The Help to Grow Digital scheme to support smaller businesses in adopting digital technologies is now open for applications.

Under the scheme, eligible businesses can receive discounts of up to £5,000 off the retail price of approved digital accounting and CRM software from leading technology suppliers. This software will assist them in effectively managing finances and building customer relationships, and help them to scale up.

Businesses can also access practical support and advice on how to choose the right digital technologies to boost their growth and productivity through a new online platform.

A toolkit to promote the scheme is available here.

Commenting on the new fund, Saffron Grant FIS Digital Champion stated:

“This is another example of the support out there for SMEs to take that giant leap into the digital space that in many cases is only a small step!  Through the FIS free digital helpline we can help to talk you through the options and help you identify how you can make use of funding of this type.  The digital revolution is happening in construction, bit it comes with a lot of noise and misinformation.  The work we are doing with FIS is about helping to tap into the right support and to find your dightal path.”
