Retailers urged to save online Small retailers could save thousands of pounds each year by transferring more business functions online, according to a new report commissioned by Netscalibur, which provides web based services to companies across Europe.

Netscalibur md Simon Harrison said opportunities included simple things like outsourcing e-mail as well as more sophisticated applications such as online Customer Relationship Management and web based procurement of goods and services. {{NEWS }}
