ProFlowers App, Offering Fresh Flowers On-the-Go, Launches for iPhone & iPod touch

ProFlowers®, one of the nation’s largest online fresh flower retailers, is launching its first flower app for iPhone and iPod touch. ProFlowers App, available now on the App Store, is the quickest way to order fresh, vibrant flowers for delivery as early as the next day.

ProFlowers App, designed by its subsidiary Sincerely, creates a seamless shopping experience for those looking to gift fresh-from-the-field flowers ready to bloom for at least seven days. Features of the app include:

  • Simplified choices: Floral designers have curated 40 fresh flower and plant selections that gifters can choose based on how they want the recipient to feel. Sentiments include: Desired, Encouraged, Celebrated, Appreciated and Comforted.
  • Easy address importing: The gifter can import shipping information from their phone address book so there’s no need to type out a delivery address.
  • Quick checkouts: Checkouts are quick and secure with the credit card scanning system that allows shoppers to take a photo of the billing info and save it for easy purchasing.
  • Occasion reminders: The app provides notifications for friends’ birthdays and special occasions through Sincerely’s Thoughtfulness Engine™, a tool that helps users remember to send cards or gifts before it’s too late.

The bouquets and plants featured on the ProFlowers App are named after the city and national parks that inspired the arrangements. From Funston to Hapuna, this seasonal collection of flowers and plants are guaranteed to be delivered fresh for long-lasting joy.

“At ProFlowers, we believe that flowers and plants have the ability to create an emotional experience, no matter the occasion. The new ProFlowers mobile app focuses on the gifting experience itself, and it’s designed for an easy, effortless and enjoyable experience for both the customer and the recipient,” said ProFlowers General Manager and Vice President Bill Patterson.

“ProFlowers revolutionized the floral industry 15 years ago, and technology is always at the forefront of everything we do as an e-commerce company. The new mobile app is just another extension of our commitment to innovation,” said Provide Commerce CEO Chris Shimojima. “People today want to order their Valentine’s Day flowers quickly and easily and know that they will arrive vibrant and ready to bloom. They rely on us to create that ‘wow’ experience for their loved ones, and the new mobile app is just one way we are improving the gifting experience.”

ProFlowers was the first online retailer to send flowers direct, fresh from the fields, to customers and their loved ones nationwide. ProFlowers has delivered more than 50 million bouquets over the past 15 years. The online floral company guarantees service, value and reliability with every gift, and the flowers and plants sent through the app are no exception. All gifts given through the app come with a free pot or vase, personalized card, easy care instructions and a seven-day freshness guarantee.

The ProFlowers App for iPhone and iPod touch is available for free on the App Store or at http://www.proflowers.com/app.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
