MARKHAM, ON--(Marketwired - April 04, 2016) - Vernon Technology Solutions (VTS) has partnered with Brightbox Inc. to provide secure mobile device charging stations to the Canadian market. Through this partnership VTS expands its existing line of innovative charging solutions to fulfill the needs of a growing market that increases its dependency on mobile technology year after year.

Brightbox charging stations have been adopted by conference organizers, airlines, universities, professional sports organizations and large hospitality clients because they provide worry-free mobile device charging, freeing the user to do something else and ensuring that staff are not baby-sitting charging cellphones.

"Brightbox, the global leader in secure smartphone charging stations and kiosks, is delighted to announce an event technology partnership with Vernon Technology Solutions of Canada," said Billy Gridley, Chief Executive Officer of Brightbox. "Vernon will be given direct access to the Brightbox platform, to manage its own video content and brand messaging, access reporting data and analytics, and remotely support their Brightbox fleet for their event activations," Billy added.

In addition to charging mobile devices, the large, interactive touchscreen interface offers video and slide show capabilities to deliver direct sponsor messaging, conduct surveys, brand offerings, and publicize special promotions and events. It's also extremely effective at providing custom analytics specific to the sponsor's engagement objectives.

"We chose Brightbox because of its proven platform solution and technology leadership in the field. No other charging company opens their platform to clients, and offers a similar wealth of proven content management, data acquisition, audience measurement and reporting features," said James Drohan, VP of Business Development at VTS.
