Is an ecommerce website the right move to improve your efficiency? Find out at a free Lunch & Learn September 20, 2016 at Innovation Depot in Birmingham, AL

It’s September, and this Labor Day we’re thinking about ways to make our own workplace a happier and more efficient place to be for our staff. The good news? A well-built website can help with that, and we’re sharing the secrets to our success. Our September Lunch & Learn, Custom Programming and You: Add Ecommerce, Intranet, Organization and More, will help identify workplace efficiency mistakes and client missteps and — even better — show how to avoid them. Here’s what’s included:

How custom programming can make you money

Adding ecommerce to your website can increase retail sales and make profits higher without increasing labor costs by much; we’ll help you evaluate whether or not ecommerce is best for your website.

Ways custom programming can increase efficiency and cut labor costs

Adding an intranet or adding organizational or onboarding features to your website can help decrease labor costs by increasing efficiency. We’ll present ways your website could up efficiency for your business.

Why you may want a company intranet

You can keep information at-hand for all employees and even streamline some HR tasks by creating a company intranet. We’ll help determine whether or not an intranet will work for your company, and we’ll share tips we learned from creating the Infomedia intranet.

What you’ll need to start an ecommerce website

If you decide you want to set up an ecommerce website, you’ll need to gather and list your inventory as well as decide on payment methods. We’ll share the pros and cons of ecommerce payments, and we’ll share standards for listing your inventory in an ecommerce store.

Free lunch from Taziki’s & Birmingham network opportunities galore

The free lunch we cater from Taziki’s is a big part of what makes Lunch & Learns a success — because it’s easier to justify spending your lunch break on professional enrichment if you know you’ll be able to actually enjoy a meal while you learn. And if you’re looking for a place to network in Birmingham, you’ve found it — most of our Lunch & Learn students work at up-and-coming businesses in the Birmingham area, and there’s plenty of time to mingle and chat before and after class.

Seats and lunch are limited, so click here to sign in and claim your free Infomedia Lunch & Learn ticket. (And if you can’t make it this month, check out our 2016 Lunch & Learn schedule.) Because if anyone tells you “there’s no such thing as a free lunch,” you’ll know they haven’t met us here at Infomedia.
