Available for iSIGN, its Resellers and Clients
TORONTO, March 29, 2016 /CNW/ - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile proximity advertising solutions announced that it has signed an agreement with Commercial Funding Group Inc. ("CFG") to act as iSIGN's exclusive leasing agent for the United States, Canada and Australia to facilitate and serve an expected increased demand for our Smart Antennas.
The ability to offer a leasing component provides an alternate payment solution to the Company's resellers and clients to acquire the Company's hardware. Resellers and client now have the ability to choose between purchasing and paying for hardware outright prior to shipment or electing to amortize the hardware cost over a set period of time of up to five years.
This leasing facility is also available for iSIGN's resellers to use with their clients. LED Solutions Manufacturing Inc., our exclusive reseller for the Canadian outdoor signage market, has already contacted CFG to set up a leasing facility.
"We had discussions with several leasing companies prior to closing CFG," stated Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "We chose CFG as they have a better understanding of our product and marketplace than the other companies we spoke with and have the ability to handle leases in the United States, Canada and Australia."
"We anticipate that the leasing alternative will prove to be very attractive to both our resellers and their clients," added Mr. Romanov. "As CFG has stated that their forwarding of funds will be within 2 business days there will be no impact upon either our cash flow or that of our resellers."
