WISL Webstore

WISL Webstore consists of an interactive front end that runs on an web server which allows a customer to make price and stock status inquires and specify orders. It is integrated with a hosted pay page service to allow online payment. The order records generated by this mechanism are automatically sent to the store server and handled by the facilities of the WISL Telephone Order Generation System.

WISL Webstore has been adapted to run on a touch screen monitor for use as an in-store inquiry and ordering facility where for security reasons it is preferable to provide access without the use of keyboard or mouse.
