Mercado and Public Habit Partner to Accelerate Direct-to-Consumer…

The huge power that I think is yet to be unlocked that Mercado is onto is embedding really simple technology that is ingrained in our manufacturers because if they have visibility into demand, we can unlock so much value.

Mercado is teaming up with sustainable fashion brand Public Habit to revolutionize the way fashion is sourced, produced, and distributed throughout the international supply chain by introducing a groundbreaking 28-day or less direct-to-consumer model.

Overproduction is a huge problem for a majority of fashion brands around the world. Across the fashion industry, an average of 1 out of 3 garments produced are never even sold. This equals out to about 92,000,000 tons of textile waste that is burned or ends up in landfills every single year.

Public Habit flips the typical 9 to 18-month fashion production script on its head by producing all orders on demand, ultimately getting their entire production and delivery process — from Asia to destination — down to 28 days or less. Suppliers only manufacture quantities based on consumer purchases through the brand’s eCommerce website, eliminating waste and building a longer-lasting wardrobe for customers. Even celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and more are onboard with Public Habit’s revolutionary mission (bit.ly/2PvNg8d).

This industry-defying model hasn’t come without its challenges. In order to meet consumer demand and maintain the brand’s fast turn-around times, the business model dictated the need for a way to easily and accurately manage the end-to-end process and ensure visibility and connectivity at every step.

“Mercado was the natural choice,” Badger said. “We knew we needed a technology partner to help us seamlessly integrate our supply chain with our e-commerce business. Mercado had the same vision we did in bringing our suppliers closer to our buyers through technology.”

“We were so ecstatic to have Public Habit use Mercado because topics like Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) as well as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are crucial to our overall mission here,” said Mercado CEO Rob Garrison.

Garrison and Badger recently spoke with Sourcing Journal (bit.ly/3t4IDPX) about the effects of improving supply chain efficiency throughout the fashion industry by transforming the first mile of the supply chain.

Providing for better connectivity throughout the first mile of the supply chain means reduced lead time and enhanced visibility into customer demand — allowing Public Habit and its manufacturers to stay in the loop more easily and ultimately leading to eliminating extra inventory.

“I think about Mercado as the Shopify to our supply chain,” Badger said during the discussion. “The huge power that I think is yet to be unlocked that Mercado is onto is embedding really simple technology that is ingrained in our manufacturers because if they have visibility into demand, we can unlock so much value.”

This is crucial to Public Habit’s success. The factories they use in Asia can produce minimum order quantities of as low as one, which means Public Habit doesn’t have to worry about overstock or keeping garments in a warehouse. Their one-on-one relationships with both supplies and customers might not be traditional in the fashion industry, but is revolutionary in its efforts to reduce waste, improve supplier relationships, and increase customer satisfaction.

Through this partnership with Mercado, Public Habit believes it can better educate and inspire other companies to move toward a more efficient direct-to-consumer model, with Mercado’s leading technology platform able to support this vision and bring upstream and downstream operations together for fashion brands and those in other industries.

Service Objects

Address autocomplete capabilities have become an important part of the movement towards frictionless e-commerce. This new whitepaper will help businesses avoid common pitfalls in choosing a product.- Geoff Grow, Founder and CEO, Service Objects

Service Objects, the leading provider of real-time global contact validation solutions, is pleased to announce a free whitepaper on how to select an address autocomplete product. The whitepaper provides a detailed overview of what to look for when using these products with business applications, as well as an introduction to Service Objects’ own DOTS Global Address Complete product, the only autocomplete service with address validation built-in.

Address autocomplete capabilities for web and business forms offer dramatic improvements in productivity, address accuracy and customer experience. They can reduce the number of keystrokes needed for address entry by up to 80% by automating the selection of mailing and billing addresses, providing a more seamless experience for e-commerce applications.

However, many current autocomplete tools lack the capabilities needed for intensive ecommerce and business applications, such as apartment and suite-level addressing, international capabilities, and address validation. This new whitepaper provides a detailed overview of how autocomplete works, including business use cases, facts and statistics about address capture, and a checklist of capabilities to look for in your address autocomplete product search.

It also introduces Global Address Complete, designed from the ground up for business and e-commerce, where it can reduce cart abandonment by up to 30% and improve delivery accuracy. It provides real-time type-ahead suggestions from the first keystroke, response times as fast as 100 milliseconds, address accuracy to the apartment and suite level, and support for addresses in over 250 countries, as well as integrated CASS-certified USPS address validation.

