Sausage Software has formed alliances with Telstra and St George Bank to market and distribute its e-commerce product.
Sausage says its Business in a Box is an application for SMEs to build and operate online.
Pacific Access, Telstra's Yellow Pages arm, is among the first Telstra partner to sell and distribute the product. Telstra owns a 10 per cent stake in Sausage.
Additionally, St George Bank will market the product to its business banking customer base and also through its alliances, Sausage officials said.
Sausage is hoping the partnerships will help it penetrate the roughly 400,000 SMEs in Australia that have Internet access.
