Actinic Introduces Actinic Link: Allows Integration of SMEs’ Ecommerce and Accounting Systems Wednesday 9 May 2001 PDF Print 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.” A screen shot of the product is available at http://www.actinic.co.uk/press/screens.htm - First module integrates Actinic Catalog/Business and Exchequer’s Enterprise accounting software - If you want to be removed from Actinic's list, please mail: firstname.lastname@example.org About Actinic plc: Founded in 1996 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in May 2000, Actinic develops ecommerce software for small and medium size enterprises that it reaches through a network of partners (web hosts, web designers and Internet Service Providers).
