Hostopia launches suite of e-commerce enhancements



    Latest release of EasyStoreMaker Pro 3 enables business users to create
    and easily operate a fully functional e-commerce enabled online store in
    minutes

    TORONTO, and FT. LAUDERDALE, FL, March 14 /CNW/ - Today Hostopia
announces the launch of a new version of its flagship e-commerce application
EasyStoreMaker Pro version 3.0. Numerous usability enhancements and additional
application features make this popular application more attractive to
Hostopia's service-provider distributors and their small business end-users.
    "With over 20,000 e-commerce application users on our network, Hostopia
ranks in the top three e-commerce service providers in North America. User and
distributor feedback thus far on our latest enhancements to EasyStoreMaker Pro
are extremely positive and we anticipate further increases in application
usage," says Paul D. Engels, chief marketing officer for Hostopia.com Inc.
    EasyStoreMaker Pro version 3.0 enhancements include a wizard that takes a
non-technical user through the easy steps of setting up an e-commerce store
complete with product display information, shipping options, tax and currency
settings and more. Store design and setup is made considerably easier with the
inclusion of a library of pre-built storefront templates in graphically rich,
compelling designs. Further enhancements include a CSV import/export function
to easily enable setup of large product SKU data files, a free bundled SSL
certificate and a "product showcasing" feature that helps promote sales and/or
featured products.
    Engels notes, "Business users have eagerly embraced pre-built storefront
templates as a logical extension of market demand for site templates. Few
business owners have the time or expertise required to design their online
store. Templates powered by a wizard allow business owners or their website
developer to more quickly establish an e-commerce presence."
    EasyStoreMaker Pro version 3.0 is immediately available to all Hostopia
wholesale customers who in turn can offer the updated application to their end
users via Hostopia's private labelled hosting control panel interface, Website
OS(TM).
