TOWNPAGES: TownPages free access information service is ready to do the e-business

SEP 13, 1999, M2 Communications - ALTON, England -- TownPages, the company which is bringing free on-line information facilities to every major town and city in the UK, will be unveiling its new-look information kiosks from NCR at the E-Business show, which runs from 14-16 September in Hall Ten of Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre (NEC).

TownPages has recently commissioned NCR, the world leader in on-line kiosk and Automated Teller Machine (ATM) technology, to manufacture and maintain its national network of 3,500 touch-screen kiosks to be rolled out over the next 2 years. Based on easy-to-use touch-screen technology, the free access kiosks will, in the near future, boast print facilities and smart card readers.

"E-Commerce is already a way of life in the United States, and is now becoming an everyday reality for millions of people in Europe," commented TownPagesNet.com plc Managing Director Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs. "Through the TownPages national grid of free-access kiosks, everybody can share in the benefits of this new technology - not just the 18% who have access to the Internet on their PCs.

"Before the end of the year, hundreds of TownPages kiosks will be found in leisure centres, shopping malls, railway stations and other 'high footfall' locations. Our e-commerce facilities are also rapidly expanding. We have, for example, signed a unique e-commerce and content deal with the prestigious Francis Frith Collection, which will give TownPages' website and kiosk users access to the most extensive black and white, and sepia photographic record of Britain. Users will be able to purchase framed prints, books, posters and other Frith merchandise through TownPages."

The TownPages system, available both through the kiosk network and the Internet website (www.TownPages.co.uk) provides comprehensive local and national information. The 'Go National' section is expanding to include a range of e-commerce focused web channels, covering subjects such as property, cars, travel, tickets, sport and education. In the 'Go Local' section, there are opportunities for local businesses to advertise and sell their products on-line.

TownPages also offers a website design service to suit every business and budget, from entry level systems to sophisticated sites with full e-commerce facilities. All websites designed by the company can be linked to the TownPages website and incorporated into the kiosk service free of charge.
