Everyone can finally enjoy simple communication technology.
Can yet another screen at home provide more closeness between friends and family? If you ask missmo’s creator the answer is YES. This small screen that sticks to your fridge looks like a post-it note and is ready to take on the world.
The idea for missmo came from Robert Grey, Omylis’ founder.
“My first idea for missmo was to create a communal screen at home that everyone could use. These days families often sit around, all with their own touchscreen or smartphone, not interacting with each other at all. missmo is the new family communicator that helps share personal messages, useful information (such as weather reports) and family reminders”, says Robert.
missmo uses the mobile network and doesn’t require complex set-up. As soon as you take missmo out of the box and plug it in it’s ready to use. Omylis’s business model includes reselling via telecom operator channels, as a way to boost their sale of home gadgets and increase their subscriber bases. The company will soon establish partnerships with telecom operators in Europe. “Extreme simplicity of use and a long battery life are missmo’s main strengths”, Robert points out.
Choosing WSI as collaboration partner to develop missmo resulted from a previous collaboration with WSI’s CEO Jan-Åke Lundkvist.
“Our collaboration this time began accidently at an airport in December 2015. Thanks to WSI’s cutting-edge knowledge, industry partners, and professional way of collaborating, we obtained the missmo that we had envisioned”, says Robert.
A digital post-it note was exactly what the creators of missmo envisioned. And with Project Manager Jens Barkvall at the helm, WSI really sunk its teeth into the project. The definitive version of missmo is now ready to be launched in Europe and North America.
Cofounder of Omylis, the company behind missmo, Robert Grey’s kitchen was teeming with post-it notes for everyone in the family. On his way to work one day, Robert realised that he’d forgotten to leave a sticky note for his family. Imagine if he could have just sent an SMS as a digital post-it note that everyone at home could see. The idea for missmo was born.
More than just a post-it note
“missmo’s functions may sound simple at first, but thanks to a mobile network connection, missmo can be an excellent aide in all sorts of ways. Like if a person needs to take medicine at various times every day. missmo will remind you to take it, including the instructions from the doctor or other healthcare personnel”, says Jens Barkvall who is involved in the final stages of the missmo project. He also has the end responsibility for product development at WSI.
