Impulse Software Introduces 'Impulse 4.0'

Impulse Software released Impulse 4.0, an upgrade to its e-commerce site builder that allows any non-technical small business owner to create and manage a sales Web site using any ISP.

The company said Impulse 4.0 is more than just a shopping cart program and can be used to create a fully functional and secure commerce-enabled site in less than 30 minutes. Merchants can incorporate their product descriptions and price list and publish them to the Internet without any other Web development tool.

The product can be used to add e-commerce to an existing Web site or build a commerce-enabled site from scratch. It integrates with popular business accounting packages like QuickBooks and Peachtree.

Impulse 4.0 includes a credit card verification and transaction Module and provides access to a secure server with no additional charges. The system is delivered standard with both SSL and PGP 5.5.

The Impulse 4.0 package sells for a suggested retail price of $295 and includes Web-site management and online commerce software, 60 days of free upgrades within version as well as technical support, and access to additional commerce resources available from the Impulse Software Web site. For an additional $99, users can also purchase an extended license that provides a full year of technical support, all upgrades within the version, and discounts on later releases.
