2017 Spend to Grow 7%.
Large retailers spend £2,000 per employee on IT & telecom products and services. This is dramatically less than the corresponding outlay by all UK large organisations which stands at over £5,500. Large retail traders’ expenditure on both computer services and IT & telecom staff are a third of that by the rest of UK large enterprises. The comparable investment in telecom services is even lower at one seventh of the UK norm.
