Dallas, Texas (July 6 , 2011) – StockGuru shines its Spotlight on MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) that announced on July 5, 2011, that PCS International, Inc., a Texas-based reseller of cellular and related wireless products and services, has entered into a distribution agreement with MMRGlobal to sell MMRPro, the Company’s document management and imaging system, to healthcare professionals, small hospitals, clinics, surgery centers, law firms and accountants. PCS will also offer the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (www.mmrvideos.com) direct to consumers in 11 retail locations as an upgrade to other wireless offerings, including Smartphones and Tablet PCs. The Company closed on July 5, 2011, at $0.045 trading on volume of roughly 269,000 shares.
PCS has provided services to more than 120,000 customer accounts and will begin direct sales of MMRPro to selected clients immediately. PCS has 14 key account sales executives that are exclusively focused on business-to-business sales in addition to 11 retail locations with more than 50 sales representatives.
The non-exclusive agreement calls for the immediate purchase of $415,000 in MMRPro systems plus additional revenue through physician deployment of the MMRPro Stimulus Program and through the offering of the MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record at retail. MMR began delivery of MMRPro systems during the second quarter, with the remaining portion to be shipped after the Company receives the MMRPro 550MDP which utilizes the newly released Kodak Scan Station 550.
Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO, said, “We congratulate PCS for having the vision to be the first wireless distributor to sell healthcare to business and direct to consumers. This makes PCS the first to offer MMRPro and our MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record through the wireless channel. MMR’s management has a great deal of experience in selling services at retail in office superstores, mass merchandisers and the postal service. These services include both the Shachihata Xstamper and the largest prepaid calling card now operated by AT&T. We have the knowledge, infrastructure and manufacturer’s rep organization to become a leading provider of personal health records sold at retail. What we learn from PCS will be used in launching an expanded retail sales program, which we plan on introducing at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2012. Our program with PCS is an opportunity for us to beta test what we see as representing the future of healthcare at retail.”
According to Muzaffar Vohra, President of PCS International, “After careful review of the products and services offered by MMR, we decided to enter into this agreement. We believe this represents a unique opportunity and we intend to leverage our resources to make it a success for both parties. We are also planning to encourage smaller retailers to offer the Personal Health Record products under our agreement.”
MMRPro (www.mmrprovideos.com) is a document management and imaging system originally designed as a first step in transitioning healthcare professionals to Electronic Medical Records (EMR). MMRPro helps physicians’ lawyers and accountants securely and cost-effectively convert paper-based records into digital, easily managed and accessible files. The system also includes the MMRPro Stimulus Program for healthcare professionals which can generate many times more revenue for physicians than government stimulus programs without the requirement to accept Medicare and other government programs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ-SZcGvNjw).
