Austin, Texas – (The Hosting News) – June 7, 2006 – Apollo Hosting has launched the latest shopping cart technology with MIVA Merchant Fast Track. A streamlined e-commerce solution designed especially for new businesses, the new solution is built around five key steps to success, each accessible in the program through a wizard-based interface.
Martin Field, CEO of Apollo Hosting explained, ”There is a definite need in the industry for a powerful, yet intuitive shopping cart system, and MIVA Small Business has provided that system with Fast Track. Many carts are too complex for the beginner, and provide little or no guidance on how to succeed on the web. Fast Track lays out those steps in a simple, direct manner, and weâ€™re excited to offer it.”
The five steps to success with MIVA Merchant Fast Track are: 1) build the store, 2) stock the store, 3) set up the business, 4) run the store, and 5) marketing. Each element of success is laid out with the appropriate steps to take inside the program, making it easy for beginners or seasoned ecommerce professionals to follow along. Fast Track is purpose built for newcomers to online ecommerce website hosting.
MIVA Merchant Fast Track combines inventory and customer management, payment processing, shipping calculations, and affiliate systems in one package. Combine the administration tools, powerful store design tools, advanced catalog management with inventory tracking, and marketing services, and MIVA Merchant Fast Track is destined to take its place among the top tier of ecommerce solutions on the web.
James Harrell, Vice President and General Manager of MIVA Small Business commented, ”The development of MIVA Merchant Fast Track is another example of MIVA’s continued commitment to provide partners with reliable and easy-to-use tools, helping small businesses thrive in a very competitive online market.”
According to Apollo Hosting, it is among the first to bring this product in hosted form to the web. A strong partnership and lasting relationship with MIVA Small Business allows Apollo to provide MIVA Merchant Fast Track at significant discounts. Apollo’s existing money-back guarantees make trying it out virtually risk free.
MIVA Merchant Fast Track is available as a monthly add-on service via Apollo Hosting’s premium shared hosting plans, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers. Apollo Hosting continues to offer the more sophisticated MIVA Merchant 5 shopping cart system for advanced users, providing a full range of ecommerce hosting options to prospective customers.
