Ashley Friedlein, CEO, e-consultancy, comments, "Despite the dotcom downturn there is still a huge knowledge gap when it comes to e-business. Agencies and client organisations alike are grappling with new media and how to get the most value from them. Our service saves people time as we've selected the best sources and brought them all under one roof. It also saves them money because we are aggregating various paid-content sources - if you were to pay for each individually it would cost an awful lot more."
