Abstract

Whilst there has been work on e-commerce development, much of the work has been about large organisations and much has been USA-based. This research focuses on SMEs in the UK, and it considers how much of the existing published literature is applicable in this context. A prototyping approach is being developed to create a framework that will be based on benchmarks and that may be used by SMEs to assist in the creation of successful e-commerce web sites.
