TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2017 /CNW/ - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves brands, commercial locations, retailers and service providers throughout North America, today announced receipt of a purchase order from Rich Multimedia Technologies ("RMT") for 100 Smart Antennas for use with their Tele-Direct Store Front Kiosks ("Kiosks) in the Denver, Colorado airport.
iSIGN will be supplying the Smart Antennas from its existing inventories and will be, at the request of RMT, removing the standard stick antenna, so that RMT can use their Loop Antenna in order to meet airport requirements.
iSIGN anticipates that shipment will be by February 27. Installation of the Smart Antennas will begin once the antennas are modified with the Loop Antennas. Once installed, RMT will be using iSIGN's Proximity Mobile Marketing Solution ("PMMS") to deliver promotions and advertisements on the network. In addition, RMT will be introducing iSIGN's Security Alert Messaging Solution ("SAMS"), using samples prepared by iSIGN.
Currently, RMT is in the process of expanding its Kiosks network in airports located in both the United States and Canada.
Airports today incorporate all the features of large suburban shopping malls. They have retail shops and food services to serve a large captive foot traffic audience Thanks to today's travel requirements, travels are generally in the airport hours prior to flights, the majority with smartphones that are on and available to receive iSIGN's proximity messaging throughout the airport concourses. All of this combines to make the RMT Kiosk advertising more effective with increased mindshare and proof of performance.
The immediate revenue generated by this first shipment will be approximately $67,000 Cdn. As these 100 Smart Antennas are installed and broadcasting commences, iSIGN's ongoing monthly revenue for broadcasting and data management services will begin, as will the collection of the anonymous data generated by the interaction of its technology solution with travellers' mobile devices from this site.
"We look forward to extending the effectiveness of the advertising displayed on our Kiosks by using iSIGN's technology to deliver messaging to mobile devices," said Mr. Sal Haro, Rich Multimedia Technologies President and Chief Executive Officer. "We expect that the use of iSIGN's Smart Antenna will bring more traffic to our network, while enabling travellers to carry messages with them when they leave the area."
"iSIGN's major advantage is that it doesn't require individuals to download an app to receive messages," added Mr. Haro. "We feel this is critical in today's market, as is the added feature of a security alert network in all airports."
