CODi Introduces Innovative Mobile Technology Protection at CES

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CODi, a global leader in the manufacture and supply of mobile technology protection, will be attending the 2013 International CES, held January 8-11 in Las Vegas.  The CODi marketing team and executives will be hosting meetings with key customers, channel partners and media at the Trump International Hotel to showcase its extensive suite of highly protective, high-performance premium laptop cases and mobile accessories.  In recent reviews, PC Magazine called one line of CODi laptop cases "exceedingly lightweight," "comfortable" and outfitted with "compartments galore… good for carrying a small laptop, netbook, or tablet."

"CODi experienced rapid growth, an expanded product line and increasing demand for its mobile protection products in 2012, and we expect 2013 to be even bigger and better with the launch of a broader portfolio featuring enhanced, premium materials and industry-leading design," said William Olson, CODi CEO.  "CES is a terrific platform for us to kick off the new year and showcase our most innovative mobility solutions to key customers, channel partners and media."

Four major areas of focus that CODi will be presenting at CES are:

CT3 Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Bags & Cases:
Statistics show that some 600,000 laptops are lost or stolen each year, and 40 percent of those losses take place at security checkpoints.  For the 3.5 million business travelers that fly each week, CODi offers its CT3 solution: a line of checkpoint tested bags, backpacks and wheelers that is specially designed to save time, eliminate hassle and protect property while navigating airport security.  An innovative, user-friendly butterfly design allows the cases to lie flat while passing through airport x-ray machines, eliminating the need to remove the laptop from the case.  A dedicated laptop compartment is heavily padded for protection with CODi grade ballistic nylon, but still provides an unobstructed view for screening.  The CT3 Tri-Pak is a best-seller.

Ergo-Centric Design:
Some 20 percent of all workplace injuries are neck and back related.  And after the common cold, musculoskeletal disorders are the leading cause of lost office time.  For a positive ergo experience, CODi's Signature line combines innovative design with informed ergonomic research and customer reviews.  Laptop cases, backpacks and wheelers have been thoughtfully constructed to provide strength and durability without added weight; on average, cases weigh in at a scant 3.5 pounds.  Wide, padded, adjustable, off-set straps help distribute weight evenly and reduce stress and strain on the body, as do leather-wrapped comfort handles. 

iPad & Tablet Solutions:
Nearly 95 percent of Fortune 500 companies are testing or deploying tablets, and more than one-third of all companies are using the tablet as a laptop replacement.  In addition, almost ¾ of all companies allow some measure of 'bring your own device' usage.  On trend, CODi offers a range of case options to protect iPads and tablets from daily wear and tear.  And for an enhanced experience, CODi accessories – including the popular Bluetooth® Keyboard and Case for iPad® 2, 3 and 4, and the Dual USB charger – help mobile professionals stay plugged in and productive.

CODi Labs Custom Design Solutions:
CODi's in-house Custom Labs team specializes in designing and crafting cases that address unique company requirements.  Bags can also be branded with custom embroidery or embossed leather ID tags, pre- or post-production.
