Businesses using IT were asked to identify the extent to which IT was used in selected business processes during the year ended 30 June 2012.
Overall, more than half of these businesses reported that they used IT to a high extent in accounting (61%) and invoicing (56%) business processes.
Across the selected business processes, the propensity for businesses to use IT to a high extent increased with each successive employment size range. For example, for accounting processes this ranged from 54% of businesses with 0-4 persons employed to 91% of businesses with 200 or more persons employed.
