VANCOUVER, BC, April 14, 2020 – Loop Insights Inc. (TSX.V: MTRX) (the “Company” or “Loop”)—provider of transformative artificial intelligence solutions to brick and mortar retailers— announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), and intends to enter into a joint venture partnership, with Frontier Technology to access the lucrative Indonesian retail market.
Frontier Technology’s large network of clients opens up doors to several large-scale industries, including healthcare, convenience and retail chains, restaurant and hospitality chains, and smart city projects.
Loop expects several revenue streams from these large-scale possibilities. In this market, Loop’s re-seller distribution model will ensure the company is positioned for fast scalability, while maintaining an agile and low-cost operating structure. Its revenue share business model will also ensure a very strong, consistent revenue flow. With Indonesia’s expanding population of nearly 256 million, Loop anticipates high engagement with the rapidly growing mobile-friendly market; and therefore, a high ARPU (average revenue per user) opportunity.
Frontier Technology CEO Victor Rindanaung said: “Our clients are in search of transformative, cloud-based solutions—Covid-19 has turned this into an immediate need. Loop has demonstrated to us that their products offer our clients a low-cost, high-return solution to future proof their business. Loop’s contactless ID verification platform and wallet pass technology is particularly disruptive, and we are very excited to bring it to the Indonesian market together.”
IDC (International Data Corporation) Indonesia sees 2020 as a major year for ICT spending as digital transformation awareness is increasing. The information technology (IT) spending alone, excluding communication spending, is expected to reach US$11.9 billion in 2020.
Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson commented: “Loop is 100% focused on the execution and deployment of our products on a global scale. We intend to fully support and leverage Frontier Technology’s network of clients to gain instant traction in the Indonesian market—one that is very mobile-driven and hosts a large population of users. This opportunity with Frontier Technology is a major development for Loop and marks the first of many global partnerships to come.”
