Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, U.K. (PRWEB) March 17, 2005
Parker Software announced today the release of Email2DB, a tool that bridges that gap between e-mail and back-end databases, or email database integration.
Email2DB is a product designed for businesses that receive orders, payments or any other type of regular form-based information via e-mail. It parses the e-mail message and extracts field data, which is then used to update databases. Email2DB can also send custom e-mail responses, process attachments and update Outlook Contacts.
"As more and more companies and individuals are doing business online, Email2DB fulfills a real need of bridging the gap between e-mail and back-end databases and associated business processes," said Stephen Parker, managing director of Parker Software.
"Any business that receive orders, payments or any sort of feedback form via e-mail will find Email2DB an invaluable tool. For instance, a business can receive an order via e-mail. Email2DB will read it, extract the data and update the accounting database. Then, it will send a customized confirmation e-mail to the customer, forward the order to the order processing department and print a report," he said. "It also improves on secure electronic transactions because it allows databases to be updated away from the Web server."
Email2DB can process e-mail messages from POP3 and IMAP servers and directly from Microsoft Outlook 2003 folders. The Email2DB server runs as a system service and does not interfere with the normal e-mail flow. Email2DB also includes a powerful scripting language, allowing businesses to create custom business processes that can be executed in response to e-mail messages.
Parker Software is providing e-commerce companies, large and small, with a 30-day free evaluation version of Email2DB. The evaluation software can be downloaded at http://www.email-2-db.com.
