It only makes sense in today's economic times that the prospect of using the web vs. a brick and mortar store is a much more viable option when you look at the investment and operational costs.

A leading full service technology firm in Orlando, Florida has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of E-Commerce related websites in Q1 2009.
Elliston Consulting, Inc has experienced a 75% increase in the amount of E-Commerce project sales.
President Eric Elliston says, "It only makes sense in today's economic times that the prospect of using the web vs. a brick and mortar store is a much more viable option when you look at the investment and operational costs."
As more and more shoppers are seeking the best deals, many resort to buying even the most basic items on the web.
"Simply look at Amazon's grocery offering," adds Elliston. "It provides the opportunity to really research your day to day purchases. It's economics and convenience in one place."
Elliston Consulting has said that over half of the new E-Commerce projects are migrations from software as a service (SaaS) commerce providers.
"I have talked to numerous clients who feel that their current E-Commerce solution is held hostage by their current providers," Elliston reports. "We wanted to come up with a service where they actually own the technology that operates their store."
While the investment is initially more, the return on investment works out for the vast majority of committed store owners.
Elliston says, "While we have always offered end to end retail solutions, we have had to retool our shop to handle the influx of commerce sites"
It's impossible to determine if this trend will continue but this consulting firm will certainly welcome the business.
