Datametrex $DM.ca Expands Distribution of Film and Television #Coronavirus Testing Across Canada and Provides Revenue Guidance, Top-Line Revenue Estimates From Current Work Is Approx. $20 million $PFM.ca $VQS.ca $SPOT.ca $ADK.ca

  • Currently, supplying COVID-19 Tests for thirteen film productions launched in Vancouver, with additions in Montreal, and Toronto.
  • Currently executing over 4000 tests per week.
  • Top-line revenue estimates from the current work is approx. $20 million.

Toronto, Ontario–(October 27, 2020) – Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTC Pink: DTMXF) (the “Company” or “Datametrex”) is pleased to update its shareholders on the growth of film and television production COVID TESTING. As Film and Television studios continue to expand productions throughout Canada, Datametrex is being requested by its current clients to take on more coronavirus testing for their portfolio of productions across the country.

The Company has also been approached by additional film and studio companies for Datametrex to assist with fulfilling the studio with their own testing needs. Based on these current contracts, and additional opportunities for testing services which the Company is pursuing and in discussions for, management believes that the Company is on track to achieve approximately 4,000 tests per week, based on current operations Datametrex, current cost and revenue model, would result in revenue of approximately $20 million over the next 28 weeks. There can be no assurance or guarantee that this revenue amount will result for the Company.

The global film and video market is expected to decline from $252.9 billion in 2019 to $244.4 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -3.4%. The decline is mainly due to economic slowdown across countries owing to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. The market is then expected to recover and grow at a CAGR of 5% from 2021 and reach $284 billion in 2023.

(https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20200821005370/en/Global-Film-and-Video-Market-Report-2020-to-2030—COVID-19-Impact-and-Recovery—ResearchAndMarkets.com)

Marshal Gunter, CEO, said, “I must first say thank you to the entire team at Datametrex along with the medical and lab professionals for their tireless work at the company. We are ramping up our business to meet increasing demand and our expectation based on what we are seeing in the market is to execute on approximately 10,000 tests per week on a progressive basis. We are witnessing a paradigm shift within the film industry. With the advent of movie theaters being closed in numerous regions around the globe due to government enforced shut downs by coronavirus, film and television companies rely more on at-home streaming services to maintain a robust revenue model. Content production is key to this and Canada is a major platform for content development. The demand remains high for qualified medical professionals from the private sector to be on site, and in the lab, ensuring complete and timely delivery of coronavirus tests supplied by Datametrex.” He continued, “with our growing revenue model, we remain committed to our shareholders and will announce further developments with additional conference calls and press releases in the coming weeks.”

  • Loop Insights now has the ability to offer rapid test and lab results to any organization searching for a complete end-to-end COVID-19 solution across all 50 states
  • The combined product offering featuring Loop’s end-to-end solution will focus on stadiums, hospitals, long-term care facilities, construction sites, HR administration, campuses, airlines, cruise ships, resorts, and government buildings

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 27, 2020 — Loop Insights Inc. (MTRX:TSXV) (RACMF:OTCQB) (the “Company” or “Loop”) is pleased to announce that the company has signed a referral and partnership agreement with Summit Services Inc. dba Summit One Source (“Summit”) to provide a complete end-to-end integrated COVID-19 management solution consisting of rapid mobile testing, integrated lab results, and exposure alert notification capabilities.

Together with Summit, Loop Insights has established a comprehensive end-to-end testing and venue tracing solution that can be integrated into any physical environment, allowing organizations to safely reopen their facilities while reintroducing students, fans, or workers.

As part of the agreement with Summit, Loop’s AI-powered data platform will bring the ability to bridge siloed data between Summit’s existing clients. Additionally, Loop will utilize Summit’s partners to deliver one fully-integrated COVID-19 end-to-end product inclusive of:

  • Mobile Lab Testing
  • Rapid Testing
  • Venue Tracing
  • Data Management
  • Real-Time Exposure Alert Notifications
  • Custom Workplace Safety Protocol and Process Automation (XenonChex)
  • Role and Rule Based Workforce Management Software (XenonChex)
  • Digital Diagnostic Analysis, Dashboard Analytics, and Real-Time Results Review (iStoc)

Summit has brought together best in class providers while providing a unique approach to testing and leveraging technology to be as efficient as possible. As part of the partnership, Loop will be introducing both XenonChex and iStoc’s technology integration to our clients and partnerships. XenonChex automates the day-to-day tasks associated with ensuring business locations remain compliant and allowing oversight for management. XenonChex drives increased efficiency, improved performance, all while lowering cost. iStoc is the global leader in immediate diagnostics & analytics (IDA) of infectious diseases.

Loop Insights now has the ability to offer rapid test and lab results to any organization searching for a complete end-to-end COVID-19 solution across all 50 states. The combined product offering featuring Loop’s end-to-end solution will focus on stadiums, hospitals, long-term care facilities, construction sites, HR administration, campuses, airlines, cruise ships, resorts, and government buildings.

