The top issues affecting UK businesses today

The first ever *Azets SME Barometer report surveyed 760 Azets SME clients across the UK and the Nordics (401 in the UK). It revealed that despite the economy, Covid-19 and competition ranking in the top three threats for UK SMEs, 68% feel positive about the UK’s economic outlook over the next 12 months and over half (56%) expect their profits to increase.

Brexit remains firmly on the agenda in all regions outside London and South East where it was named as the third biggest threat. The Barometer also highlighted that financial health, adapting the business model and employee wellbeing were top priorities for SMEs.

Benefit from the speed and efficiency of the latest tech

Technology and digitalisation is changing how we all do business. Companies are automating fast, introducing more agile processes, shifting working patterns, and planning how to reskill their people for unknown future jobs.

The risks are proliferating too, with increased data sharing with third parties, new regulations such as GDPR, more staff working from home and the continually evolving threat of cyber-attack.

It's the job of our specialist technology consulting team to help you navigate these challenges. Whether you need advice on your key technology and digital risks, an in-depth assessment of your cyber security, a review of your compliance with GDPR or an assessment of your programme delivery maturity, we have the skills and experience to deliver creative solutions as well as peace of mind.

As platinum partners for all leading cloud software solution providers in the UK, we work with our network of technology partners to ensure that you’re using the latest and most effective tools, saving you valuable time and reducing costly admin processes.
