Wax info Limited of Cambridge – one of the country´s leading developers of secure distributed content management software – has completed the first commercial installation of its new client / server application, ActiveLibrary, in a Tokyo, Japan.
Wax info, backed by “blue chip” institutional investors including Cambridge University and the HSBC Enterprise Fund, made this announcement as part of the launch of its new software solutions into international markets.
This success follows the establishment of an office in Japan. The company´s successful debut of ActiveLibrary in Japan is a key milestone in the launch of its product into the Asian markets.
Mr. Nigel Spence, CEO of Wax info, said: “This is a great achievement with our customers, Japan Food Information Center, which is a food-science and safety ´think tank´ whose own clients include international leading companies such as Coca Cola, Roche, Novartis and Dupont. This is an excellent way of introducing the power and benefits of ActiveLibrary to a diverse range of potential users.”
Wax info Limited was formed in 1997 and is a “spin-off” from The University of Cambridge, Cambridge UK. In early 2000, Wax info received venture capital funding from the Hong Kong-Shanghai Banking Corporation´s (HSBC) Enterprise Fund for East Anglia and the Home Counties, which is managed by Cambridge-based Egan & Talbot Capital Limited. It was in 2000 that Wax won a contract to supply its ActiveLibrary product to the NHS. This delivered up-to-date, mission-critical documents, such as Best Clinical Guidelines, to desk-top PCs in a number of NHS surgeries, hospitals, prisons and military bases.
