NxTier Technologies Launched as E-Commerce ASP

Solutions Plus Inc. has launched NxTier Technologies as an applications services provider charged with developing and marketing the company's e-commerce, fulfillment and logistics products and services.

NxTier's iShipIt Internet commerce engine provides the communications infrastructure (software, hardware, network, connectivity) between e-commerce businesses and the fulfillment and transportation services that support them, Solutions Plus said.

NxTier's suite of products encompasses both customer facing and backend solutions, including shopping cart, order management, inventory management, warehouse management, rate calculation, routing optimization and tracing/tracking from port of entry to last mile delivery.

The company also offers online shipping services direct to consumers through its MisterShipIt.com Web site.

NxTier said it has already established client relationships with transportation providers including Consumer Delivery Network (CDN), (which handles oversize, overweight and special handling services for national transportation company Yellow Freight); Residential Delivery Services (RDS); and Navigator Logistics. NxTier is already providing e-commerce fulfillment services for Collectorsite.com, an e-tailer of collectibles.

Solutions Plus was founded in 1994 as an Internet service provider (ISP), and has transitioned into a full-service applications services provider.
