Ecommerce solutions encompass two groups of solutions. Collaborative web
portals provide your company with the ability to collaborate through a
website with clients, partners, resellers and 3rd parties without the
shopping cart capability.
A Collaborative web portal is
integrated with your current website and will allow you to create logins
through Tradepoint or through a registration form on your website with any
group of contacts you have within Tradepoint. Your Member's Area will
provide a menu of tools that you can collaborate on with various contacts
on a variety of items including:

Tradepoint ECommerce makes purchasing goods from your website easy,
intuitive and simple.

collaboration through the web portal.

within Tradepoint your changes are pushed to the website as you
synchronize. All data is compressed and then encrypted with the triple
512K layered encryption and sent through the back channels on the web to
the node server to be pushed to your website and other machines in your
company using Tradepoint and then decompressed to be viewable on your
website and within Tradepoint to view and work with the latest data.
This provides an added layer of
security for your financial and customer information that you won't find
with most Ecommerce solutions. Further, Tradepoint's internal security
profiles allow for specific information to only be viewable by profile and
a single login so, your customers and partners only see their account
information and no one else's. This unique combination of synchronization
and security technology provide a winning combination for companies
