Management problems are said to be behind the sudden disappearance of Intercompany Communications Technology Ltd, the East London-based UK distributor of The Software Link’s PC MOS/386 operating system and two memory cards, Allcard and Chargecard developed by All Computers Inc, Toronto, Canada. The company has not answered its phone for four days and is assumed to have closed down. The PC-MOS/386 multi-tasking MS-DOS-cloned operating system was introduced by The Software Link, Atlanta, Georgia last September. The company claimed that the operating system would overtake Unix and Xenix sales in the space of three years, and occupied vast amounts of glossy advertising space reiterating this message. The company officially began looking for a new UK distributor yesterday, and maintains that PC-MOS/386 is selling extremely successfully in the European market. All Computers is playing down the news by arguing that ICCT is only one of many distributors; the company’s president, Mers Cutt, has nevertheless arrived in London to look for a new UK distributor and to start disentangling its relationship with ICCT.
