Since someone request me an order management solution for a small business, I was looking for a product or technology which could best target the needs with the smaller amount of investment.
The SharePoint solution seems to fit well: first of all, the simple Microsoft Office System interface can be used to easily upload and maintain the whole catalog andÂ moreover, the WSS framework (included by defaul in the Windows Server 2003 license fee) assures the best security, stability and scalability a customer can be everÂ asked by his/her business.
The fist development lab of the solution founded on the WSS framework can be accessed to this URL http://sharepoint.valsania.it/sites/commerce.
In order to test aÂ product specifically designed to deploy and maintain an E-Commerce solution, I have also deployed a VirtueMart web site (http://commerce.valsania.it), using the same “BSDBOX” which runs the Phoibos hosted WordPress weblogs… try both and say me what you think about! 🙂
