Digex Inc., the Beltsville-based Internet service provider, has completed its acquisition of Electronic Press Services, a Boston firm that makes software to connect World Wide Web sites to large corporate databases.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. But Digex executives have said the capabilities of EPS' software will help them make more versatile Web sites for customers who want to conduct retail sales or similar businesses online.
EPS' 40 employees are expected to continue to work in Boston, Digex said when the deal was announced last month.
Digex went public in October, and already offered telecommunications services for basic Internet connections and higher-value services such as customer Web sites on Digex's computers.
It strategy focuses on business customers because Digex executives think corporations will adapt to the Internet faster than consumers and will use it for more expensive applications.
