The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

IBM has launched a scheme designed to make it easier for small businesses to buy and use Web technology. IBM is offering a range of StarterPacks to get companies on the Web from a cost of around £80. It is mainly targeting these hardware and software bundles at businesses with less than 50 staff. The scheme, launched in the UK this week, is a mixture of several previous IBM small business campaigns. There are four StarterPacks on offer. Start Selling on the Web, Put Your Business on the Web, E-mail & Teamwork on the Web, and Grow your Business on the Web. These range from a £15 per month package to create a transaction-ready Web site, to a full e-commerce package, including an IBM Netfinity server, for £5227. The US vendor is also offering the packs on a credit basis, allowing businesses to delay payments until the year 2000. ®
