The very smallest printing companies dedicate almost £500 per employee on telecom services. This is the highest amount across all sizes. It mirrors the situation for all UK companies although the tiniest concerns spend nearly £700.
Spend per employee on system software by all printing companies is half that for UK organisations. The comparative ratio is smallest for printing firms with 1000+ staff whilst those employing fewer than 10 people outspend their UK counterparts.
Publishing & Printing companies with 1000+ employees spend half their IT budgets on staff. This is ahead of that for all large Manufacturers. For all other sizes of organisation, Publishers & Printers outlay on IT staff is notably smaller.
The larger the Publishing & Printing enterprise the greater the % of turnover is devoted to IT expenditure. Overall the proportion is nearly twice that for the UK as a whole.
