USWeb/CKS E-Services Launches Business-to-Consumer Offering

USWeb/CKS E-Services, a division of Santa Clara, CA-based interactive agency USWeb/CKS, said its family of e-commerce services will include solutions for business-to-consumer sales and business- to-business sales, including corporate purchasing and supply chain management.

The company said its e-commerce solutions are intended to provide businesses with a fast, cost-effective way to leverage the Internet by making their goods and services available online quickly. The solutions will automate and integrate the steps needed internally and with suppliers to deliver products into customers' hands.

USWeb/CKS E-Services also announced availability of its initial e-commerce direct sales solution based on Microsoft Complete Commerce, a packaged, hosted electronic commerce solution aimed at providing mid-market companies with personalized, transaction-based storefronts without costly infrastructure investments or the need to develop and maintain these systems internally.

The E-Services package of the Microsoft Complete Commerce solution includes Internet strategy consulting, Web development, hosting services, integration with the customer's existing back office systems, and can include end-to-end services through order processing, inventory management and shipping.

"By combining value-added technology with managed services, USWeb/CKS E-Services helps to ensure businesses get exactly the solution they require, from basic management of an application to a complete end-to-end e-commerce solution that integrates with existing back office systems," said Said Bob Wise, COO of USWeb/CKS E-Services. "The Microsoft Commerce platform is an integral part of our strategy. . ."

Pricing for the services will be set on a per-month subscription basis, the company said.
