Insite Software, a leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) commerce and data-driven solutions for manufacturers and distributors, today introduced its newly re-architected InsiteCommerce platform – InsiteCommerce 4.
The sheer velocity of digital disruption can be overwhelming; to keep pace, organizations must have an agile and scalable digital commerce platform that is easy to own and maintain. The new InsiteCommerce architecture streamlines implementation and management, adding and enhancing customer functionality, while also supporting improved performance and a lower total cost of ownership.
InsiteCommerce 4 represents an innovative modular approach to B2B eCommerce architecture that enables organizations to upgrade faster and more frequently. Significantly re-engineered, InsiteCommerce 4’s modern, scalable service architecture provides the foundation to power the next generation of connected commerce to manage the complexity around B2B interactions.
“The new InsiteCommerce 4 platform meets a wide range of customer scenarios – from organizations needing an out-of-the box eCommerce solution to anchor their digital strategies – to customers looking to re-platform to take advantage of newer digital technologies – to companies with extensive in house resources that need a solid eCommerce platform that offers the opportunity to build highly-specialized commerce scenarios,” said Tony Abena, chief executive officer, Insite Software.
“Combined with the familiar Microsoft .Net development environment, InsiteCommerce 4 can be operated as a responsive application to mitigate the complexities of today’s commerce demands, or as a highly extensible and scalable web development platform that enables organizations to address a wide range of business specific requirements.”
“In today’s highly competitive marketplace, it is vital for us to stay one step ahead of the competition by having the infrastructure in place to enable our customers to quickly access detailed information on our latest product offerings,” said Jeffrey Siegal, chief executive officer, Geriatric Medical and Surgical Supply, a distributor of extended care medical equipment and supplies. “InsiteCommerce 4 is engineered for growth, built with the technology in place enabling us to upgrade quickly to facilitate faster speed to market and better serve our customers.”
InsiteCommerce 4 is built using modern frameworks that strike the optimal balance between extensibility, scalability, performance, and ease of upgrading. This leading architecture provides well-defined extension points and injectable workflow that allow for easier and less expensive upgrades, but still accommodates the most demanding and complex B2B needs. The architecture allows customers to keep current with the latest functionality, enabling them to select platform updates on a more frequent basis, allowing them to maximize their eCommerce platform investment. InsiteCommerce 4 also delivers speed and scalability by leveraging the power of the end-user browser through Angular, RESTful web services, caching, and responsive design.
