August 13, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Isodiol International Inc. (CSE: ISOL) (OTCQB: ISOLD) (FSE: LB6A.F) (the “Company” or “Isodiol”), a global CBD innovator and market leader, is pleased to announce the launch of its automated retail strategy, with the Company planning to roll out a nation-wide network of branded kiosks, which will provide consumers with convenient access to natural health and wellness cannabinoid (CBD) based products.
The initial roll-out of Isodiol’s kiosks will focus on the launch of its Iso-Sport branded products, as well as the recently launched Kathy Ireland Health & Wellness brand. As such, the Company will support its nationwide rollout through close marketing collaboration with its brand influencers to inspire, educate and connect directly with customers. The curated user interface and integrated digital signage will also ensure that the product and brand presentations remain consistent.
“Companies with early insights into new trends and norms of daily commercial behavior are poised to prosper,” said CEO of Isodiol, Marcos Agramont. “As it stands, there is a global trend and substantial increase in the deployment of interactive self-service kiosks around the world.”
The Company plans to introduce its kiosks at various high profile and high traffic locations, as well as co-locating within retailers such as pharmacies, convenient stores, wellness centers, gyms, and more. The products and locations of these units will comply with the appropriate legislation in each jurisdiction. The use of such systems will also include innovative ways to collect data on inventory and customer behavior and preferences, thus allowing better recommendations to be offered based on purchase trends, or other metrics such as a user’s input of specific health conditions.
The kiosks will have different recognition capabilities in order to verify users, as well as provide many different payment options including credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, Google Wallet, and Apple Pay. Additionally, the Company expects cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin to be an accepted payment method in the near future.
A mobile application will also provide consumers with the ability to browse products remotely and determine in real time where to find a kiosk stocked with their desired products. The company will also seek to further harness the power of social media, integrated marketing campaigns, promos, coupons and more. For instance, the Company’s automated retail system will allow customer interaction with the ability to tweet messages directly to the kiosks, and also the ability to upload pictures to Instagram for samples or discounts.
Further, through its enterprise scale cloud based platform, the Company will be able to centrally monitor its network of automated retail units, and manage and optimize in real-time every aspect of its operations, from merchandising to remote technical support.
“In an era of growing mobility, consumers demand for easy access to products and services anytime and from anywhere,” added Agramont. “We are excited to begin a new phase of our retail strategy and significantly increase our footprint and direct access to consumers for our industry leading line of CBD products.”
The Company is also pleased to announce that it debuted its Iso-Sport vending machine at the Phoenix Europa Games, which took place August 11-12, 2018. As regulation continues to become favorable, the Company intends to place multiple vending machines in gyms and fitness centers across the globe. The Company believes this is another innovative measure to provide consumers with convenient access to natural health and wellness CBD based products around the globe.
