Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) need to be innovative if they are to stay ahead, prosper and retain key staff. They are also acutely cost-conscious, especially in these times when finance is hard to come by.
This means they should always be open to new technologies and the changes in working practice that they can deliver to improve productivity, cut costs and motivate employees.
Technology is changing the way we work. Increasingly, even small firms need to be able to respond around the clock. And the boundaries between home and office life are blurring.
