EmergeCore Adds eCommerce to “IT in a Box” All-in-One Network Solution

I’ve covered EmergCore’s GREAT NETWORKING SOLUTION before, and it’s now even better!
New eCommerce functionality added to Web Site Builder creates complete,
in-house Internet solution for small businesses without expensive hosting
EmergeCore Networks, developer of high-value, low-cost integrated IT solutions for small business and branch offices, today announced new eCommerce features now
available on the award-winning IT-100 “IT in a Box”. Adding to a host of
powerful features that make it easy to build a wired or wireless network,
the IT-100 now allows small businesses to quickly and securely sell products
and services on the Internet. The IT-100 now allows small businesses to compete squarely against much larger organizations with a secure, professional eCommerce presence.
Now available through solution providers in the U.S., the eCommerce
enhanced IT-100 offers a more manageable, more powerful, more flexible, more
robust solution for the small office/home office environment. The IT-100 can
be quickly set up and managed at the business’ location without the expense
of outside hosting services. New functionality found in the IT-100 empowers
small businesses to offer customers:
∑ Graphic rich online catalogues
∑ Online shopping cart
∑ In-stock inventory checking
∑ Order tracking for timely product delivery
∑ Customized shipping profiles and automatic shipping cost calculator
∑ Secure credit card payment enabled by PayPal
Currently shipping, the IT-100 combines 20 gigabytes of
storage with a router, a four-port switch, a firewall, a “wi-fi” wireless
access point, an FTP server, multiple domain support, an e-mail server and
VPN services in a single $1,395 device.
In addition to its low price point, the IT-100 greatly reduces the need for costly IT support. Even a non-technical person can set up and manage the IT-100 through the CoreVista Web browser interface. There’s no software installation required. With on-board WEB Site Builder, the IT-100 allows users to quickly and easily design and build their own Web sites, with no need to perform an FTP upload.
With the built in wireless LAN
access point, a small business can save the expensive task of wiring an
office. With the built in VPN Server, a small business has the ability to
remotely and securely connect to the office network, and multiple remote
offices can securely connect to the head office. A small business can even
create and host its own Web site without ever having to upload an FTP file.
An office staff member can easily handle all of the setup functions of the
IT-100, or if they choose, they can administer the unit through a local ISP,
CLEC, or a consultant or reseller. The IT-100 design is particularly
appealing to the SMB with limited office space.
