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.
