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
and N-XEC enabling technology for the Internet, from
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 millennium-products.org.uk
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.
