MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2010) - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ISD), today announced that it has partnered with Skipton Group Inc.

The partnership goal is to integrate iSIGN's Bluetooth OEM software solution into the IBM AnyPlace Kiosks, under a licensing agreement, which would then be able to deliver digital coupons, receipts and product information to customer's smartphones and handheld devices within a defined proximity of the Kiosk.

"This will be an in store "DIGITAL GREETER" providing a unique method for delivering product coupons and information to opt-in customers and participating store loyalty program members." adds Paul Bruce Co-founder of Skipton.

Additionally, data logging of coupons dispensed, consumer acceptance rates and the conversion to purchases for promoted items will be available in real time.

All messaging is delivered free of charge to consumers and will ultimately increase product sales as well as brand and store loyalty.
