eCommerce solutions for your business
axis vMerchant is not just a powerful and flexible shopping site application; it is a total e-Business solution.
axis vMerchant requires absolutely no specialised web knowledge to set up - you do not need to know HTML - you do not even need to know what HTML is!
This does not prevent e-Commerce web sites built on axis vMerchant from looking fantastic or unique - just visit our Portfolio to see some of the different designs that are being used.
You can easily create and maintain a database of products with any number of levels of categorisation. You can associate pictures, detailed descriptions and pricing information with products and, when you are happy with your catalogue, you simply publish it to the web server.
Retail Web Sites, Trade Web Sites or a Combination of the Two!
axis vMerchant offers support for both Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) On-Line Ordering.
Consumers (or retail customers) purchase goods on-line by browsing or searching your catalogue. Having added items (at standard pricing) to their shopping basket, they simply go to the checkout, enter their personal details, and pay by credit card in a totally secure environment.
Trade customers log on to the axis vMerchant web site with User IDs and Passwords that you have supplied. They then see their trade pricing (which can be defined separately for each customer). In addition to payment by credit/debit card, trade orders may be on account, in which case the customer simply enters their official purchase order number and any special instructions.
Full Back Office Integration
The real strength of axis vMerchant, however, is in its ability to link directly to your Accounts and Order Processing Systems. In particular, if you are using axis diplomat or axis diplomat/OP in conjunction with the optional axis diplomat eBusiness module, the product catalogue and customer information, including individuals’ trade pricing, are automatically extracted direct from your Sales and Stock Ledgers, whilst orders are imported directly into the Sales Order Processing system - with no re-keying of data required, at any stage. Trade customers are able to log on to the web site and produce their own price lists, order forms and statements. They are even able to drill-down on statements to view individual outstanding invoices on-screen.
