We have created an intuitive graphical interface (called 24Seven Link) that allows a merchant to easily ‘Web Enable’ items to push to the online store. Web enabling allows merchants to upload only selected items to the web store. Just as easily, it downloads website orders into the point of sale (POS)system. 24Seven Link overcomes every limitation faced by customers, who are using Retail Pro ECI module. For example, it can be used by unlimited users at any point of time and it utilizes the most advanced technology which avoids ‘time-outs’ faced by ECM users.
