Following its announcement last week that it would acquire ISS Retail, provider of web-based store point-of-sale systems, Junction Solutions has agreed to acquire ThePage.com, a provider of on-demand e-commerce software. Junction Solutions did not disclose terms.
ThePage.com’s suite of e-commerce software, which is delivered to clients over the Internet on an on-demand software-as-a-service basis, covers multiple functions including a shopping cart, web content management, online coupon management, site search and online pricing and promotions. The suite will re-branded as JunctionEOD, which like other Junction Solutions software was designed in a web-based environment with .Net and other technology from Microsoft Corp.
