(CSE: MTEC) for various aspects of Loop’s technology in return for CDN$2,000,000 in cash and common shares as well as a revenue-sharing arrangement.

Maitri Health Technologies is focused on modernizing healthcare systems for a post-pandemic world. Global events in 2020 identified the need for long-term security in both healthcare and the workplace. Maitri is a global platform for healthcare supply security providing a reliable source of certified PPE (personal protective equipment) and testing solutions through an onshore manufacturing model. This model has led to the creation of innovative and industry-leading products integrated with technology to help track, trace, and enable safer workplaces and communities.

The global market for PPE is expected to exceed USD$123 Billion by 2027 according to Grandview Research . The global workplace safety market is expected to grow to USD$19.9 Billion by 2025 according to Research and Markets .

Maitri’s PPE line of products combined with Loop Insights technology represents the convergence of a powerful PPE, AI, and Proptech offering that enables operators, businesses and building owners to reopen and protect all constituents with a documented process from verified PPE to venue management and artificial intelligence-driven marketing opportunities. This combined protocol enables physical buildings to fully reopen, generate revenue, and remain viable assets under end-to-end protection.

As a result, Loop Insights gains access to another major industry component that is essential to the safe re-opening of the global economy and society.

“Our relationship with Loop technology will create the opportunity to deliver a more complete safety protocol along with our existing products and offerings,” said Andrew Morton , CEO of Maitri. “We’re well-positioned to play a significant role supporting a path to global economic recovery.”

Under the pilot agreement, Loop and Maplin intend to pursue joint marketing and revenue sharing opportunities through SaaS and ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) models

  • Announced the launch of a Pilot agreement with Maplin Electronics, the UK’s leading online electronics retailer, to implement Loop’s real-time artificial intelligence analytics platform.
  • Loop Insights CEO, Rob Anson, stated, “This opportunity with Maplin represents our first enterprise eCommerce retailer, providing Loop with a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate the power of our real-time, artificial intelligence-driven engagement to online customers….”

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 04, 2021 — Loop Insights Inc. (MTRX:TSXV (RACMF:OTCQB) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement, and automated venue tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce the launch of a Pilot agreement with Maplin Electronics, the UK’s leading online electronics retailer, to implement Loop’s real-time artificial intelligence analytics platform.

Loop Insights CEO, Rob Anson, stated, “This opportunity with Maplin represents our first enterprise eCommerce retailer, providing Loop with a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate the power of our real-time, artificial intelligence-driven engagement to online customers. Loop will deliver operational efficiencies for Maplin by providing real-time intelligence focused on supply chain and demand analysis, as well as inventory and fulfillment analytics, enabling us to showcase our AI forecasting tools. I have every reason to believe the pilot will be a great success for Maplin and open up the door to further lucrative global enterprise eCommerce opportunities.”

Agreement with Maplin Represents Loop’s Continued Expansion Into UK’s Retail Industry, Including Brick and Mortar and Now Ecommerce

Under the terms of the agreement, Loop will deploy its Insights platform consisting of the Company’s web-based portal, analytics dashboard, and AI-driven retail insights. Maplin will also provide Loop with access to web traffic data from its eCommerce platform, allowing the Company to create a unified picture of Maplin’s retail business in the digital world, thus creating new opportunities for increased revenues, consumer engagement, and data monetization.

Upon successful completion of the Pilot, it is the intention of both parties to implement Loop’s artificial intelligence-driven analytics platform for both Maplin and all of its suppliers including major electronics brands such as Sony, Panasonic, and Samsung.

Maplin Managing Director, Ollie Marshall, stated, “The signing of this agreement with Loop Insights is the first step towards enhancing our retail capabilities as Maplin looks to optimize its eCommerce operations. As a company that is 100% online, we are dedicated to remaining true to our consumer-focused brand, offering quality electronic products for consumers across Europe. Loop’s AI-driven retail insights add a new dimension to Maplin’s operations that will greatly optimize our operations and improve our overall customer experience.”

Insights Revenue Model Provides Potential For Recurring Annual Revenue Streams, Including Annual SaaS Licenses and ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) Fees

In previous press releases announcing new and completed successful pilots, Loop has provided shareholders with details pertaining to its pricing models for greater transparency. Each of those models pertained to physical chain locations with numerous tills per location.

The nature of this eCommerce Pilot Agreement does not include tills. As such, Loop expects to generate revenue through ongoing SaaS and ARPU (Average revenue per user) fees in addition to data analysis that will provide both Maplin and suppliers with an improved understanding of consumer trends. In addition, when the Company’s automated marketing “Engage” service and wallet pass loyalty applications are layered in, these numbers quickly multiply by 5-10x and provide the company with an even more significant potential revenue stream.

Finally, both Loop and Maplin intend to pursue additional monetization opportunities on a revenue-sharing basis using Loop’s brand segmentation capabilities. Maplin and Loop expect to also generate revenues through combined data sharing opportunities with Maplin suppliers and brands seeking retail insights data that can be leveraged for targeted omnichannel advertising. Under the Maplin model, these targeted marketing opportunities are expected to drive sales of niche and seasonal goods based on the optimization of trends and consumer data.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 26, 2021 — Loop Insights Inc.

Loop Insights and Empower Clinics will lead a coalition to deploy the necessary infrastructure needed to enable the economic recovery of the local Vancouver economy. Under the leadership of Loop and Empower, the Re-open Vancouver coalition will focus on a science and data-driven approach to delivering an integrated end-to-end solution worthy of re-opening Vancouver’s robust tourism industry, including its convention center and cruise ship industry. According to Your Canada , Vancouver’s tourism industry generates approximately 15 million unique visitors per year.

Following the Canadian federal government’s announcement that all international travelers will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the country, Loop and Empower feel the two companies are uniquely positioned to provide a combined solution in the form of a digital Wallet pass with bank-level security and privacy that can be offered to travelers visiting Vancouver.

Steven McAuley, Chairman, and CEO of Empower stated “Benefiting from the leadership of two local Vancouver public companies, with the support of significant private and public sector participants, Re-open Vancouver is confident it will demonstrate how crucial our efforts are to the economy of the City of Vancouver, the Province of B.C. and Canada. In partnership with Loop Insights, we have market-proven tools, services, testing products, and healthcare infrastructure to make this happen now.”

Tourism Industry Facing $3.3 Trillion In Global Losses Due to Closures

According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the tourism industry stands to lose up to $3.3 trillion in revenue due to closures if the industry is to remain shuttered for a year. In an effort to prevent these losses, Loop Insights will continue to work with Empower to deploy its integrated venue management platform to protect industries in need of robust safety and security protocols. To date, the Re-open Vancouver Coalition has entered into conversations with leading stakeholders in the tourism, travel, and hospitality industries.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “Many key provincial stakeholders in the travel, tourism, and hospitality sector have recently reached out as a result of our most recent successes deploying Loop’s venue management platform. Operators are in desperate need of a seamless and transformative solution that kickstarts the economic recovery process. Along with Empower Clinics, we will look to work with industries’ best of breed partners to deliver a unified solution that ensures best practice considerations in regards to the health, safety, and wellbeing of local residents and tourists alike.“

Loop Insights first partnered with Empower Clinics in October 2020 to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications, and testing procedures based on published guidelines.
