Loop Insights Signs $1,930,000 USD License Deal with Austin, TX Based CasaPerks 

VANCOUVER, BC, September 28, 2020,  Loop Insights Inc. (MTRX:TSXV) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement, and automated contact tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce the signing of a short form agreement to grant Austin, TX based startup CasaPerks LLC (“CasaPerks”) a non-exclusive license to use various aspects of Loop’s technology in return for $1,930,000 in cash and shares.

CASAPERKS SOLUTION FOR THE PROPTECH MARKET COMBINED WITH LOOP ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CREATES POWERFUL, DISRUPTIVE OFFERING  

CasaPerks is a property technology, or “proptech”, startup from Austin, Texas. Proptech is a very fast-growing space and CasaPerks is on its cutting edge, creating a multi-pronged solution specifically for the commercial real estate industry. For the property operator, CasaPerks will help drive revenues and significantly reduce costs, while for the resident it will greatly enhance the overall living experience.

As part of this multi-pronged approach, CasaPerks will provide both reward (i.e points) and fintech layers (i.e. car payments) that will require the artificial intelligence capabilities of Loop to optimize and maximize a target market that includes 79.5 million renters in 14.1 million units. Loop Technologies included in the license are as follows:

  • AI Data Insights Portal;
  • Smartapp Check-in technology;
  • Digital Wallet Pass Technology

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated, “I am very excited about the path and direction of CasaPerks, which is led by Kevin Bradt, whose track record of success speaks for itself. CasaPerks’ major disruptive strategy, which now creates a return on rental investment, is a major paradigm shift in the entire sector’s core value proposition. Combined with our AI & Big Data Solutions, CasaPerks’ loyalty rewards and Fintech will result in a very powerful product offering. COVID-19 has accelerated the necessity for mobile commerce in every vertical, and CasaPerks is now set to quickly become the new standard for the industry.”

DISRUPTIVE OFFERING PROVIDES MASSIVE POTENTIAL UPSIDE AS “PROPTECH” GROWS UNDER COVID-19

The last couple of years have seen the emergence of proptech, which is applying information technology and platform economics to streamline and modernize the cumbersome process of browsing, building, and transacting in real estate.

In 2019 alone, upwards of $16 billion USD in venture capital flowed into proptech startups (according to data from Crunchbase and Pitchbook), clearly demonstrating that VC’s “are turning to proptech for returns and disruption on a global scale”.

The advent of COVD-19 has only further accelerated the need for proptech applications from Hedge Funds, Pension Funds and owners who have seen significant disruption in their investments and look to new revenue models and opportunities.

LICENSING AGREEMENT CREATES “A.I. PROPTECH” FOR GLOBAL SCALE

The CasaPerks platform infused with Loop Insights technology represents the dawn of Artificially Intelligent proptech that delivers an entirely new experience to users while providing investors and owners with multiple areas to create value.

Moreover, the offering will provide major brands with unparalleled data and direct access to the CasaPerks user base, including renowned brands in grocery, finance, fast food, internet, and entertainment.

The combination of CasaPerks and Loop is expected to create lucrative revenue models based on known user profiles thanks to robust granular insights based on real-time engagement, spend and future needs, leading to significant impacts on:

  • ARPU Average Revenue Per User
  • ARPL Average Revenue Per Location

Kevin Bradt, CEO of CasaPerks, stated, “Our strategy at CasaPerks is to build a robust platform with best-in-class partnerships throughout our entire ecosystem. Loop’s technology is very impressive and provides us with significant additional layers to our core technology that will prove to be extremely valuable. Our vision is to expand CasaPerks from a regional offering to a national footprint and then eventually achieving global scale.”
