INTERSHOP, Open Market Integrate E-Commerce Apps

INTERSHOP Communications and Open Market are teaming up to offer INTERSHOP CommerceLink 1, a link product that integrates the merchandising and hosting features of INTERSHOP Mall with Open Market Transact.

Transact is transaction processing and order management software designed for business conducted over the Internet. CommerceLink is currently scheduled for availability in the second quarter for the Microsoft Windows NT, HP-UX, Sun Solaris, and SGI IRIX hardware platforms.

San Francisco-based INTERSHOP and Burlington, MA-based Open Market embarked on a strategic partnership in November 1997, targeting telecommunication companies and Internet service providers worldwide.

"We are pleased to be Open Market's strategic partner for providing sophisticated e-commerce hosting applications to the telco and ISP markets," said Stephan Schambach, president and CEO of INTERSHOP. "CommerceLink 1 joins two award-winning products and creates a solution that meets the most exacting standards of shoppers, merchants and hosts."
