1         Overview

PowerClicks, which PCI created in 2003, is a fully functional e-commerce solution including keyword searching with customizable results view, lightbox management and distribution, customizable pricing matrix, secure sales transaction and asset downloads, as well as financial and sales reporting and many other features.  More importantly, PowerClicks can be tightly integrated with many existing Enterprise Digital Asset Management (EDAM) solutions, thus streamlining the image archives to e-commerce workflow by increasing the ease which images and data can be imported into the e-commerce system, providing real-time access to e-commerce order and sales information, and eliminating confusion over image identification.  Perhaps the most significant benefit is the confidence that any customization or change that is necessary can and will be completed correctly and to your specification by Power Consultants Incorporated.
