Cloudware City Rolls out Snappy Mobile Web App Store

Warrington, UK - 30th April 2012 – For immediate release

Cloudware Hosting Ltd has recently been trialling a Mobile version of their Cloudware City storefront - cut down and optimised for smaller displays, improving page load times and usability for devices particularly on slower GPRS networks. Along with many of the other streamlined features such as the recently announced "ExpressRenew" the update underpins an elevated user experience and improves customer satisfaction when purchasing online subscriptions through the store.

Cloudware Hosting Ltd, providing a unique all-in-one marketplace, recurring billing, management and authentication platform for selling subscriptions to cloud based content or apps, announce their latest update to the Cloudware City Web App Store to snap pages into view on mobile devices.

The mobile enhancement incorporates the latest technology to determine which browser and device is being used, with the option to switch between the regular pages or mobile experience at the click of a link at the top of each page. Mobile friendly pages are ever increasingly important with the explosion in hand held internet capable technologies such as Apple's iPhone, iPad, Google Android, Blackberry and other ultra mobile platforms.

Vendors who are also looking to take more advantage of mobile web applications welcome the latest update.

Commented Keith Hall, Founder and CEO, “As we see increasing numbers of mobile users, it becomes crucial to keep in touch with their requirements for ease and speed of access. Vendors looking to capitalise on mobile technology need a workable payment solution and Cloudware City now meets that need. Ever since our update went live, page load times have plummeted on mobiles, transforming the user experience. The amount of data transferred is also minimised, saving money on their mobile provider data plans.

Vendors enjoy the advantage of zero up-front charges and a pay-as-you-go service platform and rocket their apps and content sites to market with Cloudware City’s unique platform. Wordpress and Joomla plug-ins are freely downloadable and content providers can build out lucrative sites without the distraction of complex software development or payment handling concerns.

Perfect for online web apps and membership websites, after a quick, less than three minutes sign up, Cloudware City provides everything necessary to start signing up customers who are then billed to access a vendor's website or content. All major credit and debit cards are accepted, no special banking arrangements are required and the only thing the website owner need decide is where they want their money sent. Now Vendors can target mobile users as easily as their desktop counterparts.

Cloudware City Extends ExpressRenew Subscriptions Technology for Improved Customer Experience

Warrington, UK - 31st March 2012 – For immediate release

With ExpressRenew, customers can renew cancelled or expired subscriptions withing a couple of clicks, saving time and improving the experience particularly on mobile or key-less devices.

Cloudware Hosting Ltd, the revolutionary new company that provides a unique all-in-one marketplace, recurring billing, management and authentication platform for selling subscriptions to cloud based content or apps, announces an update to the Cloudware City Web App Store to make it even easier for customers to renew cancelled or expired subscriptions.

ExpressRenew is based around the underlying recurring billing technology within Cloudware City, which is already proving to be a success with customers who are given the full control over automatically renewing subscriptions at the touch of a button.

Before ExpressRenew, customers would need to enter all their payment details again for any expired subscription, even if only seconds had elapsed since expiry. ExpressRenew now reduces the customer workload to a single click and confirmation of order. Error handling of payment issues are taken care of automatically by falling back to payment detail acquisition in rare cases such as payment card declined situations.

Designed with the shorter duration subscriptions in mind (e.g. 1 to 7 days) the technology allows customers to quickly buy a repeat subscription within a couple of clicks, particularly helpful for mobile and keyboard-less devices where entering customer card details can be a cumbersome task.

The Cloudware City ExpressRenew feature is currently available for up to 30 days after expiry of a subscription.

The Cloudware City Web App Store can be found at https://cloudwarecity.com/store?123b

Commented Keith Hall, Founder and CEO, "The ease of use of our systems both from Vendor and end user perspectives is a priority focus for Cloudware City. The ExpressRenew development brings another level to the customer experience, improving customer satisfaction. The less time the customer spends inputting payment details, the more time they have to enjoy the web app, service or content they are subscribing to and in turn increases the revenue potential."

Perfect for online web apps and membership websites, after a quick, less than three minutes sign up, Cloudware City provides everything necessary to start signing up customers who are then billed to access the website or content. All major credit and debit cards are accepted, no special banking arrangements are required and the only thing the website owner need decide is where they want their money sent.
