Preparing your online business for Black Friday

In this edition of Business Day Spotlight, our focus is around online retailers, the physical networks that need to be in place to fulfil orders and the work being done behind the scenes by web-hosting companies to keep websites running.
Our host Mudiwa Gavaza, is joined in studio by Sunday Times Business Times retail writer Ntando Thukwana to tackle the topic with the experts.
In the first part of the discussion, Ashley Arendse, human resources manager for Picup, a technology business offering crowd sourced last-mile delivery service for retailers. Having been around for five years, Arendse explains the idea for the business and the model used.
In the second part, the discussion shifts to dealing with web traffic during large online sales. Craig Fester of 1-grid, a local web hosting platform says they anticipate a large increase in traffic for the retailers hosting their website with them this weekend.
Listen in to hear the full discussion and thoughts around these and other questions.
Business Day Spotlight is a MultimediaLIVE Production.
