Portal Prodigy, Inc Announce Fulfillment Feature Enhancements

Robbinsville, NJ – August 12, 2004 - Robbinsville, NJ - J. Brock Miller, CTO of portal Prodigy, Inc., announced, "PortalProdigy now provides the option, where applicable, to decide when orders should be considered fulfilled for purposes of recording sales transactions, creating invoice dates, and settling credit card charges."

Fulfillment is the process of delivering ordered goods or services to the customer. "In some cases, recording of the fulfillment process is performed automatically by PortalProdigy; Exchange orders are an example of this. Exchange orders are automatically fulfilled when the Exchange record is saved. Other features provide multiple options; Event Registration is an example of this. Event Registrations can be have fulfillment recorded at the time of registration, automatically on the event date, or manually by an Administrator." Instructed Mr. Miller.

When an Order has been fulfilled, PortalProdigy sets the Order’s Order Status field to Fulfilled. If some of the Order’s items cannot be fulfilled, the Order Status is set to Partially Fulfilled.

Product Orders can also be configured to post (record) sales transactions to the GL at the time the order is placed. The PortalProdigy Product Download feature automatically fulfills downloaded items at the time the order is placed.

Mr. Miller further explained, "PORTALPRODIGY also supports third party fulfillment.
