"OpenSales, Inc., the leading provider of open source e-commerce applications, today announced it has been chosen over Oracle and other software vendors to completely integrate the fulfillment, physical storefront and e-commerce offerings of Nutripeak, Inc., one of North America's leading suppliers of nutritional sports supplements. Slated for completion in the fourth quarter of this year, the project will bring together Nutripeak's real-time storefront points-of-sale, warehouse operations and inventory management with financial reporting and e-commerce functions through the OpenSales AllCommerce e-commerce application. Nutripeak will also use the application to replace the Intershop software it currently uses for its commercial Web site."

"Nutripeak, which recently merged with Sports Nutrition Depot to become the largest non-franchise nutritional supplement supplier in North America, will offer over 3,000 separate items, including special performance supplements, herbs and botanicals, vitamins and other supplements demanded by athletes and physical fitness enthusiasts. The company plans to use OpenSales AllCommerce for its own internal operations as well as for other suppliers of health goods for which it acts as a major fulfillment center."

"We chose OpenSales because of the vendor's ability to implement a complete solution at a fraction of the cost and time of proprietary offerings," said Barry D. Blake, CEO of Nutripeak, Inc. "Plus, the open source approach allowed us to freely evaluate the OpenSales AllCommerce source code before we made our decision, something that Oracle and other vendors were unable to offer."
