MURRIETA, Calif., Sept. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IGEN Networks Corporation (OTCQB: IGEN, CSE: IGN), a leading innovator of cloud-based and Internet of Things (IoT) automotive solutions for the protection and management of mobile assets, today announced its participation at the Inclusiv Annual Conference to be held in Los Angeles, California, September 16th to 19th, as one of the largest gathering of credit unions from continental US. IGEN’s participation will include the launch of its newest product line CU Trak, a white-labelled version of IGEN’s industry leading mobile asset tracking and security solution sold exclusively on Sprint’s IoT Factory platform to credit union customers. Sprint’s IoT Factory enables commercial and enterprise customers to explore, select and rapidly implement innovative, finished IoT solutions according to their unique needs.
“IGEN is delighted to have been invited to participate at the Inclusiv Annual Conference as it brings together over 300 Credit Unions from the continental US, many of them to be introduced to IGEN’s CU Trak product sold exclusively through Sprint’s IoT Factory platform,” said Abel Sierra, VP Business Development. “More and more credit unions around the country are offering “Fresh Start” programs directed toward members with credit challenges who need to obtain a vehicle loan at fair and reasonable interest rates, CU Trak provides a valuable win-win situation for the lender and the consumer. By deploying CU Trak as part of the underwriting process, credit unions may be able to finance more of their members with low credit scores while offering lower down payments and improved overall loan performance. This allows more credit union members to get the vehicle loans they need for work and mobility while enjoying the benefits of user-friendly mobile apps to monitor their vehicle, such as real-time speed alerts, location reports, stolen-vehicle protection and driver behavior data, as part of the ongoing services package.”
CU Trak will be sold as a three-year hardware and monitoring services bundle through Sprint’s 2,000-plus SMB representatives located in eight regions across the United States and Puerto Rico. The product will initially target approximately 2,500 credit unions in key markets out of more than 6,500 credit unions nationwide.
