It’s hard to imagine, but there was a time when a person patronizing a frozen yogurt establishment would have to ask some goober behind the counter to prepare their dessert for them. Now, of course, one can fill their cup with whatever (and as many) flavors as they desire, load it up with a sickening combination of Butterfinger, gummy worms and Cap’n Crunch cereal, and then top it off with a half-pint of caramel syrup. Mmm … freedom is delicious.
The point is that things are simply better when it can be done without anyone else butting in. One gets that warm, comforting sense of accomplishment, and can revel in the convenience and flexibility of his or her own decision-making.
Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, understands that some people have an aversion to handholding. It makes sense—there’s not always a bottle of Purell handy. So the company is introducing a new self-serve system, which allows users to immediately set up an account and get started, all by their lonesome. No goober behind the counter.
Here are some of the delectable features that the new system offers:
Shmoop would love to suggest that they can provide things “your way, right away,” but Burger King already swooped in and nabbed that one. Suffice it to say that Shmoop’s new self-serve system will put the power in the user’s hands, where it belongs. And that is one tasty proposition. With whipped cream and a cherry on top.
