SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2014) - Warp 9, Inc. (OTCQB: WNYN), the premier provider of mobile and e-commerce solutions for midsize online sellers, today reviewed its year-to-date rapid growth rate and future plans for mobile commerce.
"We are pleased with the growth of Warp 9 during the past 2-3 quarters," said Andrew Van Noy, CEO of Warp 9. "During that period of time, we successfully migrated all of our legacy e-commerce customers from our old technology platform to Magento, a state-of-the-art enterprise grade e-commerce platform. In addition, we moved all of the sites of our existing base of customers from our old datacenter to a highly scalable and robust cloud-based hosting environment. This has allowed us to focus all of our energy on delivering powerful mobile and e-commerce solutions to our customers who are now reaping the benefits."
Mr. Van Noy continued, "We are highly focused on Magento and other powerful mobile and e-commerce platforms, and we are seeing rapid sales growth. Currently, we are experiencing a quarter-over-quarter customer acquisition growth rate of over 60% since the beginning of our fiscal year. These new customers are excited about our service offering and expertise, and a majority of them are increasing their service contracts with us after only 30 days."
Among the most common requests Warp 9 receives from retailers and wholesalers are for mobile e-commerce website that can seamlessly integrate their business processes and increase their sales. "Mobile is huge right now," says Van Noy. "Our Customers are seeing as much as 50% of their traffic coming from smartphones. Implementing a mobile commerce site, which we can complete rapidly, is significantly increasing their conversion rates and sales, as well as our own revenue."
To keep up with this growth in new business, Warp 9 has hired additional key team members within the past two months. Mr. Van Noy commented, "These new team members have integrated smoothly with our existing team and their experience is already proving to be extremely valuable to both Warp 9 and our customers. In addition, to keep up with this growth trajectory, we are planning on hiring more team members in the next quarter. "
"The future is bright," says Van Noy. "As consumer shopping trends continue to move online, both wholesalers and retailers are being forced to improve their e-commerce and mobile commerce strategies. We expect the demand for our services to increase over the next few years, as more money and focus are put into e-commerce."
