Patricia Hewitt has launched a 'simple to understand' web-site aimed at giving small businesses free Internet access to IT advice and the latest news on the Government's e-commerce strategy.
The launch of the site for the DTI-led Information Society Initiative, falls in line with the Government's strategy to have one million small and medium sized businesses trading online by 2002.
Hewitt, the e-minister, speaking at the launch of the site, said it would prove to be an essential tool for SMEs looking to take advantage of the opportunities offered through technology and e-commerce.
She added: 'This Web site will act as a one-stop shop for companies who want their questions answered quickly and accurately.'The site provides information on all the services offered by the ISI and includes information on e-commerce and how to trade safely online, without using 'complicated jargon.'
