Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) employing 15-350 staff are the engine room of the UK economy. Boasting some of the UK’s most entrepreneurial and fast-growing businesses, the SME sector is a key market for telecoms, IT and business equipment suppliers.

SMEs are often the first to embrace new working practices and technologies.With annual budgets of £84,900 in companies employing 11-100 staff and £556,000 in companies with 100+ employees*, no supplier can afford to ignore this important
sector of the economy.

Business Info has been targeting managers in SMEs for more than eight years.

Published by Solutions Business Publishing, Business Info remains the only national, monthly business technology and workplace magazine exclusively to target buyers and specifiers of business equipment in companies employing 15-350 office-based staff.
Readers are typically directors in smaller businesses, and IT, telecoms and facilities managers in medium-sized organisations.

Colourful, lively and informative, every month Business Info is read by more than 50,000 buyers or specifiers in businesses across all industry sectors including finance, local and central government, retail, legal, professional services, insurance, education and health.

With unrivalled coverage of business technology and workplace issues for SMEs, Business Info provides advertisers with the perfect vehicle for reaching this dynamic and lucrative market.
