LNO&I  arose out of network and freelance computer programming undertaken by one of the now Directors (Rick Cottle) for and on  
behalf of a mid sized international group that he was working for as their Group Technical Director.

As much of this work was undertaken outside of normal working hours a company was registered in 1990 and the name Late Nite Oil & Ideas was chosen as it indicated when the activities were being done.

The freelance work and programming proved so successful that by 1993 it was decided to concentrate solely on this area of
expertise and LNO&I became a reality with our first receptionist/salesperson being employed in this year. and we continued to grow., taking on a number of Goverment Departments as well as expanding or commercial ventures

LNO&I specialized in Network and Computer related solutions to Business and Industry and supplied specialized programs to institutions such as Telkom, CSIR, CompuKids, Methodist Church of Southern Africa, Williard Batteries, Department of Education, Hi Q Tyres and PG Wood amongst others

As we grew various product ranges were added to the operation and we now offered excellent prices and services in the office and
computer media fields, our own ISP Site (Axis Africa Net) allowing our permanent staff complement to grow to seven. We also subcontracted expert opinion and services if and when we required them and numbered some of the leading people in their fields as our consultants.

But then disaster struck, with many of the Goverment Departments falling into ineptude and incompetence we ran into a massive cash flow issue trying to recover monies for services rendered from said goverment. This unfortunately had a knock-on effect when our then primary internet service provider hit us with bills for services that we were not aware of - this ended in court and although they lost the case the cost of defending and because we now had to replace that supplier (too many eggs in one basket) meant that LNO&i was oblidged to close stop .... at least temporarily ....  fast forward 9 months, we had restructured our service platform, our supply chain and our philosophy. ... we emerged from chaos as  ITC (International Trade and Commodities). with a play on the intials give a nod to our past and main thrust ( IT See!)

Now with over 30 years Experience in our field we can offer a depth of understanding that many other organizations cannot, allowing us to address problems and issues in a practical and cost effective manner.  - We are a Registered Internet Service Provider with mostly corporate users and in many instances maintain and update their WEB Pages and WEB sites.

Although a small organization we extensively use freelance specialists as required and have longtime associations with other computer and internet related companies allowing us to undertake work in the following major centres (Pretoria, Johannesburg, Witbank, Welkom, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth) and a wholly owned branch in Durban.
