VIDEO – TELUS Upgrading Partnership With Loop Insights $MTRX.ca $RACMF To Direct Reseller Sends Strong Message To Loop Telco Prospects Around The World $AT.ca $QTRH.ca $SNSR $BSQR $PTS.ca

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? 

Watch this great interview with Loop CEO Rob Anson.

A “Game Changer” Strategic Alliance To Transform The Retail Sector

“NielsenIQ’s market leading fast-moving consumer goods coverage and Loop’s transformative artificial intelligence solutions present opportunities for collaboration and business development across channels.  Retailers will benefit from an enhanced understanding of consumer behavior, thereby boosting personalization, targeting and activation initiatives through the joint power of NielsenIQ and Loop.” 

More than just lip service, NielsenIQ is the leader in providing the most complete, unbiased view of consumer behavior, globally. Powered by a ground-breaking consumer data platform and fueled by rich analytic capabilities, NielsenIQ enables decision-making for the world’s leading consumer goods companies and retailers.
In short, NielsenIQ measures every consumer transaction to deliver the knowledge that every business needs to drive growth.

If you thought that was powerful, the combination of Loop Insights means that knowledge will be delivered in real-time, something NielsenIQ VP Richard Lee says doesn’t exist in the market today.

“The scope, gravity and validation of this agreement with NielsenIQ represent an incredible milestone for Loop and its shareholders.  NielsenIQ is the global leader when it comes to measurement and data analytics, as well as providing the most complete and trusted view of the market for leading CPG brands and retailers. In establishing this alliance, Loop is now on a path to achieve global enterprise scale, and has firmly put a stake in the ground as an emerging disruptive player in the world of retail data aggregation and analytics.”

  • CRL achieved an oversubscribed private placement, recruited a fresh core executive team, and announcing significant corporate partners
  • “The last 90 days has been like training for a marathon,” said Jean-Charles Phaneuf, who came on board as CEO on January 12, 2021.

VANCOUVER, BC, April 14, 2021 /CNW/ – After achieving an oversubscribed private placement with a new strategic set of investors, recruiting a fresh core executive team and announcing significant corporate partners, Carl Data Solutions Inc.  (CSE: CRL) (FSE: 7C5) (OTC: CDTAF) (“Carl Data Solutions”) is poised for global growth as a leading developer of Big-Data-as-a-Service (“BDaaS”) and Industrial Internet of Things (“IIoT”) solutions.

Carl Data Solutions is at the nexus of what Deloitte Global calls “The Big Four” of Industry 4.0 technologies: Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data/Analytics and Cloud Infrastructure.  It provides industry and government customers with solutions that collect, cleanse, organize, store and analyze time-series data in mission-critical applications like Environmental Monitoring as a Service (“EMaaS”).  Mastering this data allows those customers to not only avoid costly downtime in their large-scale operations, but also to take advantage of predictive and prescriptive analytics on processes or forecasted events to optimize outcomes or mitigate risks.

“The last 90 days has been like training for a marathon,” said Jean-Charles Phaneuf, who came on board as CEO on January 12, 2021.  “We announced an oversubscribed Private Placement of $5,601,288, a $2,000,000 Line of Credit, $250,000 in Convertible Debentures, and converted $1,491,000 of corporate debt.  Then we hired new senior executives in business development, corporate marketing, technical operations, and product management.”

  1. Smart IoT Technologies Inc.: a strategic partnership to provide high-quality sensors used in conjunction with Carl Data Solutions’ existing IIoT technology to provide EMaaS to new and existing customers.
  2. Think Quality Assurance Services Inc. (“Think-QA”): a strategic partnership to expand Carl Data Solutions’ role in the Renewable Energy sector by providing value-added services to Think-QA’s existing solar and wind farm customers.  Carl Data Solutions will be providing machine learning with predictive and prescriptive analytics to reduce maintenance costs and maximize electricity production.

