PSINet Adds Intershop to E-Commerce Services

Herndon, VA-based independent ISP PSINet Inc. beefed up its electronic commerce
hosting services, adding the Intershop3 e-commerce hosting platform from San
Francisco-based Intershop Communications Inc.

and
merchant storefront capabilities. Businesses that do not require the complete
solution, may purchase each component part individually.

said Michael Mael, vice president, applications and Web services at PSINet.

solution that includes rapid implementation. Our custom solutions serve more
unique demands. . . .To address these
ever-changing needs, we are. . .continuously evaluating and choosing a range of
technologies that support complex business-to-business transactions.”
