Server Is Built for E-CommerceSGI Global Services, Mountain View, CA, has launched its Internet Server appliance with multiple e-commerce features.
Most of the features stem from a software agreement the firm struck with MercanTec Inc. Financial terms of the deal were not announced.
MercanTec, Naperville, IL, has added applications such as a search engine, sales reporting tools and shopping cart tax calculation to the server. In addition, the payment system does not require repeat customers to give their payment information again.
