Our Smart Village platform enables each community site to act as an e-commerce marketplace.
This enables local artisans and retailers to get online and sell their products to a global audience, without all the technology hassles.
Digital Scotland specializes in powerful Cloud computing applications, and how these can enable dynamic new business models especially for small businesses.
Each portal comes packed with numerous features, such as e-commerce store marketplaces that utilize “Social Commerce” – the integration of e-commerce shopping with social media networks and technologies. For example offering loyalty incentives and rewards in exchange for sharing products across your Facebook contacts.
