Bulk Registration – Simple and Fast

Bulk registrations for iSIGN's Safety Alert Messaging (SAM) is as simple as forwarding the required five pieces of information exported from a user's database in a CSV file.  The five pieces of information are: last name; first name; cell phone number; email address; and group designation (family, resident, employee, student, first responder, hotel quests, etc.).  Note that it is still an option for individuals to register on their own.  The purpose for bulk registration is to make it easier and faster for larger clients to have the information imported into SAM's backend.

SAM Now Capable of Bulk Registrations

In discussions with some of the larger companies that we have been in conversations with concerning our SAM technology,  a common question that has been raised is the registration process and whether it is possible to 'bulk register' individuals, as opposed to registering each person individually. Based on this feedback, we have been working to have a mass registration process incorporated into our SAM solution.  This process is now a feature of SAM and is available to all users regardless of size.

Nevada Governor Announces Re-opening of Casinos Beginning Next Week

Nevada's Governor, Steve Sisolak, announced yesterday that the state's casinos will begin reopening next week.  The Governor expressed confidence that the institutions would observe social distancing guidelines and urged Nevadans to wear facial coverings "like a badge of honor." Additionally, Mr. Sisolak stated that in-person religious services of up to 50 people could start Friday and that places like shopping malls, bars, movie theaters and gyms could open with some restrictions. As Nevada had the highest unemployment rate of any state last month at 28.2% (almost double the national average of 14.7%), this re-opening announcement could provide a big economic boost to the state's economy amid the coronavirus' burgeoning economic fallout, given that the 24 casinos on the Las Vegas Strip earned over $72 million (US) in fiscal 2017, according to the Center for Gaming Research. This easing of restrictions allows Hi-Tek to continue with their interrupted discussions and presentations in a variety of channels including casinos and hotels, both for the Omni Veil network (powered by iSIGN technology and hardware), but for SAM as well.

Demand for Safety Alert Messaging (SAM) Continues

Our recent press releases concerning SAM have brought increased attention to us and have led to inquiries from companies not only within the seniors/nursing home sphere, but outside as well: A Canadian manufacturer has asked for a demo of SAM and once held, will enter into discussions for a commercial messaging contract.  The number of employees exceeds 700 to start. We have had 2 inquiries from Chilean companies who were introduced to SAM in January 2019, during the trade mission to Chile held by the Ontario government and sponsored by the Chilean Association of technology Companies that we were part of.  One of these inquiries include continued negotiations with Codelco, one of the largest copper mines in the world.  We will be introducing our POD hardware to these companies as well. Additionally, one of the companies inquired about Smart Antenna pricing, as they are "working on several projects where we have proposed the use of antennas." We are encouraged by the ongoing interest shown in SAM from a variety of different channels.

Student Study Regarding The Mandalay Bay Shooting Incident and the Omni Veil Network

We were recently contacted by a team of local computer science research and math inclined quarantined  students who were impressed with what they had seen and hear about the Omni Veil Network (powered by iSIGN).  Hi-Tek and Omni Veil will possibly be using this study in their various presentations as the state of Nevada and the city of Las Vegas eases their Coronavirus/Covid-19 restrictions. The students assumptions included that the small cost for registering for mobile alerts through the Omni Veil app would have been an add-on option to the ticket price for the concert and that a large number of the approximately 22,000 attendees would have completed the registration process to activate the app.  These people would then have been in a position to receive an instant danger alert with subsequent alerts with instructions on where to exit, thus reducing the confusion that was rampant that night. The students' conclusion is that had the Omni Veil app been available at the time of the Mandalay Bay shooting incident in October 2017 and used by the event organizers, 20 of the 59 lives would have been saved and the over 850 injuries (413 wounded and 455 injured in the directionless stampede to exit) suffered that night would have been reduced by 50%.
