Reasons Why I Love the Fabletics Reverse Showroom Model

One of the brands I’ve been most impressed with this past year is Fabletics. The brainchild of actress Kate Hudson, Fabletics is an “athleisure” wear company that is bringing the trendiest of athletic wear to over a million monthly subscribers. I will admit that I can’t stand going into a physical store these days. The prices are typically higher and the overall experience has me waiting in lines or sifting through clothing to find my size (not to mention trying on clothes under hideous fluorescent lighting is always a horrifying experience).

 

That is what I love most about the reverse showroom model used by Fabletics. Instead of physical locations, Fabletics has an entire showroom available on its website. The best part is that when you visit Fabletics website for the first time you are invited to take a simple Lifestyle Quiz. The quiz contains just a few questions on what type of workouts you like to do. It also gathers sizing information. After completing the quiz, you only see the styles of clothing that cater to your specific taste and are available in your size. The idea is genius.

 

The reverse showroom model is also excellent is due to the fact that an online showroom gathers data from every visitor. This helps the marketing team know what items are popular and ensure everything is stocked properly to always meet member needs. Because Fabletics is a membership model, people receive a full outfit each month, rather than spending hours filtering through a mass of items.

 

I should have expected nothing less from Kate Hudson. She is known for her acting, yet has really showcased her business acumen. She founded Fabletics to fill a niche in the world of athletic wear. Women had access to either low-budget clothing that didn’t last, or extremely high-priced athletic wear that offered little originality. Fabletics was designed to fill that gap. Fabletics offers quality athletic wear in a huge variety of styles that can all be bought at an affordable monthly rate.

 

Kate isn’t just the pretty face of Fabletics. The company is truly her baby and she is deeply involved in its success. Kate partnered with TechStyle Group to found Fabletics with the vision of it being something new and fresh. From day one Kate has been involved with directing social media, advertising and selecting the styles that fit the Fabletics brand.

Securus Technologies Continues Striving For Better Improved Safety With JPay Acquisition

In a continued attempt made by Securus Technologies, for improved public safety, this firm signed a Stock Purchase Agreement that ensured the acquisition of JPay Inc. This buy out has resulted in JPay to function as a wholly owned subsidiary of Securus Technologies, which can be now considered as the parent company. This merger has not in any way disrupted the operations of JPay. In fact, it has provided this payment and communication platform with added benefits of being associated with the new parent company.

 

 

In the recent past, Securus Technologies has also been responsible for creating Wireless Containment Units that ban calls made from inmates using contraband devices. These wireless units also ban calls from unknown numbers to be received by phones while within prison walls. Eight corrections units within the country have embraced this new technology with other jails soon to follow their lead.

 

 

According to a recent article posted on PR Newswire, this acquisition has ensured that Securus Technologies gets a lead in sectors such as corrections, payments and public safety. The primary purpose of this buy out, was to combine the two forces to create a better jail system that runs on modern equipment, the latest security and with high tech hardware as well as cutting edge software programs to ensure that the greater good of people’s safety is always put forward.

 

 

In another article posted on PR Newswire, it was revealed that Securus Technologies had recently been given an accolade of the highest standard. This accreditation was provided by the Better Business Bureau as Securus Technologies had maintained a clean track record of honest and transparent operations as well as straightforward advertisements. This accolade was also granted because this firm had established an improved call center to deal with customer grievances in the first call itself with an overall customer satisfaction score of 4.3 on a scale of 5.
