Company background London, November 1999. QAZ.com Ltd. is a privately owned British company founded in 1999 by Steven Homer. It specialises in providing services that intelligently organise Web-based information enabling users to find what they want more quickly and/or more conveniently. A key company focus is the exploitation of the Internet as a truly global and truly local resource.
The company’s main focus is its two related Web directory businesses: QAZ.com and Gift-Net.com.
QAZ.com is an in-depth, online UK directory service that uses advanced addressing techniques (known as 'concatenated addressing') to allow users to quickly access information on specific areas of interest. Normally users type in the name of their chosen directory or search site and, once at the site, type in their area of interest. With concatenated addressing they can type in the subject as part of the Web site address. E.G. cd.QAZ.com, garden.QAZ.com or books.QAZ.com.
This technology was conceived by QAZ.com Ltd and has been implemented by InfaDotNet. It is believed that QAZ.com is the first site in the world using this addressing system.
Gift-Net.com is an international gift-giving directory site with reviews of more than 160 Web gift sites in 30 countries. Users wishing to send gifts to another country find a supplier close to the recipient and simply pay for the goods over the Internet, reducing delivery time and costs. Gift-Net.com is believed to be the only dedicated international gift site on the Web.
Over the coming months the QAZ.com service will launch in several European, Far Eastern and South American markets; Gift-Net.com will be considerably expanded and will shortly be launched in several different language versions. It will be renamed The Global Gift Guide (TheGlobalGiftGuide.com or TheGGG.com).
The company is also active in the Wireless Application Protocol field and will launch WAP versions of existing products in 2000 and plans to launch a specialised WAP access service, AdGlo.com, in the second quarter of 2000.
