P1: describe how the internet operates and give eight examples of how it is used by selected contrasting business organisations
The two companies I would be looking at on how internet is used in each organisation, the first company I would be looking at is Amazon is a US-based multinational electronic commerce company. It is the largest online retailer in the United States, with nearly three times the Internet sales revenue of the runner up. My second organisation I would be looking at on how the internet used is Sir William Perkins's School is a British independent day school for girls aged 11 to 18 in Chertsey, Surrey.
Procurement: (Buying Products)
Amazon has to buy products such as computers for their company also they will have to buy equipment for their business such as electricians, books etc. Amazon would have to find new suppliers over the internet by this it would help them find a cheap and great deal.
Amazon Inc. uses the internet in many various ways. Amazon is just like a store - except that it's online and the "sellers" can be any Amazon user. So it's purpose is to put all these sellers and buyers into one place so they don't have to search for items they want on Google or a specific - they can just go on Amazon, choose the cheapest price for the item they want, and order it. It's definitely got 99.9% of all retail items listed - which include Books, Movies, Music, Games, Computer stuff, Electronics, Toys, Clothing, Jewellery, and a billion other different things. In order Amazon to get a supplier for example to get a publisher to sells books, Amazon would have to use the internet to find their suppliers as they are an online organisation, they would have to research suppliers themselves and also Amazons could also sell their own products they don’t want online.
