Using Active-e now gives you the ability to build your own solutions - but why would you when our partner Vortx has the development already done. Our partners at Vortx have built a shopping cart called AIMstorefront. It's a secure, bootstrap responsive shopping cart that is deeply integrated with AIM. Complete inventory integration with AIM ensures your inventory is up-to-date at all times, regardless of where a sale takes place. It can connect with AIM to provide your customers with secure online access to their account. Customers can make payments, update a credit card and review their account history. Security, accessibility and functionality are all maintained and updated behind the scenes by Vortx. Online & integration options are ever evolving and so are the features of both AIMstorefront and AIM.
