Business Information and Images
Poort Technologies Inc. is an industrial design firm manufacturing advanced 5G tablet enclosures. The company has designed and produces enclosures for tablets such as the iPad and Microsoft Surface Go that upgrade the hundreds of millions of those tablets in existence to become fixed, smart appliances.
5G Terminals High Speed, low latency applications for either iOS and Windows 10 can be deployed over kitchen counters, and workplaces as control stations - for all web, messaging, and video (Netflix etc.) streaming content. These Poorts (alone) maintain an independent Web, YouTube etc. as free services using just 10W over WiFi.
Development is Complete The company has two completed plastic injection moulds, made of premium, long-life steel, now in contracted production in Richmond (Steveston) BC. Poort ownership need only order production runs, and can operate the business from any location in the world.
Production Cost and Distribution Cost per kit is ~$20 CDN and sells for $40 USD. Amazon warehouses, displays, ships and remits revenue for all transactions in North America, requiring only intermittent bulk stocking. The firm is already profitable on Amazon, although Poort is newly listed there (Oct/18) and no marketing has yet been initiated.
Design Features and Advantages The Poort enclosure features an open back, which allows it to cover a counter-top electrical outlet completely. This hides the charging cable entirely, and permits the device to then hang from one or two screws. right in tile grout if necessary, for simple, non-destructive mounting; even over ceramic backsplashes. A Poort uses no counter space, stays out of the way and is easy to keep clean. It can be dismounted and is portable to anywhere in seconds, by simply lifting it off its mounting screw(s).
