Consumer Cellular Enters the Personal Emergency Response Market With Launch of the Ally

Consumer Cellular Uses Boomer and Senior Expertise to Make mPERS Service Easy and Affordable

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2015) - Consumer Cellular, the mobile carrier with the highest overall customer satisfaction according to Nielsen Mobile Insights, has entered the mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) market with the launch of the Ally. This marks Consumer Cellular's first mPERS offering and is available through the Consumer Cellular website and customer call centers.

"In the past, mPERS devices and contracts have been expensive and confusing," said John Marick, CEO of Consumer Cellular. "Thanks to Consumer Cellular's expansive experience with boomers and seniors, we've managed to make the process much simpler and more affordable by mirroring our no-contract cellular offerings."

The Ally was a natural line extension for Consumer Cellular given its benefit to seniors and its use of cellular technology. "Many of our current customers have been searching for affordable options in the mPERS space for themselves or for their aging parents," continued Marick. "We're happy to have found a solution that will provide peace of mind for our customers and that, in the event of an accident, help will be on the way."

The Ally is the most robust mPERS available, designed for active seniors who want to continue to live independently while having the security that help is only a click away. The device features embedded fall detection and motion sensors, instant hands-free communication, GPS location services, remotely managed two-way voice communication both in and outside the home and is water and impact resistant.
