Cleveland, OH- July 8, 2008 -
CardinalCommerce Corporation, a leading provider of payment methods for eCommerce and mCommerce merchants, announced today the launch of the new mobile commerce site, m.pcRUSH.com. Online electronics retailer pcRUSH.com, identified as one of the top ranking web merchants in the 2008 Internet Retailer Top 500, partnered with CardinalCommerce to offer customers an innovative buying experience by enabling mobile based transactions.
pcRUSH Mobile provides consumers with search tools, intuitive navigation and secure checkout at anytime, from anywhere, using a standard mobile device. On-demand purchasing uncoupled from a conventional CPU, workstation or laptop provides customers with an enhanced level of immediacy, flexibility and convenience lacking in standard web based commerce business models.

"Our competitive advantage lies in our ability to leverage technical innovation as a means of increasing productivity, lowering costs and meeting or exceeding customer demand for the easiest to use and most reliable electronic shopping technology on the planet."
CardinalCommerce's mobile platform, Cardinal MAX™, dramatically accelerated time-to-market launch of the new pcRUSH mobile solution. The underlying technology driving the new pcRUSH.com mobile initiative incorporates the exchange of database feeds to ensure accurate price and availability on more than 50,000 unique products. Once the datasets are loaded into the CardinalCommerce MAX platform, an up-to-date mobile catalogue is immediately available to customers world-wide. Each product is dynamically rendered to ensure data integrity. The MAX platform enables PayPal™ Mobile Checkout, Google™ Checkout for Mobile, standard credit card payment, and bolsters consumer confidence with secure encryption of sensitive financial and personal data.
"We are pleased to expand our relationship with pcRUSH.com into the mobile channel. They are a top retailer in the consumer electronics vertical and we are excited to bring their mobile site to the marketplace", said Tim Sherwin, Executive Vice President, CardinalCommerce.
