MashON Launches Dabble, "The Cure for the Common Shop," at Demo Fall 2011The First Supply Chain Solution for On-Demand Product Customization and Personalization Seamlessly Integrated With Leading eCommerce Shopping Carts (September 12, 2011)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/13/11 -- MashON, Inc., a leading provider of web-based product personalization technology and fulfillment services, today launched its new flagship product Dabble at DEMO Fall 2011. Dabble is an HTML5 patent-pending embeddable web application that provides a comprehensive product personalization and customization platform and "on-demand" manufacturing solution for shop owners operating on the leading eCommerce platforms. Dabble's Cart Adaptor technology, Fulfillment Adaptor, Product Customization Tool, and Self-Service Administration Dashboard work together to provide "The Cure for the Common Shop."
Until now, shop owners were limited to complex home-grown customization tools that have been time consuming and costly to develop and maintain; or to sending their hard-earned traffic to third-party, off-site product aggregators for manufacturing and fulfillment, relinquishing control of both their transactions and brand assets. Dabble's free tool is a full supply chain solution designed for online shop owners of all sizes, available immediately on all Magento-powered shops, with adaptors for Yahoo, Shopify, Demandware and many more coming soon. Once embedded into a shop, the Dabble Cart Adaptor facilitates seamless, two-way communication between the shop's product catalog, the shopping cart, and the order processor.
Dabble offers shop owners complete control of the product customization process -- from asset management to product selection, design and manufacturing all the way through to fulfillment. They'll find Dabble allows them to expand their merchandise mix -- risk-free -- simply by choosing from more than 350 current products available in its catalogue, while simultaneously eliminating the burdens of inventory and fulfillment -- all in a timely and cost-effective manner. Shoppers will experience endless product combinations that are never sold out, lower shipping and handling fees, pride of creation, and increased purchasing confidence with a single, secure checkout.
"Mass product customizations and user-generated product creation is one of the hottest and fastest growing trends in eCommerce. Online store owners want to take advantage of that trend, and maximize their profits just as worldwide brands like Nike have been doing so successfully, but there hasn't been a flexible, intuitive tool available to meet the rigors of real world on-demand manufacturing," says Philippe Benoleil, President & CEO of MashON. "As of today, Dabble can provide a simple turn-key solution to online shops eCommerce of all sizes."
"We're pleased to include Dabble in DEMO's Fall 2011 class of new product launches," says Matt Marshall, executive producer, DEMO. "We think this is a killer app for online store owners and operators, manufacturers, and eCommerce platform developers. It's flexible and simple for the shop owner and customer, and we look forward to seeing it gain real traction in the marketplace."
