Imex Systems GOVCANN to Empower Industry Participants
October 16, 2018 (Source) — Imex Systems Inc. (“Imex” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: IMEX; OTC: IMSYF) a software solution provider to Governments, Municipalities and Public Authorities, is pleased to announce that it has advanced its working model of the GOVCANN platform and is in the process of forming strategic relationships as the country prepares for adult-use cannabis legalization on October 17, 2018.
The Company is developing the GOVCANN platform utilizing artificial intelligence to amass highly scalable cannabis data analytics and will provide geographically specific and relevant content for users. This will be built upon a Canada-wide, real-time blockchain tracking system in order to enhance public safety and reduce regulatory costs by mitigating supply chain risks associated with legal cannabis product diversion and unknown product quality in the black market.
Further to integrating GOVCANN into its iGov platform, the Company aims to initially work with municipalities and regional law enforcement agencies to promote socially responsible cannabis initiatives within their communities. This education and awareness platform is critical to the development of the responsible, safe cannabis industry in Canada.
“We have been consulting with representatives at various levels of government and have found that there is a dire need for information as it relates to both medical and adult-use recreational cannabis,” said Rob Klein, CEO of Imex. “We have the technology, the platform, and expertise so extending our relationships with governments and public agencies into the rapidly emerging cannabis industry is a natural fit. We are excited to launch our initial pilot project and will provide more details in the coming weeks.”
