Deliver Content to Mobile Phones

Version 7.1 of the system adds several new features for online stores. The most important is functionality, which enables organizations to promote their products through discounts.
The new discount functionality includes a choice of several different discount schemes including fixed amount discounts, volume discounts and BOGOF discounts. Discounts can also be offered during a specific period or to specific users or user groups or only if a user presents a discount code during checkout. The discount schemes can easily be setup by non-technical website administrators.
Improvements for Developers and System Integrators
Finally, the latest version of the Asbru Web Content Management system includes many significant improvements for system integrators and developers. A number of APIs have been added including APIs for archiving, backup and publishing of content items to external servers. The new version also provides an API for integration of Asbru Web Content Management's E-Commerce features with external stock inventory systems and other external databases, services and systems.
There is also new functionality, which makes it easy for organizations to enable website visitors to upload images and files.
