UK-based Computer Experts Ltd struck a blow for the British IT industry today when it announced that the US Treasury had submitted an order for a 150,000-seat licence for its Millennium Bug Toolkit. The UK firm which already has an impressive client list that includes Sony, Shell, Coca-Cola, Smith Kline Beecham and Motorola, has now signed a blanket agreement with the US Government which will see its toolkit deployed on every PC in the US secret service, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and US Customs. Computer Experts will also provide consultants to help the Government deploy the system in a deal which will earn the firm a fee in the region of £4m.
