MICROSOFT BCENTRAL LAUNCHES EASY WEB SITE CREATION AND HOSTING SERVICE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES.
"Taking a business online can be intimidating for small businesses, but it can also present amazing opportunities to find new customers worldwide," says Deborah Whitman, director of marketing for bCentral. "Site Manager makes it easy for small businesses to seize this opportunity by providing them with simple templates to build their sites. A business can be up and running on the Web in literally minutes."
Site Manager helps small-business owners build their own Web sites by providing straightforward templates, layouts and design guides. Aside from automatically hosting the site, Site Manager offers merchants a number of features at no additional charge to get their sites up and running. For example, Site Manager provides the built-up capability of a "shopping cart," making it easy for customers visiting small-business Web sites to make online purchases. The shopping cart feature simplifies complicated transactions by calculating totals, taxes and shipping charges. In addition, as an optional service, Microsoft and Cardservice International Inc. have teamed up to enable real- time credit card processing for merchants' Web sites.
