Payroll and Bookkeeping Services in Australia Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Melbourne, Australia, Nov 15, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- The Payroll and Bookkeeping Services industry in Australia has churned through challenging conditions over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to grow marginally by an annualised 0.5% over the five years through 2012-13 to reach $2.16 billion. The trend towards outsourcing provided the most benefit to demand for payroll and bookkeeping services. According to IBISWorld industry analyst Aries Nuguid, "Australian businesses increasingly outsourced functions to the industry so they could focus on their core competencies". The greater interconnectedness of businesses through online platforms has also supported the trend toward outsourcing. This has compounded with the higher number of businesses in Australia.

However, higher unemployment slowed down work volume and revenue growth. More importantly, poor business sentiment caused the industry's customers to become more price-sensitive. Consequently, competition within the industry intensified, which hurt prices, revenue and profit margins. Industry revenue is expected to grow 1.9% in 2012-13, which represents the industry's continued path to recovery. "Businesses will continue to increasingly outsource their payroll and bookkeeping functions," Nuguid adds. Meanwhile, higher business confidence will mean reduced price competition. However, higher unemployment will dampen demand for industry services.

The Payroll and Bookkeeping Services industry in Australia is expected to flourish over the next five years. The number of Australian business will grow and boost demand for industry services. Furthermore, these businesses are more likely to outsource and support revenue growth. Business sentiment is also expected to improve, which will lead to less price sensitivity among the industry's customers. The Payroll and Bookkeeping Services Industry has a low level of market share concentration. The two largest players are Automatic Data Processing and Talent2 International. The industry is fragmented and is populated by many small players. However, there is a great disparity between the market share concentration in respective industry segments.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
