ePages products are especially designed for small and mid-sized businesses. Our products enable every business to take advantage of online commerce. Through our scalable technology platform and flexible license model, companies with smaller budgets can enter the exciting world of online business and easily grow as necessity dictates.
In the past, many mid-sized companies have either hesitated before building an online sales platform, or started with a very limited product offering. One of the reasons for this was that there were few standards to follow for e-commerce, which led to many custom-built solutions proliferating the market. These proprietary solutions presented three serious drawbacks:
- They are often unreliable due to lack of testing
- They are expensive to maintain
- They cannot keep up with the current developments in the Internet
Because of this, development and maintenance budgets for these "quick and easy" solutions often spin out of control. What looked like a simple solution turns out to be a money pit.
ePages is a pioneer in e-commerce. In 1995, they started developing state-of-the-art e-business solutions that have since received numerous awards. Today, over 30,000 online merchants use our solutions. Many of those include the top names in their fields.
Rich functionality and numerous expansion options mean that the solutions operate on the same level as professional Web sites of leading online companies. A comfortable user interface, all the functionality that you would expect from an online store, a powerful back office for managing customer data and orders, and interfaces to internal IT systems provide companies with everything required for lasting online business success.
