Author Solutions, Inc.
Utilizing Microsoft technologies to build an integrated E-Commerce platform
For ASI establishing a new E-Commerce platform has been nothing short of transformational. By collaborating with Innovative Architects, the publishing house revamped its business identity, improved client communications and maximized growth. Innovative Architects helped ASI achieve several business goals at once by using two key technology solutions: Microsoft Commerce Server 2007 and Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 (BTS).
As an all-important first step, Innovative Architects connected ASI’s core portal platform for to the eCommerce front end. This allowed each system user to access consistent data, reports and tools. With this robust system in place, the Author Solutions team can more efficiently manage customers, catalogs and E-Commerce data. This improved efficiency translated into an increased customer base.
Innovative Architects further enhanced the company’s capabilities by designing
an updated, secure integration and web services integration layer. This layer employs
an application auditing framework, message routing and a solid development integration
platform. By combining pre-integrated architectures, up-to-the-minute software components
and reliable methodologies, Innovative Architects created the cross-industry and
industry-specific solutions necessary to advance ASI’s business conditions.
By partnering with Innovative Architects, ASI leveraged Microsoft technologies to
achieve powerful, scalable solutions while accomplishing its core business objectives.
“BizTalk and Commerce Server enabled Author Solutions to quickly build an E-Commerce platform helping to standardize common technologies. Our Innovative Architects team helped apply the knowledge of Microsoft technology to enhance and service Author Solutions to fuel growth and proactive decisions.”
