Small businesses appear to perform relatively well, but actually exhibit the widest fluctuations in 齿轮 ratio (0.32 to 889.04). Medium businesses were less vulnerable on average, though 齿轮 still ranged from 583.84 at worst to 2.56 at best. Large enterprises, despite very high turnovers were, on average, more vulnerable and slower to react to market fluctuation than their smaller equivalents.
Large scale wholesale enterprises were the most risky propositions based on 齿轮, followed by large insurers and travel companies. Smaller retail, insurance and finance companies also fared poorly in the research when compared to other market sectors. 制造业 presented a relatively constant response across all scale of enterprise, with a higher risk factor as scales of operations increased.

ReadSoft UK董事总经理Simon Shorthose说： “我们在这项研究中看到的财务效率低下是缺乏对业务流程洞察力的症状。这会导致控制不力，引入风险，潜在的欺诈行为和违反合规性的情况。小型企业以及在最近的经济时代努力保持领先的企业可能会想到这种情况，但是看到这种低效率水平，在大型和大型知名企业中如此普遍，确实令人担忧。”
