This research shows Australian business owners are embracing access to fast broadband and cloud applications to help them save time and achieve a better work-life balance.
It reveals that although four in five (80%) Australian business owners agree work-life balance was the key motivation behind starting their business, more than a third (39%) say work still takes up precious hours they would rather spend on ‘me time’.
It highlights business owners are now spending up to half of their working week online, with three quarters (75%) in industries such as construction, retail and hospitality now adopting sophisticated applications including cloud-based customer marketing, accounting and relationship management systems to increase productivity.
