International Track 200

This Warrington company develops software that lets you access your desktop computer from your mobile phone. Six years ago, chairman Charlie Sharland moved the business into this area from security software development and says it is now one of the market leaders. Its international clients include Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Motorola. Last year Goldman Sachs took a minority stake in the company and, helped by growth and acquisitions in America, it has seen international sales rise 58% a year, from £11.8m in 2009 to £29.4m in 2011.
