Agenda • eCommerce portals – different types • A quantum jump in technology? • Pre-Requisites • The ground work • Technical knowledge • Business Benefits • What do we have to offer?
The different types Broadly four types B2C B2B Online Bidding sites App Stores Market Places (Amazon, Alibaba, eBay, etc.)Even under theB2C sites there Multi Brand Stores (Flipkart, HomeShop18, Yebhi, etc.)are furtherclassifications Single Brand Stores (normally selling merchandize of a brick & mortar retailer)
Is this a quantum jump in Technology? Actually it is not Just another store Application vendors have integrated eCommerce offerings
Are there any Application Pre-Requisites? Should a retailer already have an ERP Solution? Should a retailer also have an integrated Retail Solution? Can an eCommerce offering work stand alone? As a Retailer can I stagger my investments?
Is there any ground work required? Will there be additional Business Processes? Will this require investments in Human Resources? Will there be a technological upheaval?
Technical Knowledge Required? Get the right domain name Focus on the usability & aesthetics Don’t bother what’s under the hood
