ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, December 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Bitrix, Inc. (http://www.bitrixsoft.com?r1=prbx&r2=45mvideo), a technology trendsetter in web business communications, announces the availability of a turnkey e-commerce solution that allows launching a full-scale online shop in only 45 minutes. Additionally, thanks to Amber Ergonomics, an innovative approach in content management usability, small and mid-size businesses can easily orchestrate their e-commerce solution in-house without costly consulting or dedicated IT staff.

Bitrix Site Manager delivers a turnkey solution (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/products/cms/features/turnkey_websites.php?r1 =prbx&r2=45mvideo) that contains a pre-set online shop structure, demo content, powerful sales analytics and connection to payment systems like PayPal and Authorize.NET.

The structure and content are based on the best practices for implementing online shops as gathered from thousands of websites using the Bitrix e-commerce platform. The structure contains commonly used sections for content-rich product catalogue, ordering, delivery and contact information. The demo content, along with the structure gives a snapshot of how a typical online shop may look like. Customers can choose among a variety of pre-set color schemes and design templates to add their website original appearance.

After familiarizing with the suggested structure and content, editors can either selectively clear out the demo data or simply edit the existing pages and menus directly on the website. Intuitive wizards will guide editors through the step-by-step procedure of setting up new catalogs and other important website sections. The whole process of launching the full-scale online shop, external complications notwithstanding, fits in the industry-leading 45 minutes.

Using the flexible price management feature, editors can create virtually unlimited pricing groups for different types of customers, quickly launch special promotion campaigns, juggle discounts and multiple currencies, and introduce a variety of delivery and payment options.

Extensive information about completed orders is accumulated in the centralized database, allowing order tracking, troubleshooting, research of correlated purchases and in-depth marketing analysis for better understanding of customer behavior, maximizing business results.

The integrated SEO module (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/products/cms/features/seo.php?r1=prbx&r2=45mvideo) automatically optimizes the online shop content to get the best rating positions in popular search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. With better ratings, the website will get more visitors and ensure better online sales and marketing results.

Importantly, Bitrix Site Manager comes with the integrated PRO+PRO(TM) security framework ( http://www.bitrixsoft.com/products/intranet/security.php?r1=prbx&r2 =45mvideo). It contains a set of must-have technologies to ensure online business continuity from the very beginning without the need to spend money on third-party security software.

In the store front, Bitrix Site Manager provides online shop customers with unrivaled simplicity in placing orders as well as additional services that leads to improved customer satisfaction. Friendly wizards gently guide the customer through the whole ordering process and order processing notifications can be sent via e-mail. Each customer possesses a personal shopping account with detailed history of completed orders for future references.
