Creators (CEO, Wee Sung Wook), participated in 'CES 2017' that is the world's largest IT consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow held in Las Vegas, the United States from January 5th to January 8th by receiving a support from Smart Venture Institute of Kyungpook National University and exhibited a mobile saving service, 'Tortoise,' that connected health care and pin-tech.
Tortoise is a new saving platform converged with health care and pin-tech. This is a service that users do activities in their lives and automatically save small sum of money every day. If the users set up the number of the desired steps and amount of money to save, the money will be automatically saved in Tortoise's account.
Creators connects two different services into one for users to be able to chase two hares at once because it is good to constantly keep working out and saving. The more users walk, the higher rate of interest Tortoise provides than other commercial banks do.
If people who go on diets stop themselves from eating food they want to eat and click the corresponding food icons, money is saved as much as the price of the food menu. Also, users can confirm a change in the amount of money saved live in real time according to the changing rate of interest. Like this, Tortoise encourages the users to get into a good habit to work out through money.
Also, it is very beneficial because a small scale of local bank branches can extend this service to other areas and reduce marketing expenses. In the future, Tortoise will be released in the United Stated at the end of January.
Cooperating with banks in Chicago, Creators allow users to buy depositor insurance and increase the financial safety.
The CEO of Creators Korea, Son Tae Joon, said, "We plan to provide this service in South Korea after releasing it in the United States. For this, we are looking for partner banks to work on the project with us."
Also, CES (Consumer Technology Show), which is the world's largest IT consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow, is a good opportunity to figure out the flow of the global electronic industry at a glance and is held on every January by CTA (Consumer Technology Association).
Aving News Korea, which have reported issues of CES, MWC, and IFA as the world' three major technology exhibitions the most for the last 10 years, will send a special group of reporters to CES, report main issues of the markets, and introduce Korean enterprises all over the world this year.
