New Software Enables E-Commerce Sites to Expand Globally

Share this article:
E-commerce software provider Mercado Software, Palo Alto, CA, and business-to-business technology concern Intelisys Electronic Commerce Inc., New York, have launched a joint e-commerce search technology that will help online buyers and sellers to expand into international e-commerce.


The product, dubbed IntuiFind, allows suppliers across Intelisys' client base to create online catalogs that they can maintain themselves. Buyers can search in plain language across multiple catalogs by size, price, manufacturer, part number or a combination of those options. Buyers also can compare products across sites, even if they don't have exact keyword matches.


IntuiFind supports and translates 13 European languages.


"Say you're looking for a chair, but you wanted the query in French, so you had 'chaise.' Even if you put that, you'll still be able to find it out of a back-end English database," said Steve Bernardez, director of business development at Mercado Software. "You could misspell it in French and use a synonym for it in French, and it'll still pull it out of the English database."
