The article highlights partnership benefits for members of ICAEW's ABG Professional Information with Gateway Computers, one of the world's leading manufacturers and UNAT Direct, part of the worldwide American International Group. The Institute selected it as an IT partner because of its reputation for understanding technology needs and building solutions to meet those requirements especially for the accountancy profession. The benefits include availability of business advisers to offer guidance and useful information in the computer stores, a new subscription-based online training site, where customers will receive 12 months' unlimited access to more than 250 IT training courses online, and three CD software packs designed to offer multimedia, interactive training on standard Microsoft products. AIS cost effective travel insurance of UNAT Direct covers benefits up to £ 10 million for medical bills, 24-hour emergency assistance, and generous compensation for problems such as cancelled or delayed flights and lost luggage. A refreshing feature of it is that you only pay for the actual number of days you are travelling with trip premiums from only £ l.50 a day in Europe.
