MacroSolve announced it has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent (LOI) with U.K.-based App Innovations, Ltd. Per the terms of the LOI, MacroSolve and App Innovations will negotiate an agreement for App Innovations to have a non-exclusive right to market and distribute MacroSolve's DineInsight(TM) restaurant app in the United Kingdom and other to be agreed upon markets.
MacroSolve is expected to provide its patented technology, as well as technical assistance, to the cooperative distribution agreement. App Innovations is expected to directly market the app to pubs and restaurants, as well as providing customization of the apps, and extended customer services including social marketing and support.
"This LOI provides a framework to take our patented mobile business apps into international territories on a large scale for the first time. Although we have had some international customers in the past, an agreement with App Innovations will enable us to distribute significant numbers of apps to thousands of pub and restaurant establishments in Europe. This is very much in line with our strategy of working with distribution partners to reach new markets and ramp up revenues," stated MacroSolve President and CEO, Clint Parr.
