iSIGN Media Signs Agreement With POPcodes to Introduce Instant In-Store Point-of-Sales Redemption

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 16, 2015) - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or the "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, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with POPcodes, a cloud based Software as a Service ("SaaS") company that enables the secure distribution, data gathering and redemption of promotional, loyalty and purchase related content into existing in-store devices.

The purpose of the MOU is to demonstrate the technical framework integrating the design and function of POPcodes' solutions and technology to facilitate the in-store proof of redemption of all promotions delivered by iSIGN's patented mobile messaging technology to consumers on printed receipts and to provide additional proof of redemption to the retailer/brands/advertisers.

Both companies, with cloud based solutions, will be engaging in a series of pilot projects in order to demonstrate and prove the effectiveness of instant in-store promotional redemption on point-of-sale devices.

The planned goal of both companies is that once these pilot projects have been completed, the companies will finalize a definitive agreement to integrate and sell each other's solutions and services, generating user fees from existing networks and new customers thus adding additional and increased revenues.

"iSIGN's ability to quickly deliver promotions to consumers in proximity without the need for an app aligns very well with POPcodes commitment to seamless and rewarding in-store experiences," commented POPcodes' Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Gregg Aamoth. "POPcodes is thrilled to provide iSIGN with the last meter of promotions measurement - the actual in-store purchase."

"We see the POPcodes technology as a solution to provide accurate measurement of offer and coupon redemption to our clients in real time," stated Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that all sectors of retail commerce are looking for this final POS confirmation."

"Advertisers and brands that we encounter have all expressed a very strong desire for an in-store proof of redemption system for mobile messaging in real time," said Mr. Ron Leman, Chief Executive Officer of Graphic Media, Inc., iSIGN's exclusive distributor for the Americans, and Engage Mobile Media, Graphic's sales arm. "We are looking forward to introducing this unique solution to our clients as quickly as possible."
