Buffalo Pacific Raises $5M for Community Portal to Deliver Expert Services Via Telepresence

February 12, 2018 | Telepresence Options


Troy, Ohio (February 6, 2018) - Buffalo Pacific LLC announced today that it has opened its first Community Portal of its nationwide outreach vision, located in Troy, Ohio. The Troy Community Portal is the world's first telepresence-enabled facility that combines financial, education and health/ wellness services within a single site to provide access to experts around the world using "Holographical RealityTM". This futuristic technology, innovated by Buffalo Pacific and our subsidiary TelePresence Tech, is protected by 13 U.S. patents and one European Union patent and serves as the centerpiece of Buffalo Pacific's Community Portals.

"Our vision for providing distributed access to key services that every citizen needs has fueled our purpose. The Troy Community Portal is the culmination of a long-standing strategy to implement our revolutionary Holographical RealityTM patent portfolio within the architecture of Community Portals built by Buffalo Pacific. The BP Portals will provide communities with access to services by experts and professionals from around the world with an immersive telepresence experience," said Mr. David Allen, Chairman and CEO of Buffalo Pacific.

Conveniently located a quarter mile off Route 41 on Experiment Farm Road in Troy, community members can visit the Buffalo Pacific Community Portal and in one single location, access experts in:

  • Financial Services: Tax preparation and planning services are currently available; banking, lending and investment and insurance services are coming soon.
  • Education: Event and meeting space, certificate programs, workforce development, 2- and 4-year degree programs. Graduate programs coming soon.
  • Health/Wellness: Services include primary physician care, health specialists, behavioral health, therapy, integrative health services and functional wellness services.

Access to key services now extends beyond the barriers of geographical distance by transmitting life- sized, true-depth holographic images of experts to customers for live interaction in real time. Most importantly, the participants do not need to travel long distance or wear 3D glasses or headsets and can make aligned eye contact to engage in natural human interaction. This vision is being achieved with the high-definition 3D telepresence within the Buffalo Pacific Community Portals.

The 8,000 square-foot Buffalo Pacific Portal transforms banking, education and health/wellness care by increasing customer access to services from these "telepresence centers." The BP Community Portal is becoming a local community asset and central access point to key services for the area and is already widely known for its distinctive blue dome.

Buffalo Pacific has secured leases with a variety of financial service, education and healthcare providers who believe that the Omni-Series will give their firm the opportunity to better serve their consumers while generating new relationships from new communities and solidifying their distributed access, all while saving operational dollars for the providers. Omni Wellness Group and Omni Financial Group, each leasing one-third of the Troy Portal, are committed to "tag along" with each and every community Portal as Buffalo Pacific grows.

With the first Portal now complete, Buffalo Pacific is ramping up plans for the next series of Portal openings. Buffalo Pacific has secured the capital formation services of US Capital Partners, an international investment banking firm, located in San Francisco, to raise $12M to support BP's growth vision, through a Private Placement Memorandum offering.

By offering expert services under one roof, the Portal will provide the foundation for the company's significant growth and sustained excellence. Buffalo Pacific intends to completely change the world of banking, education and healthcare by increasing customer access to a service experience like no other, available in community portals that will be convenient and accessible nationally.
