Why you need a personal Touch?

The evolution of Internet has accessed a truly global reach to customers in almost any field. The downside of this era is that people have lower attention spans. To get a chance of selling and to improve the efficiency of marketing you have to get attention and inspire people to action.

One of the best ways to do this is through personalization.

Give your customers a great, personal experience, include their name in emails you sent them or show specific promotions only to certain consumers when they visit a website.

eCommerce Solutions for Different Industries

Business-to-business

B2B e-commerce is simply defined as e-commerce between companies. While B2C ecommerce gets the most media attention, B2B ecommerce is the bigger revenue generator. B2B websites become more like B2C. Online B2B sellers now understand that the customer experience in a B2B environment is just as important as for B2C.

Globally, by 2020 the B2B ecommerce market will be twice as large as the B2C market — $6.7 trillion vs. $3.2 trillion — according to research provider Frost & Sullivan.

One-to-many. In a direct model, companies have their own B2B online store, where customers can purchase goods.

Many-to-many. This Model involves companies joining an extensive online B2B marketplace. This can be a private market in which companies choose to form a closed network, or a public marketplace, which is open to all suppliers in a particular market.

Business-to-consumer

Business-to-consumer e-commerce, or commerce between companies and consumers. It involves information, physical goods, digital goods etc.

  • B2C e-commerce reduces transactions costs (particularly search costs) by increasing consumer access to information and allowing consumers to find the most competitive price for a product or service.
  • B2C e-commerce also reduces market entry barriers since the cost of putting up and maintaining a Web site is much cheaper than installing a “brick-and-mortar” structure for a firm.

Business-to-government

Business-to-government is generally defined as commerce between companies and the public sector.

It refers to the use of the Internet for public procurement, licensing procedures, and other government-related operations.

Consumer-to-consumer

Consumer-to-consumer or C2C is the oldest form of e-commerce, for example websites offering free classified advertisements, auctions, forums, and individual pages for start-up entrepreneurs.

C2C is simply commerce between private individuals or consumers. This Model involves individuals joining an extensive online C2C marketplace. This can be a private market in which participants choose to form a closed network, or a public marketplace, which is open to all members.

Mobile commerce

M-commerce (mobile commerce) is essentially shopping from mobile devices – the buying and selling of goods and services through wireless technology-i.e. handheld devices such as cellular telephones and personal digital assistants (PDAs).

Brick-and-mortar retailers should focus even more on online strategies. Consumer mindshare continues to be split across multiple devices. Marketers need to use both desktop and mobile marketing effectively to maximize their sales. Cross-device marketing is real and drives significant value for advertisers.

Mobile share has grown to 40% of eCommerce transactions globally and soon enough, if not already, will exceed Desktop sales.

Ruby On Rails

Ruby on rails deserves their own section because it is the basement of most of our advanced web applications.

Why Ruby on Rails (a.k.a. RoR)?

  • With RoR we can develop complex, safe, flexible, scalable and functional web applications much quicker
  • RoR was built to increase programming efficiency and quality
  • RoR is fully compatible with other programming languages like Java, C etc.
  • RoR is not attached to one database, the database logic is separate from the application so the solutions can be migrated with ease, and with as little downtime as possible.
  • RoR has a predefined structure – every bit of code has its own place. It simplifies bug detection and correction, and you can quickly get new developers up to speed.
  • RoR is and ever developing cutting edge platform. PHP platforms like Cake PHP are always one step behind.
  • RoR is an open-source software, it is free, does not require expensive server systems and the maintenance is relatively inexpensive.
  • RoR is fully compatible with Agile Development – it allows flexible development, the application can be adopted to ever changing requirements. No more long-term development plans that smashes after the first contact with the customer.

Ruby on Rails has been the platform of choice of many world famous companies like Twitter (in the beginning), Shopify, Crunchbase, Groupon, AirBnB, SoundCloud, Hulu, SlideShare and others. It is the primary choice of most new tech companies in Silicon Alley USA.
