1-800-FLOWERS.COM® Uses Moovweb to Implement Google Wallet Payments for Mobile Site

Moovweb, the world’s first Agile Web mobile platform, today announced that 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is now offering Google Wallet as a payment option for its mobile website, using the Moovweb Agile Web platform. With the latest 1-800-FLOWERS.COM website update, Moovweb has enabled customers to securely and easily check-out using their Google Wallet account on their mobile device. Google Wallet was designed to improve the mobile shopping experience by allowing customers to shop on their smartphones and tablets without the need to enter credit card information. Google Wallet can be authorized as a default payment method, and with it, customers can log into merchant websites via their Google account.

“Moovweb made the integration of Google Wallet into our mobile platform fast and simple,” said Chris McCann, President, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. “Google Wallet users receive all of the conveniences of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM desktop site and can now more easily make purchases on the desktop and mobile platform with the service. “

Moovweb is a Google Wallet Premium Platform Partner, allowing the company to quickly and easily integrate Google Wallet as a payment option on its customers’ mobile websites. As a partner, the company is authorized to deliver Google Wallet functionality for leading national retailers and brands on their mobile sites and tablet apps.

Moovweb is a cloud-based platform that transforms desktop sites into compelling mobile experiences in real-time, enabling a powerful “One Web” strategy for businesses that need to leverage existing Web assets but deliver compelling mobile experiences at the same time. Moovweb is built on the Moovweb Cloud, a next-generation, high performance, cloud-based infrastructure optimized to deliver Web experiences for mobile environments. The free Moovweb SDK empowers front-end developers with a mobile development framework for rapid design and deployment of feature rich mobile optimized websites.

“We bring the latest mobile enhancements, like Google Wallet, into mobile sites within days or hours instead of weeks or months,” said Mitch Bishop, CMO for Moovweb. “Moovweb enables companies in all industries to leverage one single Web stack that gets transformed into powerful mobile experiences in real time. This cuts IT cost and enhances business agility.”

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
