Getting to Net Speed


The Internet is all about speed. You don't have to do it all. Now, there are tons of companies turning their attention to helping you get online.

OUTSOURCE THE WHOLE DARN THING
Scores of companies from giant IBM to upstart Scient will do everything from design to maintenance. And since many of them can host your site at their computer centers, you don't need to buy one lick of gear or hire a Web guru.

FARM OUT WEB SITE DUTIES
Startup Epicentric will develop and run an enterprise portal for your company. Don't want your engineers tied up handling E-mail? Outsource that task to Critical Path.

HAND OVER ROTE TASKS
Forget about handling your own distribution. FedEX and UPS, as well as startups iShip and Tandata, are experts at getting products to customers.
