eBusiness is not just about eCommerce or exchanging information about goods and services between you
and your customers and your and your suppliers. It is about using the Internet
for the transfer of information between employees using your in-house systems, between branch offices,
between remote users, and between business partners, customers, suppliers and the public.
eBusiness is also about automation. You can automate many of your
in-house procedures using new sources of information. You are freed up so you
can use information and technology to let you work AT your business rather that
IN your business.
Here is a simplified example an AUTOMATED
eBusiness system we can provide at competitive rates:
A customer wants to order 1000 widgets.
They visit CustomShop - logging on automatically. CustomShop checks to see
whether your customer has any outstanding orders and their credit worthiness.
The customer places their order -
CustomShop checks to see whether there is enough stock. If not, a purchase order
is sent to your supplier (according to the "rules" for widgets). Your
Purchase Order information and the Sales Order information is entered into your
existing accounting system (assuming your system is able to import transactions
- most do).
Your customer can check the status of
their order 24/7.
There are a huge number of variations
to the above scenario - for example:
"Most Likely to Buy" Calls and E-Mail Offers - by combining
historic sale information with CRM
functions you can create specific offers rather than shooting blind
Customer Inventories - By combining sales history,
optimum re-order quantities per customer and daily demand
We can deliver 100% solutions to 95 %
of businesses - so call or e-mail us with your requirements - if we can't deliver,
