The 5 Things You Need to Know:

  1. The eCommerce part you see online is just the tip of the iceberg.
  2. You need to design this with your ideal customer in mind making sure the expereience is great and the site is easy to use.
  3. The investment required to transition to a digital sales channel and sell parts online is not a net new investment but rather a reallocation of resources that you are currently using in the traditional model.
  4. Take a crawl, walk, run approach to transitioning to a digital sales channel and get your customers involved early.
