With winter on its way and snow already falling over parts of the country, snowmobilers are getting ready to hit the trails. But if you lose your key to your snowmobile, you may be in big trouble trying to get a copy. That is now changing, as KeyMe, the rapidly growing company that is revolutionizing the locksmith industry, announced that its industry-leading key copying kiosks now allow the consumer to copy snowmobile keys right at the kiosk. With multiple snowmobile makes and models supported, KeyMe is offering keys for only $19.99.
KeyMe currently supports all the major makes and brands of snowmobiles including Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yamaha. A benefit for the consumer is with the ability to have a copy of the key in the cloud, one doesn’t have to replace the ignition if both keys are lost.
As consumers can also save any house key to the cloud, they can now do the same with their snowmobile keys, to recover a copy due to losing their keys or a lockout, they simply and securely use their fingerprint at any of the kiosks. Additionally by using KeyMe’s free iOS and Android apps, keys can be ordered and stored in the cloud, then accessed and printed at a kiosk saving hundreds of dollars that would ordinarily be spent on an emergency locksmith visit.
KeyMe supports key duplication for all types of keys: automotive, including “fob” keys, golf carts, ATVs, motorhomes, boats, scooters, jetskis and hovercrafts. The company is rapidly expanding and plans to add more than 3,000 next-generation kiosks by the end of 2017 in leading retailers, including: 7-Eleven, Albertsons, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kmart, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Mall of America, Rite Aid, Safeway and Sears.
“We take the pain out of key duplication and make the process seamless, with the highest security implemented in the industry,” said Greg Marsh, founder and CEO of KeyMe.
KeyMe recently announced a new $15 million Series C round of funding led by QuestMark Partners. This follows a $20 million Series B round of funding in December 2015, bringing total funding to $45M. All previous investors participated in an oversubscribed round, including Comcast Ventures, Battery Ventures, White Star Capital, 7-Eleven, Ravin Gandhi, and the Polsky Family Office, among others.
In addition to convenience, KeyMe offers unprecedented accuracy to the key duplication process. Traditional key duplication services have 15-20 percent error rates as a result of their “tracing” methodology. KeyMe’s advanced robotics and artificial intelligence technology produces key copies that are more accurate than the originals.
KeyMe has introduced unprecedented security and control into key duplication and lockouts, services historically fraught with scams and unscrupulous emergency locksmiths. KeyMe provides accountability across the entire customer experience. For every key made, there exists a detailed transaction history, financial paper trail and fingerprint encryption at login. KeyMe provides a “closed loop” security trail with its technology.