Summit’s COO Emily Jones, stated, “Loop Insights’ venue tracing platform is the perfect complement to our best in class service offering. Our goal is to bring to market the tools and technology to enable our community to return safely to work and our children to a safe learning environment. We have listened to our client’s needs and feel that combining our technologies will allow us to provide the best available resources. Loop enhances our ability to provide full data connectivity across all of our partners during this critical time.”

As recent headlines have shown, air lines are the first industry adopting rapid testing to reduce or eliminate the need for 14-day quarantine periods. The travel sector has realized that industries need to adopt technology that can allow them to safely reopen in order for economic recovery to start. Loop has been actively involved in many conversations with not only airports and airlines but has been busy adding it’s integrated lab testing applications to bolster existing NCAA contracts.

The NCAA comprises 1,268 American colleges and universities, representing a portion of the 19.9 million American students that attended college in 2019. In an effort to help reopen American classrooms and sports facilities, Loop Insights is working with Summit to offer its end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution. In 2019, the NCAA schools reported annual revenue of $18.9 billion, with $10.8 billion originating from its athletic department.

Lack of End-to-End COVID-19 Management Solutions Continues to Cause Event Cancellations

As first reported by CBS Sports Matt Norlander , athletic organizations, including ESPN have been unable to safely reopen sports leagues without a complete end-to-end COVID-19 solution due to inflexibility and complications around testing protocols.

“We’ve decided to redirect our efforts to be sure the teams have enough time to make other plans,” said Clint Overby, vice president of ESPN Events. “At the end of the day our bias was toward safety and making sure that what we pulled off was in the best interests of the sport. In the absence of those things, we decided we’re better off letting schools do their own thing.”

Loop Insights will continue to establish a highly scalable, safe, and secure process that NCAA schools and other organizations can adopt and rely on in order to safely host future tournaments and events with confidence. The company’s platform can integrate any third-party data, allowing its venue tracing platform to include various protocols or mandates set out by participants or facilities in order to provide a unified, end-to-end venue tracing solution. Together with Summit’s on-site lab and testing services, Loop Insights’ platform allows large organizations like the NCAA to reopen athletic and academic facilities by providing guests with rapid testing and real-time results.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “Our objective has always been to help our customers transform their business. We have the ability to integrate with any testing platform globally in order to deliver a true turn-key, end-to-end COVID-19 management solution. With Summit, we saw an opportunity to provide the infrastructure to implement safe venue tracing and testing protocols.”

NCAA Schools Provide Huge Growth Opportunity for Loop

Loop’s venue tracing platform generates revenue through a software as a service (SaaS) and a cost per user model, which will allow the NCAA to scale across campuses and facilities quickly. Loop Insights has also established a revenue-sharing model based on marketing and brand sponsorship dollars that are generated on the Loop platform for those in attendance or at home.

