Menlo Park - Looking to make the online shopping experience more efficient, cheaper and faster? The Mavatar Technologies’ application and add-on tries to make the holiday and birthday shopping a little bit easier for you.
Mavatar is an online shopping company that offers online shoppers an unsurpassed user experience. The innovative shopping company gives a smart shopping platform that provides them with an avenue to shop and save in ways they haven't been able to do before. The platform offers a simple and personalized shopping experience.
Mavatar’s mobile and tablet application or web browser add-on is free to download and quite easy to operate. It works by the customer browsing through the items and adding them to their cart. Once that is completed, the Mavatar app or add-on will search for all of the available deals applicable for that particular customer and apply them automatically. As soon as the customer is 100 percent satisfied, he or she can just checkout. If there are any additional promotional codes available, each one can be applied at the retailer’s website.
One of the biggest advantages provided by Mavatar is that it offers customers a universal cart where they can store and organize all of their items. This way they can refrain from having to toggle between stores. It helps customers optimize their purchase options and get the best possible deal that is out there.
The Mavatar app supports several stores, including Athleta, Banana Republic, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale's, Cusp, Gap, Horchow, Last Call, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Old Navy and Piperlime. More stores are being added over the course of the year and hundreds of them will be supported through its platform.
Despite whatever the shopping occasion may be for – holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or special events – it can be performed without all of the hassle and stress and done with fun and efficiency (maybe even savings).
It was announced Wednesday that the company received $1 million in investment capital from Chris Kelly, former Facebook CPO; Jeffrey Moore, scientist and award-winning retired Stanford Graduate School of Business lecturer; Ross Haghighat, Triton Systems CEO; and Dr. Afshin Graveli, Medical Director of Pain Specialists of Orange County.
“We're extremely grateful for our investors' and advisors' dedication and support of our company,” said the Brom Mahbod, Mavatar co-founder, in a press release. “Their insight, industry knowledge, and commitment to Mavatar is allowing us continued growth and potential of making a big impact in the online shopping space.”
Mavatar is located in Silicon Valley and was founded in 2011 by Mahbod, the former Vice President of Oracle Corp. and a Ph.D. in computer science, and Susan Akbarpour, the former Teksia Inc. founder and CEO.
