Tampa, FL, Dec. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovative Software Technologies, Inc. (OTC:INIV.PK) announces that LifeSprings, a division of the United Pentecostal Foundation, has entered into a strategic partnership with Opt-in SMART, Innovative's premier business platform. This partnership will benefit the foundation, which provides full-service business support for the long-term stability and growth of the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI).

Opt-in SMART's marketing platform will help grow small businesses within the church's network by leveraging the propriety SMART technology.

"LifeSprings is dedicated to building local businesses and helping UPCI's mission projects," said Stephen Drury, President/Director of the United Pentecostal Foundation. "This relationship is significant for the foundation, as Opt-in SMART is pledging a portion of the proceeds to our missions and humanitarian work."

"We are very excited about the opportunity to work with the UPCI, in conjunction with LifeSprings. With more than 4,000 churches in the U.S. alone, this will propel Innovative and its subsidiaries into the national arena," said Jake Wand, Executive Vice President of Innovative Software Technologies.

"We will grow our company while giving back and supporting initiatives of thousands of business owners within the United Pentecostal Foundation and local community," said Paul Mazzapica, President of Opt-in SMART. 

About UPCI and LifeSprings

The purpose of the United Pentecostal Church International (www.upci.org) is to carry the whole gospel to the whole world by the whole church; to establish an effective organized effort; to encourage the opening and establishing of new works; to evangelize the world by every means possible; and to produce and maintain a clean ministry and fellowship. LifeSprings (www.unitedpentecostalfoundation.com/lifesprings) was formed by a group of business leaders for the purpose of creating new business ventures to help fund the ministries of the UPCI outside of the present streams of income. These business ventures can be either an acquisition of an existing business or a new start-up business enterprise. LifeSprings is made up of individuals who are interested in helping create these new streams of income by offering their education, experience, expertise and connections to help others be successful. In return for this assistance from LifeSprings members, the business is expected to give 50% of its profit, after paying back investment capital, to the United Pentecostal Foundation to fund areas of ministry as selected by the business owner and/or its board or investors.
