Intel turns software barrow boy

Launches biz exchange website aimed at SMBs

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Intel may be busy shaking its piggybank to stump up cash for the record EU fine it was handed this week, but that hasn't stopped it launching a new online software shop for SMBs.

The company's latest software project in Europe has been dubbed the Intel Business Exchange Software Download Store, or Intel BX for short.

It launched the website, which is part of its Software and Services outfit, yesterday.

Intel has inked deals with around 130 software firms to punt their gear at small and medium-sized businesses through the online shop starting this week. The site sells a variety of software products and storage products - both online services and shrink-wrapped software products.

The site itself has been available in the US for the past year, and now it's been extended to cover the UK, France and Germany too.

Customers can buy and download software from Intel BX that includes database management, security and network tools aimed specifically at the SMB market.

Intel reels in a undisclosed cut from every download made via the online store.

UK customers are currently being offered an added incentive of ten per cent off listed prices at Intel BX until 30 June. ®