https://miro.medium.com/max/3150/1*f9msDHyceA_TbRM30jQhsw.png

Welcome to beyond the press release of production of AGORACOM which we speak the small cap executives right after they put up for news today we’ve got not 1 but 2 companies on Empower Clinics trade on the CSE and the stock symbol CBDT and the U. S. under EPWCF we got Steve McAuley of Empower Clinics for those who knew the story that’s gonna be a lot you can get a lot of market attention a vertically integrated health and wellness company their server database but 165,000 patients through clinics in the southwest US plus a telemedicine platform and a world class medical diagnostics lab more than just lip service they’ve out they’ve shown continued growth on patient revenue income side for Q. 4 Q. 1 Q. 2 the other company with us Loop Insights trades on the stock symbol M. T. R. X. and for friends the U. S RACMF a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence to drive real time insights enhance customer engagement automated contact tracing to the brick and mortar space again more just lip service there they’ve had tremendous success also just recently announced a great agreement would tell us we’re going to resell their their products all over Canada Vegas bubble were gonna be providing venue tracing a contact based solutions as well as are a number of other ones they rob believe what you guys have been able to do in the last 30 days. The headline we’re talk about today these companies have combined venue tracing with Covid-19 expertise to create the first ever travel bubble solution for the global travel industry that’s set to lose 3B, gentleman welcome to the show. George thanks for having us.  Guys this is a great press release in fact it’s almost unimaginable how big this is the 2 Canadian small cap covers gonna be able to tackle it before getting some the details you guys are 2 parts of this troubled solution so let’s walk through it briefly so people understand how this practically applies to the let’s start with the loop because you’re the front end facing part of the solution rob so maybe you can walk through that and they will move on to start a Steve on the Empower side with the Covid 19 testing part. Sure and and I’ll use the airline San Juan to Sam I guess with the cruise ships but. The challenge right now is our government needs to wake up I mean Dam they’re shutting down economies one of the only countries I’m not blaming Canada. But you know then to have no plan in place to eliminate the 14 day quarantine is absolutely absurd you know now there’s articles coming out that the Canadian government’s looking to buy a position. So I’m not really sure what agenda our government’s looking out for but it’s most definitely not about small business and that’s a fact so providing their lines the cruise ship the hospitality industry the ability to re open now is what Empower so in our case we have an end to end solution for tracing for payments for contactless engagement as we’ve talked about before when you add now the power of what Empower in the lab testing capabilities there is no need for 14 day quarantine. The minute that that you know person comes off the plane there’s ability now to have testing set out that complete security around all of the results and I have anonymity and what I mean by that is right now all of these news articles and I keep reading and on the on the radio on global too in other news at 90. It’s just a cry and it’s Hey we’ve had exposures come out by us and you know everyone just gets more anxious there’s no need for that with our platform the audience is 100 percent segmented and it’s only notified directly to your phone whether it’s an email a voice call whatever it may be there’s no need for this generalized red alert oh my goodness. Steve your side is the testing side which is easier obviously equally critical this because with loops are I’ve got on my phone it’s a wallet pass I can get on the plane I could be identified I can be alerted. Where does Empower fit in all this. Yeah this is this is a great partnership for us I mean we have been spending some time working with rob and his team going through the platform and understanding and I could tell you on this is state of the art technology on its effective but most importantly it’s simple and it’s it’s easy to use that’s functional so when we think about what our strengths are so think of the supply chain of testing so there’s the front and specimen collection however that might take place in and you’ve seen without prior releases you we are now you’re deep in our 4 stage national rollout of our testing platform but then the others great asset that we have in our books now is trying medical laboratory it has the capability of not only providing rapid tests are to be deployed at point of collection but also to do the back and PCR testing of which we can process for thousands of specimens per day right now that’s our current capacity so given the capacity that we have the scientific expertise having the ability to run the specimen collection at points all of us at that point all with the patients or the consumer might be and then combining with large testing capability we think putting the 2 yes assets together is it is a tremendous solution to help open up the economy and Steve you say simple and easy but that’s only because you made it simple and easy it’s not something very many companies can do don’t don’t sell yourself short that’s for sure. Rob I’m gonna go I’m gonna take a excerpt from the press release here because this is not just too small cap companies getting together and saying Hey let’s slop or solution together and see we can come up with a quote the company advises discussions are already underway with major airlines cruise ship operators and hotel rob can you give us a little bit of insight into what those conversations are looking like what the urgency is like and the acceptance of of this travel bubble solution. Sure it says its dynamic because there’s just so many so many challenges right now George we got boats that are traveling around the ocean empty you’ve got airlines that are struggling to gain confidence you’ve got people that are looking to go you know see family I mean I’ve I’ve got a buddy his you know down in the US is on his deathbed love not not nothing more to go see him but. 14 day quarantine. Like it’s it’s it’s asinine so the challenges are all everybody and it’s not just these these industries here the mom and pop grocery store and convenience store on the corner everyone has to remain remain open. Where where today in an article here with Steve is. To put a plan in place to present. Container again to the government to show them exactly now how we can reopen the private sector because right now putting your head in the sand sending everybody home for 2 weeks again in Toronto is doing anything that there’s still no good at all sell resulting in factors be there either protest mystery now people saying you were just not going to do it it is it’s nonsense and you know the next couple weeks here I think you’re