ShopKeeper 3.0 Launched Friday 19 October 2001 PDF Print Professional Web Store System Sets New Standards Of Sophistication For SME’s “SME’s don’t want to be patronised with tacky e-shop fronts or inadequate reporting and analysis,” says Anne Keddie, Marketing Manager, Connect Internet Solutions. Leading provider of innovative Internet solutions, Connect, has announced the latest version of its widely acclaimed ShopKeeper web shop solution for SMEs. The system brings new levels of sophistication to the SME e-shop market. ShopKeeper 3 delivers a fully featured, secure and inexpensive solution for successful online trading. Stores can be developed quickly and easily with a broad range of layout templates that will convey a professional image. An unlimited number of products and product photos can be supported too. Centre stage in this new version is a host of new features that allow easy maintenance of product information and pricing. These heighten the immediacy of the site and make it even more reactive to users’ short run commercial needs such as promotional offers. Such special offers can be easily set up, including detailing the length of time an offer should run. There is a new multiple price update feature, where with a single click, users can update the prices of several products viewing and amending an easy to use product price table. There is also an all new multiple purchase discount facility, where customers can be offered a range of discount rates when purchasing more than one of the same product. In addition, the use of leading spreadsheet software allows users to maintain and update product information off-line. ShopKeeper 3 also combats what is probably the greatest criticism of SME web shop systems to date - the lack of professional analysis and reporting. With ShopKeeper 3, comprehensive reporting and analysis of purchasing trends is provided with easy to view tables and graphs. Very detailed information, even down to where orders originated, can also be accessed. Another new feature is the system’s ability to flag a product out of stock, ensuring that it cannot be added to a customer’s shopping basket. Connect also ensures that the site enjoys maximum visibility by automatically submitting it to the most popular search engines and directories. According to Anne Keddie, Marketing Manager of Connect, “SME’s don’t want to be patronised with tacky e-shop fronts or inadequate reporting and analysis. Just because a company is an SME does not mean they want to look small or home spun, nor do they want to be kept in the dark when it comes to analysis. ShopKeeper 3 addresses this sentiment wholeheartedly. “The evolution of ShopKeeper reflects the tremendous success it has enjoyed amongst a broad range of organisations – both large and small. It is, for example, used on the much praised Liverpool FC website – liverpoolfc.tv.” ShopKeeper costs £499 plus VAT. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel 0151 794 6699.
