ERF Wireless (OTCBB:ERFW), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless and broadband products and services, announced today executives from the company’s Enterprise Network Services (ENS) Division recently attended the 2008 Independent Community Bankers Association (ICBA) Tech World in Orlando, Florida. The company’s objective at this banking convention was to introduce a national audience to its capability to design and implement secure, wireless broadband banking networks.
According to Debbie Kiewit, Marketing Coordinator for the ENS Division, “With more than 300 exhibiting companies vying for attention, we knew the challenge was to get the bankers into our booth long enough to engage them in a conversation about ERF Wireless’ BranchNet and associated products. We did that by displaying a national map depicting all community banks of 50 branches or less on a 61″ plasma screen that enabled us to drill down to each individual bank. They loved seeing their banks on the large screen. We then had ample opportunity to share our vision and product offerings with them. It was a great example of a technology company using exciting technology.”
“We’ve been developing a strategy for scaling up our business to facilitate entry into the national market for the last year,” said Mike Moehle, EVP Marketing and Sales for the ENS Division. “Our participation in ICBA’s Tech World was the first step in that direction.”
Moehle went on to note that the ERF Wireless team met for the first time with a number of banks from the northern and western part of the United States, and reconnected with several of the banks in the south that had already been visited by the company. “Many of the bankers we met had heard about ERF Wireless and were very curious about our advanced banking products,” said Moehle.
“ICBA is very important to our business,” added Moehle. “We’re currently Gold Members and we’ll be working to enhance our relationship with this leading banking organization as we expand across the nation. Regardless of location, bankers realize the need for affordable, high-capacity bandwidth and the idea of secure wireless networking is rapidly gaining acceptance. And, as the leading provider of this technology to the banking community, ERF Wireless is enjoying a dramatic increase in inquiries and presentation opportunities.”