absolutely imperative from government and to see someone stuff up Alberta is is starting to be some of that article when their health minister I mean they’re even more rougher shape so it’s not going anywhere putting that in the sense not solving anything so we’re providing them a turn key solution that starts that can be replicated over and over and over. So it’s not just airlines and cruise ship operators talk to but also governments that these discussions about it and if you don’t mind can you give us a sense for what those conversational like are they well advanced on the right the very beginning and what is what’s the what’s the excitement on the other side that you you guys may have a solution. Well I mean to be honest with you and of course I can’t say too much but that were way down the path we know that’s not a surprise to anyone you know they’re there the belief that the federal tracing apps gonna solve all the problems we know that’s not reality we all knew was gonna take a multitude of solutions and the private sector is going to play a big part of that I mean this this look back in time for decades and decades this is not a surprise to anyone so we’re way way down the path of the escalation of called it in phase 2 phase 3 depending upon how you’re talking to is here upon us and inevitable to grow look at the global numbers in the press release how many countries are shut down it’s not just here in Canada this is a global issue. On that note Steve there is also part of the press which word you guys make a joint statement says  empower believe the travel bubble combination of frequent testing robots in national trade platform provides the antenna production nested to spark a strong global economic recovery I mean you know that’s all I’m gonna play devil’s advocate say that almost seems too good to be true but the fact of matter is someone has to save the day and someone has to save the world at the end of the day and looks like it it may be you guys can you speak more to that as to you know whether that’s done almost intimidate you as the as the size of the problem or your confidence level that yeah we can actually solve this. It did the size of the problem is has incredible magnitude it doesn’t necessarily intimidate us all we know we can’t solve every country’s problems are but we know that we can definitely get to private sector public sector and bring this solution to the table as as rob and I were discussing you know how to put an implementation plan in place yeah we quickly realized that we’re both having independent conversations with small medium and large entities and if we could cross reference those opportunities and bring in more viable young cohesive solution together because you need contact tracing and testing you know one without the other isn’t a complete solution so again it was really relatively obvious for us that if we can find a way to really collaborate and work together we got a fighting chance to make a difference and to make an impact we think we can make a scalable impact on to this right now it’s about getting awareness out but I can tell you that I go right from this call into a large group that owns elder care facilities in all the southwest United States there are thousands of patients and their families that are impacted just by this one conversation that I’m having rocks having the same conversations with large organizations like U. N. C. to weigh in and the tech bubble is coming up and will be on the bubble is coming up in Las Vegas we’ve already been in discussions with cruise lines we know that rob’s been in discussions with cruise lines so as your rob used the word dynamic a little bit earlier that’s what it’s like for us right now it’s it’s it’s kind of wild and dynamic and crazy but we’ve got a solution that we believe is extremely viable and is going to make an impact to getting this economy back up and running Hey rob is a tiny perfect here because if you guys try to you know do. This 6 months ago you would have had tell us third party validation the Vegas bubble for the NC double a the university of Houston Steve would have had the time to show Q. 4 Q. one Q. 2 growth the acquisition of this massive lab in Dallas Texas right in the heart of the medical world there so when you’re having these conversations how much does your success with some of these names come into play because I got assume that’s very important  just can’t come along so we got a solution even if we have it. This that faith in conference might not be there but you guys have it because of you’ve got third party validation. What is time is everything in business and life and it’s much like our ticker symbol people always ask me what is matrix as evidence the watch the movie everything always happens for a reason and you know let’s say 7 not that I’m taking credit for you know cold it but its foresight around digital transformation and you know what without a transformative solution or future proof roadmap we’re gonna be hung out here high and dry for decades to come the financial burden that this is put on by the Canadian population areas it’s it’s still it’s sickening and then out there’s no need to go hire more people throw more money at it this is what artificial intelligence and automation is about. Is about machine learning it’s about managing these processes like we build here was Steve. It it’s it’s it’s a little frustrating they can tell their yeah I’d like to tell you are we all are on I’m glad yeah I think it right it is and you know right now is the perfect timing and like I said when. When when we get in these conversations we deliver and at the end of the day you know there’s a a global problem anyone just punching Covid-19 revolt protest whatever maybe I mean you see videos of you know cities burning burned down again I mean it’s it’s it’s rather alarming at its time here that groups like Empower and Lop come together and deliver something that’s. Black and white in front of them here we go Steve is it fair to say that in phase one. We’ll put their faith in government to do the right things and help us get through all this but now in phase 2 are you hearing from you know you are you said useful to cruise ship operates for example and many other major film studios I mean you you’re you’re you you’ve already announced testing for major film studio we already know that is it safe to say that enterprise is much more willing now in fact almost demanding that you guys come forth with the solution because they’ve lost the faith in government. Well I mean I think to keep in mind here the markets you know my current law on major markets are in the US and the US are doesn’t have a cohesive federal strategy to address these issues that we’re talking about right now even at the state level state by state their success or failures very dramatically but there is one consistency in the United States in all states the numbers are out of control again and they’re not getting worse they’re not getting better getting much worse for sure there is our first region there is dissent I’m at all levels