Are you still using paper-based processes to manage your business? Could you benefit from free advice on how to adapt to digital technologies?

Through the new Help to Grow: Digital scheme you can access free, impartial guidance to help you identify the digital needs of your business, plus vouchers to help cover the cost of new digital technology solutions.

The vouchers will be available to small and medium-sized (SME) businesses in the UK that have been trading for more than 12 months and that have between 5 and 249 employees. It will cover up to half of the costs, up to a maximum of £5,000, of pre-approved, new-to-firm digital technology solutions. Initially financial discounts will also be available to SMEs to support the uptake of new digital solutions such as customer relationship management, accountancy and e-commerce systems. Through the scheme you can also access support to help assess purchasing options and implement the new technologies into your business.

A separate Help to Grow: Management scheme, which will offer 50 hour of training over three months, is also being launched to help business owners boost their productivity.
