Calgary, Canada – January 24, 2018 – DeepMarkit Corp., (“DeepMarkit” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:MKT OTCQB:MKTDF) announces that it has received the International Search Report and Written Opinion issued by the International Searching Authority regarding its International Patent Application No. CA2017/050687. The patent application covers the unique game customization capabilities of the DeepMarkit gamification platform for advertising, marketing and promotions.
The Company is pleased to report that the authorized officer of the report (essentially, the international patent examiner) has found that all the claimed subject matter is novel and inventive over the prior art uncovered by the search. In view of this positive result, it is now possible to ‘fast-track’ the specific patent application process in many countries, under something called the Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) agreement, including in Canada, the United States, Europe,
Australia and several others.
The Company is also pleased to report that its Gamify App, specifically for Shopify, has been submitted for approval and implementation. The Shopify team will conduct its standard review of the App prior to it becoming publicly available. Publication of the Gamify App in the Shopify app store will immediately follow a satisfactory review process. The Gamify App for use on other e-commerce platforms, websites and in-store promotions is nearing completion and will
be released on the DeepMarkit website in the coming weeks.
The Gamify App provides merchants with the ability to leverage games to convert their store visitors into customers. The key features of the app are its ease of use and affordability. Merchants can have a branded game which delivers purchase incentives up and running in a matter of only minutes. The Gamify App combines customer engagement and entertainment with merchant branding, data collection and purchase incentives.
