The Candy Apple Company is the leading provider of Candy Apples in the State of Texas. The Candy Apple Company has no retail locations and has been strictly a mail order operation since its inception in 1998. The Candy Apple Company offers 5 varieties of Candy Apples to their commercial customers. They want to simplify the ordering process, lower billing and accounts receivable costs, and receive payments 24 hours a day.
The Sage Gateway and Virtual Terminal make it easy for merchants like The Candy Apple Company to increase efficiency by putting their storefront online. The Shopping Cart extensions within the Virtual Terminal allowed The Candy Apple Company to easily customize their Shopping Cart and Shipping Options.
Rather than use the Virtual Terminal's built in product management area, the developers for The Candy Apple Company chose to create their own 'form' based solution to interact with the shopping cart based on Sage's shopping cart specifications. The result is a clean and simple product order form. The product form integration works best for businesses that sell a small number of products that can be easily described and viewed on one form.

The Metropolitan Water Works Company is the billing and collection division for the Water District in Alexandria, Virginia. The Metropolitan Water Works is looking for a way to reduce costs and allow residential customers to pay their monthly bills via the Internet.
The Metropolitan Water Works Company needed a more advanced integration solution. Their web based payment customer interface must be able to interact with their internal database systems to verify account information, billing cycles, and amount dues for its customers. So rather than use the Sage Payment Solutions shopping cart to gather transaction data, they will use the technical specifications to integrate their own customized interface to the Sage Gateway.
The COM/ATL Object allows the Metropolitan Water Works Company to control all aspects of their interface and pass transactions for authorization real-time behind the scenes. All transactions are then accumulated in the Virtual Terminal and settled automatically at 3:00 AM EST by the Sage Gateway.
