In fact, 86% of respondents said their productivity has been hampered by technology failing on them, and 77% said defective technology have caused them to miss deadlines and business opportunities.

However, while technology obviously plays a huge part in making sure a business runs smoothly, two thirds of leaders admitted they were overwhelmed by the amount of technology available.
