On December 3rd 2020, Loop Insights announced “The launch of a second product into the TELUS (T:TSX; TU:NYSE)  IoT Marketplace for national sales and marketing To TELUS Business Customers.”   

This came less than 50 days after Loop announced the acceptance of its first product into the TELUS IoT Marketplace.  

To say the partnership between Loop Insights and one of Canada’s largest telecommunications companies ($15.5 billion in annual revenue in 2020 and 16 million customer connections) was an understatement. 

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL 

Earlier today Loop announced TELUS Upgrades Loop Insight Partnership Status From IoT Marketplace To Direct Reseller In Multi-Year Agreement. TELUS To Directly Resell Loop Solutions As A TELUS Product To National Business Customers. Though this last step took over 6 months, it is also the biggest possible step placing Loop Insights at a pinnacle that very few small cap companies ever see. 

How big is this partnership upgrade with TELUS and what does it mean for both domestic business and global partnerships?

More than just lip service clients include:

The initial scalable unit will process enough power to run up to 200 cryptocurrency mining machines. The energy generated is environmentally friendly, and the system will be self-sustainable.

This technology reduces waste currently filling landfills, a prevalent cause of greenhouse gas emissions containing methane that is more harmful than CO2.

What did Cameron Chell, Chairman of CurrencyWorks have to say?

“Crypto mining can be incredibly profitable if you can eliminate or minimize the energy costs in the mining process, while at the same time through these policies and best practices reduce the need for landfills and GHG, providing cleaner air and water, conservation of local biodiversity, sustainable energy development and green jobs.  CurrencyWorks Zer00 Crypto operations will help to develop a sustainable way of minimizing MSW and using that energy to mine for crypto.”

Loop Insights $MTRX $RACMF enters the £4.5 billion UK forecourt sector through its partnership with Suresite Group $QTRH.ca $SNSR $BSQR $PTS.ca

Forecourt operators to get access to real-time data from any point-of-sale through Loop’s IoT device

  • Announces a new Proof of Concept (PoC) with Suresite Group
  • The cooperation will see selected Suresite retail locations take advantage of Loop’s IoT Fobi device and Insights platform

LONDON and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 14, 2021 — Loop Insights (MTRX:TSXV; RACMF:OTCQB), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence for the brick and mortar space, announces a new Proof of Concept (PoC) with Suresite Group. The cooperation will see selected Suresite retail locations take advantage of Loop’s IoT Fobi device and Insights platform.

Loop Insights is growing its UK retail presence

According to KPMG , the UK’s forecourt or gas station convenience store sector generates approximately £4.5 billion in annual revenue. Loop’s latest agreement with Suresite represents its entry into the UK’s retail energy sectors, as part of wider business development efforts in the UK.

The changing trends of forecourt retail

Suresite ’s UK data of card payment transactions and spend show that in the last 12 months, there has been less demand for fuel with people unable to travel due to local and national lockdowns. Yet these travel restrictions have also led to a growth in non-fuel retail with customers choosing to carry out their grocery shopping locally at nearby fuel stations, looking to fulfil multiple purposes in a single trip with an increased appetite for cashless transactions. With the constantly changing trends and challenges brought by the pandemic, data insights are now more important for forecourt retail than ever.

Loop’s Fobi is an IoT device working with an AI-powered retail analytics platform that allows retailers unprecedented access to real-time transaction data from any point-of-sale (POS) – online, in-store, and across multiple properties.

During the PoC, Loop Insights will implement its Fobi device and Insights AI-powered analytics platform across numerous Suresite client locations. This will provide Suresite, and more importantly, its clients who operate leading fuel and convenience brands, with powerful, actionable data capabilities needed to deliver informed loyalty experience and drive operational efficiencies. Suresite’s forecourt client market currently includes major brands such as Harvest Energy, Gulf, Jet, and others.

Through services such as our real-time, data-driven fuel monitoring solution, Suresite understands that retailers need data to be delivered in real-time to be able to maximise revenue and wallet-share. For the retailer, it’s about understanding the shopping basket breakdown item by item, who made the purchase, and how. Or having the ability to see how a special promotion is performing in real time so adjustments can be made if needed. This is why Suresite has partnered with Loop Insights, to help our clients improve their business decisions based on real-time, actionable insights,” explains Eva Jones, Head of Product Development and Innovation at Suresite.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “Our latest Proof of Concept agreement with Suresite is additional proof that our Fobi device combined with our AI-powered Insights platform serves an immediate, data driven need in the convenience and fuel sectors. Recent announcements with Sobeys in grocery, and now Suresite in convenience and fuel – two of the largest retail sectors in the world – serve notice that Loop and its solutions are fit-for-purpose in today’s data-first world. We anticipate this PoC will be another massive success for both Loop and Suresite as we continue to demonstrate the power of Loop’s Insights platform no matter the industry or country.”

Suresite CEO Steve Hoban added: “We understand the power of insight to help our clients improve their offer, sales and profit. We are excited to partner with Loop and are looking forward to the results of our trials. Our aim is to continue to add value to our clients and be able to enrich our data to provide them with insights that help them grow.”
