orders faster ~

25 January 2005 ~ Weybridge, Surrey ~ Actinic, the UK's best-selling
ecommerce software supplier, today announces the forthcoming release of a
multi-user version of Actinic Business, its mid-range ecommerce solution
for more advanced and higher volume ecommerce sites. See for full details.

Actinic Business Multi-user Version was developed in response to user
feedback and market research, to meet the needs of growing ecommerce
businesses. It offers significant additional benefits incremental to
Actinic Business, and dramatically increases order processing capacity and
efficiency for sites with high order volumes. It also allows entrepreneurs
to open and manage unlimited numbers of web stores from a single licence.
Added benefits include:

* Increased capacity
Actinic Business Multi-user Version allows up to 6 PCs to process online
and offline orders simultaneously, but prevents more than one user
processing the same order at the same time. Prices of both online orders
and offline orders can be adjusted during processing. The current status of
all orders is displayed on all PCs.

* Increased efficiency
One Click Order Processing. This time-saving feature allows multiple
functions to be completed in a single action, including printing the
invoice, printing a packing list, marking the order as paid and sending a
dispatch confirmation email. The Administrator can customise the one click
operation according to the requirements of the business and update the
product catalogue from any PC.

* Greater flexibility
There is now an option to print barcodes on invoices and lists, allowing
for faster transfer of customer and order information to other
applications, or between the stages of the order fulfilment process. Orders
can be completed simply by scanning the barcode from a previously printed
turn-around document, once the goods have been dispatched. This enables
orders to be tracked with minimum overhead.

Harry Ganz, managing director of The Garden Pharmacy (
says, "Actinic Business multi-user version means that in a busy
environment, we are no longer fighting over the one PC: orders can be
downloaded in the warehouse, the office and the packing room, and
amendments to the orders can be carried out at any PC. Therefore the
dispatching of orders is much more efficient."

"The multi-user version has been developed in response to owners of highly
successful Actinic sites with multi-million pound turnovers. That's why we
are so confident that it will meet with a very positive response, "
explains Phil Rothwell, managing director of Actinic. He adds, "The
extended feature set will help any company with a growing e-business to
cope with high volumes at a lower price point than previously available."

Pricing & Availability
Prices for Actinic Business Multi-user Version start from £2000 + VAT for a
2-user licence, including installation. For more details contact Actinic
