PwC B2B e-comm product a real value-add: PwC

Almost all participating member companies will make immediate savings of between 10 and 20 per cent on spending, with further savings of up to 10 per cent on "rogue" spending and up to 5 per cent from PwC's "best practices" library, which is available for e.conomy members, Peake said.

Overall, Peake believes 90 per cent of businesses that conduct their e-business via e.conomy will make annual savings of between 17 and 35 per cent.

E.conomy had its Asia-Pacific launch today, but the concept has already been around since September 1999 in the US, Peake said. Since its US launch, e.conomy has attracted around 350 US providers to join its books.

Peake said e.conomy would draw revenues only through member spending. The portal charges no sign-up or monthly access fees and members need only be equipped with basic web browser software, he said. He expects members will conduct around 30 per cent of their spending through e.conomy, of which PwC will then pocket between 1 and 5 per cent. Peake would not give revenue projections.

In Australia, e.conomy has already signed up a handful of providers, including hotel chains and airline companies - what Peake described as the high-spend departments of the corporate world. The portal soon plans to offer access to basic services, such as telecommunications and electricity.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
