Course Overview

Managing Ecommerce Goods from Source to Customer

Course Objectives

Many businesses want to join the ecommerce revolution due to the greater outreach potential, elimination of geographical limitations and the convenience and accessibility of purchases for customers. Most training providers out in the market, however, focus only on teaching aspiring businesses how to set up online presences and conduct digital marketing; often missing out on how to optimise business operations and logistics to support the growth of their online businesses.

This course will impart strategies and techniques to plan, operationalise and review order fulfilment activities that directly support the success of ecommerce businesses.
