Nimbo LLC, an IGEN Networks Company, to Launch New Automotive Wireless Services Platform at The SEMA Show From November 3-6

Tuesday, Oct 27, 2015

MURRIETA, Calif., Oct. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nimbo LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of IGEN Networks Corp (the "Company" or "IGEN") (OTCQB:IGEN) (CSE:IGN), announces it will exhibit at The SEMA Show next week from November 3 to November 6, 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and launch its new automotive wireless services platform. The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world that attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from more than 100 countries. Attendees are invited to visit Booth #11822 in the North Hall Mobile Electronics Section, a location with historically heavy traffic.

At the show, Nimbo LLC will launch a new platform targeted for the buy-here-pay-here (BHPH) market. Nimbo BHPH is a platform designed to serve the pre-owned automotive industry with over 25,000 used vehicle dealers across the United States. Buy Here Pay Here refers to a method of running an automobile dealership in which dealers themselves extend credit to purchasers of automobiles.  Typically, purchasers of cars at BHPH dealerships have poor credit history, and loans have high interest rates.   BHPH can provide options for those unable to meet credit standards elsewhere.

With the addition of Nimbo BHPH, IGEN Network Corporation now offers a complete range of wireless services for the consumer automotive industry and its dealer channels that includes:

  • New Car or Franchise Dealers
  • Pre-owned Car Dealers
  • Commercial and Automotive Fleets  

Neil G. Chan, President and CEO of IGEN, stated, "SEMA has been instrumental in establishing several of our largest distribution channels for the consumer automotive industry. We are using this event to launch a new platform, showcase upgraded products, and provide orientation for our recently acquired channel partners along with sales staff representing Verizon Wireless."

It is also noted that an interview with Mr. Chan was conducted, transcribed and posted late last week. To view, please visit http://www.equities.com/spotlight/spotlight-companies/exclusive-interview-igen-networks-ceo-neil-chan-discusses-their-plans-and-the-future-of-real-time-services-available-to-the-consumer-automotive-industry
