NexTech Signs Reseller Agreement with Foottraffik Cannabis Dispensary Software Company

New York, NY and Toronto, ON, April 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (NEXCF) (NTAR.CN) (N29.F) today announced it has entered into a reseller agreement with Foottraffik, a dispensary marketing software and full service agency for the cannabis industry. The reseller agreement will enable Foottraffik to market NexTech’s innovative AR eCommerce solutions to its roster of more than 125 cannabis dispensary clients including Clear Choice, Remedy, Have a Heart, The Higher Path and others.

“We are very excited to announce that two of the most innovative cannabis tech companies have united to bring forth the future of technology to the global cannabis market,” said Guillermo Bravo, CEO of Foottraffik. “Digital marketing, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence are the trifecta in the new era of cannabis. We are pleased to unite NexTechAR & Foottraffik in a partnership that will augment the reality of the cannabis industry through innovative technology and immersive consumer experiences.”

Foottraffik will resell NexTech’s AR Dispensary eCommerce platform, its 3D advertising capabilities, and its virtual “AR showrooms.” AR Dispensary utilizes immersive AR technology and rich 3D 360-degree photography to provide an eCommerce experience unparalleled in the legal cannabis industry. The white-label web-based AR solution, integrated into a dispensary’s website seamlessly through just a snippet of code, allows consumers to preview products like flowers, gear, pre-rolls, and more from home or on-the-go. The platform can also support features for online ordering/pickup, and online ordering/delivery (where permitted), creating a complete digital dispensary experience.

“We are pleased to announce this strategic partnership with Foottraffik and to continue our penetration of the burgeoning legal cannabis industry by offering the most complete end-to-end AR solutions on the market,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “We believe the combination of Foottraffik’s industry expertise and vast client network provides an optimal vehicle for distribution of our technology on a broader scale, while empowering dispensaries to increase sales and provide a more complete customer experience. ”

With spending on legal cannabis worldwide expected to reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, on-demand, interactive AR experiences are the next step towards improving customers’ path to purchase. This partnership continues NexTech’s penetration into the burgeoning market, following the release of its AR Dispensary platform in March 2019, and its deal with Cannvas Medtech Inc., a leading digital cannabis education and business technology company, in January 2019.
