Tesco is a well-known e-commerce site in the UK. It has a large supermarket equivalent, so people can be sure who they're buying things from. Aims: Tesco have many aims within the firm to achieve its long-term plans from which company objectives are derived. It determines the way in which the organisation will develop, provides a common purpose for everyone to identify with and work towards and finally provides a collective view, builds team spirit and encourages commitment.

Ease of Use Tesco.co.uk is an easy to navigate through site, with its toolbar at the top, with entries to "Home, Shopping, News and Features, Talking Tesco, Register and Sign-In, Help".
