As well as, locally, there are many online sellers and buyers, and there are several people start up their online businesses which are called E- Commerce.1*. This researched will discuss about how to set up an E-commerce business in Saudi Arabia.

2.0 Product and type of service

This E- Commerce Business will be for Human Resources Services which are including training, hiring, organizational development, and consulting. This E-Commerce Business is going to provide Human Recourses Services which is very important to enhance and organize any organization activities. This E- commerce business will be focused on training, recruiting talented candidate, prepare a proper organization effectiveness plan, development, and consulting. The business will contact the companies through the Internet, especially LinkedIn because LinkedIn is the most website that the majority of the companies are using it for connection, establishing, and publishing their companies’ trades2*.

Many companies are looking to improve their Human Resources Practices by having some consultants in order to let the companies reach their golas. Moreover, provide a training courses to the employees are very significant for any organizations. Furthermore, hiring talented candidates which are having high competencies is going to improve the business grow for several reasons. The first reason is because the talented employees will come with different experiences that merge with the new companies activates. The second reason is because your company’s reputation will increase with these talented employees because your revenue will be increased3*.

3.0 Business vision

The vision of business is we want to be the best Human Recourses Services provider in the Saudi Arabia by being committed to our clients to provide them recruiting talents, training their employees, consulting them, and develop the overall organization in order to support the clients to accomplish their goals. The mission of this business is by measuring, monitoring, and evaluating our company services that our clients ask, and by developing our services based on the market demand.

4.0 Business objectiveThe business objectives are building strong relationship with the customer, creating a timeline of our objectives (Key Performance Indicator), customer satisfaction, ease of use of our website.

5.0 Business E-commerce Processes

After creating the vision, mission, objectives, and suitable website for the business, the business process will start by publishing our services through the most popular website which is called LinkedIn. The business will send emails to attract the companies in Saudi Arabia by providing them a list our services. For example, the marketing department in the company will send the information through the email to the targeted customers which explains all-important details. When we receive any interested company, we will ask them to create a profile in our website to start engaging them in our dashboard in respect of contacting them online, and serve them through the Internet. For development purposes, once our company provide the clients services, the business is going to submit an evaluation form in the client user account in our website where the clients should contribute their opinions about our company’s services.

6.0 SWOT analysisApplying SWOT analysis is a significant step on this stage where the business can identify the strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats. In this business, SWOT analysis would be, fist, what are the strengths in Saudi Arabia Market? In 2019, the opening jobs are almost 3600 vacancies 4* which is required recruitment process. Also, one our services is going to have a powerful role on these opening vacancies which is the training because when any organizations have filled a position that means the candidate needs a training. Nonetheless, the weakness are these vacancies the majority of them are for lower level which guides us to improve and transform some our activities in order to hit the market demand. Regarding opportunities, our services with the clients will be expanded in 2019, and it is a great time to start in this time because we still have lack of Human Recourse Services provider in Saudi Arabia; we have only 10, and the majority of them outside the country *5. Treats in this stage is super critical because we just entered the market, so we need to brand our trade, and we must to have a great deal with the clients; also, we should monitor the markets by statistical measurements. One great example can illustrate that is coming from one of my friends’ experience. He started to build a food tracker in the competitive place in the eastern of Saudi Arabia, and he did not do proper measurements of what he has, and what others have, he just started the business by selling the food to consumers, but unfortunately, he lost his project.

7.0 E-commerce websiteThe website will be built in a very easy way in order to allow the customer use it comfortably. The e- commerce business’s objectives should be understandable to the audiences to show them the capabilities of the website. There is an important part when building the website which is the description of the components. (There are some steps which are very significant of building website. First one is system analysis which includes business objectives and system functionalities. Business objectives are the capabilities that the website will have, about the system functionalities are the capabilities needed to achieve business goals. Second step is system design which includes hardware and software. System design will describe the components of a system and how the relationship will be with other components. Once the system is setting and the components have been descripted, there will be two components of the system design logical design and physical design. The third step is building the system. The website will go with build own for several reasons. The first reason is because the owners of the website have already the team. The second reason is because the team has already variety of skills. After that, the last step will be tasting, implementation, and maintenance. Testing has three parts which are unit testing, system testing, and acceptance testing. Unit testing is the stage where the software will be tested for both individual and components. System testing is the stage of the software when a completed entreated system has been testing. Acceptance testing is the stage where the system testes the acceptability in the process of software testing. *6 Maintenance, is a very significant step on building an e-commerce, and it can be executed by the flowing steps. Step one is security. Customers need a secure website because they are going to their personal information such as email address and Credit Card Number. Second Step is Backups. Backups will help the owner of an e-commerce to recover from a disaster without them. In another words, backups process is like an insurance of the whole activates that have done through the website. Third step is update. Update is very important to keep the website save form hackers. Last step which is called uptime. Uptime is a vital step because the website should not go down even for only five minutes for some reasons. The first one is because customer might use other websites to do purchasing. Second reason due to the business’s reputation of the customer relationship management. *7 .Simply, maintenance should be ongoing process. The e- commerce website will be leased form a vendor, so this e- commerce server will be located at vendor’s facility. The web site functions in sales. The website will have an online catalog where the customer can choose and observe all items that the website provides. Also, shopping cart which allows customers to add their items and review them before make purchase. Credit card processing is very vital factor for both the customer and the merchant. The merchant will check the credit card is valid or not, the customer will have proven when he or she pouches form the website regarding any issues after purchasing. The website will full details about the company. For example, the first page will contain the phone number, and other social website such Facebook.