“Now we’re ready to run at peak performance,” stated Mr. Phaneuf.  Carl Data Solutions is positioned to drive future growth based on three key goals:

  1. Increase the use of Carl Data Solutions’ Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence capabilities within current products and services.  The aim is to increase cross sell and upsell opportunities with existing market segments comprised of Water, Sewage, Solid Waste Management and EMaaS.
  2. Expand current solutions to Smart Cities by selecting early adopters of Internet of Things (IoT), time-series data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.  Leverage Carl Data Solutions’ current customer base of over 100 cities to attain this goal.
  3. Expand current solutions to new Smart Connected Spaces by building strategic partnerships in the IIoT sector.

Phaneuf emphasized that all new market opportunities for Carl Data Solutions will undergo a disciplined evaluation process that ensures maximum profitability.

“I’m very pleased to report that after 90 days, we are on track and aligned with the growth plan we laid out,” he stated.  “In essence, our short-term objective was to implement the Carl Data Solutions cornerstones: finance, people, partners and processes that we can build upon.  Going forward, we can focus on growth, create advanced solutions for our customers and enhanced value for our shareholders.”

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.”

Loop Insights $MTRX $RACMF Appointed Steward of Sovrin Foundation, Offering World’s First Blockchain-backed Digital Wallet Pass Identity Platform $QTRH.ca $SNSR $BSQR $PTS.ca

  • Announced the Company has joined the Sovrin Foundation, an open-source, open-standards technology platform for digital identity.
  • Built on a public blockchain, the Sovrin Ledger protects personal information while giving control of personal data back to the individuals.
  • Loop joins over 70 leading tech organizations around the world including Cisco, T-Mobile and NEC that have committed computing power and resources to strengthen the Sovrin Network.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 05, 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 and enhanced customer engagement to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce the Company has joined the Sovrin Foundation, an open-source, open-standards technology platform for digital identity. Built on a public blockchain, the Sovrin Ledger protects personal information while giving control of personal data back to the individuals. Loop joins over 70 leading tech organizations around the world including Cisco, T-Mobile and NEC that have committed computing power and resources to strengthen the Sovrin Network.

INTEGRATION WITH SOVRIN FOUNDATION WILL ENHANCE LOOP’S WALLET PASS THROUGH IMPROVED SECURITY, PRIVACY, AND INTEROPERABILITY WITH MAJOR TECH LEADERS

Loop Insights currently issues credentials through the native mobile wallet that is embedded in Apple iOS and Google Android smartphones, which has been leveraged by Passcreator to offer a secure and easy-to-use platform. However, this data can be difficult for third parties to verify.

On January 12, 2021 Loop Insights finalized its acquisition of Passcreator to provide Loop with complete control over Passcreator and its wallet pass platform. By joining the Sovrin Foundation, the credentials that Loop Insights issues can be fully verified by any third party, allowing organizations to check them against Sovrin’s independent public blockchain. This integration is expected to greatly enhance the existing security and privacy of personal information that is encrypted and secured on Loop’s wallet pass platform, originally created by Passcreator.

By validating our issuance and data on the public Sovrin Ledger, Loop will greatly expand the interoperability of its mobile wallet passes, which can now be validated by any organization or individual. The security of the Sovrin Ledger will also enable users to share individual pieces of information with third parties without revealing their entire personal identity.

As Loop Insights is a data company that is fully committed to improving the security and integrity of personal information, it has become clear that public blockchain technologies will be critical to the security and privacy of personal information moving forward. Loop Insights is excited to be driving this shift together with Sovrin and the many organizations dedicated to enhancing the security, functionality, and customer experience of mobile wallet passes.

Loop Insights’ goal is to architect and launch a platform that provides seamless interoperable data connectivity for physical venue and retail operators. With the addition of supportive blockchain verification, the Company is now able to issue verified digital wallet credentials through the native wallet in each and every smartphone.

As countries look to reopen the economy and to provide transformative future-proofed solutions, Loop Insights is working to provide a seamless, secure, and simple user experience through its Wallet pass platform. The Company has recognized the overwhelming number of third-party applications on the market today and therefore anticipates the native wallets found on Apple and Google smartphones will become dominant platforms.

Chris Raczkowski, Chair of the Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees stated:
“The Sovrin Foundation is very excited to welcome Loop Insights as the newest Steward of the Sovrin Ledger. The innovative Loop Insights team will strengthen the Sovrin network moving forward as we continue to offer secure and privacy-preserving digital identities for all.”
