Quality the benchmark

Quality is the new USP. Might seem ironic as the glories have been long sung by the ardent supporters of TQM. Yet, in spite of all the hoopla, quality is an underrated proposition. Consumer segmentation would become redundant if consumers see a value proposition. Yes, I am saying price would become irrelevant. Quality in its various forms is what customers are looking for. From quality personal care products to quality business cards.
  The top-line is defined by the quality of the products and services offered by the business. But the practices of TQM, 6 sigma etc should not be adopted to the organization without fully understanding first the organizational structure and strategy.

E-commerce web hosting

The web hosting news I'd like to talk about in this blog is E-commerce hosting. Well its not exactly news in its truest sense unless i assume this blog is the sole source of information about the technology world for you, the reader. That of course would be too preposterous an assumption to make on my part!
So e-commerce web hosting services are web hosting services designed to meet the requirements of an online store. It has features such as shopping cart which bring the user closer to a physical store experience. Navigation also becomes easier with the use of this type of web host as opposed to using a normal web hosting service.
Of course its imperative for every business to make itself available on the Internet irrespective of product or service. This is particularly true in the case of saturated, for example USA and Europe, and fast developing markets as in India, China and Brazil. The Internet penetration in these economies is very high and is rapidly increasing in the case of the fast growing economies of Asia.
Plenty of options are available on the web for your business web site hosting needs. Don't make the mistake of treating your business website like a personal website. The need and navigation requirements of the two are vastly different and so they require different web hosting services as well!
