This is a unique opportunity to capitalize on the nature of the community and harness the ability of parents and students to work with local businesses for the betterment of themselves and their school.

The primary feature of the tool will be a streamlined process that will provide integrated content and functions organized in a step-by-step flow. The purpose of this is to provide a very simple and easy-to-use order entry process to complete a transaction while in front of the end client, including client payment and billing. 3Rd party seller features enable access to inventories and they can block the slots thus getting preference over the other sales rep.
