Sunday 17 March 2013 | 23:44 CET | News
The proportion of Australian businesses using tablet computers is forecast to increase to 31 percent in the next twelve months, with the number of tablets in business use growing by at least 50 percent, according to Roy Morgan research.At the end of last year, 23 percent of Australian businesses were using tablet computers. However not all industries have embraced this new technology at the same rate: while 37 percent of information, media and telecommunications businesses are already using tablets, only 13 percent of agricultural businesses have a tablet computer. Different industries also have differing rates of intending to take up tablet computers: information, media and technology businesses are the most likely to buy or replace tablets in the next twelve months at 21 percent, followed by wholesale trade businesses (18%), education and training businesses (17%), and professional, scientific and technical services (17%). The number of tablets in use by business is likely to increase by more than 50 percent over the next twelve months, with most of the sales likely to be to either micro businesses (with less than 5 employees), or large businesses (those with more than 200 employees).
