New business from new markets
What is eCommerce? Put simply it is interacting with your customers online
rather than through traditional methods. There are many businesses that
are pure eCommerce stores - Dell, Amazon and Lastminute to name a few.
However, there are far more businesses where the online store is an alternative
outlet to their primary business. These are typically known as a clicks'n'mortar businesses and Regis IT can offer an ecommerce solution that will propel
you ahead of the competition.
Business to Consumer
As a clicks'n'mortar business you can use the web to it's full potential
by selling directly online. Alternatively you can implement a shop window
on the Web to entice customers to your business.
Why just have shop window on the web? 75% of the UK population now have
access to the internet and a large proportion of those use the internet
to research products online, before going to the store to buy their chosen
product or contacting the business for their chosen service.
To implement a full online store, you must have in place the means to
view your products and services, collate requests into an order, collect
payment, track the order and deliver the goods to your customer. You also
need the means to manage your online store: update the catalogue; manage
Business to Business
eCommerce is not just about selling to the public. In the business
to business marketplace, eCommerce has the potential to significantly
reduce costs. With the increasing standardisation of core business documents
such as product catalogues, purchase orders and invoices, much routine
business to business activities can now be done entirely electronically
over the internet. By integrating your stock management system with your
suppliers order management system, you can implement a just-in-time warehousing
policy whereby you maintain just the stock you need, making better use
of your facilities and reducing cost through replacement of manual ordering
processes. Likewise, if your are a supplier, you can reduce your back-office
costs through automated order processing, with your customer orders received
directly into your order managment system.
