REDMOND, Wash., March 16, 2001 — Microsoft Corp. today announced that Microsoft® Commerce Server 2000 will receive the Crossroads 2001 A-List award for best
E-Commerce Platform at the eighth annual Crossroads Conference this weekend. Among vendors like IBM Corp., Blue Martini Software Inc. and BEA Systems Inc., Commerce Server 2000 distinguished itself by providing the critical e-commerce infrastructure that companies need to build an effective online business.
Over the years, Microsoft’s accomplishments in e-commerce have not gone unnoticed. In 1999, Microsoft Site Server 3.0 Commerce Edition, Commerce Server 2000’s predecessor, was also honored with a seat on the Crossroads A-List.
“Microsoft Commerce Server 2000 provides a comprehensive platform to build on,”
said Nina Lytton, president of Crossroads-OSA.
“It enables businesses to achieve faster time to market by eliminating the need to integrate piece parts and allows them to focus their efforts on adding business-specific value to their site.”
This latest honor from Crossroads adds to Commerce Server’s already prestigious portfolio of awards since its release in November 2000. Recognized with a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice award and a Smart Business Magazine A-List award in the commerce servers category, Microsoft Commerce Server 2000 is quickly proving that it is the best choice for customers looking to build an extensible e-commerce solution to meet their business needs.
