LONDON and HAMBURG, Germany, October 1 /PRNewswire/ --

- ePages 6 Revolutionises e-Commerce via Cloud Computing

ePages, Europe's leading provider of e-commerce solutions for hosting providers and medium-sized businesses, today announces the launch of ePages 6 - the latest version of its e-commerce software that combines cloud computing with advanced features to deliver a service for everyone.

With the addition of new business models, Web 2.0 functions and an appointment management and booking function, ePages 6 has widened the scope of e-commerce beyond the traditional "sales" model. As a result, restaurants, hotels and many other service-oriented businesses like doctors and lawyers can now promote their business through a professional website and communicate with customers via the very same plug & play approach which online businesses have been benefitting from for many years.

ePages has been developing software with an emphasis on Software as a Service for more than ten years. By operating via cloud computing, heralded as the future of e-commerce by Gartner and others, ePages 6 allows businesses to focus on what the software provides them and how they can turn this into real business benefits rather than how it is implemented or hosted.

Wilfried Beeck, CEO of ePages, says, "The new version ePages 6 encompasses the entire range of e-commerce opportunities with its diverse business processes. Nowadays, no service company can afford to offer its customers an inferior online presence. With ePages 6, we are offering a platform for everybody who wants to focus on their business - instead of worrying about the installation of software and servers."

ePages 6 is available as 'ePages 6 Hosting' for hosting providers and 'ePages 6 Merchant' for ePages-partners realising projects for medium-sized businesses.

ePages is looking to expand its network of UK resellers for ePages 6.