“Address autocomplete capabilities have become an important part of the movement towards frictionless e-commerce,” notes Geoff Grow, Founder and CEO, Service Objects. “This whitepaper will help businesses avoid common pitfalls in choosing a product and shows how Global Address Complete can provide a secure, business quality solution for more accurate billing, shipping, delivery and more.”

Along with this new whitepaper, Service Objects is offering a free license key for testing Global Address Complete with up to 500 transactions, as well as expert implementation assistance, available 24/7/365 technical support, and guaranteed 99.999% uptime. For more information on Global Address Complete or any of Service Objects’ data quality products, please contact us.

Wideroe was the first airline in the world to put the Embraer E190-E2 into commercial operations.

Widerøe, Scandinavia’s largest regional carrier, will now deliver e-commerce shipments to the entire Norwegian population by leveraging its network across 42 destinations in Norway and seven abroad.

“The growth of e-commerce provides an important opportunity for airlines like Widerøe, especially in these times when revenues from passenger travel have decreased,”- Thomas Lone, Widerøe Cargo

SmartKargo, a leading Cloud provider of air cargo solutions that extend markets for global airlines, has announced the successful Go-live of its state-of-the-art e-commerce shipping solution for Norwegian-based Widerøe Airlines. The partnership enables Widerøe to take a giant leap and empowers entry into the promising e-commerce shipping and delivery market.

Widerøe will now deliver e-commerce shipments to the entire Norwegian population by leveraging its network across 42 destinations in Norway and seven abroad. The Cloud solution also gives Widerøe seamless connections with a range of airline interline and ground delivery partners while also providing direct connectivity with major e-commerce retail sites.

SmartKargo introduced the innovative e-commerce solution last year to enable global airlines to open new revenue streams with e-commerce shipping and package delivery, which is projected to accelerate from an estimated $5 trillion sales globally this year to $6.4 trillion in 2024.

“The growth of e-commerce provides an important opportunity for airlines like Widerøe, especially in these times when revenues from passenger travel have decreased,” said Thomas Lone, Widerøe’s Cargo Manager. “SmartKargo integrates all of our partners and enables us to more fully utilize the cargo capacity of our aircraft, to leverage our strong brand throughout Norway and generate the higher yields from integrated logistics,” he added.

SmartKargo technology can be integrated with an airline’s existing cargo operating system and software, using a wide range of APIs to enable implementation in only a few months.

“We are thrilled to have Widerøe as our newest client and trust that with our disruptive technology, Widerøe will be able to fast-track its Cargo revenue growth by extending their traditional Cargo services to current clients by tapping into the fast-growing market demand for e-commerce distribution service,” said Olivier Houri, SmartKargo’s Chief Revenue Officer.

“The SmartKargo platform can be set up and launched quickly. In our case, we moved from imagining the product to Go-live in only three months,” said Thomas Lone. “Their flexible approach means the e-commerce solution can wrap around existing air cargo systems, but in our case, we preferred to upgrade and implemented the full-suite of SmartKargo solutions, which included our Cargo Client Portal http://flydet.no website, which will be transformative for us,” he added.

“The innovative solution is the first of its kind in the industry’” said Milind Tavshikar, Chief Executive Officer for SmartKargo. “The transaction begins at the shopping cart in a browser and sets the logistics process in motion, creating the shipping order and driving the service level agreement seamlessly from the initial transaction through transport and delivery to the customer’s door. SmartKargo solutions are providing a compelling shipping method for online retailers to ship directly using capacity on commercial airlines, at a time that e-commerce shipping is in high demand worldwide,” he added.

SmartKargo also provides a seamless airline interline network that is proprietary, with front-end sales rating and pricing, revenue management, cargo revenue accounting, warehouse management, claims support, and more. SmartKargo is currently the world’s only Technology and Service provider with such a comprehensive, seamless shipping solution for Airlines across traditional air cargo and e-commerce models.

MILLIONS.co Launches Social E-commerce Platform to Connect Athletes To…

Avatar

Published

on

“The professional sports industry is rapidly changing,” says Bruce Buffer, MILLIONS.co co-founder. “What athletes need now is a radical shift, to take back control of their careers and their relationship with fans all over the world.”

