9 May 2001: As businesses begin to see the real benefits of selling
online as a sales channel they will naturally want to streamline their
ecommerce and accounting applications into a single system. To meet this
growing demand, ecommerce software developer, Actinic plc, is announcing
Actinic Link. This is the umbrella name for a range of add-on business
solutions enabling the interfacing and data transfer between both Actinic
Catalog and Business and the top selling SME accounting applications. The
first of these modules is Actinic Link for Exchequer Enterprise which will
allow a two-way transfer of data between Actinic Business and Exchequer’s
Enterprise back-office accounting system. The product is available via
Actinic and Exchequer partners from 14 May at a RRP of £350 + VAT.

Actinic Link for Exchequer Enterprise has been developed together with
Exchequer Software and is only available through Actinic’s and Exchequer’s
reseller channel. The application provides two-way integration between the
two ecommerce and accounting packages, which includes the export of orders
directly from an Actinic ecommerce application into Exchequer and the
update of customer account, stock level and product information directly
from Exchequer to Actinic. This eliminates the need to re-key orders taken
via the ecommerce site or updating web catalogues manually.

“Actinic technology has always provided customers with the ability to
interface and integrate with a range of third party options such as ISPs
and payment providers. The announcement of Actinic Link is an important
next step in Actinic’s commitment to providing a choice of integration
options and not tying the user into a particular application or service
provider. The Exchequer module is the first in a series of business
application linking solutions that we will be introducing during the next
few months,” explains Nick Kington, Actinic’s marketing director. “In
addition, this extra functionality will increase our opportunities to
expand further into the IT VAR channel by providing ecommerce solutions
that integrate with the accounts software many of them already supply.”
