Webzter Open for Business in London

Web developer Webzter Corp. has opened an office in London, and plans for the new branch to serve all of Europe in the next few months.

Other offices were also opened in Rio de Janeiro and in New York City and San Jose, Calif.

The announcement of this major expansion comes just days after Webzter launched regional offices throughout Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.

"Webzter's growth potential is exponential as we are the gatekeepers to e-business," said Dean Shafer, president and CEO.

"We are expanding rapidly into both U.S. and international market places. Webzter Corporation is currently on track to book approximately $4m to $5m in revenue for the 1999 calendar year."

Dean Shafer went on to explain that current revenues represent a growth rate of over 1,000 per cent from 1998, with 45 per cent pretax net profit. The secret, he said, lies in Webzter's combination of "innovative growth strategies and virtual development methodologies."

"Webzter will offer our international clients advanced U.S. technology-based Web systems and e-business methodologies while maintaining the colloquialisms of the local markets," said Shafer.

Webzter's main competition among high-end, international web developers are iXL, USWeb, IBM, Razorfish, International Integration, AppNet and ("our prime competitor," according to Shafer) Agency.com.
