Could a Website be part of Webcentric?
Yes it can!
We talked about how the Webcentric Model is built around a "Virtual" solution. It's a fact, your business needs a web site. Ever try and get information about...
- The stylist who cuts your hair?
- The little wine store down the street?
- The antique store in that little town you plan to visit?
- The printer your friend told you had a good price on business cards?
Let's face it, the days of the Yellow Pages have passed! A website is a given, email is a given. And if you want to be taken seriously, your own domain name is a given!
Once we have created a path for your business, the next step is evaluating the profitability or return on investment for using Internet based tools be they out of the box of custom.
There is also the consideration of how this will interact with your current infrastructure. If the technology solution is redundant, we'll need to erase the old system as we implement the new one!
There are some things you don't want to let technology do for you. Answer the phone for example... Ever call a company and you have to push #1 for English? Then Push 1,2,3,4,8 for the area you're calling about? Then 10 minutes later you get to talk to a person?
First question... Do you like going through all that?
Second question... Do you have that in your company?