and the other thing is happening now in the U. S. this is becoming a legal matter you know we see our society the U. S. as more litigious than perhaps we see back home here to Canada all but we’re we’re seeing and we’re hearing not and to go but we have have not see this going on is that employers are getting sued by employees if that employer is not demonstrating that they’re doing all they can to provide protect or provide health and safety not only for employees but for customers and vendors so you’ve got industries now that are all putting regulation and so if you take film and television you’ve got the screen actor’s guild who are dictating policy if you look at the cruise ship industry the our cruise line international H. R. association are established policies for cruise lines going forward which say all crew staff and passengers must produce a negative coping 19 task 5 days before boarding or they will not be able to board and indeed a very comprehensive contact tracing solution just to pull it all together make it work so is becoming regulated now whether. Federal government’s comment or state governments come in is almost irrelevant at NY times the big industries are now legislating themselves to bring these solutions to market. Hey Rob any decision like this still comes down ROI no matter what money still matters at the end of the day we know the bad though the losses are massive you gave in to you do you get anything stop the other day off on a call about just how much the Ontario or the Canadian government was losing from foreign students not being able to be here talk a little bit to that if you don’t mind and then does that mean does that give you guys pricing power down today because of the losses are so massive known to be bickering over cost they just want a solution to get back to business. Well most definitely I mean no matter what angle you look at it whether it’s from a federal government standpoint. The impact by not having students foreign students attending school in Canada this year will surpass 1B so just think about not just that’s just foreign students. Looking to still reside in Canada to go to university. The numbers are absolutely staggering. Sell side you know I said to you Hey George I can make your headache go away instantly across on $1000000 and look at the numbers you’ve got last. I mean. You know what is some of what is the what is the value that’s what someone’s willing to pay. And right now we’re we’re in a very strong position. And you know it’s the same side of it my my call before this one was one of the major universities in in the south we’re at 50 percent capacity for the ball season coming up. We have very limited revenue now because of it they’re all not just looking for today George in the US where we’re seeing these large enterprise organizations are looking for 2021-2022. 3 year roadmap because they understand this is not going anywhere just like 911 changed the way security and travel covid pandemic right now is forcing digital ID digital wallets and the complete end to end solution so you’re gonna see testing. I guarantee you you mark my words you will see testing in every major airport in our country in the next 6 months to one year. Do you think you guys play a major role in that Steve and rob do you guys think that you know if you’re able if you got this travel bubble that did you guys be a big part of that well I think part of it and once again I think that that’s the reason easy answer yes we’re going to be a part of this for sure you know the the the volume and scale this is substantial and to the extent that we can you know from a business perspective in our partnership I gain some of that market share then I think people are going to quickly realized that we have that capability we have the operational skill set we have the sciences and the diagnostic testing capability and we have an elegance A. I. driven solution for contact tracing so I definitely think that we can play a role in that part of it but as we’ve been discussing here there are so many large assets not for us to to talk about you know we together you know we are already you know independently talking to your division one universities and colleges in the states and their athletic programs you know some of these big division one colleges you know they have their generate in excess of $1B U. S. on their programs per year so that is a significant revenue that has been lost and they’re not going to regain it that’s read on walks so now is as we’re rob says. How are they going to plan to resolve this business problem that they have in years ahead there to figure out how to regain it in a safe and healthy manner again for all of the people who are in their system your players and coaches and staff but also the fans and without the fans attending then they really can’t generate the revenue streams that they they normally expect. Jets jets I know you both have I mean you’ve done it everyone a great service here by jumping on the middle day you both have hard stops in 2 minutes which is great because you speak to potential customers so rob maybe I’ll ask you is it is it safe to assume that you know you can expect to see some kind of uptake commercialization coming out of this. In the near future or is it still going to be up a long sales cycle in order to get this done. No I I think it’s it’s it’s very near I mean that. The the the thing that we’ve built here George this can be replicated in every city across the world I mean it’s it’s where our data platform that can connect to any lab testing group globally so doesn’t matter which government doesn’t matter it’s private sector independent whatever maybe and so now this is something like this said here that we are we see great opportunity and we’re going after. There’s so much more we could talk about we’re pretty sure the fact the took out your 20 minutes of your time you know the day congratulations.  Pretty soon their future goes sounds like you’ve already got irons in the fire and not your some shareholder point of view but from a system point of view thanks to you guys have done so far and if you can really you know make this happen then you’re gonna be helping out everybody not just financial mental health stress anxiety all that so good luck to you guys and thanks for joining us right thank you George .  you’ve been watching Steve McAauley of  Empower clinics trades on the CSE and the stock symbol CBDT and for a friends of the US under EPWCF. likewise you been watching Rob Anson of Loop Insights trades of TSX venture exchange of the stock symbol MTRX go watch the matrix if you haven’t you can answer the question and for friends the U.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global economy but perhaps no industry has suffered worse than the travel industry which could suffer an unfathomable loss of $US 3.3 TRILLION (Not A Typo) if it can’t find a practical solution to replace the shut down and / or quarantine measures mandated around the world.  Specifically, as of today, travel restrictions by country are as follows: 

