Compaq has made further steps into ecommerce, taking a minor equity stake in Inex, a provider of Internet commerce applications.
The deal follows the announcement in March that Compaq would, as part of its ecommerce strategy, distribute Inex? Commerce suite of products and bundle versions of these on its small business desktops. Commerce modules enable companies to design, build and maintain Web sites for electronic transactions.
Compaq will also ship special versions of its Proliant, Prosignia and Proliant Firewall servers, configured for ecommerce, particularly in small businesses.
Kenny Kurtzman, vice president of Compaq?s small and medium business division, said: "Compaq is committed to making electronic business a market reality for all businesses."
The Inex range of Internet commerce applications works in conjunction with Microsoft?s core technologies and is designed to create a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution for companies selling on the Web.
