New Customers and Strong Revenue Growth

Port City Web has experienced a substantial increase in the number of businesses seeking to maintain or grow revenue through the use of online commerce, also referred to as eCommerce. "As businesses look for new ways to maintain or increase revenue, while attracting new customers, many are re-focusing on eCommerce -- either fixing what they have or starting from scratch," said Erik Crago, President & CEO of Port City Web. "Businesses are much more serious about presenting a functional online shopping cart solution to their customers so that they [the business] can maintain or increase revenue through their website," noted Crago. As a result, Port City Web has signed 12 new eCommerce projects within the first 4 months of 2008. "This increased demand in eCommerce has lead to one of the best 4-month periods of web services in the company's history," said Crago. In addition to the increase in eCommerce design and development, Port City Web is also seeing an increased demand for non-eCommerce website design and development among new and existing customers.
