Seagull, a software vending company, announced today that EDS, a strategic information technology partner for the United Kingdom government’s Department of Inland Revenue, will use Seagull products in new e-government projects. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The inland revenue department will use Seagull applications called WinJa and Transidiom to create open interfaces for the government’s IT infrastructure, allowing it to deliver Web applications more efficiently and in a timely manner, according to a statement released by Seagull.
Currently, the U.K. government is attempting to take much of its systems online, expand access channels and cut costs, and to provide constituents with the ability to serve themselves via the Internet.
Seagull recently extended a $1.5 million line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank, which will be used “for general corporate purposes,” according to a statement released by the company on Nov. 13.
