The Danish Post Office will be spending around UKP5m on Unix systems from Dansk Data Elektronik A/S. Dansk Data will provide the Supermax 32-bit multi-processor system in 130 Post Offices throughout Denmark under what is the largest single computer order ever placed by the public sector in Denmark; about 30 companies participated in the bidding process. Dansk Data was particularly pleased to get the order as the new European Economic Community rules on open tendering meant that indigenous companies were no longer favoured – and the PTT said that Supermax was chosen because of its flexibility and expandability. The fact that Dansk Data’s software conformed to international standards also helped its tender. As well as the Supermax the order also includes 800 terminals, 400 printers and communications and standard Supermax software.
