TORONTO, July 19, 2018 /CNW/ - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile messaging solutions for commercial and security purposes announces that its Chilean reseller, Smart Sign, has signed an agreement with a major mining company for a pilot project for iSIGN's Security Alert Messaging ("SAM") technology.
The pilot project is designed to allow the mine to familiarize themselves with the operation and management of the SAM technology and back-end reporting system. During the pilot they will be sending messages utilizing the SAM App for Android and Apple phones, as well as via text and email. This pilot project will run for a maximum four-week period and will involve a selected number of employees and management at the mining operation's headquarters. This focus group of key decision makers will be reviewing and assessing the best uses and applications for SAM.
Completion of this pilot will lead to the use of SAM at the company's various mines located in Chile and potentially to their other South American operations and the remainder of their world-wide operations. The mining company employs approximately 6,400 people in South America and 27,000 worldwide throughout their various operations.
The mining company is looking for a system that allows them to communicate directly and easily with their employees on and off site, for both safety measures as well as for normal communications, including directing their staff to their specific work areas prior to their arrival at the mine and to remind them to bring the required safety and other certifications that are specific to the areas where they will be working that day.
iSIGN's SAM technology allows the mine to meet their stated goals. SAM can be used to communicate with their workers, individually, in a selected group or en masse, as the company chooses. The messages can be related to security or safety issues, general communications or for safety and hazard warnings and alerts. The company would be fully in charge of their system, with access to their own back-end system to allow for immediate communication with their employees when and as required.
Both iSIGN and its Chilean reseller, Smart Sign, anticipate that this pilot and its conclusion will help with the discussions currently underway with other mining companies in Chile, as well as with other companies in this channel.