  • 58 countries are completely closed
  • 124 countries are partially open with MANDATORY quarantine upon arrival

Unlike the restaurant business which can mitigate losses through alternative models such as take-out, delivery and outdoor patios, the travel industry has no mitigation solutions.  Countries are either shut down or implementing such strict quarantine requirements that they might as well be shut down.  The only solution is a complete solution that combines venue tracing, contact tracing and rapid testing to give government, airlines and cruise ships the comfort they need to know that travellers are not spreading COVID-19 to each other, or to other countries. 

Loop Insights CEO, Rob Anson confirmed this when he said:

“We have heard from stakeholders in the entertainment, travel, and hospitality industries that have stressed the importance of an end-to-end integrated solution capable of protecting employees and customers to facilitate a safe economic recovery.”

ENTER THE “TRAVEL BUBBLE”

Earlier today, Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) and Loop Insights (MTRX:TSXV) announced they have combined forces to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.  More than just lip service, each company brings a strong recent track record of success in their respective parts of the bubble as follows:

LOOP INSIGHTS

As the front facing part of the Travel Bubble solution, Loop Insights is a powerful Artificial Intelligence company whose industry leading venue tracing has gained significant traction towards reopening the tourism, hospitality and entertainment industries in the United States with the likes of University of Houston and the NCAA Basketball #VegasBubble, as well as, recently being recognized by TELUS as one of the most advanced IoT solutions in the world for their customers.

EMPOWER CLINICS

Empower’s rapid antigen and antibody tests produce results in only 15 minutes, providing airlines, cruise ships and the 182 countries currently in full or partial shutdown with the safety and security necessary to fully reopen their borders to international travel. Moreover, Empower’s KAI Medical Laboratory is a high-complexity accredited laboratory that provides reliable and accurate testing solutions to enterprise level clients, including the gold standard COVID-19 RT-PCR testing  with the capacity to process 4,000 tests per day. Empower recently announced a deal to provide a major film and television studio with 1,000 such tests.

Together, the two companies believe the Travel Bubble combination of frequent testing and a robust international tracing platform provides the end-to-end protection necessary to spark a strong global economic recovery.

Sounds too good to be true?  Both companies still have to execute but they advise that advanced discussions are already underway with major airlines, cruise ship companies and hotel operators.

  • Partnership to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications, and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.
  • Together, Loop and Empower have created a system built on the pillars of:
  • Venue tracing
  • Frequent testing with rapid results
  • Real-time reporting to ensure the travel bubble provides end-to-end protection

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 19, 2020 — 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 contact tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce a partnership with Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) (EPWCF:OTC) (8EC:FRA) to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications, and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.

TRAVEL BUBBLE SOLUTION SOLVES CURRENT QUARANTINE REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE SHUTTING DOWN INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, mandatory 14 day quarantine periods, and the lack of any travel bubble solutions that could reliably track and mitigate the global spread of the virus by plane or cruise ship, countries have been forced to take drastic measures that are leading to significant damage of the global travel industry.

Specifically, as of today, travel restrictions by country are as follows:

  • 58 countries are completely closed
  • 124 countries are partially open with MANDATORY quarantine upon arrival

Together, Loop and Empower have created a system built on the pillars of:

  • Venue tracing
  • Frequent testing with rapid results
  • Real-time reporting to ensure the travel bubble provides end-to-end protection

Empower’s rapid antigen and antibody tests produce results in only 15 minutes, providing airlines, cruise ships, and the 182 countries currently in full or partial shutdown with the safety and security necessary to reopen their borders to international travel fully.

Moreover, Empower owns KAI Medical Laboratory, a high-complexity CLIA and COLA accredited laboratory that provides reliable and accurate testing solutions to enterprise level clients, hospitals, medical clinics, pharmacies, and employer groups.

KAI has taken an active role in COVID-19 testing, battling the pandemic through RT-PCR testing and serology testing with the capacity to process 4,000 RT-PCR test specimens per day. COVID-19 RT-PCR testing is the gold standard due to its high degree of accuracy and will play an important role in the Travel Bubble solution.

As the front-facing part of the Travel Bubble solution, Loop Insights is a powerful Artificial Intelligence company whose industry-leading venue tracing has gained significant traction towards reopening the tourism, hospitality, and entertainment industries in the United States with the likes of University of Houston and the NCAA Basketball #VegasBubble, as well as, recently being recognized by TELUS as one of the most advanced IoT solutions in the world for their customers.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “We have heard from stakeholders in the entertainment, travel, and hospitality industries that have stressed the importance of an end-to-end integrated solution capable of protecting employees and customers to facilitate a safe economic recovery. In partnership with Empower’s rapid testing technology, Loop has established a comprehensive solution capable of establishing a travel bubble and reopening a significant portion of the global economy.”

Steven McAuley, Chairman and CEO of Empower Clinics, stated: “As we expand our efforts on the Get Back To Work testing initiative, it has become apparent that businesses of all types, large or small, private or public sector require not only fast and accurate COVID-19 testing, but also a comprehensive solution for contact tracing. Establishing a partnership with Loop, working with the RT-PCR and rapid testing capabilities of Kai Medical, allows our companies together to establish a safe and viable economic recovery solution.”

AIR CANADA ADVOCATES FOR TEST-BASED APPROACH AND DROPPING 14-DAY MANDATORY QUARANTINE
The Travel Bubble solution comes at a time when both major industry participants and economic experts are calling for solutions beyond quarantining to reopen industries and stave off economic collapse.

On October 6th, Air Canada (AC:TSX) (ACDVF:OTCQX) called for increased testing in lieu of mandatory quarantine periods,

We believe that a test-based strategy may be a safe alternative to the 14-day quarantine.”

On October 15, 2020 a panel of Canadian economists proclaimed the “economy must remain open despite second wave” or suffer the very likely outcome of bankruptcies and business closures “with hospitality, travel and tourism set for the harshest impact.”

