ITema Releases E-Commerce Module for MODx Content Management System
New London, CT, 07/30/2007 – ITema, Inc. today released KiweeCommerce, a full-featured e-commerce module for the MODx content management system (CMS), to the Open Source community under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
KiweeCommerce includes extensive product configuration and options management tools, tax and discount rate tables, and support for PayPal, Google Checkout, and Authorize.Net payment gateways. The module is tightly integrated into MODx, and allows business owners to easily maintain their own product catalogs. Administrators may configure and manage KiweeCommerce through intuitive menus in the MODx CMS Manager.
KiweeCommerce was developed with external application integration in mind. Transactions are posted to audit tables which external applications can poll to enable integration, such as automatic sales order posting to an accounting or customer relationship management (CRM) system. Integration is not required for KiweeCommerce to function, but this support makes it much easier for developers to add such functionality when desired.
KiweeCommerce is available for immediate download by Open Source developers from http://www.kiweecommerce.org/. A self-installer is included which makes it easy to add KiweeCommerce to an existing Web site. A commercial license that provides full support is also available.
ITema was founded in February 2007 to address the technology gap currently faced by small business. Having developed the Blackbird ESB, KiweeCommerce module, and other important tools for application integration, the company is rapidly moving toward the September release of a commercial "on demand" software service for small business that allows popular applications to exist together as one complete, integrated solution.
