I think we could all agree that 2011 has just flown by! With the year coming to a close we wanted to stop and say thank you to our clients and also to our blog readers. 2011 has been a great year for Cart32 and we wouldn’t be where we are without you. As a company, we have gained some wonderful employees and we have also been hard at work upgrading our software. As this year comes to a close we would like to reflect on the past year and also provide you with insights on the year to come.
Throughout 2011 our development team has been diligently working on version 8 (v8) of our ecommerce software. During the months of November and December we slowly rolled out a beta version of v8 for some of our license holders to test. We can honestly say that there were some good days and bad days, but luckily the good have outweighed the bad. Our beta testers have given us their feedback, which has helped make the cart32 platform better than ever! We are hoping to release v8 in the first quarter of 2012.
For 2012 we have multiple ideas in the planning stages, but one area that we have started implementing is making our ecommerce software easily accessible to the open source template community. As open source website templates like Joomla and WordPress become more and more popular, we feel that it is time for these websites to have a safe and reliable shopping cart solution. Joomla and WordPress templates can provide you with a professional looking website at an affordable cost. Where you don’t want to skimp is on the shopping cart. Having a secure shopping cart is one of the most important elements when running an online business. Melding Joomla or WordPress with Cart32 will provide you with a great looking website and highly customizable ecommerce solution that is safe and secure and comes with great customer support!
As we put a close to 2011 we are excited for what is ahead in 2012. Please remember to think of Cart32 for any of your website, development, merchant services, or shopping cart needs. Again, we thank you for your continued business and we look forward to working with you in 2012!
