FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 17, 2013

Keyport, Inc. Partners with the SIEPER Group to Get Australia Ported

Las Vegas, NV – Keyport, Inc. is pleased to announce that Keyport products are now available in Australia. Previously only available online, the Keyport Slide will be sold through select specialist locksmiths throughout Australia and soon in New Zealand.

Australia is the first country outside of North America which Keyport has expanded into. “We are thrilled to partner with leading security hardware distributor, SIEPER Group, to bring Keyport to Australia and New Zealand and to offer a new way for Australians and Kiwis to show off their own individual sense of everyday carry style,” said David Cooper, president of Keyport.

Combining utility with style, the Keyport Slide reinvents the conventional keychain by consolidating the user’s most important personal items (keys, USB flash drive, mini-light, bottle opener, barcode holder, etc.) into a single, streamlined device.

Keyport’s CEO and Chief Product Designer, Josh Downes, explained, “We have always had a great deal of interest and enthusiasm from our friends Down Under, and we are looking forward to giving them an easy and affordable way to purchase Keyport products locally and to getting them ported.”

Instead of sending keys across the Globe to be custom converted into Keyport Blades in the U.S., Australians can now visit the growing list of Keyport dealers in Australia and get their personalized Keyport within minutes; saving considerable time, effort, and cost. A list of Australian Keyport dealers can be found at www.mykeyport.com.au.

About Keyport:
Keyport (mykeyport.com) combines technology, convenience, and style to redefine the way in which we customize, carry, and interact with our most frequently used personal items, typically crammed onto a keychain or stuffed uncomfortably into a pocket or purse. Our flagship product, the Keyport Slide, reinvents the conventional keychain by consolidating the user’s most important personal items (keys, USB flash drive, mini-light, bottle opener, barcode holder, etc.) into a single, streamlined device that attaches easily to any auto remote. Only slightly larger than a pack of gum, the Keyport provides quick access to keys and tools with just the slide of a thumb.

Refer a Dealer, Get a Free Keyport

Bookmark and Share

Attention Keyporters!

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a local Keyport dealer in your area so you had easy access to new Keyport products, including Blades? We are looking for experienced key cutters (e.g. locksmiths and hardware stores) with awesome customer support and a lot of enthusiasm for Keyport products to join our growing list of Authorized Keyport Dealers in the USA & Canada. We need your help in identifying and recruiting them.

You can now earn up to $75 for each new locksmith or hardware store you refer when they purchase a merchant package and join our authorized dealer network.

The referral fee structure is as follows:

  • Starter Package – Free Keyport Slide 2.0 or $29 internal credit
  • Advanced Package – $50 internal credit
  • Pro Package – $75 internal credit

There is no cap on the number of referrals you can receive, but you must be an existing customer to be eligible for a referral fee.

Key Cutter Card front/back

Key Cutter Card front/back

How Do I Do It, You Ask?

Your Keyport order comes with a locksmith card which you hand to your local key cutter when you get your Blades cut. The card gives them a bit of information on Keyport. In addition, you can print a copy of our dealer brochure and our dealer application to take with you. You can also direct them to visit mykeyport.com/dealer.html or call our dealer line at (855) KEYPORT (539-7678) x2 for more information.

Most importantly, tell them about your Keyport experience – why you bought one and how carrying Keyport products would probably encourage you to use this store for all your locksmith related needs in addition to the purchase of additional Keyport products.

How Will We Know That You Referred Someone?

We have added a referral line on the dealer application, and we will make sure to ask all new dealers who referred them. In order for a customer to collect on the referral fee, the new dealer must specifically mention the customer by full name. Ideally, you will provide them with your email address as well to make it easier for us to look up. As soon as the merchant package ships, we will credit your Keyport account accordingly.

Keyport Slide 2.0 Backed on Kickstarter

Bookmark and Share

We are halfway through our Kickstarter campaign for the Keyport Slide 2.0, and thanks to you, we soared past our initial goal of $75k in the first 35 hours! While we are excited about the campaign’s early success, we believe that we can hit a couple of stretch goals with your help. These stretch goals allow us to provide you additional options (such as the colored side plates at our first stretch goal) that we wouldn’t otherwise have the resources to be able to offer. So, every pledge makes a difference.

Keyport Slide 2.0 Kickstarter LogoFor those of you who have not already visited our Kickstarter campaign, please check it here.

Here are just a few ways the success of our Kickstarter campaign directly affects you:

  • Funds raised significantly speeds up bringing the 2.0 to market
  • We are able to offer additional options that we otherwise may not have been able to offer afterwards for some time (e.g. colored side plates)
  • New dealers and distribution opportunities that arise as a result of Kickstarter provide expand our local retail presence
  • Exciting partnership opportunities help us to widen our reach, expand our product offerings, and integrate new technologies
  • Reaching stretch goals allow us to speed up the time to new product development
  • That said, our focus from the campaign’s kick-off has been squarely fixed on delivering an exceptional product that you have helped us to develop. Getting ported, providing us your feedback, telling your friends and family about us, and backing our project on Kickstarter – each of these has a significant impact on making the 2.0 a reality, and we are most grateful for your continued support and enthusiasm.

V.01s
As we make the transition to 2.0, we are not going to continue to offer the V.01 once our current supply runs out. So, as the old saying goes, “get ‘em while they’re hot” because once a particular color is sold out, then that is it for the foreseeable future.
