What is your Digital Potential?

Let’s Take Stock of your Digital Potential

 Too few SMEs exploit the business advantages offered by looking at their digital potential. As digital applies to all sectors and all business, no SME can pretend digital does not matter to them; businesses can simply ill afford to discount the value of digital for their business. 

Some of the respected business and industry forums highlight several important issues. The CBI reports that whilst 45% of organisations have a longer term strategy, around 25% of small business have no idea about their digital plans at all. The Department of BIS reported that some 34% of SMEs had still no website. MakeUK stresses that SMEs often do not have the spare capacity or the additional skills required to undertake digital transformation – even if they have identified this as a strategic necessity. 

You may wonder how to start addressing the current barriers in the business and plan your way forward so that your business can reap the benefits of digital ways of working. The borwell partner network can help!
