In the new millennium, SMEs are being increasingly challenged to take up the gauntlet of competition in the international arena. In this scenario, the best defence lies not only in efficient production but also in access to superior information and skills, as well as the ability to communicate and present an effective image for the firm. In all these aspects and many others, information technology provides a practical solution.
