A true database driven ecommerce solution means that you can have tens of thousands of products, log customers and transactions, offer keyword search features, and manage the entire solution via a browser based interface.
Which database do you prefer? If your suppliers provide you with Excel spreadsheets you can import those directly into eCommerce Software One. eCommerce Software One connects to a Microsoft Access database by default but can just as easily connect it to Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL. This means that you have the vast power and flexibility that a true accessible database format provides. Bulk update your data or do sophisticated queries and reports inside your favorite database.
Of course, you don't need any of these databases to use eCommerce Software One. eCommerce Software One ships with all the tools and a simple interface for importing, adding or editing all of your data. However, power users will appreciate the flexibility that a true database driven solution offers them.
