The Challenge

Running a small business requires decision-makers to wear several hats. On top of day-to-day jobs, they can deal with marketing, HR, accounts and sales – not to mention the technology.

Busy boss

For around two out of every five employees in the report, the business leader was the one responsible for delivering staff IT training.

Early adopters

Many small businesses take on additional burden by running their own IT, as those who did hire outside help did so at an early stage.

Specialist help

Regardless the size of a business, if it’s making significant investment in technology, then consideration should be given to making use of professional service and support packages as part of the primary purchase.
