The customer must have an easy to use interface and must be able to find his way through without much hassle. Ease of use and swift navigation around the different pages of the website are important as customers are not willing anymore to spend time waiting for WebPages to load as Mr. Sinclair, the General Manager at Microsoft.com puts it "People aren't forgiving of saying the web doesn't have to meet the criteria of the desktop: they used to be patient about slow pages, long forms and redrawing a whole page when u click a link.

[Aoron Ricadela] With Internet technology growing at a fast pace, it is imperative for ecommerce companies to match the pace and have the latest hardware and software solutions in place to match it.

Both these companies leveraged the internet in an effective manner by implementing changes in both server hardware and in software by redesigning the web pages and content in such a manner to offer real time, interactive product-based services in a swift, safe and secure manner. Ease of use, scalability, security and interactive and effective information exchange are the keys to success in the world of ecommerce.
