Warp 9 Launches Mobile E-Commerce Solution for Tactical Distributors

Tactical Distributors Unveils New Mobile Commerce Site to Provide Online Buyers With a Better Alternative for the Upcoming Holiday Shopping Season

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2014) - Warp 9, Inc. (OTCQB: WNYN), the premier provider of mobile and digital commerce solutions for midsize online sellers, today announced the launch of the WarpMobile Magento mobile e-commerce website for Tactical Distributors, a popular online seller of high-end tactical equipment including apparel, electronics, and home goods.

Founded in 2006, Tactical Distributors LLC was originally a wholesale distributor that recently expanded into the retail market. The company offers high-end apparel, footwear, cameras, knives, tools, lighting, and other accessories through household brands such as Arc'teryx, Under Armour, Benchmade, Surefire, Pelican, EOTech, G-Shock and others.

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 new mobile site was implemented to increase conversion rates and enhance the customer's online shopping experience, while helping to sustain the growth Tactical Distributors has experienced over the past few years within the retail market.

In addition to providing a simple, streamlined mobile checkout process for customers, Tactical Distributors can now easily manage mobile specific promotions and sales campaigns -- an essential strategic tool as the 2014 holiday sales season approaches. U.S. sales over mobile devices jumped 43 percent on Black Friday and 55 percent on Cyber Monday, year-over-year, in 2013. By possessing the ability to customize their own mobile marketing and sales initiatives, Tactical Distributors will be better positioned to take advantage of the holiday season and drive revenue.

"Tactical Distributors has seen great success since entering the retail space, and is now well equipped to meet the growing demand of consumers looking to access its product line on their mobile devices," said Andrew Van Noy, CEO of Warp 9. "Using WarpMobile Magento as their mobile commerce solution provides Tactical Distributors with an affordable and scalable platform that is highly customizable, while helping to increase market share and revenue generation -- especially during the highly active holiday retail season. It was key for them to be able to quickly build a mobile site that was integrated into all of their back end systems, without having to re-build their desktop site."

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 that 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.
