FastLane Online is Carleton Technologies's answer to the online needs of your business; FastLane Online is a flexible tool for giving your business the e-commerce edge.

Providing customers with an easy-to-use website, FastLane Online is fully integrated with Carleton Technologies's FastLane Business Management Solution, which means that customers can access accurate information about your products and services, and existing staff can easily maintain the website and process e-commerce orders without additional training.

Search Engines

Fast, flexible search engines are an important element of any online business; if your customers have to wait while locating products, they will look somewhere else. Carleton Technologies knows the importance of quick search results and as such FastLane Online provides you with the fastest search engine technology available.

The "Quick Search" general product search engine provides images and product information with a few clicks of the button. Searchable by Description, Keyword, brand, or item number, the "Quick Search" provides your customers with the information they're looking for. The search results pages are customizable, enabling you to provide the search information in a format which will be the most useful for your customers.

Because of FastLane Online's integration with the FastLane Business Management System, all product information on the website is accurate, with in-stock numbers updated every 10 minutes.

Online Catalogue

The FastLane Online's Catalogue software provides your business with the best possible solution for selling hard-to-search-for items. The branching folder structure of the catalogue allows for easy searching of products, by type, colour or size, and with up to 99 catalogues, each with 7 levels of folders, there will always be room for every product you sell.

All catalogue information appears on the website in a standardized format; FastLane Online will even automatically resize the product image to create a standard-size thumbnail image, with the larger image only one click away. The Online Catalogue pages are completely customizable, enabling you to create the catalogue you want for your business. Because the Online Catalogue software was created with your business in mind, it has an intuitive user interface so that it can be easily maintained by your staff.

Flexible Shipping Options

FastLane Online's Flexible Shipping Options provide flexibility both for your business and for your customers. FastLane Online allows you to configure your shipping options using several different variables, such as customer location, number of items in the order, and maximum charge. By customizing the shipping options and enabling customers to choose the shipping option which is best for them, your business can both optimize shipping costs and promote customer satisfaction.

Increased Cost-Effectiveness

The seamless integration between FastLane Online and the FastLane Business Management Solution provides your business with an easy and cost-effective way of processing online orders. FastLane Online automatically prints a barcoded picking list, and is integrated with an online payment gateway, so that there is no time wasted with re-entry of online orders.

If an item ordered online is currently out of stock, FastLane Online will automatically create a backorder for that item in the FastLane Business Management Solution and fill that order when the product arrives. FastLane Online is able to keep your e-commerce costs, and the staff time required to fill an order, to a minimum, while maximizing your online revenue.

Security

A completely secure e-commerce solution, FastLane Online offers full-strength, 128-bit RSA encryption, secure communications protocols (SSLv2, v3, and TSL v1.0), support for X.509 certificate authentication and support for session catching for better SSL performance.

Carleton Technologies will completely configure your FastLane Online server whether you are hosting your own site or having Carleton Technologies host it for you.
