 12 Online Solutions Empowers Retailers with Advanced Tools to Help Them Effectively Battle for Relevance Against Amazon

Carson City, NV & Hong Kong, May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTC: RETC) is proud to introduce 12 Online Solutions to the e-commerce industry. These online marketing solutions will feature “shoppable video”, gamification modules and machine learning algorithms among other additional tools and techniques which are designed to attract, engage and convert shoppers into buyers. 12 ReTech will be implementing 12 Online Solutions tools into our 2nd generation e-commerce channels, which are slated to launch in the second half of 2018.

The first beneficiary of 12 Online Solutions will be Emotion Apparel, the recently acquired microbrand headed by Hub Blanchett. Blanchett recently moved his production facilities to Salt Lake City, Utah where he leads a staff of apparel industry professionals who believe that today's clothing shoppers are looking to express their individuality and want brands that convey their self-image. Emotion Apparel, fits that billing with products featuring hand dyed high-end fabrics. Each piece is different than the next.

Blanchett explained, “To take our business to the next level we needed a strategic partner which completely understands the retailer operation. The 12 ReTech team has been a great find for me. These guys get it and bring in teams of experts in relevant technology, profitable operations, brand extension marketing and sales channels expansion which include wholesale and direct to consumer. We now have access to influential brand marketers, experienced retail managers, effective manufacturing operators and successful media experts who are providing us solutions that work.”

Kirk Kimerer, Chief Marketing Officer of 12 ReTech comments, “12 Online Solutions, when properly implemented, delivers the ability to affect shopper behaviors by collecting real time data and utilizing predictive analytics to deliver relevant content to each individual shopper via web and mobile channels.”

12 Online Solutions is a collection of 3rd party and proprietary software tools, which include gamification elements, a merchandise review platform, cross promotions of other microbrands, integrated merchant loyalty programs, user generated content and complete with social media integration.

One of the key tools of 12 Online Solutions is “shoppable video”. Video content, according to industry research reports, is driving higher conversion metrics and user engagement. Just adding video to a brand site, however, is not enough – it must convert into sales, which is why 12 ReTech is using embedded video object technology in its contents to make it shoppable. A viewer can click on objects within our videos that will then take them to a place where they can purchase the product, without leaving the video.

In addition, 12 Online Solutions can deliver highly compressed shopping catalogs. As an example, imagine an entire L.L. Bean catalog produced within a one-minute video, which can then be syndicated and shared through social media networks and reach millions of shoppers within minutes at a fraction of the cost of publishing a print catalog. This new format for catalogs will allow 12 ReTech to collect data about user behavior and deliver exciting, relevant and fresh content to online shoppers encouraging them to engage and purchase.

Angelo Ponzetta, Chief Executive Officer of 12 ReTech commented, “Our technology is designed to attract shoppers to our retailers and convert them into buyers. We are constantly adding new innovations to our offerings which are designed around this concept. We understand that it’s not just about technology, it’s also about content that is innovative and engaging while fully utilizing the power of today's technology.”

Mr. Ponzetta continued, "Look for 12 ReTech to create products that make it easier for shoppers to purchase goods from our retailers. Amazon created "One-Click" to reduce online shopping cart abandonment. We will soon be discussing our own next generation of online tools that make it even easier for new shoppers to become buyers!"
