Karlsruhe-based specialist for electronic software distribution will handle global eCommerce activities for Taiwanese software publisher.

asknet's flexible framework and business model proves once again that a static one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for global eCommerce.

asknet AG today announced its newest international client, CyberLink Corp., a global player and pioneer in enabling digital multimedia on PCs, consumer electronics and mobile devices. The Karlsruhe-based software company will provide CyberLink with shopping cart, payment and delivery services for its products sold online including the series of prize-winning applications for the playback, creation and distribution of digital media content.

CyberLink CEO Alice Chang explained that the decision to incorporate the asknet platform was based on the company’s unique set of credentials and unmatched partnership approach. “In addition to its outstanding track-record in global eCommerce, asknet won us over with the flexibility of its software architecture and client-tailored adaptations.”

asknet will fulfill orders, deliveries and payment processes for CyberLink products purchased online, including the well-known software PowerDVD and PowerDirector. CyberLink’s software solutions include complete applications for Blu-ray Disc playback and creation, digital home entertainment and touch-enabled media.

“We are honored to be chosen to work with CyberLink on its eCommerce program,” said asknet Co-CEO Michael Konrad. “Our flexible framework and business model has proven again that a static one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for global eCommerce. CyberLink is an excellent fit with our client structure and consolidates our global trajectory.”
