M-commerce, The Next Retail Revolution

Smartphones are spearheading the next revolution

I am exploring a Blue Ocean Strategy in a business concept that is a state of the art business that is using the latest technology available to build a new shopping experience for both consumers and retailers. It is giving retailers the opportunity to fight back against the “big boys” (big supermarkets) and to bring their business into the online world. The pioneering core of the business model is the linking of local retail and online commerce – now this model is expanded by a functional M-commerce model. This functionality not only enables a world-wide shopping experience but has an affordable franchise model to start you own business. Click here to view a one minute video giving an executive summary thereof. If you are interested to be kept informed of developments, click here please.
