SANTIAGO, CHILE and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/04/09 -- ImmersiFind Inc., the leading enabler of multi-platform local search solutions for the local search publisher community, announced today that it has signed a multi-year agreement to license its full suite of local search platforms to La Gran Guia S.A.

All platforms offer leading edge technology and are designed to facilitate the publisher's entry into the multi-platform world.

"We are delighted to have www.amarillas.com and La Gran Guia as our newest ImmersiFind customer. Throughout our discussions with them, I was very impressed with their energy and desire to succeed within the new media world and it is clear that the Gran Guia team have fully embraced the enormous technology shift to the online and mobile worlds. Their outstanding management team have enabled them to quickly become the dominant directory publisher in Chile and we couldn't be happier having them as a client. We look forward to several years of local search success together," said David Charron, Vice-President and General Manager of ImmersiFind Inc (www.immersifind.com).

Fulvio Stacchetti, General Manager of La Gran Guia added, "We looked around at our options and came to the conclusion that ImmersiFind speaks our language and really acts as a technology partner, as opposed to just a technology provider. Being in the publishing industry themselves makes us feel comfortable that they live and breathe our business and their platform has been successfully tested with bonafide results. I was impressed with their model, their people and level of support that they can give us even if we are countries apart."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
