After the successful French launch of its smartphone for seniors, KAPSYS is ready to begin European distribution of its smartphone for people with low or impaired vision.
SmartConnect by KAPSYS, an easy-to-use smartphone intended for seniors, will now be distributed throughout France via large retailers like BOULANGER.
Starting in March, SmartVision by KAPSYS, a voice-assisted smartphone designed for people with low and impaired vision, will be available through speciality networks.
Mougins-France, 20/02/2014 – On the occasion of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, KAPSYS, the specialist in wireless digital mobility and communications devices, announces both nationwide distribution of its smartphone for seniors in France and the upcoming sales launch of its smartphone for people with visual disabilities.
SmartConnect by KAPSYS will benefit from a nationwide distribution network four months after its sales launch in France. The French-made smartphone for seniors is now available not only through a network of large retailers (BOULANGER) and mass market and specialty mobile telephone service providers (CORIOLIS Telecom, MONACO Telecom, BAZILE Telecom, BUDGET Telecom,) but also from stores with expertise in assistive technology for seniors (AMPLIFON).
Designed to be easy to learn and easy to use, SmartConnect by KAPSYS combines a physical keypad, a simple voice interface with command mode and dictation mode, and a touchscreen. The phone is packed with user-friendly features. It keeps seniors of all ages connected, provides entertainment, and helps them feel safe and secure.
Aram HEKIMIAN, Managing Director of KAPSYS, explains:
"After the successful launch of SmartConnect by KAPSYS in France, we plan to extend distribution to other European countries. We are sure that this original and intuitive smartphone will attract many senior users throughout Europe."
SmartVision by KAPSYS expands the product line of the French smartphone manufacturer, adding a device aimed at people with low or impaired vision. Equipped with a multi-feature voice interface and a range of touch shortcuts (accessibility commands), SmartVision by KAPSYS also includes many features intended to make daily life easier for people with low or impaired vision: a digital magnifier, optical character recognition with text-to-speech, a one-touch geolocalised emergency call button, object identification using NFC tags, and more.
Supported by its network of partners specialising in solutions for people with visual disabilities, KAPSYS will begin distribution of its voice-assisted smartphone in March of 2014.
"We are pleased to announce that SmartVision by KAPSYS will be available starting next month. We have made good use of all our expertise in specialised applications and adapted user interfaces in creating this extraordinarily useful and accessible device," continues Aram HEKIMIAN.
