SME e-business solutions provider, Dragnet E-Business, has launched an add-on integration solution to web package – Dreamweaver from Macromedia.

For the first time, this will allow web developers to integrate Dragnet back-office functionality with a website’s front-end layout. Using the add-on tool web developers can ‘drag and drop’ Dragnet E-Business functionality into the website design, eliminating the need for manual scripting. Dragnet’s website is at www.dragnet.co.uk

In response to the challenges posed by cross-border internet fraud, the US and 12 other countries, including the UK and Norway, have joined forces to fight international consumer fraud over the web.

The US Federal Trade Commission, which will lead the programme, said the project is comprised of two components: a multilingual public website (www.econsumer.gov) and a password protected website for government use.

The public site will provide general information about consumer protection, contact information for consumer protection authorities and an online complaints form. All information will be available in English, Spanish, French and German.

Pitney Bowes has launched a new accounting system, MeterNet, which allows organisations and businesses to feed data from any number of franking machines to a single central PC where the data is stored and automatically processed.

The system can be customised to provide a breakdown of spending and works on Windows 98 and NT. The offering is aimed at high-volume mailers – typically large organisations and businesses with more than one franking machine in simultaneous use. For more information visit www.pitneybowes.co.uk.
