Connectivity deficit costs UK £30 billion a year

According to research undertaken by O2 and the Centre for Economic and Business Research, British business is paying a high price for poor connectivity.

A survey of 1000 middle managers found that:

·         80% of administrative staff don’t have remote access to key business systems
·         Improved connectivity could save each employee up to 127 hours of travel per year

The report states that organisations should work hard to improve connectivity to:

·         Eradicate needless journeys
·         Provide better access to information ‘anywhere’ to enable employees to make better use of time and increase productivity
·         Improve the efficiency of meetings, in particular saving workers over 50 hours a year in wasted follow up activities
·         Improve customer service and increase sales with real-time information.
