Welcome to CompInfo

The Computer Information Centre (CompInfo) is a key reference site for IT/IS users and buyers, with links to hardware and software companies, industry organisations and user groups, technology information sources, online support and up-to-date news. There is no subscription charge or usage charge, but you are welcome to log your areas of IT/IS interest so that you can be kept informed when new information comes to hand, or when pages are updated.

  • The Industry News Section covers both up-to-date global news from the Computer and Communications Industry with daily news feeds from a range of key international sources, as well as a section linking to the full-text Press/News Releases of major players in the industry.
  • The Manufacturers' Pages link you to the pages of some 1600 hardware and software manufacturers, with access to information about their products and services
  • The VAR and Service Provider Pages give access to the pages of VARs and Solution Providers, as well as to Service Providers, Consultants and Trainers.
  • If you are looking for Business Applications, we provide links to Manufacturers and Providers of Business Solutions, as well as to the Business Applications catalogues of many major Manufacturers

Key reasons why users access CompInfo include the availability of information when needing support, or when seeking information about new technology, or when making decisions about new suppliers.

  • Our Technology Centre provides access to reference information on over 60 different topics, as well as to Manufacturers and Solution Providers in these areas.
  • Our Online Support Pages provide you with direct connection to Manufacturers' Online Support Pages, without having to wait for slow site loading through their Home Pages.

  • Our Evaluation section provides access to IT test laboratories as well as to evaluation services and industry reports.

  • Our Search Engine is a fast way of finding information on our site. From this page you can also link to hundreds of other IT/IS search resources around the world.

For Value Added Resellers, we provide VAR Business pages which link you to Business Opportunities offered by Manufacturers, as well as means of finding out about new business.

And, finally, because we believe everyone needs a break, we provide access to Non-IT Newspapers, Magazines and News Resources (including Reuters, Press Association and CNN), to Travel and Hotel Information and to general Recreational and Reading information.
