BEDFORD, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpotOn Virtual Fence – the world’s first and only dog containment and tracking system – was named the winner of a People’s Choice Stevie® Award for Favorite New Products in The 18th Annual American Business Awards®. This honor comes on the heels of SpotOn being named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the New Product – Consumer Electronics category.
This honor signifies that SpotOn is a favorite among consumers for new electronic products. The system features groundbreaking use of advanced technology for dogs. Unlike the traditional invisible fence and buried fence systems currently on the market, the SpotOn Virtual Fence lets dog owners set up a virtual containment area wherever they are. The system is also smart, offering satellite tracking in the event that the dog leaves the area as well as the ability to store fences at up to 10 locations. It is the first fence of its kind to incorporate such technology providing highly accurate positioning for containment and tracking purposes.
"We at SpotOn are incredibly humbled that our product was not only granted a Gold Stevie® Award by a panel of esteemed judges, but was also chosen by the people as their favorite new consumer electronic product,” said Ken Solinsky, founder of SpotOn Virtual Fence. “Receiving such an honor is validation of the exceptional technology we’ve developed for the pet wearable and consumer electronics industry. We look forward to continue delivering exceptional pet electronic products to consumers.”
The People’s Choice Stevie Awards for Favorite New Products are a feature of The American Business Awards in which the general public can vote for their favorite new products and services of the year.
