Tuesday unveiled PeopleSoft eMarketplace, a new application for
business-to-business and business-to-consumer e-commerce.
Integrated with the PeopleSoft e-business backbone, PeopleSoft eMarketplace
provides a multi-channel solution including sales, customer self-service,
product marketing, order fulfillment, and closed-loop analytics.
“Today’s announcement of PeopleSoft eMarketplace brings enterprise power to
Internet commerce by providing an end-to-end solution that will integrate
the Internet storefront, back-office fulfillment, and analytic
applications,” said Jeff Carr, PeopleSoft senior vice president of
marketing and strategy execution.
“PeopleSoft eMarketplace provides the complete ‘dot.com-in-a-box’
functionality that today’s companies–from startups to multinationals–will
need to compete in the Internet economy.”
PeopleSoft eMarketplace will allow organizations to deploy Internet sites to
sell goods and services. The application is built on the leading Internet
commerce technology of Microsoft Site Server 3.0 Commerce Edition.
In addition to the alliance with Microsoft, PeopleSoft has leveraged several
other relationships for PeopleSoft eMarketplace, including alliances with
Vertex, Inc. and Taxware International, Inc. for sales and use tax
processing, and CyberSource Corp. for credit card processing.
The first phase of PeopleSoft eMarketplace is scheduled to become
available this summer.
PeopleSoft, a global supplier of Internet-based, electronic
business network solutions, has downsized in recent months and is looking for an opportunity
to return to the Internet fray.
