By Help to Grow - 01st August 2022

Officials of the Help to Grow: Digital Scheme have announced ‘key improvements’ to allow more firms to benefit.

The scheme has expanded eligibility so more businesses are able to take part. By reducing the minimum number of employees the business has from five to one, it is thought up to 1.2 million more UK business will be able to access discounts worth up to £5,000 on approved software.

Officials have also launched an expanded offer, adding e-Commerce software to support businesses to sell online and reach new markets. This includes helping them to manage their inventory, take payments and gather data and insights on customers' needs. Businesses which adopt e-Commerce software see on average a 7.5% increase in employee sales over 3 years.  

 A spokesperson for the scheme added: “Furthermore, the Help to Grow: Digital scheme will also support one-to-one advice for small and medium-size businesses on digital tech adoption. We have opened applications for advice platforms to partner with us from today with the aim of the service being in place for SMEs later this year."
