Warp 9 Comments on Recent E-Commerce Industry Moves

By Taking Aim at Amazon, Google, Walmart and Nordstrom Are Breeding Competition That Will Benefit Both Consumers and the E-Commerce Industry

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - June 09, 2015) - Warp 9, Inc. (OTCQB: WNYN), the premier provider of mobile and e-commerce solutions for midsize online sellers, today commented on the recent reports of new e-commerce initiatives from several of the world's top retailers and tech companies.

Three of the world's most well known brands, Google, Walmart and Nordstrom, appear to be bolstering their e-commerce efforts in an attempt to rival industry leader Amazon. It was reported last week that Google was launching buy buttons on its search-result pages, starting with searches on mobile devices. Meanwhile, Walmart is reportedly gearing up to offer a fast home delivery service that will potentially rival Amazon Prime. Luxury retailer Nordstrom also recently laid out a five-year plan for e-commerce expansion, putting a heavy emphasis on digital sales growth.

"Amazon has long been the recognized leader in e-commerce, so it's very positive to see other major brands stepping up their offerings and expanding their businesses in that area," said Andrew Van Noy, CEO, Warp 9. "Competition brings out the best in business, and we're certainly starting to see the top brands and retailers set their sights on each other to provide the top consumer e-commerce experience imaginable."

The U.S. e-commerce is in excess of $300 billion, so it's no surprise that brands and retailers are doing whatever they can to get a substantial piece of the pie. Recent emphasis on technologies like mobile have become increasingly important, as retailers are forced to focus attention on the devices consumers use most, while also creating a tremendous business opportunity for solutions providers in the e-commerce space.

"The additional options are obviously great for the consumer, but the impact on Warp 9 will be very positive, as retailers will be looking to solutions providers to enhance their current e-commerce offerings to meet and exceed current standards," said Van Noy. "This industry growth puts Warp 9 in an exciting position moving forward as we continue to add customers and positively impact our own business. Competition creates need, and we intend to be there to fill that need."

Warp 9 previously announced its strategy to grow the company through strategic acquisitions, an approach that has been validated by several e-commerce giants that have increased their service offerings through the acquisition of smaller companies.
