AdvantageCS offers a fully integrated eCommerce platform called Cider. Cider is a feature-rich eCommerce platform that includes powerful shopping cart and self-service capabilities, a marketing portal for marketers to create and assign promotions, a flexible administration portal for customizing the look and feel of the site, and built-in support for third-party plug-ins.

How Cider Works

Cider shares the same business logic engine as Advantage, which means it has access to the thousands of Advantage features--sophisticated subscription models, access and authentication for entitlement management, creative promotional offers, varied payment/billing options, and comprehensive self-service features to name a few.

Key Architectural Considerations

The platform is also designed with key architectural considerations: security, scalability, and extensibility. Clients can create their own themes, extend the existing functionality, and build new functionality.

Additional eCommerce Services

While the platform is designed to empower clients with the ability to develop their own sites, ACS recognizes that this may not be the best model for all clients. ACS offers wide-ranging web development services, from assistance implementing Cider to consulting and training client web developers how to integrate with our software. Additional services include website rebuilds, web applications security, access and authentication integration, single-sign on techniques, and custom website applications.
