Overview

‘Although the uptake of Internet technological and digital innovations by businesses has advanced at an accelerating rate during the course of the past three decades, in certain industry sectors, IT adoption by SMEs has lagged behind its larger competitors'

This is particularly seen to be the case in relation to smaller independent businesses in the retail hospitality sector. It is this issue that the current essay seeks to examine, focusing particularly on the Public House sector.