By providing testing, tracking, and real-time reporting, Loop and Empower have created a safe and secure Travel Bubble solution to allow enterprise level businesses to return to full operations, particularly those in the hospitality, travel, and live entertainment industries.

$3.3 TRILLION IN LOSSES FOR GLOBAL TOURISM INDUSTRY

Without a solution to replace the drastic travel measures currently in place around the world, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) reported that COVID-19 may cost the world tourism sector losses of US$ 3.3 trillion.

In Canada alone, according to Statista, the Canadian tourism industry contributed close to $40 billion to the economy in 2019. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating consequences for the industry.

Loop and Empower believe the Travel Bubble combination of frequent testing and a robust international tracing platform provides the end-to-end protection necessary to spark a strong global economic recovery.

S. obviously the position with Amazon and APN network was a big part of these you know fortune 600 introductions and they bring the credibility as you know we are young company and people just learning now you looking sites really is you know from a Canadian perspective now having our largest telco telus plan associated to the products and marketing and opening the doors it is game changing for loop and and shareholders most definitely and I want to make sure people understand the magnitude of this it could even of the settle headline says accepted to Telus IoT. marketplace this is centrally is for the whole basket everything Luke does tell this is not gonna be selling to their customers across the country. Yes is the same before we’ve got our our full B. device and our data analytics insights component are automated marking in the pilot that’s ongoing right now and doing extremely well as we come to wrap that up here next month. You know the contact tracing venue tracing is obviously front center I mean we’re a little more fortunate out here in BC but these calls now with everything being shut down again and closing the economy that’s not an option and you know it is going to have to re open here and Lucas transformative gateway and it is in our conversations with the government level now that’s exactly what it’s about is not just a band aid we’ve captured huge interest now the provincial and federal level based upon our ability to apply the data across a multitude of different touch points and now whether it’s health care whether it’s the contact tracing federal for you know whether it’s more vehicle branch our ability to tie it all together is what’s putting us in these positions and very proud excited out tell us a wave and then the live like when making key interactions to us then for everyone at home what I love so much about what Luke does is it’s not just contact tracing it’s not just some marketing enhancement the contact tracing is almost you know the first door and you know we all have to have that but then while it’s there loop uses that to help enhance your retailers government any form of business enterprise to then further transact with me and and not just transactional but Hey George likes this artificial intelligence picking up this with George like let’s off from this so it’s all close down which means greater safety for everybody and greater revenue for the venue’s government businesses that that need it let’s talk about tell us now rob. Why did you choose tell us or that the child was chose you ought you know how to white white tell us a loop. What is tell us is obviously is important to us for many reasons I have a family history my godfather was actually former presencia a BC tel which was acquired you as part of the deal will tell us back then so it’s very interesting time from that aspect in one of our board members it was key in implementing this tell us introduction Peter green. Course with his history would tell us is unparalleled so it was a no brainer for us on many different levels and as we talked about the innovation what Luke brings to the table and transcending IoT. space in itself are offering a new exciting product it’s multi faceted and unparalleled in the current IT space was as we see now they’ve they’ve been quite excited about it and relationship continues to grow and grow and is let’s get more exciting yeah look I’ve been doing this for 20 years it’s a very rare when a small cap company gets one deal of any kind does with a global with a national powerhouse and and again I’m not a monster company like tell us one let alone 2 and moving the relationship forward what do you think and I you have yet to gas and and maybe from your conversation tell us what’s driving it from their side to be parting with loops so quickly moving forward is that because they’re seeing the economy shutting down business shutting down everything shutting down and they know that they need a solution now to get out to their customers you think that’s the big driver here well part of it George I mean what we do is completely relevant today right course did the other side of it though it is telling us is always looking and reading when it comes to innovation and providing value to their business customers so it it’s it’s good to win win that alternately providing value solving problems for their customers and further entrenching yeah the tallest Brandon product offering and terming sticky. A new line revenues for them as well to their shareholders and more importantly right now today is going to be putting our name and stab together on some of these huge venue tracing opportunities but some very significant players. Tell us didn’t just hand this to you though obviously you know in the small cap world we know the gravity of the loop’s technology and solutions and we’ve seen the names university of Houston all on and on so we won’t go through all those but I’m sure Luke yeah we’re sold out of the loop I had to but tell us how to make a jump through some hoops so what was it like in order to get you know the relationship to this to this level because they they’ve got privacy concerns I got all sorts of concerns what how rigorous was it to get to this point. It is about 7 months you know data privacy security product all of all of the audits here is a big deal and much like went through the Amazon as well of course but you know at the end of the day you know we’ve architected our solution in a manner that checks all the boxes and now from a health standpoint in something other projects and events that are about to unfold here puts us in a tremendous opportunity and consistent