Latest IT IPO for ASX

Yet another local tech company has announced its intentions to list on the Australian Stock Exchange.

Australian IT consultancy and solutions company, ICSGlobal plans to raise $6 million through an ASX listing early next year.

The initial public offering (IPO) of six million one-dollar shares or 23 per cent of the company, opened today and will close on December 29. It will be ready to listing in the first week of January 2000.

ICSGlobal provides large companies with IT solutions for internal and external business requirements, such as the integration of industrial or manufacturing technology with office computer systems, or the introduction of the GST.

ICSGlobal chief executive officer, Tim Murray, who will own 70 per cent of the company after the listing, said ICS was also well positioned to assist businesses moving into e-commerce with IT consulting and system development and integration.

"Our services are designed to complement the services our clients are offering by providing integration and engineering solutions for their own particular systems," Murray said.

Murray expects ICSGlobal to become an e-commerce specialist within two years.

This expectation was enhanced by the recent alliance formed between ICS and the General Electric (GE) company's e-commerce brand GE ECXpress, Murray said.

The deal between the companies will see ICSGlobal provide services on e-business and e-commerce projects that involve the GE ECXpress range of e-commerce products.

Revenues for the company are forecast to reach more than $17 million this financial year, up from $13.73 million in 1999.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
