Who Said Bespoke Ecommerce Websites Were A Bad Thing?

The value of bespoke ecommerce websites Effective software systems, systems that add a genuine material benefit to organisations are all about choice and flexibility. The ability to harmonise existing processes with new improved software functionality and return improved results. It's not about having to crowbar the way that your business already works into the shape of the new software. If you are looking at ecommerce as a way of building your business online then be sure to pay very close attention to the benefits of bespoke ecommerce websites. Feel the bespoke ecommerce fear and do it anyway Does the term bespoke ecommerce strike fear in your heart? Maybe you've had a bad experience in the past (many people have) with 'bespoke' systems. Handbuilt software, crafted from the ground up that invariably steamrollered delivery dates, bludgeoned budgets and at the same time usually failing to deliver anything like the kind of benefits promised. Whisper the word “bespoke” to many a business owner and they will go weak at the knees and break out in a cold sweat. Don't worry though – things have moved on. Bespoke ecommerce services built on a solid platform Certainly in the case of bespoke ecommerce systems rarely these days are we talking about systems developed from scratch. Sure, if you want a system spun from virgin code there is bound to be plenty of options out there. The thing is you simply don't need to go that far back in bespoke  ecommerce solution theory to have the chance of a system that do exactly what you need it to do, that meets your needs precisely. Now days when we talk about bespoke ecommerce solutions and bespoke ecommerce websites we're talking about the refinements to be made to a solid and stable ecommerce platform. Often it's little more than a case of flicking switches to enable or disable specific functionality such as flexible pricing promotions, special offer testing, fraud prevention, customer loyalty schemes, eBay integration, automatic emailing and the like. Bespoke ecommerce services bolted on to powerful standard ecommerce offerings such as accounts integration, CMS, reporting systems and the like. So if you're looking to stake your claim in the great ecommerce gold rush, to enjoy a world wide customer base, 24/7, 365 days of the year then take confidence in the fact that bespoke ecommerce websites, far from being something to fear, can actually be your greatest asset, allowing you to carry out exactly the kind of business you want to in exactly the way you want to do it. © dotCommerce – ecommerce websites at http://www.dotcommerce.co.uk Continue Reading
