THINK IT’s new online store may not be designed to take on the world, but it is proving useful.
The site was launched two weeks ago and managing director Andrew Corner says initial uptake has been good.
“It is there for customers and is not meant to take over the world,” he says, adding at this stage only customers with existing accounts can use the store.
The company set up the store to increase its web presence and to make it easier for customers to order low-cost and consumable items.
“It is an ordering portal for customers where they can buy products quicker,” says Corner.
“Instead of going to a retail store and paying cash, they can order on account from us. It’s about making it easier for customers.”
The site has even enabled Think IT to offer clients products it does not usually stock, such as joysticks and gamepads.
“We have just made all kinds of product available to see what happens,” says Corner.
However, the company has no plans to become a complete online business.
“Our focus is on providing network engineering and consulting services. Box dropping does not suit our model,” he says.
