Breakthrough Software Inc. released an online store development product called ShopZone.
The company also launched a corresponding developer program that provides qualified Web developers with run-time licenses for the software, complimentary Not-for-Resale copies for prototyping use, and critical tools, technical information and joint marketing programs essential to developing secure online stores.
For a limited time, qualified developers will join the program free and receive ShopZone at no charge if they develop a site within 30 days.
According to Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and a Breakthrough board of directors member, "Just as in the early days of computing when a handful of products fueled the PC revolution, so too will products like ShopZone fuel the Internet e-commerce revolution."
"Our first product, Internet Business Breakthrough, pioneered the concept of a turnkey solution to anyone looking to set up shop online," said Trevor R. Stout, Breakthrough co-founder and chief executive officer. "With ShopZone, we focus most intently on helping the Web developer address the myriad range of customer needs in order to create a profitable and sustainable online store."
Features include: wizards for product catalog, shopping cart, order forms, shipping rates, tax schedules, discussion groups, electronic forms and an integral search engine; back-end configuration with major ISPs; integration with popular editors such as Microsoft FrontPage; integration with Quickbooks; built-in relational database ODBC connectivity and offline site preview; built-in site management as well as secure SSL server, CyberCash and IC Verify support.
ShopZone, priced at $995, will be available for download at the company's Web site.
