Mid-market not taking advantage of web
More than a third of SMEs are missing out on the internet revolution, and it could be costing them the equivalent of four working weeks a year in lost time, according to a report.
And some 42% of bosses polled by the Co-operative Bank’s Business Direct service did not have internet access at work.
But, of the managers who were wired to the web, 46 % said online working was saving them up to three hours a week ? almost four working weeks a year. A hi-tech hard core (8%) was saving more than six hours a week.
