Australian Company Creates Innovative e-Commerce Solution

Most product ranges can easily be fitted into a range of shopping carts in the marketplace, but for a duct component supplier, their product range prevented them from joining the 21st century, causing them to remain reliant on phone and fax ordering, as no neat online solution was available to cater for the complexity of their product range. That is until recently when they launched their own custom designed shopping cart at National Manufacturing Week to make ordering duct online a breeze. Anybody who works with ducting parts will let you know, it's surprisingly hard to set up an online shopping cart to sell duct parts, because there is an extraordinary array of component specifications, then on top of that each and every one has its own unique cost. Basic dimension variables consist of specific angles, diameters and also lengths and all these variables mean that regular on-line shopping carts typically aren't able to handle the total number of variables, without resorting to entering the same product again and again, with the only variant being the dimension, which renders the use of the online store into something which is particularly complicated and unwieldy for a potential customer having a look at the product line.

The Era of the Global Village

What is the global village? It's interesting to watch this clip exploring this idea in this interview with the man who first coined the term 'global village' back in the sixties, Marshall McLuhan. It explores the effects of various media on the way we relate to our lives, each other and our place in the world. McLuhan chose the insightful phrase "global village" to highlight his observation that an electronic nervous system (the media) was rapidly integrating the planet -- events in one part of the world could be experienced from other parts in real-time, which is what human experience was like when we lived in small villages. Marshall McLuhan's insights made the concept of a global village, interconnected by an electronic nervous system, part of our popular culture well before it actually happened.
