4D NET Center Presents 4DBK, the Latest Version of its e-Commerce Solution

4D NET Center Presents 4DBK, the Latest Version of its e-Commerce Solution

BIEL/BIENNE, Switzerland, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- In June 2005, 4D entrusted its strategic partner 4D NET Center with developing and publishing 4D Business Kit (4DBK). After two years of intensive development, here is the latest version of 4DBK 3.0, a powerful and economical e-Commerce solution.

In addition to numerous major new features, two complementary products have been added to 4DBK. The 4DBK range of products now satisfies all the needs encountered by those working in the e-Commerce market: merchants, designers and web hosts.

4DBK Merchant: is a software package that manages storefronts and on-line stores.

4DBK Designer: is a development tool for e-Commerce sites, which allows you to create an unlimited number of storefronts and on-line stores with payment gateways.

4DBK Hoster: is a powerful and dynamic Web server, requiring no administration, to host 4DBK storefronts and on-line stores.

Performance, Speed and Safety

Performance of 4DBK 3.0 is 10 times faster than previous versions thanks to the new Web engine (HTTP 1.1). The new database engine considerably improves the speed at which it accesses data (up to 100 times faster). And thanks to its integrated log and backup module, the new engine guarantees an increased level of security, and enables an automated data recovery in case of system failure. Improvements also include new memory management and a dynamic cache system

Productivity Gains and Controlled Costs

4DBK Designer enables Web site designers and developers to create an unlimited number of on-line stores with the purchase of a single product. This powerful tool also allows valuable productivity gains through its development language, which is fully compatible with existing Web tools. Therefore, the on-line store and storefront templates provided are completely open and flexible.

Flexible and User-Friendly

Features such as promotional vouchers, gift certificates, wish lists and customized prices are all part of the innovations most expected by e-Merchants. Data exchange and integration with existing managing tools have not been forgotten. 4DBK 3.0 allows you to import and export data in XML format and offers full integration with existing systems through its new 4DBK Web Services (WSDL and SOAP). Moreover, 4DBK is multi-platform and works both on Macintosh and Windows systems.

"We wanted to offer to our customers the freedom to choose which application will communicate with 4DBK: MS Excel, MySQL, 4D or ERPs like MS Navision, SAP, Oracle." declares Maurice Inzirillo, Director of 4D NET Center.

Simplified implementation, ergonomic graphical interface, local processing and automated synchronization engine make the product easily accessible and user-friendly.

Automated Hosting and Customization

4DBK Hoster enables Internet service providers to offer fully automated hosting services with a set of mechanisms by simply launching the application. It is possible to customize the hosting services offered to each store by setting up the CGIs and specific access for each merchant. 4DBK 3.0 can also interface with PHP, Python, PERL, MySQL or any other database engine in order to enrich the possibilities offered by 4DBK 3.0, or to enable the migration from an OS Trade type solution towards 4DBK 3.0. An example of integration of PHP/MySQL with 4DBK 3.0 is proposed for that purpose.

"We have been using 4DBK for almost 2 years as merchants and we are also developing sites as service providers," explains Luc Stell from Acredia Info. "This software is flexible and adaptable to the majority of the cases we encounter. Beyond a long list of new features, version 3 offers much flexibility to both merchants and developers. Each of the three products is specifically adapted to its type of users, but the product coherence remains intact, and the new version proves even faster for the majority of the operations." Stell concludes.

Performance, rich features, flexibility, simplified implementation and publication are the main assets of this new version.

Price and Availability:

For each product, a full trial version that is valid for 30 days is available for download from our Web site http://www.4dbk.com/.
