e-Commerce: Everyone’s Doing It

E-Commerce is revolutionizing business processes.  Application of e-Commerce allows businesses to limitlessly expand across borders and keep the doors open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Macola Software, already a leader in integrated accounting, distribution, and manufacturing ERP solutions for small to mid-size companies, has developed a comprehensive e-Commerce companion package thanks to their partnership with fourthchannel, a Columbus, OH based company specializing in electronic commerce.

Macola and fourthchannel’s e-Commerce technology allows businesses to publish a subset of their Macola Inventory Master File as an online catalog.  From there, customers can use a “shopping cart” to buy products and services.

Once orders are placed, Macola’s tightly integrated set of services retrieve the order information, process it electronic-ally, and can update order status (credit hold, shipping date, etc.) to the web automatically.

E-Commerce web hosting can be done a number of ways, the most popular of which are “leasing” the software and web space or purchasing the software and hosting on an in-house web server.  Regardless of which option, Macola can support robust, automated electronic commerce, from supply side to manufacturing to order entry to accounting.
