This consortium conducts multidisciplinary research (fundamental and applied) on E-commerce use (Internet/Intranet/Extranet) technologies and complementary re-engineered business processes and organizational strategies to enhance the competitiveness and effectiveness of companies (particularly in the manufacturing, retailing and associated industry sectors) and government agencies. It promotes university-industry collaborative endeavors leading to education, research and technology transfer of new E-commerce paradigms for business-to-customer, intra-business and business-to-business interactions. Sponsors have access to faculty expertise, applied projects, workshops, seminars, symposia, educational materials and a web-based discussion forum that assists companies in their planning, justification and implementation of E-commerce as a core business strategy. The consortium acts as a learning community for organizations to share E-commerce implementation experiences, lessons learned, best practices and performance metrics for mutual benchmarking.
