Vodafone Small Business


July 2010

Research commissioned by Vodafone has revealed that British bosses of SME’s have doubled their time in actually attempting to expand their business in the last 6 months. This means that the average boss spends as average of 30% of their time attempting to drive growth as opposed to approximately 15% of their time six months ago.

Administration and clerical work which can often be the scourge of bosses took up to a quarter of bosses time 6 months ago compared to just one tenth of their time on average now.

It is not surprising to find the results of the recent Vodafone small business research pointing towards a focus on increasing business during a recession, however, the research does note that further efforts can be made towards moving away from micromanaging administrative areas. Vodafone highlight that SME bosses spend two working weeks each year dealing and negotiating with core suppliers such as telcos and IT support, whilst seven working weeks are spent dealing with administrative chores.

Rob Shardlow, Sales Director for small and medium businesses at Vodafone UK, commented: “Vodafone UK is partnering with British businesses, offering them integrated fixed and mobile communications solutions that mean bosses spend less time dealing with multiple communications suppliers and have more time to drive their business forward. This means bosses and their staff can work where and when they can best serve their customers, ultimately benefiting the bottom line of the business.”
