Last Updated: 1 April 2004

26 March 2004 - A Cambridge-based consultancy has been awarded the European Seal of Excellence by the European Multimedia Forum at its recent global trade show for information technology, telecommunications & networks, software and services.

Information Transfer LLP, specialists in communication, e-learning and knowledge management, were among 20 European companies selected to receive the Seal awarded to companies with applications, services or technologies that are genuinely "outstanding and world class."

The Seal honours the outstanding achievements of companies active in the multimedia industry. It is awarded annually on the basis of five criteria: innovation, performance, user friendliness, benefit to society, and market creation and penetration.

Information Transfer was nominated by the East of England Multimedia Alliance, in part for their work on the development of a web portal to deliver skills and business management training to small and medium enterprises in the East of England multimedia sector. Information Transfer worked with EMMA to create the training site, which was funded by the European Social Fund and the East of England Development Agency.

"This well-deserved award provides international recognition that ICT and multimedia companies in the East of England are amongst the best in the world," said Richard Field of the East of England Multimedia Alliance.

The keynote speaker at the awards event, Mr. Oluf Ulseth, Norwegian State Secretary for Industry, congratulated the winners and said that European multimedia industry has a lot to contribute.

"Europe needs companies that create products and services that are ready to take on the world markets," said Secretary Ulseth. "The winning companies have managed to distinguish themselves among the very best in the world."

The European Multimedia Forum will now promote the winners internationally, both within and without Europe, particularly into the U.S. and Asian markets through its "Accelerator" programme.

Information Transfer has more than 20 years’ experience in the creation and delivery of computer-based training, for both private and public sector organisations. They are working with companies such as Bayer, Chiron Vaccines-Evans and KPMG, developing applications to help organisations manage and deliver a blend of information and training to their staff.

Information Transfer developed the Seminar Learning System to allow its clients to efficiently deliver web-based training to a dispersed work force. Seminar is used by organisations around the globe, including the NHS, KPMG, and Coca-Cola.