into other opportunities that are in verticals that’s and I never even thought of. So just really speaks to the agility of the solution and providing value and relevancy to the loop shareholders of course and tell us as long. I commend tell us for kind of being first to the table because it usually one massive hurdle for George com software to get it to get on the table is something who else is using you and say well nobody you be the first and nobody wants to be the first tells dad hats off to them but now if there’s one thing I know about that world the the that enterprise world as they play follow the leader a lot what kind of example do you think this relationship brings to I know it I mean you announced already that you could talk to 2 major telecoms again 2 major telecoms U. S. what does this do for advancing all the relationships that need that that you’ve been managing for the last few months yeah you’re you’re right no no one wants to be first that is the biggest the biggest challenge by by far in in the beginning and I’m extremely appreciative for tell us and what they’ve done hi Andrew Turner played a big part of it their director striding items he you know it it is for site to see where we can take can enhance what they have today extremely appreciative for that what it’s done is it’s just that it’s brought credibility there’s a lot of eyeballs now waiting to see where we go outside of our pilots where now this agreement takes it about a couple calls already from some of the others that we’ve previously spoken with and it’s kind of a formal if you will right everyone to your point follow the leader they are very much like sheep and that’s what was exciting to me that tell us is so innovative and looking to transcend IT space and Michael cera and all of their team there is tremendous leadership and I’m very proud to be part of that and I got to read you broadband or Turner so I just kind of scroll down on the press release here and I’ve got to read this quote because it’s one thing for Lupin agora com. To do a a partnership together to announce partnership and you say great things about me and I said great things about you we expect that you know these massive companies like tell us they don’t they don’t say things lightly 9 they’re they’re not in the business of of of just pumping your tyres just because so I want to read this this Amanda Turner tells VP of strategic operations by it doesn’t get much better than that he said by partnering with innovative and leading I’ll T. development company such as loop were insuring that our customers have access some of the most advanced I OT. business solutions in the world I mean I know how cool and calm you are and how call for you’ve been in your technology from day one yeah we met and well before that obviously but does that still give you goosebumps is still make you kind of you know. Bench yourself when you hear something like that from the likes of Dallas. He yeah for sure I mean it’s it’s you know it’s it’s nice to hear and I mean I don’t do this for compliments you know this is an exciting but it is 1 of many deals that were working on at this size and magnitude and larger quite honestly so for me it’s all about and even process hi George you know it’s another piece of the puzzle and road map in it all out patient switch so as I’m getting older is something I’ve learned and that these things take time and of course you know a lot of investors expect everything overnight but you know put a side by side of many small cap stock the 2 year you know in the trading history and look into what we brought to the table our future is extremely bright well generally speaking you’re right investors from apple down to the tiniest micro cap want things to happen quickly I gotta tell ya I don’t know of anyone that’s complaining about loop though because the the speed that you guys been going or in 2020 I don’t think there’s anybody complaining in fact there by lot of people saying holy smokes get out how do we figure this fast yeah we’re just getting started I mean we we have an incredibly talented team you know I I’ve got some of the greatest tac engineers you know in the world clearly. This here in our front in our marketing team is is brilliant and and our sales in a recent edition of my Cannavaro RSVP now and you know down in the US is opening doors like no tomorrow you know we all we all work is is one and it truly is a team and family so what would be known students are you know it’s it’s pretty exciting to see what we’ve accomplished in a very short time but I mean we’re we’re just you know we kind of went from crawl to walk. We’re still in call mode you know we’re position now with 2021 it’s gonna be a lot of fun once we get to jogging so. Walter this much out here it looks like you’re full on Usain bolt’s sprinting all right so for for all and that’s our perception out here because the small cap world we don’t see many companies move this fast on the business side and it’s interesting to hear you say you’re still a crawl sent you saying we’re still the first anywhere just warming up. Why it is because I mean you know when you do partnerships like with NC double a and yes P. N. N. Japanese groups I mean it is just starting to evolve I mean then the pandemic you know there there’s no playbook here George right now this is all ad hoc an on the fly and it speaks volumes to what we are able to put together with you know Amazon web services and our tech team here to to create something literally overnight that now is having such an impact notice here in Canada but in the US it is it is I mentioned before it’s very difficult to you know I play cross border and you know just little company in Vancouver Canada is not transcending and providing these solutions to solve some of the largest players in the game. That’s what excites me. So here we are we’ve just started Q. 4 centrally right we’ve just started Q. 4 and you’ve announced the other kind of news that most couples would be envious of if they’re not if they announce it 12 months from now you know so you’re moving fast what’s the future road map with tell us because this is now this is a relation to class of number 2 and then maybe you know what’s the road map look at I’m not gonna ask for next 12 months that’s just to grab one of the next 3 to 6 months look like in terms of you know what you’re going after. Yeah health care is is huge part of it and it’s something that you know I haven’t spoke about before but it is something we’ve been working on hi there some very exciting opportunities that we’ve been presented with here in Canada and and the U.
