Fobi Announces Partnership with Janam Technologies To Offer Contactless Venue Solutions Targeting Hospitality, Ticketing, Retail, Health Care and Other Verticals

Combination of Janam Devices and Fobi Wallet Pass solutions will drive revenue through joint prospects, Janam customers and Fobi Reseller Channel Partners such as Telus & Amazon Business.

 

Fobi AI Inc. (FOBI: TSXV FOBIF: OTCQB) (the “Company” or “FOBI”), a leader in providing real-time data analytics through artificial intelligence to drive operational efficiencies and profitability, today announced a new partnership with Janam Technologies, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers and contactless access solutions, to deliver powerful, easy-to-use solutions that enable businesses to share information and interact with customers in more meaningful ways.

 

Together, Fobi and Janam offer end-to-end mobile wallet and hardware solutions for the sports and live entertainment, hospitality, retail and healthcare industries among others.  The synergies between Janam’s industry-proven data capture devices and Fobi’s Wallet pass solutions are very exciting, particularly for venue management, and this partnership offers an entirely new level of service to organizations that want to improve access control, reduce fraud, gain real-time insights and enhance the customer experience. 

 

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP PROVIDES MOST ADVANCED NFC TAP-AND-GO TECHNOLOGY FOR BOTH NEW AND EXISTING CUSTOMERS

 

Janam’s XT3 rugged touch computer and GT1 entry solution paired with Fobi’s Wallet Pass platforms provides a complete mobile ticketing solution for venue access, retail loyalty programs, employee ID and healthcare verification.  Leveraging Janam’s leading position in access control, Fobi and Janam first rolled out its venue management solution to automate registration, ticketing and check-in processes for venues, conferences and events for a fast, safe and contactless experience. The joint mobile ticketing solution for venue management was recently deployed at the NCAA Division I basketball tournaments that Fobi supported for bdG Sports in both Naples, Florida, and the Bahamas.

 

Additional offerings will be available soon, including a loyalty program solution that enables customers to download a Wallet pass from select retailers and self-scan it with a Janam device, providing immediate access to loyalty points, stored value, e-gift cards or stamp card functionality.  Fobi and Janam also plan to introduce an Employee ID management solution to help corporations safely bring their staff back into the office amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the new Omicron variant.  This solution enables companies to replace employee ID cards with Wallet passes to not only validate access and track attendance but also push notifications out to their staff with important information such as COVID-19 exposure alerts.  Fobi’s CheckVax is another Wallet pass solution that integrates with Janam’s devices either separately or layered onto the Employee ID pass to provide businesses and venues of all types and sizes with the ability to pre-verify vaccination status or COVID-19 testing results to speed entry and help to protect employees and guests. 

 

Fobi and Janam are working closely to deliver ground-breaking and affordable solutions to their existing customers, with the ability to purchase directly or through Fobi’s reseller channel partners such as Amazon Business and Telus. 

 

“This partnership will deliver a significant win-win for organizations in the verticals we are targeting, as well as our current customers who will now gain access to more complete hardware and software solutions,” said Rob Anson, Fobi CEO. “The synergies between the two organizations and the target verticals align very well, and we are looking forward to going to market together with these joint solutions.”

 

FUTURE COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN FOBI AND JANAM ARE ON THE HORIZON
