CLEARWATER, FLORIDA--(Marketwired - March 12, 2014) - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ISD)(OTCQX:ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America, today announced that it has arranged with Risser Oil Corporation ("Risser") to install Smart Antennas into four of its franchisee locations that are affiliated with Rally Convenience Stores ("Rally").
Risser, founded in February 1960, markets Rally Stores, Mobil, Exxon, Shell and BP Amoco petroleum products throughout west-central Florida, with a mix of corporately owned and franchised operations.
The installations into the four Rally locations have been completed and the trial is scheduled to run for 90 days. During this period, coupons for gas discounts, car washes, drinks and snacks will be broadcast by iSIGN's Smart Antennas to shoppers' mobile devices.
The locations that were chosen for the test are located at 1200 East Bay Drive and 8890 Ulmerton Rd, both located in Largo; 12602 49th Street North in Clearwater and 1080 Pasadena Ave., Pasadena.
"I have had iSIGN's Smart Antennas installed in my location for about a week and have been very impressed with their results," stated Mr. Hany Zaki, the franchise owner at Rally store #222 located at 1200 East Bay Drive in Largo, Florida. "The units were easy to install and my customers have been reacting very favorably to receiving messages when in proximity to my station."
"Based on our success with National Oil in Indiana and Ohio, we fully expect Risser to become our second gas station/convenience store network," said Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "We are looking forward to a successful trial and to a potential installation into 100 outlets at its conclusion."
"Once the trail is successful, the Risser locations will become a part of the National Mobile Network that is managed by GraphicMedia, Inc., our master distributor for the Americas," added Mr. Romanov.
