EBAY purchased the technology assets of Kurant Corp. Here's eBay's description of what it acquired:
Kurant Corporation provides software that enables small businesses to conduct business online through dynamic, interactive Web sites. StoreSense™, its flagship product, is a comprehensive e-commerce platform that allows companies to easily add commerce to an existing Web site or create a sophisticated Web Store including: inventory management, supplier communication and integration with QuickBooks™. StoreSense™ is delivered to small businesses through Kurant's global resellers that include financial service organizations, Web hosting companies and trusted small business partners.
