Listen: UK’s smallest firms losing out due to tech confusion

Thousands of small and medium-sized businesses could save 150 hours each year by adopting new tech tools to digitise manual processes, according to new research from Dropbox and Enterprise Nation.

While the majority of businesses surveyed (76.5%) said they could not survive without tech tools, around 1 in 5 admitted they do not currently use tools crucial to digitisation and business continuity.

Taking advantage of tech solutions such as video conferencing, cloud computing and project management software could collectively save small firms the equivalent of £8.1bn in saved time every year.

The cutting-edge tech company and small business support platform are partnering to provide small business owners with free events, webinars and e-learning videos on the topics of productivity, collaboration and tech tools for business. The first webinar will take place on 22nd November.

Aston spoke to Andy Wilson, director at Dropbox UK.
