A good point to remind your client is that IC is an application server,
although its ecommerce DEMO gets most of the spot light. The point is, that
depending on how serious this client is, and how bright they hope their future
will be, IC can be extended to scale with them, from CRM, to shop, to backend,
to accounting, and on, and on.
Anything you want to do, can be done, can be implemented, or can be built in IC
by you, by them, or by a consultant.
In fact, a good trademark for IC would be, "What do you want to do today?"
