There are two key themes in a survey released by FileMaker: Not all small companies are using database software and even those that are have significant concerns. The survey found that 48 percent of businesses with fewer than 100 employees use paper-based systems to track vital data such as information about customers. Forty-five percent said that would "grow significantly" if more of their systems were automated. The survey, which was conducted last month by Greenfield Online, found that 47 percent of respondents from companies that use spreadsheet software for non-financial purposes are concerned that employees spend too much time looking for specific information. Forty-two percent of respondents are concerned about the difficulty of accessing accurate information. Seventy-seven percent of companies surveyed said they plan to spend about the same or more on technology in 2006 than this year.
