05 April 2023

VANCOUVER, BC, April 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fobi AI Inc. (FOBI:TSXV) (FOBIF:OTCQB) (the "Company" or "Fobi"), an industry leader in harnessing AI and data intelligence to enable digital transformation, is pleased to announce that the company has signed a new annual North American license agreement with ParcelPal Logistics Inc. Fobi will provide its Wallet Pass platform and digital ID verification solution, AltID. The deal is a one-year contract with auto-renewal and includes an annual license fee of $55,000 and a fee of $0.10 per active pass per month, plus an additional $0.95 for each AltID verification.

ParcelPal Logistics is a courier and logistics company that specializes in providing last-mile delivery and logistics solutions across various industries, including pharmacy and health, meal kit deliveries, retail, groceries and regulated industries such as tobacco, liquor and cannabis. ParcelPal customers include many top B2C and B2B brands, including Amazon, FedEx, London Drugs, GoodFood and Electronic Arts.


Rich Wheeless, CEO of ParcelPal, recently announced that the logistics company is focusing its 2023 growth strategy on speeding up their digital transformation efforts and integrating best-in-class technologies into the strategic relaunch of the ParcelPal mobile application. Through the Wallet Pass platform, Fobi will provide ParcelPal with a seamless plug-in solution that will transform and augment the customer experience, delivering an enhanced communication channel and delivery service to its customer base. The Wallet Pass is a natural extension to the mobile app, enabling ParcelPal to introduce and leverage next-level technology that will help scale its services and provide a significant competitive advantage, especially as ParcelPal looks to expand the reach of its mobile platform into Europe and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.


AltID is a secure and easy-to-use digital age and ID verification solution that will provide ParcelPal with a completely new means of ensuring proper authentication for logistics, shipping, and delivery services in regulated industries, including tobacco, liquor, and cannabis. AltID offers a contactless and more verifiable approach to the distribution of regulated products, enabling ParcelPal to easily scan and validate customer credentials through the wallet pass at each point of delivery. With automated ID verification, customers simply authenticate their identities online and download verified passes to their mobile wallets. As a result, not only does AltID enable ParcelPal to pre-verify customers’ digital credentials, but it also provides the courier with a guaranteed audit trail for ID verification that reduces risk and liability concerns.

AltID also ensures that verified wallet passes only display the necessary data for verification, such as name and age, to ensure that personally identifiable information (PII) is not collected or stored. Through AltID, ParcelPal will be able to significantly scale its delivery services for regulated products and offerings, while providing customers with an improved experience that places data privacy, protection, and security at the forefront.

Rich Wheeless, CEO of ParcelPal, states: “This deal with Fobi provides us with a clear market differentiator as we become hyper-focused on driving our digital transformation strategy and strengthening our mobile customer experience. We want to provide our customers with best-in-class experiences, and one of the best ways to do that is through an integration with the Fobi Wallet Pass platform and digital ID verification solution. I have no doubts that this addition will provide us with a significant competitive advantage, especially as it relates to deliveries for regulated industries.”

Rob Anson, CEO of Fobi, states: “There is no better timing for this new deal with ParcelPal than with the relaunch of their mobile customer experience. Our cutting-edge technologies, including wallet passes and AltID, align perfectly with ParcelPal’s focus in 2023 on integrating new and innovative solutions into their product offering. They can now leverage two of Fobi’s existing technologies to deliver an enhanced solution that positions ParcelPal as a market leader in the delivery space for regulated and other industries. This deal is a great example of the value our tech provides across many industries and the license deal further validates the market readiness for mobile-first and digital identity solutions.”
