TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ISD) (OTCQX:ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America, is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with POS Canada ("POS") to develop a mutual solution that will integrate mobile messaging with point-of-sale data.
The joint solution will be available with POS equipment for use in the hospitality channel, helping close the loop between mobile messaging and final purchase information - in real time. Retailers, advertisers and brands will now be able to take advantage of iSIGN's proximity messaging power, enhanced with real-time transactional data at any location that is equipped with an iSIGN Smart Antenna.
This unique and exclusive collaboration will enable an instant measurement of return on investment and provide insight into consumer opt-ins and ad downloads, along with resulting purchases from mobile advertisements and offers.
The resulting clean and anonymous raw data gathered from each location will be forwarded to iSIGN's data partners for parsing, resulting in preferential and predictive data. The marriage of mobile-messaging data with point-of-sale data will be available to all existing and future clients of POS, and will be exclusive to all POS solutions. It is expected that the value of this combined data will be substantially higher for brands than that of mobile data on its own.
This data will also be available for sale to researchers, marketers and analytic institutions. iSIGN expects that its future data sales will generate a higher sales price than generated by its current data sales.
Both companies look forward to implementing this exclusive mobile/point-of-sale data solution to all of their mutual sales channels.
iSIGN and POS Canada will be jointly present March 2 to 4, 2014 at the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association Show, taking place in Toronto, to introduce and promote this timely and unique solution to the estimated 11,000 attendees and exhibitors.
iSIGN will be introducing and promoting this solution at the Digital Signage Expo 2014 in Las Vegas beginning February 12, 2014.
"Proximity messaging to mobile devices merged with a retailers' point-of-sale system is the 'Holy Grail' of business intelligence data," said Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "With this new joint solution, retailers and businesses can now instantly receive feedback for their advertising in real time, helping them to gauge shopper's wants and needs and measure resulting purchases, which will help them further personalize future offers."
