What is the product or service and why is it appropriate for selection

Marissa DonezWhat is the product or service and why is it appropriate for selection?The product I would choose is a GPS tracker for children with autism. This is appropriatesince there is not many on the market and could use some marketing upgrades and as Ihave a child with autism and have experience with a “wanderer” it would be nice to createa product that would benefit me. If the product or service will compete with one that already exists, how will you change it tobe different? What is your competitive edge?The most prominent GPS tracker for children with special needs is AngelSense. If I couldchange my product to be more competitive I would make it so that it lasts a long time, issmall and able to be placed conveniently (I think there should be various types for varioussituations), there could also be different style to make it less obvious because the lastthing you want is a child with special needs to feel even more like an outsider. I think therecould also be products such as cases to protect against water much like phones havecases. AngelSense has a monthly service fee and has voice monitoring as well as updatesof when child might possibly have left school or other common areas. It also has a specialmagnet key lock that is needed to remove the device, but it can only be attached to achilds belt or inside pocket. This is where different types would come in handy such aswatches, necklaces, or even discretely hidden or made on shoes. To me it’s almost like aphone but just a different market. My son would never wear a watch due to sensory issuesbut if it was already made onto or within a shoe he would never notice. Having it in hispocket would make him anxious because he would want to take it out. Eventually peoplewill begin to recognize when a child has the device in their pocket and in cases ofkidnapping their clothes could easily be changed and thrown out. There are severalsituations to think about but a line of products for this market could potentially beextremely successful.Marketing Project: Product or Service IdentificationMKTU 301 Week 3 Assignment and RubricLength:Due:Value:Post: Paper: 3 – 4 double-spaced pages (excluding title and references pages)Week 3 by Sunday Midnight100 Points for 10% of the gradeWeek 3 Assignments By Sunday midnight, prepare a 3 – 4 page double-spaced paper that describes your product orservice, your target market, the need(s) this product or service meets, and how it is differentfrom the competition.
