BUSINESS SYSTEMS SUPPORTING THE RECEIPT OF ORDERS
By employment size, businesses with 200 or more persons employed were the most likely to report automated links across each of the response options. For example, 16% of businesses with 200 or more persons employed reported automated links for logistics, including electronic delivery, compared with 3% of businesses with 0-4 persons employed.
Businesses in Manufacturing were the least likely to report using automated links, with four in five businesses in this industry reporting that they had no automatic system links. Retail trade recorded the highest proportion of businesses with automated links to suppliers' business systems (21%) and reordering replacement supplies (15%).
