Tile announced a collaboration with Intel to bring Tile’s finding power to PC original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This is the first finding technology solution to market for a broad group of PC-makers and means customers will now have the advantage of Tile’s finding technology solution in some upcoming Intel-powered laptop models. People will even be able to find their laptops when the device is in sleep mode.
“Most of the world is working from home right now, making laptops and portable devices more critical than ever. We rely on them to maintain continuity and keep information safe. But we’re also relying on them to stay connected with loved ones,” said CJ Prober, CEO of Tile. “Our work with Intel means we’ll be ready to help PC users avoid disruption and keep track of their devices once we’re all on the move again.”
“This collaboration with Tile is an exciting addition to our world-class wireless connectivity solutions,” said Eric McLaughlin, vice president in the Compute Client Group and general manager of the Wireless Solutions Group at Intel. “We are always looking for ways to further enhance PC platform experiences, and, in this case, we’re enabling new capabilities, including enhanced security by simplifying device tracking and recovery for both consumer and commercial PCs.”
The Tile and Intel teams are working closely with PC manufacturers to determine the best Tile experience for their customers, which are expected to be available later this year.
