Pool Safe Provides Shareholders with Corporate Update
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 30, 2021) - Pool Safe Inc. (TSXV: POOL) ("Pool Safe" or the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders with an update on the Company's progress and achievements throughout the year.
CEO MESSAGE TO SHAREHOLDERS:
On behalf of the Pool Safe team, I would like to begin by thanking all of our stakeholders for your continued support in an environment that has been very challenging for everyone. When the COVID-19 pandemic began it became imperative that our Company secured its viability by creating a detailed strategy for navigating through the many unknown scenarios the Company was facing. In addition, it was critical to safeguard, to the best of our ability, our employees' wellbeing and continued employment. We were quite confident that our business would recover and very likely, come back stronger than ever. We are pleased with our achievements and progress through the first half of this year and believe that many of these accomplishments have established a strong foundation for continued growth for the balance of the year.
REVENUE SHARE PARTNERSHIPS
The Company continues to establish new partnerships with many of the industry's largest global hotel and resort chains as well as the ever-expanding market within the waterpark space. In 2021, we have built and delivered in excess of 140 new PoolSafe units under our revenue share partnerships. We are currently building for two Florida properties and expect to deliver an additional 125 new PoolSafe units by the end of September. In addition to the new builds, we have upgraded over 120 PoolSafe units currently in service. The backlog in supply chain and shipping, combined with the logistical issues due to the closure of the U.S./Canada border has proved challenging. Nevertheless, new and upgraded PoolSafe units have been delivered and are now in service.
Customer service is a top priority for the Pool Safe team, and we have been particularly diligent in this regard. We are delighted when we receive positive feedback from our partner's sites. A true testament to this is when our partners renew their three or four-year revenue share agreements. Increasing the number of PoolSafe units at a partner site further endorses not only the acceptance of our unique product but also indicates the potential for widespread increasing adoption. To date in 2021, in spite of ongoing lockdown and other associated COVID challenges, we have renewed three revenue share agreements and added additional units to four partner properties.
We continue to improve our PoolSafe product to ensure it can literally "weather this year's extraordinary climate change difficulties", which include 100-degree temperatures, high levels of humidity, salt water and sand, high winds, all of which can make the environment quite challenging. The PoolSafe has proven its ability to endure a variety of exceptional weather-related extremes.
Customer valuables must stay safe and dry. Each unit has an onboard communication that interfaces with the food and beverage (F&B) terminal for service. This ensures that the customer receives prompt service and with that, helps increase F&B sales for our partners. Those are just a couple of the built-in, value add conveniences the PoolSafe offers to our partners and their customers.
Our technology allows us to continue to add meaningful new features and upgrades.
THE PATH FORWARD
Pool Safe's leadership will continue to efficiently execute our long-term business goals for the betterment of our partners, customers, and shareholders. The multi-year revenue share agreement helps anchor our product to our partners' sites and will enable the Company to cross sell additional services. One of the differentiating factors for the PoolSafe is in its technical capabilities. We will continue to develop new and innovative technologies to add new revenue streams which simultaneously enhance the customer experience. These will include:
- Upgrading the communications network to ease implementation and increase bandwidth to provide audit functionality.
- Building an application interface to utilize the client or partner P.O.S. This is essential for enabling the user to interface with other goods and services offered at the resort or leisure site.
- Each PoolSafe will collect usage information and warehouse the data in the Cloud for later mining and monetization.
- The design/implementation of components which will enable manufacturing cost savings.
We look forward to providing our stakeholders with updates as we execute our plan and successfully achieve our milestones. As always, thank you for your continued support.
