The TalkTalk Business What's Your Business Grade? survey has found that loads of companies are seeing the value of investing in their systems, but there's still work to do.

One of the key findings was that more than a quarter of businesses saw productivity soar by more than 30 per cent as a result of recent investment in IT and telecoms, which should act as further incentive for other businesses to spend on their systems.

And it's high time that these firms follow suit, with more than half (53 per cent) acknowledging that their current telecoms will only be good for another couple of years, whilst six per cent admit that their system is already out of date and affecting their productivity.

Fortunately, nearly a third (29 per cent) anticipate further investment in the short-term, suggesting that UK business is ready to future proof itself by placing its money where its mouth is.
