It's been an incredible year thus far for the team at Verti Smart Technologies! As we've steadily maneuvered through the product development cycle, I can say it's been a very exciting experience and at other times it’s been very humbling.

The idea for Verti Smart Tags began nearly two years ago after getting fed up with misplacing my keys. I started out on a journey to create a device that would forever change the way we keep track of our items and the rise of the Smartphone offered a unique opportunity to do just that.

To watch a good idea grow into an actual “hardware product” has been a fulfilling experience to say the least. We recently received our latest iteration prototype and it’s good to hold a fully functional product in hand! (See the Hardware Development post for pictures) Though tweaks have to be made (increasing ring volume) and more testing has to be done, we’re still progressing through our milestones and product completion is near.

The Verti mobile app design has been completed and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the user experience and interface of the app. Our development team will begin coding next week as we prepare for the process of selecting Beta testers that can provide constructive feedback regarding the product. Please let me know if you’re interested in participating in our Beta testers program.

Also, if you haven’t already, please be sure to view our very first commercial that was released on Valentine’s Day this past February.

As supporters we still need your help with spreading the word, so please be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates. Once again thanks for your support!
