"The company formerly known as OpenSales is accelerating its
e-commerce applications development into high gear with a unique
targeted open source development system and some formidable new
concepts in e-commerce software architecture."
"Zelerate, based in San Mateo, Calif. and founded under the name
OpenSales in 1998, provides e-commerce software through an open
source development model. The name change was meant to prevent the
misconception that OpenSales is a sales-force automation company or
a direct-sales firm, says Bonnie Crater, Zelerate CEO. The company
decided to 'change to a new brand that will allow us the
flexibility to develop that brand as a leading e-commerce company,'
"Zelerate AllCommerce, the company's flagship product, is freely
available through the developer site, Zelerate.org. Zelerate
involves open source developers to promote innovation and to roll
new features, requested by customers or suggested by developers,
into upcoming releases quickly, Crater says."
