DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 1, 2017) - The CHRON Organization, Inc. (OTC PINK: CHRO), announced today that it has launched its commercial services division under its wholly owned subsidiary Zen Technologies, Inc. (Zen). The Zen Commercial Services initiative has been in a pre-launch mode over the past three weeks; however, the Company is pleased to announce that it has already executed engagement contracts with 10 commercial clients. The Company is forecasting to enroll approximately 30 to 40 commercial clients during the first quarter of 2017 as part of the pre-launch phase.
Zen's commercial offering is a sophisticated blend of smart controls, security and energy conservation technologies. In addition to its suite of commercial solutions, Zen is also pleased to announce a cutting-edge payment option called the Zero-Cost Program™. The Zero-Cost Program™ allows clients to take full advantage of Zen's commercial offering, while not incurring any new out-of-pocket expenses. This is accomplished via a performance-based services contract, whereby Zen is guaranteeing savings for the customer.
"Commercial, industrial and municipal customers can now implement the latest in smart controls and energy conservation technologies, while also making improvements to their bottom line," CHRON's Chairman, Byron Young, said.
The Zero-Cost Program™ has provided a way for Zen to distinguish itself from all of its competitors, whether that be alarm/security companies, automation companies, or even energy brokers, as no one else in the industry is presenting a comparable offer. The Zero-Cost Program™ is a financial tool that business owners and decision makers can use to retrofit their businesses to the latest technology, help achieve sustainability goals and increase their net operating income.
Among Zen's first clients is a Texas-based company that owns and manages a real-estate portfolio encompassing retail, mixed-use, multi-family, grocery chains and healthcare related assets. Petromark, one of its divisions, recently contracted over 150 (and counting) convenient store/gas stations to take full advantage of Zen's Zero-Cost Program™. Zen is nearing completion on all site surveys and will soon be in the analytical phase of the sales process, which will be followed by underwriting and installation.
"Our early estimates indicate that there will be a significant reduction in electricity consumption for Petromark," commented Zen's VP of Business Development, Jeff Bay-Andersen.
Those interested in learning more about the Zero-Cost program can contact Bay-Andersen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"While the Company is expecting to report a nice revenue jump for the first quarter, it will not be until Q2 and Q3 when we begin to really ramp up the program that we will see materially-significant revenue levels," said CHRON's President & CEO, Alex Rodriguez.
