MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Surge Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SURG), the Memphis-based Technology, Telecom and Blockchain FinTech Software Company, is pleased to announce the completion of a definitive agreement with AATAC to place SurgePays in up to 40,000 convenience and general retail outlets by year-end 2019.

AATAC is one of the nation’s largest private trade associations spanning over 80,000 stores across the United States. The group forms relationships with corporate suppliers for the benefit of their retailer network, supports the various suppliers, hosts tradeshows and private meetings. The rollout will launch in Florida, Virginia and Texas then expand to other territories in strategic phases. The target goal is 3,000 to 5,000 locations a month with an estimated completion of the national rollout of up to 40,000 locations by year-end 2019. The next phase would be introducing SurgePays to the remaining retail locations in the AATAC network. Michael Hennessey, Associate Director of AATAC stated; “Our mission is to represent the industry and assist members in increasing their effectiveness and profitability to help them prosper. We seek to offer the most effective solutions and only recommend the best products and services to our members. Surge is an ideal partner for us, not only providing top quality, value and level of service for their telecom and FinTech products, but also a new technology marketplace that can help enhance our communication and efficiency with our retail network and the new programs we rollout.” AATAC reps will soon be activating sites where they’ll deliver Surge Volt Androids and help train merchants on the SurgePays Blockchain Portal while also installing point of sale and awareness advertising materials. The merchant will use the portal, with image driven navigation similar to a website interface, to activate SurgePhone Wireless customers, add wireless minutes to SurgePhone customers or customers of any pay as you go wireless carrier and also load debit cards, etc. What makes SurgePays unique is that the portal also offers the merchant a wholesale marketplace interface to order consumable goods from regional manufacturers that are now able to distribute their products nationwide.
