E-business guide released

The Federal government has launched e-businessguide, a tool it claims will provide small businesses with practical information on how to maximise the benefits provided by e-business.

Federal Minister for Communications and IT, Senator Alston, said the e-businessguide was funded by the Government to provide straightforward information and guidance on e-business for small businesses operating across Australia.

“Effective use of the Internet can enable businesses to reach more customers, help them to be more efficient and provide new avenues to conduct their business,” he said.

A spokesperson for the department said the guide helped small businesses gain access to information on the benefits of e-business or build on strategies already in place.
