Whatís a commodity market? Itís one where competition is based solely on price, in which the end-user doesnít care about where the product came from because there is little to distinguish one from another; if youíre buying soybeans by the ton or spools of copper wiring, it doesnít really matter who your supplier is, assuming the product meets an acceptable standard of quality.
If youíre part of a website development company, youíve probably been through this experience at least once: while putting the finishing touches on a clientís website you get a call from the client saying that the site looks broken. You ask a few questions and realize theyíre using a browser thatís a decade old.
People use antiquated browsers for many reasons, but in many cases theyíre either comfortable with their browser of choice and donít want to change, or they simply donít know that a newer version is available.
There is no getting around it: the Web is now social. A majority of internet users want to be able to comment on articles that they read. People want the ability to share their pictures or communicate with their friends. When the average person sits down in front of a computer, he or she is looking to connect.
At Accrisoft, we regularly receive requests for social applications. We hear things like, "I want a Facebook application that allows my clients to discuss our new products," or "I want a simple way for my visitors to get to know one another." We are always glad to help, but we make sure that our clients understand one thing: the best social applications in the world mean nothing if there is no one around to use them.
