Scenario

You have recently been appointed as an Adviser to Ruksana Davison, Director of the Organic Toy Company. She is considering moving her business to online. Currently the business operates from a bedroom in her home, however sales have been expanding and she realises that she needs an e-commerce system so that she can expand and grow sales globally. The toys are produced for children with allergies and wherever possible use locally sourced raw materials. Ruksana has been selling at local trade fairs but this is not always cost effective and she realises that sales are more likely to grow if she moves the business online. 

Activity 1 Unit 4.51 E-commerce Applications

Ruskana does not understand anything about the principles and concepts of e-commerce and therefore she has asked you to produce a report which explains:

  • e-commerce principles
  • the relationship between e-commerce principles and e-commerce models
  • the effect of e-commerce applications on different types of organisations

LO1, LO4 assessment criteria, 1.1, 1.2, 4.1

Activity 2

Ruksana is pleased with your report; however she is still very unsure if moving online is really as good as she thinks it is. She has therefore asked you to a meeting to clarify the benefits of e-commerce. You need to be well prepared for the meeting and want to ensure she has documentation which she can consider fully when you have left. Prepare a paper which:

  • examines the opportunities and benefits e-commerce offers a small business such as the Organic Toy Company
  • analyses the threats of adopting e-commerce to her business
  • explains solutions to overcome some of the threats of adopting e-commerce to her business

LO 2 assessment criteria, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3

Activity 3

Ruksana’s concerns have been allayed and she wishes to move to having an online presence. She has retained all of the information you have presented to date in a folder on her computer. She has asked you to add to this folder by providing the following, as this is essential material to inform the next stage in her business development. Produce:

  • an evaluation of e-commerce models that will be appropriate for Ruksana’s business
  • a critical comparison of e-commerce revenue models that can be used by her business
  • an evaluation of e-commerce strategies that can be used by the Organic Toy Company and that have proven successful with other similar businesses
  • a critical evaluation of the different applications that could be used to develop an online presence for the Organic Toy Company.

The learners will need to demonstrate their understanding of e-commerce models used in small businesses. This will be achieved by producing a balanced evaluation of the different models and a critical comparison considering the similarities and differences of the revenue models.

The learners will produce a balanced evaluation of the different e-commerce strategies that can be implemented by the Organic Toy Company examining strengths and weaknesses of the approaches.

As an assessor you will need to provide the learner will feedback on their e-commerce site. You may also ask others in the group to do the same so individual learners get feedback from various sources. The feedback should be structured and cover key areas so tutors may decide to design a feedback form. The learners should review and learn from this feedback. The personal file document should identify the strengths of their work, how they could improve their site, their performance and the design process if they were to attempt this activity again. The learner should also include evidence as to how the e-commerce site can be maintained and supported.
