Bespoke eCommerce Solutions



XMLi5 Ltd. is a Software House based in Leeds, West Yorkshire (UK) specialising in the development of integrated eCommerce and Web Solutions using the Microsoft .NET Framework and the IBM i.

Our powerful ASP.NET eCommerce product provides users with a full compliment of Internet applications integrated with the IBM i (AS/400, iSeries) and interfaced to systems such as GEAC System/21.

Development Through Innovation

IBM i Integration

The XMLi5 ecommerce product was purpose-built to integrate with IBM i, primarily targeting SMBEs in the IBM Midrange computing sector.


Given the leaps forward in mobile internet access and increasingly powerful mobile phone technology, the web now needs to be responsive.

PCI Compliancy

Our solutions can help you climb the PCI Compliance ladder as sensitive credit card details are not stored on your IBM i (or the web server).

Our Products & Services

Enterprise E-Commerce Package

The XMLi5 E-Commerce Package provides a mature, fully integrated and mobile-friendly online storefront. It supports multiple product catalogues, allowing the sale of differing product lines or brands.

Stock and price information is retrieved from a database on your server or from an IBM i (running, say, GEAC System/21) in real-time or batch mode. Orders can then be returned to the IBM i and split across multiple dispatch warehouses if necessary.

PCI compliance is straightforward, as we will set up your TLS certificate and we use web-based credit card payment interfaces such as SagePay, PayPal and Global-Iris.

Enterprise Distributor Package

If you need to sell online to trade distributors or retail outlets, the XMLi5 Distributor Package should amply meet your requirements.

The Distributor Package is a fully fledged business-to-business online store, with the capacity for complex business rules and trade-pricing built in.

Churchill China Plc have been using the XMLi5 Distributor Package for over 10 years to sell to their middle marketplace (small high street retailers) and in that time the application has paid for itself many times over.

The functionality and feature set is extensive, so please contact us for further details.

Dropship Vendor Interface

When Morphy Richards needed to develop a Dropship Vendor Interface to ASDA Direct, they called upon our expertise here at XMLi5.

We developed software to extract product price information and stock availability from their GEAC System/21 back-office system running on their IBM iSeries, transforming it to XML and sending it to ASDA Direct's application.

Orders placed are returned as XML to Morphy Richards, where they are interfaced into System/21 for dispatch. The entire system is fully automated and has operated without incident since first going live.

Digital Asset Distribution

XMLi5's software includes modules to construct a powerful media distribution/archival application, enabling businesses to collate and share all of their digital assets with a centralised web application.

Glen Dimplex Home Appliances called upon XMLi5 to deploy UK and International image libraries for their marketing teams. Where once requests for images from their distributors and resellers had to be done manually, they can now be automated and fulfilled using the Assets package.

Users can browse all (or a governable subset) of their company media assets, add selections to a basket, and then download them in bulk as a single ZIP file.

Local Business Package

Our Local Business Package is a new package from XMLi5, offering local businesses a high quality, content-managed and responsive/mobile-friendly promotional website.

We also offer full hosting, on a server that meets your scaling needs, as well as content management as a service. If you want to just get on with running your business, you can even leave the content management to us!

We will meet with you to discuss your requirements, analyse your opportunities and competitors, and design a custom theme for your new site. We offer all of this for an extremely competitive monthly rate, and with no upfront development cost.

Bespoke Development

Our product packages are broad in their scope of application, but if you already know that you'll be needing a completely bespoke web application, please do not hesitate to contact us so we can discuss your requirements and what we could build to address them.

We enjoy any technical challenge, and we are highly skilled in the following technologies:

ASP.NET, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, VB.NET, RPG, CL, XML, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM i and DB2/400.

We have over 30 years experience working with IBM i (AS/400, iSeries) and over 16 years experience in building websites and e-commerce web applications.

Responsive, Recoverable, Reliable

The internet continues to grow and with growth comes change. Today your web applications must be accessible on a wide range of devices, including mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. With XMLi5 you can rest assured that there will be one (AND ONLY ONE) solution for all.



Each XMLi5 web application is delivered with an SEO-friendly document structure, URL-routing and search engine readable microdata. Friendly URLs are used throughout.


Our web applications ship with Google Analytics built-in, so you can best track your visitor behaviour patterns and e-commerce conversions from day one.
