Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, June 22, 2023 – Global Compliance Applications Corp. (“GCAC” or the “Company”) (CSE: APP, FSE: 2FA, OTCQB: FUAPF), a leading chain-of-custody compliance and data platform, is pleased to announce the signing of an Uplift Application Licensing Agreement with Kroniclez, a licensed retail cannabis establishment in Waterloo, Ontario Canada . This significant agreement marks the first integration of the Uplift NFT coupon system on the Efixii blockchain in a retail environment.
Kroniclez is strategically located across the street from Wilfred Laurier University  with over 20,000 students. Additionally, they will actively participate in the Citizen Green Project, offering exclusive deals to Canadian veterans. With over 149,000 veterans residing in the Province of Ontario, this collaboration holds immense potential .
Kroniclez will be able to create NFT coupons for non-cannabis-regulated products and discounts on shipping. The benefits of using the Uplift NFT coupon system  over traditional coupons are substantial. Kroniclez and other cannabis retailers gain a competitive edge through increased foot traffic and additional sales opportunities. By redeeming NFT coupons, retailers attract new customers who tend to make supplementary purchases, leading to enhanced sales figures. Uplift's blockchain infrastructure eliminates the need for costly APIs, making implementation a breeze and requires minimal staff training. Customers can conveniently redeem coupons by scanning a QR code, ensuring seamless transactions.
We are confident that this strategic partnership with GCAC will solidify our position in the market and strengthen our commitment to customer satisfaction.Manpreet Cheema, Owner of Kroniclez.
With NFTs on the secure Efixii blockchain, fraud becomes non-existent, guaranteeing the utmost coupon security. For brands wishing to participate the utilization of US Digital Currency enables immediate settlement between retailers and brands, eliminating the necessity of a clearinghouse. By offering coupon redemption, Kroniclez enhances customer relationships, fostering customer satisfaction and boosting overall sales.
"As the owner of Kroniclez, I am thrilled to introduce this innovative solution to build our retail cannabis business and simultaneously contribute value to Canadian veterans, all within the restrictive framework of marketing rules in Canada," said Manpreet Cheema, Owner of Kroniclez. “We are confident that this strategic partnership with GCAC will solidify our position in the market and strengthen our commitment to customer satisfaction."
