Lycos targets SMEs on Web
Will we able to hire more staff now?
Lycos said it had introduced a guide to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on its UK site. The company said the site includes tax advice, guidance on recruitment, business associations and other business related services. The site will be continuously revised and updated, Lycos claimed, with plans for get rich quick schemes and other entrepreneurial activities. According to Charles Walker, UK MD for Lycos, the WWW has plenty of information useful to SMEs but his company has concentrated all the information on one site now. “We have concentrated on web sites of direct relevance to businesses in the UK and Ireland," he said. The company has also introduced an online shopping centre aimed at UK consumers, with pointers to prominent online sites including Dixons, Tesco, Thomas Cook and hardware and software firms. ®
