Q: Why did you launch 24Seven Cart?
A: 24SevenCart is the rebranded version of RMSCart – our previous shopping cart solution. RMSCart was primarily developed for retailers using Microsoft Dynamics RMS. However, with the expanding market of both shopping cart and POS systems, we felt the need to introduce newer features in our shopping cart system so that we can serve customers looking for a normal shopping cart and the one that integrates with Dynamics RMS, POS09 or other POS systems.
The result is – we have a complete online store solution that can be customized to integrate with a POS system and at the same time, serve as a stand-alone shopping cart.
The process of integrating the RMS and the online store is accomplished by a web integrator known as RMSlink.
Q: What is 24Seven Cart’s unique competitive advantage?
A: 24SevenCart is truly flexible and scalable online store solution. However, the main competitive advantage that we have and that we can translate into a retailer benefits, is the 100% customization facility of 24SevenCart. Any or all modules of 24SevenCart are customizable so that an online retailer gets the best options to make his store unique and give his shoppers a better shopping experience.

Q: Do you have any other comments about 24SevenCart for ShopTab readers?
A: We believe – ShopTab is a unique platform to multiply sales! Integration with Facebook is a great feature that can help the online retailer to reach more customers within a very short period. Rather than inviting the customer to visit the online store, with ShopTab – the retailer can take the required product to the customer! Similarly, 24SevenCart is a platform that helps the retailer to setup a dynamic shopping interface with domain-specific features that relate only to his line of business. Naturally, a web store powered by 24SevenCart will always retain the customer with an excellent shopping experience like ShopTab.
2010 will mark the rise of online retailing. Even the “Internet Retailer” magazine revealed recently that the holiday-season sales growth for online retailing is far more than the growth of retail market as a whole. So, it’s now the time to go online and gear up for more sales. As the old proverb goes – “Hit the iron while it’s hot!”
