Papa John's Update

Please click anywhere on this post for an article relating to Papa John's.

The use of SMS text messages by Papa John's and its franchisees in early 2016 resulted in this law suit being filed against them this past February.

We trust this article will give you an insight into why Papa John's is taking so long to decide on revisiting a proximity marketing trial using our Smart Antennas.  While we are not at liberty to release details relating to discussions with end clients, as this lawsuit is now in the public domain, we can reveal this one aspect of the delays.  This is an example of why concluding discussions with Papa John's is taking so long.

McDonald's Turns to Technology, Value to Win Back Lost Customers

Click anywhere on this post for an article about McDonald's Restaurants, written March 1, 2017.

We are on occasion asked about McDonald's plans to replace their drive-thru menu boards (kiosks) with digital screens enhanced with our technology.

As this article states, McDonald's US restaurants, that contribute about 40% of McDonald's overall operating income, have had 4 straight years of declining traffic.  It was McDonald's financial downturn that originally caused them to delay the purchase and installation of the digital drive-thru kiosks that were to be manufactured and installed by our partner, Keyser.  McDonald's franchisees were non-supportive of incurring a sizable (of which we were a small component of the total cost) given their declining revenues and profits.

We continue to regularly communicate with Keyser to discuss our technology and software development, such as the push sensor, which would appear to fit within McDonald's plans as mentioned in the article.  Keyser continues to maintain that the replacement of McDonald's drive-thrus will eventually take place.  In the meantime, Keyser is looking forward to the completion of the push sensor development.

Cleveland Meetings

Cleveland Meetings

The meetings at We Build App's offices are currently underway and are going well.  WBA and iSIGN participants in these meetings include Rodney Colley, WBA's Chief Executive Officer and Founder; Tom Lahiff, WBA's Senior Vice President and local city councilman; Alex Romanov and Joe Kozar. 

Included in today's events was a tour of the shopping complex where iSIGN's technology and Smart Antennas will provide commercial messaging and security/safety alerts to mobile devices, which is where the attached pictures were taken.

iSIGN Introduces Emergency and Security Alert Mobile System

As advised on January 26, the meetings with We Build Apps being held on February 1 will include the introduction of iSIGN's Security Alert solutions.  iSIGN's system is the first proximity emergency security alert solution to mobile devices available for introduction to resellers and end-users globally.

Samples of the Security Alert Sign-up; Registration page and of a security message can be viewed by clicking anywhere on this post.  These items are fully customizable to suit the requirements, needs and wants of the client for each of their locations, in terms of content, appearance (including colour scheme), etc. 

Note that the use of the specific airport location on the attached should not be taken as an indication or acknowledgement of contact and/or discussions with that specific airport.

The back-end dashboard is exclusive and unique to iSIGN and will also be presented in the upcoming meetings with WBA.  However, it is not currently available for showing publicly in order to protect the company's IP.

Visitors to a location utilizing our Security Alert Solution will be notified by signage, digital and/or other, that safety and security alerts will be sent to their mobile devices by Bluetooth messaging and/or by Wi-Fi.  The signage will also encourage visitors to complete the registration form to receive security alerts.

Sign-up notices and registration forms will also be delivered to visitors' mobile devices by Bluetooth messages and Wi-Fi.  The advantage of registering to receive alerts, is that by doing so the visitor will also receive alerts when they are at other locations utilizing iSIGN's networked Security Alert Solution.  Registering also allows for alerts to be delivered in a variety of methods other than by Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

It is important to note that should visitors elect to not fill out the registration form, alerts will still be delivered to their mobile devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The dashboard, and sample messaging will be presented to our resellers for use in their presentations to large sized retailers, airports, public spaces and military bases after the meetings with WBA.

Due to the confidential nature and exclusivity of this first time security solution, we are limiting information and discussion to resellers and potential end clients.
