The CEO with Raz Mobility talks about how useful the product can be.
“The idea behind the phone is to make the experience as easy as possible for the users so they can communicate and stay in touch with their families for a longer period of time,” said Robert Felgar, CEO, Raz Mobility.
One of those products includes the Raz Memory Cell Phone.
“So, what this phone does is it simplifies the process and it’s got one screen only and the screen has pictures to send to the picture of the contacts and users simply taps on the contact they want to call so all they have to remember what the person looks like. Although, there are names underneath the picture and the call will go through,” said Felgar.
Loved ones and caregivers have the ability to monitor cell phone use through the portal.
The portal is used to create and edit contacts, track the location of the user, check the phone’s battery power or signal strength, it even has the ability to restrict incoming calls including predatory robocalls.
