Toronto-based Ironside Technologies, a supplier of
business-to-business electronic commerce solutions, launched a new Web site
designed to help customers with Ironside Powered systems install, implement,
and roll out their new offerings.
The new “Open for E-Business” site offers step-by-step guidelines for both
technical implementation and customer rollout, covering topics ranging from
establishing an implementation team, performing a requirements analysis, and
testing the system to defining rollout customers, offering customer
incentives and analyzing the success of the effort.
The site lists options and recommends strategies, such as beginning an
implementation with a control group rather than conducting a simultaneous
rollout with all customers.
The technical implementation segment includes a project management template,
sample network architecture diagrams, a white paper on Internet security, a
list of required hardware and software components, and sample main menu
“Our Open for E-Business site is a working document our customers can use to
help structure their implementation and customer rollout. This will maximize
the return on their e-commerce investment,” said Derek Smyth, vice president
of marketing and business development at Ironside.
Ironside develops and sells Ironside Powered business-to-business electronic
commerce solutions allowing distributors and manufacturers to conduct business
over the Internet in real time. Users can place orders and make inquiries
online with full access to current pricing and inventory information.
