Alain Ghiai founder, commented, "This licensing offering is the first in many milestones the Company wishes to explore in regards to its back-end architecture for online retailers. Our technology offers a best-of-class solution for retailers wanting to enter the fast growing online retail market in the USA or anywhere in the world, at an affordable price range. The European license presents a large revenue stream for the Company in addition to its online sales and we are extremely pleased with this new relationship. Retailers can now afford entry to a sophisticated customized architecture with a low implementation fee and a low monthly maintenance. We will offer our proprietary 'wizard' tool for customization as well as several upgrades to our back-end architecture to our European partner Maisonette Group plc. This marks the beginning of extra added value revenue streams for our valued shareholders form our e-business division."

The "wizard" is designed to significantly simplify the purchasing experience. The algorithms allow the customers to navigate through the selection and shopping process in a way that is far more natural and simple than the usual search/browse options available in all competitive websites. Once the customer decides on a product category or product, the algorithms use aesthetic and mechanical/technical compatibility criteria to simply select the next item by removing all non-compatible items from the selection list. This solves the complex problem of choice and compatibility encountered in online shopping. The beauty of this architecture is that it does not require costly specialized skills needed for management. Future releases will include other languages such as French and German.
