The Silvered Leaf & Co. project addresses a potential on-line web solution and e-business for marketing, selling and distributing specialized and contemporary theme-based gift baskets featuring products produced and manufactured on the Western Slope of Colorado. Currently, there are many web-based businesses that offer gift baskets with a variety of goods. However, all of the available options duplicate each other in quality, selection of products, and overall appeal. In addition, the web content and solutions on the existing sites are limited and cluttered. Each provides a few features that are appealing but none contain the majority of the important features users need to have a "personalized" experience. The Silvered Leaf & Co. project will seek to create the framework of a technologically, advanced and dynamic web site that will feature a variety of unique, theme-based gift baskets unlike any other available option. The web site will offer critical features that are most important to both the external and internal users. This potential online solution will also address important security issues that will allow a network to exist between the external and internal web sites, while protecting the integrity of the data passing through. By developing a secure, well planned, and dynamic e-business featuring unique theme-based gift baskets, the Silvered Leaf & Co. will be the key to capitalizing on the existing opportunity.
