Imex Plans to Launch GOVCANN Platform for Cannabis Government Marketplace
September 27, 2018 (Source) — Imex Systems Inc. (“Imex” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: IMEX; OTC: IMSYF) a software solution provider to Governments, Municipalities and Public Authorities, plans to launch a comprehensive platform integrated into IMEX’s iGov portal called GOVCANN.GOVCANN will provide vital content and information to medicinal and recreational cannabis users. The Imex iGov platform was built to empower and allow citizens to interact with their province or municipality to gain information or to purchase needed services that these government jurisdictions provide. With the Ontario provincial government allowing citizens to purchase cannabis through the internet on October 17, 2018, we believe that Ontario municipalities and their citizens can benefit from up to date content on laws, procedures, and processes for the purchase of cannabis from this hub. This platform will become a central interface for cannabis news as citizens want customized information within their municipality. Going forward, Imex plans to offer this framework to other provinces that have adopted a retail recreational sales model instead of online sales.
The GOVCANN platform will be built utilizing artificial intelligence to amass highly scalable cannabis data analytics and will provide geographically specific and relevant content for users.
The Company has initiated conversations with several licensed producers on how to effectively integrate into their framework. Imex plans to become a key GATEWAY for municipalities and their citizens to become more engaged with their recreational and medicinal experiences. The Company will be seeking strategic capital to facilitate this new initiative.
“This is a unique offering to help support and drive educational interest for municipalities who want to work hand in hand with the provinces as we approach legalization. We also see this allowing specific clinics to reach citizens and municipalities with a very targeted approach. It empowers municipalities to define and customize messages to a local level that provinces are disseminating.” Says Rob Klein, CEO.
