E-Commerce Consulting and Implementation Services
What is E-Commerce?
Electronic Commerce is the exchange of business information via an electronic format, such as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), electronic mail (e-mail), electronic bulletin boards, and electronic funds transfer. E-Commerce technologies are designed to replace traditional paper based workflow with faster, more efficient and reliable communications between computers.
The infrastructure for EC is networked computing, which is emerging as the standard computing environment in business, home and government. Networked computing connects several computers and other electronic devices by telecommunication networks. This allows users to access information stored in several places and to communicate and collaborate with others from their desktop computers. The vast majority of people use computers connected to a global networked environment known as the Internet, or its counterpart within organisations, called Intranet.
The lower levels of Electronic Commerce are concerned with a basic network presence, company promotion, and pre- and post-sales support. By using available "off-the-shelf" technologies, these levels can be both cheap and straightforward to implement, as thousands of small companies can already testify. By contrast, the more advanced forms of E-Commerce pose complex problems that are as much legal and cultural as technological. At these levels there are no "of-the-shelf" solutions, so companies are forced to develop their own custom systems. Thus at present it trends to be only the larger and richer companies that are pioneering these levels. However, over time the boundary of what is commonplace will gradually move to encompass the more complex levels of Electronic Commerce and further "off-the-shelf" technologies will be established to support these higher levels, just as they have been for the lower levels.
