Wow! April 29th, this is ridiculous. Time is going by so fast. I still haven’t gotten over christmas shopping, and we are already a third of the way there again. Anyway, enough of my rambling.
2010 is going to be a really exciting year for MultiCOLOR Media. We’ve got lots of things in the works and we’re always coming up with new stuff to do/offer. Here are just a few things to look forward to:
I know I’ve said it before, but really, we are so close to making this a reality. Our customers always come first, so it’s been tough to dedicate the time this project deserves. It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, tears and long nights (and weekends) trying to get this project off the ground, but it will be so worth it. We are currently putting all of the finishing touches on the site, adding all the juicy goodness for our customers (Freebies, Downloads, Trials, Offers, Specials, etc… you get the point) and then we will be in the testing phase. Early predictions show us launching mid summer 2010. Stay tuned for details.
This has been another one of our “put it on the back burner” projects that we will finally be dedicating some time to also. Progress so far has been slow, however we have moved forward slightly. Currently in the research & development stage, we’ve decided to go with the leader in Open Source E-commerce software today, Magento. Magento is relatively new compared to other solutions on the market, but it is undoubtedly the most robust and feature rich open source solution out there (Open Source is the only way to go). With over 1.5 Million downloads to date, over 2000 apps and a vast developer community of thousands around the world, it is definitely here to stay! With Magento as the backbone for MultiCOLOR Print, customers will be able to take advantage of secure online ordering, faster turnaround times, tons of product options, downloadable (do it yourself) templates, FTP file uploads and so much more from anywhere in the U.S. 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Stay tuned for details.
