"For those of us that thought the dot-commers were living on another
planet, here is a terrific book that maps the terrain of how the 'Net can
be put work for a manufacturing company. Shari and Walt cover a lot of territory
in describing how the 'Net can enhance, extend, and improve business operations.
If there is one book you should read to get the lay of the land, this is it."
- Jim Geisman,
President, Marketshare Inc. (and one of the original members of the ARPAnet
design team, the Internet's predecessor)
"e-Business in Manufacturing is the latest - and perhaps the best -
book to focus on the special problem manufacturing companies face in attempting
to make the Internet a viable business tool. What distinguishes this book
from others is the authors' willingness to go beyond the surface details and
fluffy generalizations found in the majority of business writing today. Can
the information in the book help end the confusion between your IS and marketing
managers? Yes. Can this book help you explain to your operating managers how
the Internet can help grow the business? Yes again. Can this book help increase
your probability of achieving a positive ROI on your Internet investment?
- Prentis Hall,
President, Industrial Marketing Practice Association
"This book should be on the shelf of any manufacturer contemplating
an enterprise integration project. It contains valuable insights on how to
manage all levels of the customer supplier relationship, including how local
sales representatives will be challenged to meet the expectations of the customer
of the near future."
