FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GuaranteedPROS, Inc. announced it has signed a financial advisory agreement with Panamax Capital, LLC, with broker dealer services provided by Partner Capital Group, LLC, as its strategic partner in capital funding to launch its innovative ad/tech online resource that connects consumers to qualified professionals and experts offering a wide range of practices and services in their community. The initial seed round raise of $2 million will be primarily for marketing, patent technology, development and staff. This online resource, GPROSplus.com, will be free for consumers and will be subscriber-based for participating professionals. It will help consumers quickly locate top professionals offering legal, medical, financial and lifestyle services in their immediate area. "We are ready," said Pat Patregnani, CEO of GuaranteedPROS, Inc. "We believe our commitment to the professionals we serve and the consumers who need a trusted source will transform how consumers engage professionals in a modern, mobile, social, and digital world," he said. "I also want to acknowledge with great pride our team of marketing, customer service and technology experts, all of whom have dedicated themselves to this venture." Patregnani also commented, "I believe that marketing and advertising for professionals today requires a shift from its current state, especially the distress messaging, to one that enhances the professional image they deserve. Our research indicates such, both from the vast majority of consumers to most of the professionals we spoke with. We understand this approach may have its place and drives business, but this type of advertising has a negative impact on the overall professional category. It compromises the profession, consumer trust and respect. It will not be our style," he emphasized.
