Systems Design Inc. has released its Prism e-Commerce 3.1 software, which builds upon the previous release to give distributors a destination for customers to place orders, review order histories and check inventory on the World Wide Web.

New features include the ability to select lot/shade numbers and unit quantities, run expanded product searches and allow touch-points that display credit card status and open or invoiced order information.

Prism e-Commerce was developed utilizing Internet-based programming languages such as Java, HTML and XML which, the company says, allows the program to be extremely flexible.
