There is still time for SMEs to take part in worthwile study

Until the 30th of June there is still time for small and medium-sized trade companies to take part in the “Internet and trade 2006” study organized by the e-commerce center for trade (ECC Handel).
By this study the ECC analyses the use of the Internet particularly in small and medium-sized entities (SMEs). The study is supported by the Federal Ministry of Commerce and Technology, the principal associations of German commerce, several Chambers of Industry and Trade as well as by the Network of Electronic Business. All trade companies are entitled to take part in the study. During the first weeks since the start of the study more than 1.200 companies had already taken part in the survey.

The questionnaire was conceived such that it can be filled in within a few minutes. It is available online and can be completed directly on the screen. Participation is worthwhile! All participants will receive a short region-specific interpretation of the survey´s results. All the results will be published in a report which will probably be available in October 2006. GERMAN
