TORONTO, April 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. (“iSIGN” or “Company”) (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile proximity marketing and public security alert solutions, today announced the signing on an agreement with Corbiz Strategies (“Corbiz”) to introduce iSIGN’s Safety Alert Messaging (“SAM”) technology solution to retirement homes across Canada.
Corbiz is a Canadian company that specializes in the creation of business plans; marketing analysis and strategies, including brand identity, customer engagement, sales objectives and training. They have pre-existing business relationships with thousands of retirement homes across Canada and understand how SAM can be utilized as a communications tool both within the home for staff and residents and beyond the home for the families of residents.
As does iSIGN, Corbiz sees SAM as tool that homes can use for sharing COVID-19 information quickly and also sees SAM as a method to send normal communications concerning ‘home news’, event announcements, etc. to residents both now and in the future.
“I consider SAM to be a perfect tool to provide a contact point for residents and their families,” stated Ms. Kimberley Mills, Chief Executive Officer of Corbiz. “I believe that as SAM can reduce administrative time currently being spent on communicating with the families of residents, that the conversion into paid subscription at the end of the no-charge period or even before is very probable.”
SAM is a technology based mobile messaging system that enables the controlled broadcast of critical information to registered recipients. Registered recipients can be as broad as the general public, or as narrow as salaried and contract employees and can be assigned into various sub-groups, allowing for messages to be directed only to specific groups or to everyone, depending on needs. Due to SAM’s ‘message received’ alert function, SAM messages are more obvious to recipients when they are received than simple texts and email.
As SAM supports iOS and Android in-app messaging, the SAM app is available in both the Google Play and Apple app stores. Broadcasters log into the SAM dashboard via their web browser, create and then send messages to their registered recipients in a matter of minutes. Sent messages are stored within the dashboard for later reference as required until the sender deletes them.
Corbiz shares iSIGN desire to help combat the spread of COVID-19 and aid in the return of normalcy to everyday life and as such, is offering their services on a no-charge basis during this crisis situation.
