eBay Awarded for Advancing Global Entrepreneurship

In a medal ceremony at the White House, eBay was awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation for Advancing Global Entrepreneurship by the President, George W. Bush. This is the first time that this award has even been granted to an Internet company as was reported by MarketWatch. One of the reasons for this honor was in recognition of eBay and PayPal's approximately 70 patents, both within the U.S. and globally. As President and CEO of eBay Inc. John Donahoe acknowledged:

"Our technology is at the core of our success. EBay and PayPal together have harnessed technology in the service of people; the result is that millions have transformed their lives for the better -- building businesses, taking care of their families and becoming global entrepreneurs at the same time. That's what true innovation is all about."

For businesses that operate not only web stores, but brick and mortar retail outlets, it's important to be sure that stock can be controlled centrally, and that orders taken through stores can be managed by the same system as used in the website. That means that it's simple to see what needs to be done, what orders must be filled, and to manage schedules, deliveries, and other tasks. Web shop providers are available that can give you control over multiple outlets at once. For smaller businesses, however, this feature would be unnecessary. Learn more with List Easy