MILLIONS.co is launching a powerful social e-commerce and fan engagement platform with a focus on combat sports with an expansion into other sports verticals in the near future. The company is co-founded by international sports and entertainment announcer Bruce Buffer, the legendary “Voice Of Mixed Martial Arts” and four entrepreneurs who share a love for sports. Matt Whitteker, a supply chain technology entrepreneur, philanthropist and founder of $1B+ Assent Compliance, his brother Scott Whitteker who runs the world’s largest charity boxing event FIGHT FOR THE CURE, Brandon Austin former co-founder of GoFish Cam, as well as e-commerce pioneer and tech investor Adrian Salamunovic who has deep experience in on-demand printing and boot-strapped his previous DTC (Direct-to-consumer) company CanvasPop to 8-figure sales before raising venture capital.

MILLIONS.co enables any athlete to leverage their existing fan base and social media followers to create and control their own revenue streams. Fans will be able to support their favorite athletes, purchase exclusive products, access private WatchStream™ (interactive video streaming) and AMAs (Ask Me Anything) all from one page, creating a ‘viral social commerce loop’. With an initial focus on combat sports, MILLIONS.co will be looking to extend partnership opportunities to established and rising stars within popular team sports leagues such as the NBA, NFL, NHL and eventually international sports such as golf, soccer and cricket.

Combat sports is one of the largest and fastest growing sports categories in the world. Just under half (48 percent) of Americans ages 12 and older are fans of fighting sports. While the top 1% of star athletes like Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are earning millions of dollars per year, the average pro boxer earns only $35,000 a year and even for a UFC fighter the median income is just $68,000 per year.

Many fighters are dedicating their lives and risking their health to entertain fans yet earn less than the average American.

Similar to how top tier fighters like Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have their own e-commerce merchandise brands and stores, TMT and August McGregor, the MILLIONS.co platform will allow any pro combat athlete to essentially do the same. Each store will be fighter-owned but operated in partnership with the MILLIONS.co network with the majority of the profits going to the fighter.

The 2021 Sports Industry Outlook from Deloitte says, “Sports leagues and athletes also should move beyond traditional broadcasts and start interacting directly with their fans. For example, they should encourage their athletes to become increasingly active on social media year-round to maximize fan engagement and monetization opportunities.”

A Fan Experience survey from Deloitte also uncovered that over 60% of fans agree that having a “year-round experience” would make them feel more engaged with their team in future seasons, and a further 55% said that they would be more likely to purchase tickets to said events.

According to MILLIONS.co’s data, the average top 100 boxer has over 500,000 followers on Instagram and the top 300 boxers have over 40,000 followers each. The majority of the profits will go directly to the fighter with the difference going to the platform to cover printing, fulfillment and operational costs.

“Our mission is singular, we want to make fighters more money, help them connect directly with their fans and allow them to focus on their sport while we take care of everything else,” says Matt Whitteker, CEO of MILLIONS.co. “It’s a win-win for the fighters and for millions of sport fans around the world. We’re going to help disrupt the way athletes and fans connect in a very positive way.”

“The professional sports industry is rapidly changing,” says Bruce Buffer, MILLIONS.co co-founder, “What athletes need now is a radical shift, to take back control of their careers and their relationship with fans all over the world. I think MILLIONS.co is the platform that we’ve all been waiting for.”

“I make way more money sitting at home posting pictures on Instagram than I do fighting,” says Page VanZant, a UFC and BKF fighter who has 2.3 million Instagram followers. “The thing with fighting is you never know how long you have in the career. I could get hurt and never fight again. It’s all about setting yourself up for the successes outside of the cage as well.”

The website has launched with over 100 pro combat athletes including Albert “The Prince” Bell, MMA fighter Bryce Mitchell, Undefeated Pro boxer Chris Colbert, top 10 in the world Welterweight Custio Clayton and Floyd Mayweather’s recently signed fighter, Jalil Hackett. Each athlete is promoting their stores on their Instagram accounts, now fans and fighters can visit MILLIONS.co to connect directly with the athletes, purchase merchandise, custom shoutouts and sign up for future announcements.

About MILLIONS.co

MILLIONS.co (http://www.MILLIONS.co) is a powerful end-to-end social e-commerce platform for professional boxers and MMA fighters to sell custom branded merchandise and connect with millions of combat fans around the world.
