On average, the survey found that its members have increased their annual spending on "e-business" in 2001 to 3.7 million pounds (US$5.4 million) per company, up from 3.4 million pounds in 2000, the CMA said.

According to 58 percent of respondents, businesses are implementing Internet-based services due to a need for "achievable cost reductions and improved services," while 51 percent categorized e-business as "an important tool to respond to competitors," the CMA said.

Sixty-nine percent of those surveyed said the main stumbling block in the uptake of e-business was the integration of products and services with existing systems, the CMA said.
