Did you know that 1% of all pieces of luggage conveyed by airlines are go astray? For a family of five traveling twice a year, that means a 20% chance every year of a bag’s going missing or being lost. The risk is much higher for flights that involve transfers. In can be a nightmare when mobile phones, cameras, iPads, laptops or bicycles are lost in transit. Yet when they arrive at a lost-property office or police station, only about 25% are returned to the owner because there is no simple way to track down the owner. HomingPin comes to the rescue, offering baggage loops with tags, key rings and asset labels that have a unique number on them. The numbers are activated by providing the company with the customer’s mobile phone number(s) and email address. The finder can then connect to the owner by going online to homingpin.com or, if at an airport, using their WorldTracer system for baggage handling. By inputting their details and the Homing PIN number found, a text message is sent instantly to the owner. The finder is not given information about the owner.
