New Internet World Record for site creation
At 2pm on the 19th October Computer Experts (International) LTD in conjunction with John's Camping (UK) set a new word record by creating and selling from an e-commerce enabled web site in just over 20 minutes.
Using software called the 'Complete Internet Toolkit’ that was developed in house by the experts saw the creating of the site www.jcamping.instant-net.co.uk in groundbreaking time.
This attempt at setting a world record in web site design and hosting is to celebrate the launch of Instant Net, the UK’s first integrated free ISP (Internet Service Provider) and Web site service for businesses. As well as Computer Experts new Product 'The Complete Internet Toolkit’ that allows business PC users the ability to get onto the Internet and make complete and unique web sites in minutes.
"The Internet is the worlds’ fastest growing information medium, it’s now the case if you don’t have a web site or even email you’re missing a vital opportunity to let customers know about your business and products." Says Ian Partington, Managing Director of Computer Experts. "We have even gained International recognition for our own range of computer software products via the Internet."
Most dedicated business ISP’s will charge you anything between £100.00 and £300.00 per annum and provide you with very little extra help or advice. Some may point you in the direction of a web site designer within your local area but this will again cost hundreds if not thousands of pounds. Instant-Net and The Complete Internet Toolkit can give you Instant Web presence with e-commerce facilities and a fully designed web site with little fuss.
The world record for making and receiving an order from an e-commerce web site is now set by Computer Experts (International) LTD and stands at 20 minutes and 6.83 seconds, this has now been submitted to the Guinness Book of Records, and is awaiting approval.
