The key to the system is simplicity of use for the site administrator. Business owners and their employees do not require any special training or skills to make full use of the system’s powerful features. Even the most inexperienced computer user can easily take control of every aspect of maintaining a web based store. Whether adding, deleting or editing products and company information, or processing customers orders and payments, everything is done through Smart Merchant’s easy to use back office system.
