Local IT firm leads UK charge

Sydney, 16 August 2004 - ISYS Search Software is capping off its successful move into the UK with an entry in the UK Trade & Investment International Business Awards.

Operating in the UK since 2000, ISYS made its first sale to a UK police force in 2003. Now almost half of Britain's police organisations use ISYS Search Software technology to cross reference and retrieve information across databases, reports and other law enforcement resources.

Following its success in law enforcement, ISYS is actively targeting UK local government, national health service organisations, recruiters and government organisations which are implementing Freedom of Information compliance.

"Spreading our wings into the UK has been a great success for us. These awards will open even more doors into government and big business," said Ian Davies, founder and managing director of ISYS.

Announced by Trade Minister Mark Vaile in May, the UK Trade and Investment International Business Awards will recognise Australian companies achieving great things in the UK. Open to Australian-owned companies of any size and from any industry sector, winners will be selected from three categories:

Prizes include:
Two return British Airways Business Class tickets to the UK
Free, professionally supported publicity
The chance to expand business through exclusive VIP networking events in the UK and Australia
Membership of the UK Trade & Investment's Investor Program.
