MMRGlobal Announces $5 Million Multi-Channel Rapid Revenue Program
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 --
Robert H. Lorsch, Chairman and CEO of MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR"), a leading provider of Personal Health Records (PHRs), MyEsafeDepositBox storage solutions and electronic document management and imaging systems for healthcare professionals, today reported that in January 2012 just prior to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Company began an internal project named "Rapid Revenue" launching eight vertical business opportunities designed to deliver Personal Health Records directly into the hands of consumers. Rich Teich, who has worked with Mr. Lorsch for more than 34 years, has rejoined MMRGlobal to oversee the project.
The verticals that Rich Teich is actively managing are independent pharmacies, pharmacy chains and other mass merchandisers, visiting nurses, caregivers, patient advocates, in-home sales affiliates, hospitals and medical supply companies.
Based on its current sales pipeline, the Company believes it will generate in excess of $5 million by the end of 2012 from just the independent pharmacies, visiting nurses, caregivers, patient advocates and in-home sales affiliate verticals. This amount does not include revenue from major pharmacies and mass merchandisers as well as revenue from existing agreements, other channels and licensing. The independent pharmacy segment is based on 23,000 potential outlets with less than 5% market penetration.
"I came on board just prior to the Consumer Electronics Show to help launch the Company's Prepaid Personal Health Record card and accelerate sales of our products and services in eight vertical markets," said Teich. "My objective is to drive revenue quickly while allowing the Company to focus on its many larger strategic, government, international and licensing opportunities such as the MMR's agreements with Chartis Insurance, MedicAlert, Unis-Tonghe in China and VisiInc in Australia, which take long periods of time and significant capital to incubate and develop to their full revenue potential."
"We are also in the process of building the national sales rep organization that will take us to the large chain pharmacies and mass retailers," Teich added. "Our success with independent pharmacies will help facilitate our acceptance in that channel as well."
