Infopia expanded its Web Services component of the new Infopia Transact eCommerce platform. The expansion provides new capabilities that allow Infopia customers to further customize and streamline their business processes, while leveraging the power of the Infopia Transact eCommerce platform.

Web Services is an internet-enabled technology that connects software systems using XML. Infopia customers can use Web Services to automate data flow between their existing in-house business systems and the Infopia Transact platform.

With the expansion of Infopia's Web Services, Infopia customers now have access to advanced order management functionality that allows customers to handle transactions such as phone orders or non-inventory item sales in the Transact platform and centralize more of their business for easier tracking, analysis, and improvement. Customers now have faster and more advanced search capabilities when accessing their inventory, order and customer data, helping improve performance and increase the functionality of their applications.
