Apparently Britain has the highest internet uptake in Europe and online buyers spend more per capita than their continental counterparts. Software developer Arrk is helping clients such as the RAC to make the most of this trend by improving and supporting their e-business portals. Founder Julian Howison ran the business from his home for three years, before securing £25,000 from an angel investor to open an office in Manchester. Working closely with its Mumbai subsidiary to offer global integration services has helped to boost sales 185% a year from £761,000 in 2004 to £6.2m in 2006.
