Since exploding onto the Internet scene in the mid-90's, electronic commerce has become an integral part of many organizations' e-business strategies. As defined by our customers and partners, we've broken down e-commerce into five separate "categories":
Traditional product storefronts:
These catalog-based online stores, such as Amazon.com, are the most typical and high-profile example of e-commerce.
E-commerce storefronts focused solely on selling corporate merchandise, such as logo-carrying uniforms, shirts, mugs, hats, pens, etc.
A customer visits a Web site and purchases a software product using the standard shopping cart and check out process, and at the end of the process can immediately download the software to their computer.
Access to value-added content:
Similar to downloadable software, this scenario performs a financial transaction and then immediately allows authenticated access (typically via login/password) to content you've created.
Online bill presentment:
A customer receives an email from the organization (i.e., a cellular provider) alerting them to new online billing information, clicks a link, enters their password information, and is presented with their most recent bill, which they have the option of paying automatically.
Mind Map Media's Solution:
