Adding Value with Electronic Commerce
Electronic commerce can also be an invaluable aid in helping a company increase perceived "value". Market share and value rise together. For products that help establish a platform or a standard, electronic commerce's effect is even more pronounced. Electronic commerce also adds value through the production and capture of managerial decision support information. Therefore, the term electronic commerce also applies to whenever computer networks are used to search and retrieve information in support of human and corporate decision-making.
Product awareness is no longer the challenge it once was in the New Economy's networked communication. With the growth opportunity afforded businesses in the New Economy, first-mover advantages are greater than ever. Enabled by electronic commerce, once a company reaches critical mass, it can experience increasing returns leading to explosive growth. The Internet already connects more then twenty million users in over 130 countries. At current growth rates it will link fifty millions users by 2005.
