to offer a location tracker service to consumers. The new service called Locator provides users with peace of mind when, for example, they are away from their elderly family members or young charges.
Customers have on-the-go information on the whereabouts of their loved ones in Singapore by dialling *FIND (*3463) on their WAP-enabled mobile phones. They will see on their mobile phone a map that shows the vicinity# of their loved ones.
Customers can locate up to three Singtel postpaid mobile phone numbers. When they add mobile numbers to their Locator list, a notification will be sent to the owners of these mobile numbers seeking their consent to be located. Customers can choose not to participate or withdraw their consent anytime by dialing *FIND.
Mr Wong said: “With our customers’ ever changing needs, we always anticipate and aim to exceed their expectations with simple yet innovative services.”
