BT Awards For Innovation in E-Business: The Winners

The BT Awards for Innovation in E-business have been
announced by organisers ABFL, including the premier award, which this
year went to the Thomas Cook Commercial Foreign Exchange (CFX)
service.


The same site also took the Hitachi Europe Award for
Innovation in e-business in the finance sector.


“Winning this award firmly establishes Thomas Cook as a
leading force in the world of business finance and supports our belief
that this system really will change the face of business foreign exchange
forever,” said Patrick Harrison, head of sales at Thomas Cook CFX.
