Netgateway Announces Forthcoming Release of StoresOnline 4.0

Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Netgateway, Inc.

    OREM, Utah, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Netgateway, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   NGWY), a leading technology and training company
 delivering eServices to small businesses and entrepreneurs, today announced
 the release of its acclaimed StoresOnline software platform, version 4.0, with
 delivery to the public scheduled for Second Quarter of 2001.  Netgateway also
 announced several new features that will be included in StoresOnline 4.0
     Netgateway's mission of providing Internet solutions tailored for small
 businesses and entrepreneurs is manifested in its StoresOnline platform, which
 is used by the company to create eCommerce-enabled websites for this market
 segment.  Several of the company's customers also use this platform to create
 and maintain their sites themselves.
     Netgateway CTO David Rosenvall said, "Over the past several years we have
 continued to refine our StoresOnline platform, with the constant goal of
 making it as easy as possible for individuals and small business owners to
 use, and at the same time, keeping its functionality second to none.  We
 continue to receive very positive feedback from our clients, and StoresOnline
 4.0 will once again stress ease of use, along with industry leading
 functionality for this market."
     Netgateway VP of Business Development, Clint McKinlay, added, "Since 1997,
 StoresOnline has won praise from industry critics and small businesses alike.
 Though it has received acclaim in the form of impressive trade-show rankings
 and editorial reviews, the most meaningful praise has come from our customers,
 the small businesses and entrepreneurs that are running their Internet
 businesses with this software."
 
     StoresOnline 4.0 will contain many exciting new features:
 
     Dynamic Images
     Customers will be able to create images dynamically, rather than being
 limited to uploading their own images or using stock photos or clip art.
 Images can be created by allowing manipulation of multiple image elements,
 such as background color, text, borders, and so forth, in a simple point and
 click environment.  Individuals and small business owners will have the power
 to create truly graphical storefronts, which will allow them to compete with
 businesses with much larger design budgets.
 
     Auto Responders and Permission Marketing
     These features will allow customers to use email as a more powerful
 marketing ally.  Automatic responses to email can be used to respond when an
 email is received, and/or responses can be sent out periodically, at
 predetermined times.  Permission Marketing allows customers to avoid spamming,
 and at the same time enjoy the power for bulk emails to be sent to specific
 buying groups, and at predetermined times.  These are hotly demanded tools
 used to increase customer loyalty and repeat buying.
 
     Multiple Price Sets (Multiple Catalogs)
     This feature allows the customer to offer the same products at different
 prices for different buyers, in a password-protected environment.  In other
 words, a single site can show an entire product line with specific prices
 based on the individual viewing the site.  It also allows for the use of
 multiple currencies, and includes proper currency syntax.  Multiple price sets
 open a whole new world of opportunity for wholesale or international
 businesses.
 
     Customizable Forms
     Merchants can set up secure, encrypted forms with improved ease to collect
 sensitive information from their customers.  This is especially useful for
 service-based businesses, as these forms can be used for job, loan, or
 insurance applications, questionnaires, bids, quotes, and so forth.  eCommerce
 means more than just selling widgets to these service-based businesses, and
 StoresOnline 4.0 will address the specific needs of these businesses.
 
     More Easily Customized Page Content
     Page elements, such as text, images, links, headers, footers, etc., can
 now be added and changed with even greater ease.
 
     Products
     StoresOnline has always offered best of breed functionality in the area of
 product set-up and maintenance.  Products can include innumerable variations
 (such as sizes, colors, etc.), and can even be set up to resolve variation
 conflicts (e.g. we do not currently offer the red shirt in extra large, etc.).
 StoresOnline 4.0 will also perfect the ability to offer a binary
 (downloadable) product, such as software or a book, making it possible for a
 merchant to sell any electronic product, and fulfill the order at the point of
 sale.
 
     Publishing
     Customers will now be able to use a site preview function that will allow
 them to view their site and their admin tool in windows side by side.  They
 can then commit their sites to be published and go live on the Internet, when
 they are satisfied their site is exactly as they want it to appear.
 
     Import/Export
     This feature allows merchants to import and export various product data,
 order data, and site HTML and XML.  This greatly improves time efficiency, as
 it removes the need to take product data in and out of a site, one product at
 a time.  Orders can also be exported in masse for use in other applications
 such as Intuit QuickBooks or Microsoft Money.  This allows for easier
 bookkeeping and tax preparation.
