    BROOMFIELD, Colo., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 E-commerce leader, Izodia (formerly Infobank), today announced the opening of
 its new office development in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Izodia is the first
 business-to-business e-commerce specialist to open a local office in Scotland.
 The opening of the Scottish office follows the general availability of
 Izodia's latest product, InTrade 5, which began shipping in January.  The
 company also announced the appointment of John Wood to head up the Scottish
 organization and to build and manage a team of sales and support staff at the
 Edinburgh office.
     John will be responsible for the development of Izodia's business in
 Scotland to address the e-commerce requirements of the Scottish business
 community.  He joins Izodia from British Telecom and brings with him extensive
 knowledge of the Scottish business community and an understanding of the
 specific requirements of Scottish business.
     "Scotland has been perceived to be at a geographical disadvantage, purely
 because of our physical separation from our major trading partners and
 markets.  All that is now changing.  Electronic trading gives Scottish
 business the opportunity to overcome the disadvantages of geography and
 aggressively attack new, and increasingly global markets.  The global markets
 are open for business with Scotland.  Izodia is open for business in Scotland.
 Working together with our partners and Scottish business we can exploit these
 new business opportunities," said Wood.
     Izodia's first Scottish initiative will be to host an educational seminar
 in conjunction with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce to discuss the impact of
 e-commerce on small to medium sized businesses as well as large corporations,
 explore the opportunities provided by this emerging technology and to learn
 from live customers who are already implementing e-commerce solutions.  The
 event will be held on Monday, April 30 at 6 p.m. at The Roxburghe Hotel,
 Edinburgh.
