TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 10, 2012) - 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 the successful completion of the broadcasting trial of its Interactive Marketing Solutions ("IMS") 3.1 software and Bluetooth antennas at selected Mac's Convenience Stores Inc. ("Mac's") outlets.
For the past month, iSIGN and Mac's have been conducting a broadcasting test of iSIGN's IMS software and antennas at selected Mac's stores, to determine the public's acceptance of messaging to cell phones. Based upon the positive response to this trial, the two companies met last week and agreed to rollout the broadcasting of content to all 565 Mac's stores in the province of Ontario, commencing this month.
"We're very pleased that the trial is completed," said Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "I had no doubt in my mind that it would be anything but successful. Now that this trial is behind us, we are looking forward to moving ahead with growing the advertising on the Mac's network."
iSIGN is also pleased to announce that through its resellers it is negotiating with a major confectionery company to be the first advertiser on the Mac's network with broadcasting to cell phones.
"We will continue to gather metrics from the broadcasting throughout the network and are experiencing a wide range of inquiries from various brands that are interested in being involved with the network and broadcasting to cell phones," stated Mr. Romanov.
