Analytical Review 

Report - The suggested word count is 3,200 words.

Analytical review: this assignment requires students to produce an in-depth analysis of an e business and e marketing challenge based on one of three significant themes detailed in their assignment brief. 

Choose one of the following questions:

1.        ‘Effective E-business’ use ICT effectively to change processes.’ 

For example, with the of electronic point of sale systems, Tesco was able to automate its checkouts and stock control systems making the processes faster and much more efficient. Conversely, in 1995, Jeff Bezos founded Amazon because he saw the potential for a new business opportunity as a result of technological innovation, which allowed him to offer to customers the opportunity to purchase books, music and a wide variety of other products at competitive prices delivered to the door.

 Select 2 companies (agreed with tutor) and critically evaluate the extent to which ICT has been used effectively to change processes and increase business effectiveness. 

2.       A good e-marketing strategy is the most important aspect for the success of any kind of internet-based business.’ 

 For example, a business like Amazon makes it easy for people to buy online as it has a huge range of books, music, films and electronic goods as well as household and domestic products. Leading manufacturers choose to sell their products through Amazon because they know that this is a good way to reach a wide, international audience and generate revenue. Amazon is continually seeking to outperform its competitors and increase its market share. It does this by providing customers with choice, value, credibility and excellent customer service. Similarly, other organisations such as Tesco and John Lewis are offering their customers the option to shop on-line in response to consumer demand.

 Select 2 companies (agreed with tutor) and critically evaluate the extent to which these companies utilise an effective eMarketing strategy.

3.       The key objectives of Customer Relationship Management are to increase customer loyalty, improve profitability and to generate excellent word of mouth recommendation.

Service delivery, support and CRM are aimed at improving all aspects of the customer experience.” For example, in the case of Amazon, Jeff Bezos has always regarded positive customer experience to be a vital ingredient for the Company’s success. Explain in detail how Amazon and other highly successful e businesses use customer service and support to enhance relationships with customers and make suggestions as to how you would advise the senior management team of e businesses to further improve the way that their organisations are perceived by customers. You are expected to demonstrate wider reading around the theory of e-Customer Relationship Management.
Compare, contrast, and analyse approaches used to evaluate a company’s current positioning in the traditional and electronic marketplaces.
