GlobalTech to Sell Actinic Catalog Software

Software reseller GlobalTech Solutions Inc. announced the availability of the Actinic Catalog e-Commerce Software 2.0 in the United States.

Developed by the British company Actinic Software Ltd., using 128 bit encryption technology, the Actinic Catalog software is designed to enable any business to start selling on-line within minutes, GlobalTech said. The $399 package includes catalog creation, shopping cart, secure encrypted transmissions and order processing.

"Actinic Catalog is the first e-commerce package to break down the two major barriers keeping small businesses from selling on the Internet; cost and complexity," said Chris Barling, managing director of Actinic Software. "There are no service charges, and firms can even use their existing credit card processing service to process the orders instead of signing up for another credit card processing service on the Internet."

The self-installing 128-bit encrypted Actinic Catalog software allows merchants to create and manage an online store themselves with only a Web site and dial-up connection to their ISP, the company said. The vendor can be notified by e-mail when orders have been received, and they can be downloaded to the vendor's desktop with all of the necessary information including validated credit card numbers. Invoices can be printed along with credit card information.

Actinic Catalog 2.0 can be purchased in the U.S. from GlobalTech Solutions, Inc. or from various mail order catalogs. In Europe and elsewhere it can be purchased directly from Actinic Software Ltd.
