Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 2, 2007
Volusion Inc., a provider of ecommerce solutions and website services, just announced the long awaited release of the newest version of its ecommerce solution. Almost each of the over 40 new features had at one time been requested by a current Volusion store owner. Lynn Bender, one of Volusion's Forum moderators, had the lucky privilege of announcing some of the new features before Version 5's official release. As the Feature Enhancements section of Volusion's Forum notes, "Volusion will definitely review each suggestion" made by site owners. In regards to telling customers about V5's new features, Lynn notes, "I used the phrase "you asked for it, we added it" to remind our customers that they are the ones driving the innovation."
Among the new innovations are enhanced site features and functionality, advanced product and category management tools, advanced order processing features, new CRM tools, design improvements and additional integrations. A major upgrade to V5 will also be seen in the form of new shipping functionality, which includes true shipping integrations. With the new version, merchants can now retrieve negotiated live rates from every major shipper and those live rates will take into consideration package dimensions, products shipping separately and orders shipping from multiple warehouses.
A major feature request was also filled with V5's ability to offer full "per product" dimensional shipping support for UPS, a feature that few ecommerce solutions provide. A merchant can now enter in the dimensions of a product to calculate shipping based on size and weight, helping immensely in situations where a large item may weigh very little. The new version also includes support for multiple warehouses, allowing warehouses to be set on a per product basis with the user's backend calculating live shipping rates from multiple points of origin.
Included with these new shipping features are faster live shipping rates, and advanced label printing. The live shipping rates module has also been re-architected, resulting in a noticeable difference in the speed in which live rates are returned. Also, store owners can now easily obtain live rates and create and print customer's USPS, DHL WorldWide Express and FedEx shipping labels directly from their own administration panel.
