The Seattle-based software company iCat has previewed at Internet World in New York a low cost tool that it claims will allow Internet storefronts to be set up in minutes.
The product is called iCat Lemonade Stand, and the vendor claims it can be used by business persons with no prior training or technical expertise. Lemonade Stand is based on the company's current iCat Electronic Commerce Suite.
Despite its low end positioning, the tool will offer features such as search & index and automatic tax and shipping calculation. The product, which is to be released in the first quarter of 1998, will be available initially on Windows NT, with Unix versions following later.
Lemonade Stand pricing will be based on monthly hosting fees, expected to be less than $100 per month. Initial set-up and the first 30 days use will be free. Seven ISPs in the US have already promised they will offer Lemonade Stand hosting.
