Why SMEs need to start their Digital Transformation now

12 October @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub

The word ‘digital’ has been a buzz word for the last decade or two, and whilst it is generally agreed that businesses need to embrace digital technology in some form, whether that’s using e-commerce and digital marketing, or utilising new technology for product development or manufacturing, many businesses still don’t know how to go about this.

Can business afford to still delay? Research has shown that SMEs that use digital technology as a part of their business processes have a 22% higher revenue and an estimated 10% increase in productivity. Additionally, 38% of SMEs see a rise in sales after becoming connected to the internet. Despite this, one in three businesses still don’t have a website and 11% of SMEs say they did not use the internet or have access to it at all.*

Join our lead discussants including Dinah Turner from Stepping Into Business and Danny Manu from My Manu to discuss:

  • The latest evidence about the benefits of digital transformation to SMEs
  • The latest products ad services available to support SMEs some local successes; and
  • The role of Government.

Places are limited to please register your free place. The event will be followed by networking drinks.
