In the past year Liza has seen the focus of iCat change from creating e-commerce tools for developers to creating a "do-it-yourself" store creation process for merchants. She believes that eventually that focus will change to seeing the shopper as the originator of the income stream. (Where is that money?)
Liza holds ideas about what features need to be a part of the shopper's experience, and how to reach customers. Some of the changes need to be implemented at the development level, and some of the changes must be made by the merchants (who will show them the way?). There are many theories for success, including the whole "portal" idea and the Amazon.com model. What are the essential elements for e-commerce success?
Lastly, Liza especially wants to encourage the participation of more women in the development of e-commerce solutions. She would like to extend an invitation for the meeting participants to consider applying to work directly for iCat, or to sign on as development partners, to whom we can refer merchants who need assistance in creating their Web stores. http://www.icat.com
