The CloudCraze mission is simple -- to harness the power of Cloud-computing to deliver instantaneous inexpensive eCommerce capabilities to benefit businesses of all sizes
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 17, 2009
EDL Consulting a technology services firm specializing in the intelligent integration of eCommerce, CRM and business intelligence solutions, today announced the launch of its CloudCraze eCommerce solution.
CloudCraze makes the most of a defining shift in the technology industry toward Cloud Computing. Experts believe that 50% of Global 2000 companies will be using Cloud-computing applications in the coming year.
CloudCraze allows companies to quickly define and configure eCommerce websites. Once configured, these websites can be deployed instantaneously on the Force.com platform, available to Salesforce.com customers worldwide. Force.com-based applications have the advantage of the infinite scalability and elasticity that cloud-computing offers. Cloud-based sites eliminate the need for the technical infrastructure that has long made eCommerce a challenge for businesses of all sizes.
In addition to harnessing the innate power of cloud-computing, the CloudCraze eCommerce solution provides the following industry-leading features:
- Delegated Administration which allows functional business leads to administer featured products and change visual elements of the system.
- Flexible and extensible UI architecture allows expedited branding of websites
- Promotions and coupon functionality
- Advanced search and filtering
- Built in Content Management System (CMS) capabilities
Companies that are already using the Salesforce.com customer relationship management system will find the move to CloudCraze eCommerce especially compelling. CloudCraze allows both CRM and eCommerce applications to reside on the same platform, leveraging the same Customer and Product metadata objects. This eliminates the need for complex and expensive integrations required by traditional premise-based eCommerce solutions.
"CloudCraze offers something for any company wishing to sell goods online," says Bill Loumpouridis, EDL President and CEO. "Fast orders, low-cost configuration and infinite scalability -- all with a pay-as-you-go approach. For the past decade, we have built and deployed best-in-class enterprise-scale, on-premise eCommerce solutions. Now we are leading the charge by taking this expertise into the Cloud."
"The CloudCraze mission is simple -- to harness the power of Cloud-computing to deliver instantaneous inexpensive eCommerce capabilities to benefit businesses of all sizes," said Loumpouridis. "CloudCraze makes Cloud Computing very real and achievable. Infinite scalability meets minimal IT infrastructure with an intuitive interface that allows marketers to make quick updates to their websites to keep customers coming back for more."
