Stone Edge 2007 User Conference Scheduled for June 2-3
BLUE BELL, PA (May 31, 2007) --Stone Edge Technologies, Inc. today announced that the Stone Edge Order Manager, the leading business management program for small to mid-sized Web retailers, is now integrated with the CommerceV3 shopping cart system, U-PIC discounted package insurance, and the Assurz 100% Satisfaction Guarantee third-party refund service. These newest integrations will be announced at the Stone Edge 2007 User Conference being held June 2 and 3 in San Jose.
Highlights of the conference will include a "Shopping Cart Shoot-Out" where attendees will compare notes on the pros and cons of different shopping cart systems; accounting consultant Roxanne Brown speaking on "Getting the Most Out Of QuickBooks with The Stone Edge Order Manager;" and SEO expert Nathan Focht offering insights on search engine optimization in "SEO¨Cthe Do-It-Yourself Bootcamp." There will also be separate workshops and roundtable discussions for new and "power" users of the Order Manager.
The Stone Edge Order Manager is used by nearly 2,000 online merchants to automate and streamline their operations. The application can import orders from about 30 shopping cart systems including MonsterCommerce, Cart32 and osCommerce, as well as other sales channels including Amazon, eBay and Shop.com. It also handles orders from a built-in Point-of-Sale system and those that arrive via mail, fax or email. It tracks inventory, processes payments, helps with picking, packing and shipping, and otherwise simplifies the process of running a small online business.
The newest integrations offered by the Stone Edge Order Manager include:
CommerceV3 (www.commercev3.com), an on-demand e-commerce service that allows multi-channel merchants to create, populate, customize, maintain and track e-commerce storefronts without in-house software or servers. The application, the online store, the staging area and everything else is entirely hosted in a Tier 1 Data Center connected directly to the Internet.
U-PIC (www.u-pik.com), discounted package insurance for packages shipped via major carriers such as UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service. The package is shipped by the carrier but insured by U-PIC at a cost that is 60 to 80% less than conventional insurance. Programs are available for shippers of every size with no minimum requirements.
Assurz (www.assurz.com), a third-party shopper satisfaction guarantee service designed to drive sales for online merchants. The Assurz 100% Satisfaction Guarantee enables online stores with limited return policies to offer an extended 90-day evaluation period with a full refund of merchandise and shipping charges as well as free return shipping and packaging. Assurz pays all costs and procedures related to the guarantee, including the consumer¡¯s refund.
The fourth annual Stone Edge User Conference & Meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in San Jose. The meeting was scheduled to directly precede the 2007 Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition that will be held June 4-7 at the nearby San Jose Convention Center, so User Conference attendees can easily attend both events. Stone Edge Technologies will also be exhibiting at the 2007 Internet Retailer Conference in Booth 1023.
