Survey A report by market research company Banner has claimed that the majority of UK companies risk losing business to European competitors because of slowness in implementing e-commerce. According to the survey, which approached 4,584 IT decision makers, only four per cent are implementing e-commerce, meaning that the UK lags far behind Europe. While net usage has grown in the UK over the last year, the main areas of growth are accessing the World Wide Web and e-mail, according to Banner. The report added: "European Monetary Union and the Internet should herald the arrival of truly global businesses and cross border commerce but it hasn't. There appears to be little development of using the Internet as anything other than an email system." ®
