By the end of 2019 there were around 4.8 million cloud telephony users in the UK, which represented an 800,000 user increase on the previous year. The majority of that growth came from medium sized business (50~249 employees) but in 2020 the expectation is for the small sized businesses (1~49 employees) to contribute much more to the spiralling increase. Why? Because prior to the COVID 19 pandemic small business did little to provide employees with a remote working opportunity; with only 20pct having any video conference capability. Small business has been forced to change and move rapidly into the “cloud” to survive and ultimately flourish as we start to emerge from the COVID 19 crisis.
