In a series of six research reports, Telstra Smarter Business™ explores the trends affecting Retail, professional services, construction, healthcare, finance and manufacturing.

Running a small business is tough. Between competing demands on your time, managing staff, ensuring your cash flow and delivering to your customers’ expectations, planning for the future can get lost in the mix.

And a business is only as good as the information it operates on – so when that planning does come around, it’s important to make sure you’re working off the right information. To ensure you’re planning smarter, we’ve compiled local research into five, industry-specific small business reports.

The reports include a snapshot of the market today, challenges both existing and imminent, and explore some of the ways Aussie small businesses can adapt to ensure they’re staying productive and profitable well into the future. This is rounded out with stories from businesses like yours, and tips you can implement today to make a difference.
