POET Software announced the latest releases of its turn-key eCatalog management software solutions for suppliers, ASPs and eMarketplaces. POET’s eCatalog Suite – Supplier Resident Edition (eCS-SR) and eCatalog Suite – Service Provider Edition (eCS-SP) introduce several new features that provide enhanced pricing management, platform and database support, as well as simplified administration for ASPs and eMarketplaces. POET’s flexible pricing management features provide customers with several customization options to reflect the diverse requirements of both suppliers and buyers. With contract pricing, users can create buyer-specific pricing for groups of products or on a product-by-product basis. With volume discounts or tier pricing, suppliers can define different prices based upon item quantity. In addition to custom pricing, users can also employ a calculation-based pricing method, incorporating discounts based on percentages or fixed amounts in relation to list prices. POET added new database and platform support, giving ASPs and eMarketmakers the option to run eCS-SR and eCS-SP using the POET object database or Oracle’s 8.0 or 8i on Solaris, Windows NT and Windows 2000 platforms. The latest versions of eCatalog Suite-Supplier Resident Edition and eCatalog Suite-Service Provider Edition are now available. Pricing for the supplier edition starts at $60,000. Pricing for the service provider edition starts at $175,000. www.poet.com
