Warp 9 Completes Mobile E-Commerce Site for International Fashion Designer

Marissa Collections Launches New WarpMobile Magento Mobile Site to Increase Mobile Revenue and Enhance Customer Experience

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2014) - Warp 9, Inc. (OTCQB: WNYN), the premier provider of mobile and digital commerce solutions for midsize online sellers, today announced the launch of a WarpMobile Magento mobile e-commerce website for Marissa Collections, a highly acclaimed destination boutique and online store for some of the most popular high-end fashion brands for men and women.

For the past 38 years, Marissa Collections has provided an international client-base with hand-selected items including clothing, jewelry, shoes and accessories. The brand is host to several in-store boutiques from popular big name retailers including Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Brunello Cucinelli, and more. More recently, the brand has expanded into the e-commerce space while further developing their social footprint, highlighted by its Facebook page, which boasts approximately 25,000 followers.

Warp 9 designed and developed the mobile site using its WarpMobile Magento solution, a rapid development framework for adding powerful mobile websites to any Magento e-commerce store. The goal of the mobile site was to increase conversion rates, provide customizable mobile marketing solutions for the brand, and streamline the online customer experience. It was essential to finalize the project before the holidays, following a 2013 Black Friday that saw U.S. sales over mobile devices jump nearly 43%, accounting for an overall 22% of all site sales. Many industry analysts expect this trend to continue, sending online retailers scrambling for cost-efficient and highly customizable mobile commerce solutions.

"Marissa Collections has built its reputation upon having not only a strong product, but possessing great client relations," said Andrew Van Noy, CEO of Warp 9. "As retailers evolve from focusing only on brick and mortar marketing and sales to placing a greater emphasis on the online space, it is essential to have a mobile solution that will engage customers and make it easier for them to shop on the go. We are confident that the WarpMobile Magento solution is a perfect fit for Marissa Collections, allowing them to market more efficiently to its mobile clients and provide stronger client service by enhancing the online experience -- both of which will result in increased revenue generation."

Earlier this year, Warp 9 launched WarpMobile Magento, a rapid development framework for adding powerful mobile websites to any Magento e-commerce store. By using WarpMobile, Warp 9 ensures online retailers are able to keep up with current trends in the online retail space. WarpMobile was implemented specifically to serve the 240,000 businesses currently using the Magento e-commerce platform, of which approximately 85%-90% do not have a mobile site.
