Drumbeat 2000 e-commerce edition

Using a visual drag-and-drop interface and sophisticated wizards, Drumbeat enables you to build ASP applications that access and update data in real time and work across all major browsers - without any manual coding.

Also included are all the tools necessary to develop online stores. Whether you stock 10 items or thousands, stores can be developed using built-in tax and shipping calculations; sophisticated merchandising options such as discounts, cross-selling and frequent shopper points; and automatic generation of order confirmations. Online real-time credit card verification is also possible; the downside is that this is only available through a US vendor. There are no plans to incorporate an Australian version using local facilities, according to the local distributors, Firmware.

True to its word, Drumbeat 2000 can create flexible online systems very quickly once you have mastered the nuances. The tutorials, wizards, help functions and manuals are of a very high quality.

I like Drumbeat, and the e-commerce edition does its job admirably - with the previous caveats. If I had to build a full e-commerce site, I would certainly use it in preference to other applications. However, to quickly throw together more basic sites, this version of Drumbeat is probably too much, and it's pricey at $915.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
