Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Evesham Micros is renaming and revamping itself to get in tune with the dot com age. From 17 March the system builder will trade as "evesham.com", selling only to home users via the Web and telephone, as well as through its six existing shops. There are also plans afoot to spin off a separate division called "evesham" to deal with its business, education and public sector customers. The moves follow a boom period in Web sales for the Midlands-based company. Evesham's online sales for January accounted for 20 per cent of its business over £1 million, and seven times higher than this time last year. It said the Internet would play a key role in its future, but stressed there were no plans to become 100 per cent cyber company. It also denied that the company aimed to float and cash in on the Internet stocks frenzy. ® Related stories: Evesham bundles free Net access with PCs Pentium-killer PCs are go Evesham sings song of south with London office
