South Miami, FL, July 10, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- An innovative new product designed to effectively address a common problem related to the retrieval of the mail, particularly in residential settings, the Mail Alert, has been developed by Perry Dubois of Spartanburg, South Carolina. The invention's unique design allows its users to be made aware of when there is mail waiting to be picked up from their receptacle.
The Mail Alert’s eliminates unnecessary trips to the mailbox for those with physical limitations, such as the handicapped and the elderly. The product will keep people from exposing themselves unnecessarily to inclement weather in order to check if they have received mail. Additionally, the Mail Alert will help to curtail theft of mail by insuring its users are aware of when their mail has arrived. Furthermore, it will be easy to implement in virtually any model of mailbox and competitively priced, adding to its appeal.
The Mail Alert is also in Patent Pending status within the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The inventor of the Mail Alert now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the household products industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the Mail Alert on a worldwide basis.
In October 2013, Mr. DuBois contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Mail Alert to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through its unique and patented licensing methodology and its participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year.
