April 27, 2011- MISSION VIEJO, CA—5BARz International Inc. (OTC.BB: BARZ) (hereafter “5BARz” or the “Company”) announced today that it has signed an agreement with AeroVoice, an El Segundo, California-based Company, to execute fulfillment services for sales of 5BARz products.
AeroVoice will provide supply chain and logistical services including but not limited to order taking, warehousing, inventory management, packaging, labeling, shipping, and invoicing of 5BARz products to designated purchasers of the product, such as stores, service centers, agents and retailers. The agreement also addresses the provision of warranty services. This fulfillment agreement is a key piece of 5BARz International’s channel marketing strategy and expands the reach of 5BARz product distribution to include all 50 states, D.C., U.S. Territories & Possessions, as well as Military Bases and U.S. Embassies abroad.
AeroVoice is a leading technology sales, marketing and logistics company with a strong customer base of national retailers, agent-dealers, RSA (Rural Service Area) and RCA (Rural Cellular Association) carriers and network operator resellers. They are authorized distributors of LG Electronics, Samsung PCD, ZTE and Novatel among others. AeroVoice has also been provisioned as an Authorized Service Center (ASC) for many of their OEM partners. AeroVoice works closely with their OEM partners to offer customers with unique marketing and launch programs, resources and tools for a full circle of product support. The company has two fully operational facilities centrally located to support customers nationwide.
“Working with a company like AeroVoice gives us the opportunity to effectively service consumers, and to build strategic relationships with existing AeroVoice clients,” says Mr. Daniel S. Bland, president CEO of 5barz International. “The potential to build relationships with groups like the RSA (Rural Service Area) carriers and network operator resellers to offer 5BARz products on a greater scale is very attractive, and is in line with 5BARz International’s business development plans to service these target markets. By operating through a common service provider like AeroVoice we can potentially streamline operations and negotiate better terms with our strategic partners.”
5BARz International is the exclusive global distributor of a proprietary line of award-winning 5BARz Cellular Network Extenders developed by CelLynx. 5BARz patent pending products provide the first plug and play, consumer electronic product that will capture cell signal, amplify it and resend that signal all within a device the size of a clock radio. The Company is preparing to launch sales of its first product, the 5BARz Road Warrior, this year.
“Our agreement with AeroVoice is a critical step in establishing channels to bring the 5BARz Road Warrior to market,” continues Daniel Bland. “The ever-present problem of poor cellular reception, especially indoors, in vehicles and in remote areas offers a huge market for the 5BARz Road Warrior, and AeroVoice’s flexibility, strong relationships and industry experience make them our number one choice for carrier fulfillment to service our future customers.”
