B.C.'s leading technology association is first major partner for
B.C.-based Peer-to-Peer currency exchange pioneer
VANCOUVER, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - With increasing business between Canada and
the United States, the BC Technology Industry Association (BCTIA) will
immediately save thousands of dollars just through a currency exchange (Forex)
solution provided by its new partner PeerFX.
B.C.-based PeerFX offers a peer-to-peer currency exchange solution that
cuts out the middleman and passes savings on to its customers. Under the
partnership agreement, BCTIA's over 2,100 members receive exclusive Forex
discounts through PeerFX.
On an annual basis, comparisons of PeerFX versus bank rates reveal that
BCTIA member companies can save enough money to hire an additional employee.
The partnership was developed because BCTIA's members have significant
business relations with United States-based constituents, meaning members
would either receive or pay U.S. dollars.
"We are very excited about this new partnership with PeerFX," Pamela
Oram, Manager of Membership for BCTIA said. "The need for currency exchange
and other financial services will increase as B.C.'s technology companies
expand beyond the Canadian border. We are confident that this service will add
value to BCTIA members."
Florence Leung, President of PeerFX said, "BCTIA is the first of many
industry associations and business partners we foresee coming on board. Our
target in the next three to six months is to sign on twenty business
associations similar to BCTIA in North America."
Businesses exchanging $100,000 could save close to $2000 so the cost
savings to companies that do business in both Canada and the United States can
