American apparel retailer J.Crew wants to bring its wares to world markets. FiftyOne's technology platform let it start doing so overnight. Last night, actually.
Once available only on tablets, the company brings more than 300 catalogs -- such as Williams Sonoma, J. Crew, and Eddie Bauer -- to its new Web app.
Cataloger J.Crew has opened a Web storefront for clothing and accessories. The first edition carries summer merchandise, with one item carried exclusively online; the site will be updated seasonally. Customers can make online purchases from J.Crew print catalogs, order a free catalog subscription, and contact customer service. Software Engines created the site, which links to J.Crew's existing order and inventory systems.
For the socially conscious shopper, SocialGoods launched a new Web site that allows shoppers to donate to a nonprofit organizations with their purchase. Users pay the same price as they do for products purchased directly from retailers. Customers can make purchases through a list of partners that includes online retailers Amazon.com, J. Crew, Office Max, eToys, Beyond.com, CD Now, Music Boulevard, PC Flowers and Reel.com.
