IDGLOBAL Creates Cross-Marketing Agreement with Grand ISS to Combat Counterfeiting Diversion and Piracy
KELOWNA, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IDGLOBAL (Pink Sheets:IDGJ) is pleased to announce that IDGLOBAL and Grand ISS have concluded a cross-marketing agreement to enhance the total solutions package for both companies. Grand ISS, headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, organizes the separate disciplines of private intelligence, risk mitigation, and security into one global solutions company. Its innovative methodology promotes single source access to turnkey solutions addressing todays most demanding global challenges.
We are most proud of our teaming policy which joins us with visionary partners to create a powerful collaborative operating culture. The integration of shared best practices and mutual resources enables us to offer clients higher efficiencies and breakthrough technologies, said Ralph Frasca, Jr., President and CEO of Grand ISS. And we view IDGLOBALS core technology, in the most concise parlance, as anti-counterfeiting technologys ubiquitous solution. Together with their core competency protocols and proprietary layered solutions applications, we believe IDGLOBAL is uniquely qualified to help Grand ISS accelerate our specialized C.A.T. (Counterfeit Abatement Team) initiative throughout the world.
The rapidly growing crime of counterfeiting in todays global economy is driving businesses worldwide to seek more effective solutions to stem the problem. Compounding the task is the fact that the illicit activity delivers attractive profit margins, and in most countries the penalties are either minimal or non-existent. Another major issue escalating the problem is the wide-spread involvement of organized crime and terrorist organizations, said Steven C. Purl, COO of Grand ISS and former Scotland Yard Special Operative. As a result of their connection, we must now devise more ambitious methods to deal with better-organized, more sophisticated and well-financed entities, and at the same time understand that borders do not provide a barrier to counterfeiters and no country or industry is immune to the consequences of their acts. Whereas IDGLOBAL has espoused this directive since its inception and maintains that their deliverables will revolutionize border security and Brand Protection overall, we welcome this opportunity to work together toward a common goal.
We are excited to have this agreement in place with Grand ISS, stated Phil Viggiani, V.P. Sales & Marketing for IDGLOBAL Corp. Our vision of global expertise in attracting intelligence operatives with feet on the ground in over 60 countries makes Grand ISS a logical fit in taking our capabilities everywhere.
