Tandy set to go online

Tandy Electronics plans to have its entire inventory available online before the end of this financial year.

The site, due to be launched in the second quarter of 2000, will be based on its Canadian affiliate Radioshack's site which was launched in July this year.

"Our aim is to establish a very strong Web presence similar to that of our Canadian counterpart," said Tandy Australia's marketing director, Robert Hayes.

"The Canadian site offers a range of products, information and services, and we intend to adopt a similar strategy," Hayes said.

Tandy Australia and Canada's Radioshack are both owned by Intertan -- an independent international arm of the US-based Tandy Group that operates the Radioshack franchise throughout the US.

Meanwhile, Tandy Australia is also in the process of finalising partnership agreements between itself, Sony, Panasonic and Kodak, which will see the company establish a 'store-in-a-store' concept similar to that announced between Microsoft and the Tandy Group in the US.

The US deal will see the 7000 Radioshack stores across the US establish the concept in an aim to promote Microsoft's range of Internet products for dial-up and broadband Internet access.

Hayes said Tandy, which has more than 300 stores in Australia, has a close marketing and merchandising affiliation with its US counterpart, and said the company was looking to establish similar arrangements with companies like Microsoft and Compaq in Australia.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
