Subject OFBiz / BigFish eCommerce Latest Updates
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 18:24:48 GMT

The latest release of our OFBiz / BigFish eCommerce platform is available.

For more details please visit http://bigfish.salmonllc.com, the "Demo" 
section will provide a good overview of both an eCommerce implementation 
and the BigFish Admin Module.

Points of interest for this release:

  * Performance / Scalability:
      o we have continued to fine-tune the number of SQL's made via
        OFBiz services
      o and now completely use OFBiz caching
      o a great example is www.goldmedalhair.com, this has a good amount
        of products and is very efficient
  * More OFBiz features in BF Admin Module
      o the ability to add new customers
      o the ability to add new orders (we use a shopping / cart /
        checkout paradigm)
  * Payments
      o Cash on Delivery
      o Sagepay with tokenization (credit card is not stored in OFBiz,
        the returned unique "token" is stored as the reference)
  * And various fixes and minor enhancements

We continue to be busy with client implementations and so far both of 
our more recent clients are looking to upgrade to the latest version 
(this includes www.1800fishoil.com and www.eagansemporium.com). New 
client implementations will be announced over the coming months -- of 
particular interest is a couple of solutions for Indian retailers 
(currency in Rupees, different address formats etc.).

On our immediate delivery schedule are two major items, now beyond the 
research stage, well into proof-of-concept and will be in full 
development very shortly:

  * Extended Sites
      o The ability to have a new Product Store and a completely
        re-purposed "extended site" capability
      o All content can be segregated to a specific store
      o Products can be repurposed, or separated into their own catalog
      o Leveraging a lot of the great work done in OOTB OFBiz
  * Entity Sync (staging -> production)
      o The ability to have a "staging" implementation that
        "synchronizes" to Production whenever is appropriate
      o So, our clients can prepare new content, promotions, home page
        imagery, products, pricing throughout a certain amount of time
      o and then "synchronize" everything into Production at one time

Items that may be of interest on our Road Map:

  * Integration with eBay, Google Shopping and Snapdeal
  * Spell checker, with "did you mean" functionality
  * Auto complete on search box
  * EBS Payment Gateway, for Indian market
