Virtualis Delivers HiRize 4.1

Virtualis Systems Inc. delivered HiRize 4.1, an enhanced version of its proprietary suite of 22 Web site creation and management tools.

The Web-based applications feature faster load times, faster shopping cart and catalog creation and an improved user interface. HiRize 4.1 tools are available with hosting options ranging from $36 to $1,499 per month.

"In less than one day, Web developers can build a fully functional online storefront," said Chris Lyman, CEO of Virtualis and creator of HiRize. "Our tools provide shopping carts, catalogs, payment processing, mail lists, statistics and security features."

The applications are compatible with FrontPage 98, Real Audio/Video, SSI, SSL, Java, JavaScript, C, C++, Shockwave, Unix, NT, MSQL, Perl, CGI, FTP, Telnet, IIS, and WPP.

Templates provide 63 variations of shopping cart and catalog layouts. Seventeen shipping options tie in with the UPS Shipping Calculator, including an insurance option and overseas shipping fees.

Eleven payment options are available with five customizable entries including an adjustable tax rate and monetary symbol selection.

Customizable discount codes are an option as well as customizable add-ons, such as gift-wrap, cards or accessories. Thumbnail images and large product images can be uploaded and a "Featured item" can be displayed.

GateSnap! automatically links the store with 90 percent of the 300+ payment gateways on the market, eliminating configuration costs and the time involved with integrating a gateway with the store.
