Introducing the Web Cube API

We are excited to announce that the next release of Web Cube (anticipated Fall 2011) will roll out with an integral REST API (Application Programming Interface). The API will streamline ERP integrations, facilitate creation of custom content publishing and management tools, and allow for new, innovative integrations with mobile and desktop clients for E-Commerce administrators.

API access can be configured per user, to ensure that the user's permissions are persisted to their tools.

For the technically minded, the following is an example query for all of the orders of August 1st, 2011 (with the response in a simple JSON object):

curl "http://example.com/us/api/v1/orders/order/?fulfillment_dategte=2011-8-1&fulfillment_datelt=2011-8-2&username=john&api_key=XXXXXXXXX"

NOTE: For existing Web Cube customers, the API is available as a module for 4.0 and above.

Web Cube 4.0

We are announcing the Launch of Web Cube 4.0. We have been working hard on adding features and adding polish to deliver an out-of-the box solution that allows for quicker web development.

Web marketing is fast paced and every marketing department needs a CMS solution that can handle creative marketing campaigns and can adapt quickly. You need to be able to leverage pre-existing features, and then quickly customize them to fit the marketing requirements.

With Web Cube Enterprise 4.0 we have added out-of-the box gift cards, gift wrapping, advanced coupon system, affiliate, tiered pricing, volume discounts, store credit, and more. When your marketing department comes up with a challenging campaign to be built, we want to offer the tools to achieve this quickly.

With the 4.0 launch we also focused on polish. We challenged ourselves to build the best designed out-of-the-box front end possible which will make it easier and faster to do front-end development for new websites. We enlisted the support of award winning interactive agency Cuker Interactive to design our front end UI. We are very proud of the new design and feel that it is best in class.

We will continue to post more information about Web Cube 4.0. If you would like to take a tour of the new product, contact us at info@webcubecms.com
