Internet Products Win Top BCS Awards

Internet products developed by UK companies are
among the top awards given this year by the British Computer

The two Internet-related products chosen for awards were
ShopCreator e-commerce software from
Shopcreator Developments
and N-XEC enabling technology for the Internet, from
Insigma Technologies.
A third award was given to MathEngine for its 3D development

The software from ShopCreator allows businesses to
set up and manage a fully featured e-commerce trading site
without technical knowledge. Using it, traders can quickly
establish an online presence, and — according to the vendor —
begin taking revenue on the same day. It provides
hosting, security, search engine registration and optional
credit card clearance.

A very different kind of product, N-XEC enables web designers
to include sophisticated audio-visual content with control
over timing and delivery for automatic reception by users.
The vendor claims it offers a completely new advertising
standard for the Internet and provides a solution to the
problems of remote learning.

N-XEC also enjoys “Millennium Product” status, having
been among only a handful of Internet products selected
for this honour. The Millennium Products, details of which
can be found at
came about after Prime Minister Tony Blair asked
businesses to demonstrate the best of current British designs.

This year’s awards by the 37,000-member strong
British Computer Society
are the 27th to be held — the longest running IT
awards in the UK.
